NLSS / ATV Partnership Examined

By Brian Karas, Published on Jun 13, 2017

NLSS has been one of the most ambitious security / surveillance startups. After selling his last startup, Sypixx, to Cisco, Pete Jankowski [link no longer available] founded NLSS, marketing it as the "Next Level in Video Management", combining access control, video analytics, cloud management, etc.

However, NLSS has been challenged to gain wide spread adoption.

Recently, NLSS has begun a partnership with ATV, in an atypical move that is intended to leverage strengths of both companies.

IPVM spoke with ATV executives and NLSS' founder/CEO about this partnership, and how the two companies are going to market. In this report we analyze the ATV/NLSS partnership.

Please forgive me for being foggy on the details, it was years ago and I tend to forget painful experiences but my brief experience a few years ago with NLSS was not very good. From what I can remember, my biggest complaint was their weak transaction (activity, journal) methodology. I think it was limited time-span issue. Hopefully they have addressed this by now and or someone else could chime in and verify this?

 

Update: Just looked through my notes from July 2013, per their tech support at that time, transactions ("Data") was only stored for 90 days max.
