Sad to hear IPVM is given the "no comment" treatment from some.

In fairness, some of the 'no comment' is a function of this being a regional show and regional employees being understandably directed not to talk to media.

For example, we just got an email from a senior Hikvision person responding about a test we are doing so people that are most appropriate and can speak for a company normally respond.

I hate to sound too Canadian but as an "ex-Aimetis" guy we appreciate the coverage north of the border.

Canada always has and continues to offer some great technology to the broader security industry.

US: Buy American!

Canada: I'm sorry, but we have some great technology eh!

On a serious note, I was expecting to see more high tech/AI/analytics startups, considering the proximity to Toronto and Waterloo. On the plus side for the show, there was not many empty booths, so maybe that keeps them out. I will email Canasa and see what their thoughts are as well.

We may say sorry often but that doesn't mean we don't bite! We are just sorry that we have to bite. héhé!
