ASIS GSX 2018 Show Report

By: IPVM Team, Published on Sep 25, 2018

In the first major US show since the US government ban of Dahua and Hikvision was passed into law, the mega Chinese companies were in retreat and rivals happy to take advantage of it.

Hanwha had numerous huge banners touting 'trust' and 'Made in Korea', thinly veiled references to their Chinese rivals, such as the one at the front entrance of the Las Vegas Convention Center:

Meanwhile, Hikvision 'banned' itself off the show floor, a 15-minute walk into the pavilion of the adjacent Westgate hotel, where they set up their booth displays in a sparsely attended exhibition, as the video below mid-day showed:

This is a stark contrast to ASIS 2017 (see IPVM's full report) where both manufacturers were front and center.

Inside the show report, we examine:

  • Most important new entry
  • ASIS overall attendance Day 1 and Day 2 decline
  • Ambitious Access Startup
  • Decline of AI marketing hype
  • S2 packed after acquisition
  • Avigilon's AI demonstration
  • Axis new cameras
  • Axis 'whack a camera' game
  • LIDAR for security analytics integrated with Axis and Milestone
  • Cell phone surveillance tracking and alerting integrated with Indigovision
  • Speco facial recognition
  • Securitas 'Stands Up To Cancer'
  • ADT positions itself among legends
  • Anyvision Big Booth
  • Salient new VMS Finally Coming
  • Shooting Active Shooter Simulation
  • The most free beer ever at a trade show?
