Author: John Honovich, Published on Jun 04, 2015

Wow. The shots at Avigilon continue to intensify.

Canada's financial TV network usually cheerleads for Canadian companies like Avigilon. But not right now.

In this note, we review the charges made and what they mean to Avigilon.

I heard similar things about Steve Jobs..;)

Yeah, well, Steve Jobs had Johnny Ive.

I've said the same sorts of things about most of my former bosses

"crazy probably not the right term... a little bit unpredictable and doesn’t like to listen to other people too much."

I love how after he said "crazy" he realized he probably shouldn't have said it... too late...

My prediction: John will get comments about being an Avigilon AND Arecont hater ;)

Wow, that's a good one.

The best part about it is it appears to be a genuine off-the-cuff answer to a real caller, with minimal if any prep. on the question.

You can tell by the fact that the Analyst would have used A.F.'s name right away, but perhaps wasnt 100% confident doing so. Also shows when he stumbles around a tad, describing Avigilon's business as "cameras, camera software for industrial uses".

It's another confirmation that the Bulls of Bay Street no longer automatically bless all done in the name of the Fernández, the Schmode, and the Healthy CFO.

Short seller?

Avigilon sell camera in the Middle East Market for very cheap Price

less than camera made in China cost

All Avigilon Camera Range is very cheap compare to Axis , Bosch , Haeco, Sony, and Pelco

Jawad,

I had not heard that. In North America, Avigilon's pricing is fairly similar to Axis, Bosch, Sony, etc.

Jawad,

Where have you seen Avigilon selling at low prices? Any examples?

I had first hand experience with this attitude on one of my earlier projects. The ethics and professiolism of company come ito play just as much as the quality and performance of their products, when making selections for a design/RFP.

It's too bad, beacuse thier local sales rep is a great guy and very knowledgable.
