Kudos to Axis For Fixing Their Deceptive Commercial

Author: John Honovich, Published on Feb 22, 2016

Two months ago, Axis released a deceptive commercial. We called them on that immediately but Axis did nothing.

Last week, we contrasted how Axis' competitor, Avigilon, released a real commercial. Now, Axis has taken action.

First, Axis added a disclaimer at the end of the deceptive commercial with a text message noting the video was not shot with an Axis camera even though the whole commercial implied that it was. Now, Axis has released a new real video of their 4K speeddome.
