Can Navco's VideoMetrixs VSaaS Compete?

Author: John Honovich, Published on Aug 31, 2011

US national security integrator Navco is the latest to throw its hat into the VSaaS ring with an offering called Videometrixs. One immediate differentiator is a new twist on the pricing/packaging of the overall solution. However, we do think it is enough to make the offering competitive, suffering from similar fundamental flaws of the many copy-cat VSaaS providers launching monthly.

Let's start with a review of the key points about the service:
