Camio Wins 24,000 Camera AI VSaaS Customer

By: John Honovich, Published on Jun 29, 2018

Silicon Valley Artificial Intelligent VSaaS startup Camio has announced it has won a 24,000 camera deal, a sizeable system for a small company.

Camio is one of the most technologically sophisticated video surveillance startups (see our testing Camio Natural Language Processing Tested and Ex-Googler Startup Camio Cloud Video Tested). However, the engineering-focused company has struggled at sales and marketing.

In this note, we examine the 24,000 camera deal, based on speaking with Camio, as well as examine the company's challenges vs competitors like Eagle Eye, Hikvision and Dahua.
