I thought the one last year was great. Looking forward to this year.
IPVM Conference 2022 Concluded
Thank you for a successful second annual conference where we debated the future of physical security, with live testing, networking, and food.
Conference Sessions led by IPVM Founder John Honovich revealed below:
Day 1 - Wednesday, Sept 28:
9 am - 12 pm & 1 pm - 4 pm, Live Testing:
HID alternatives: Allegion, Farpoint Data, WaveLynx, 3MillID and STid
Access Control: Brivo, Feenics, Openpath, PDK, Verkada
Multi-imager cameras: Axis, Avigilon, Bosch, Dahua, Hanwha, Hikvision Mobotix, Vivotek.
Facial Recognition: Avigilon, Briefcam, Dahua, Hikvision, Oosto, Turing, Verkada.
VSaaS: Ava, Axis + Your Six, Eagle Eye, Genetec, Verkada, and Qumulex.
9 am - Crisis for PRC China
The PRC government subsidiary has become the world's largest video surveillance manufacturer but now it faces off against the world's most powerful country. We examine the outcome.
10 am - Motorola Acquisition Spree
10 in the last few years, 2 so far this year. Nearly $3 billion has been spent. Will Motorola dominate, blow themselves up, or somewhere in between?
11 am - Venture Funding Collapse
Last year was the best ever for physical security funding but in the last 6 months, most of the SPACs had their valuation plummet and Silicon Valley is now suddenly nervous. We examine the impact.
1 pm - The Fall of Axis
Axis was the world's Western biggest manufacturer for years. Now, we examine threats to the company both from inside and outside and the future of the giant.
2 pm - The Rise of Non-Video Sensors
The 2010s was the era of megapixel cameras. This decade is witnessing the rise of others including environmental, LiDAR, RADAR, and more. We examine how this changes the market.
3 pm - The Future of Weapons Detectors
Metal detectors were a sleepy market for decades. Now "weapons" detectors promise to change screening and create a multi-billion new market. We examine the opportunities and challenges herein.
4 pm - The Ascent of Access Control
For years, access control has been viewed as the slower, smaller sibling to video surveillance in physical security. We examine the rise of cloud and mobile and how access is being transformed.
Day 2 - Thursday, Sept 29:
Live Testing Agenda
9 am - 12 pm Multi-imagers, Analytics, Access Control & VSaaS
9 am - VSaaS Replacing VMS
NVRs and VMSes are being quickly replaced by VSaaS, either by new entrants or incumbents adopting. We examine how this is happening and what impact will it have.
10 am - Direct To Cloud Disrupts Video
Ava, Verkada, and others are disrupting the fundamentals of video surveillance by eliminating the VMS / VSaaS. We examine how this is happening and what impact will it have.
11 am - The Market In 2030
AI, Facial Recognition, Cloud, Mobile, and more are changing the market. We evaluate how this will most help and hurt by the end of this decade.
Watch Now: IPVM Conference 2022 Live Testing
What's included with registration:
- Live testing of numerous manufacturer products side by side
- Debate trends with executives and IPVM leadership in the main hall
- Food (2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 1 dinner)
Registration is $999, 100% refundable thru June 1, 2022. Limited to 300 people.
Come see live product tests, run by IPVM staff, on video analytics, facial recognition, cloud access control, mobile access control, and more. This has never been done before. Instead of manufactured controlled demos, we will set up competitors side by side and show what really works and what does not.
Products tested will include Avigilon, Axis, Bosch, Brivo, Eagle Eye, Genetec, Hanhwa, Meraki, Openpath, and Verkada. A final list will be provided, if you have suggestions, please share in the comments.
Test products yourself to see how they work and do not, side by side against competitors.
Trends / Debate
Debate the biggest trends in video surveillance with IPVM's Founder John Honovich, numerous executives, and other attendees.
IPVM will start each session with a concise explanation of a topic's core issues and then open the floor to a moderated Q/A and debate amongst attendees and IPVM.
The goal is for attendees to interact with each other and IPVM, gaining a deeper understanding of strategic challenges and how it impacts their organizations. We did this successfully last year with a richness of debate and discussion unprecedented in this market. We are excited to do more and better this year.
Of course, like IPVM itself, these conferences will have no sponsors nor advertisers, etc.
No Mask / Vaccine Requirement
Neither vaccination nor masks are required at the Conference, in line with current local law. This was removed on March 2, 2022.
The Conference is being held at the Newark Liberty International Airport Marriott, which is located on-premise at the Airport, making it simple to fly in as well as easy to be reached from the I-95 Interstate and the NY Metropolitan area. The video below overviews the 585 room hotel:
A complimentary shuttle is available from & to Newark Liberty International Airport - EWR.
for a show of this expanded size and magnitude, you might want to think about having a real pro MC the event...
You really miss him! He's got 70+ videos on Vimeo including:
I don't think it makes sense this year but in the future, having a pro entertainer could be a nice touch!
Captain Americas Hanging With Harris - ISC West 2012
What about having booths? I would have loved to have one.
No booths. This is a philosophical decision that (1) we don't want to accept money for sponsorship and (2) there's lots of other spaces with booths.
We do offer company presentations and do plan to expand that and our overall live testing as we expand year by year.
What I liked the most is the -REAL TALK- about brands and the market. Looking forward this year with the addition of the live testing.
Thanks #2! To elaborate for those not there last year, the format was a ~10 minute opening presentation (mostly by me) and then ~45 minutes of discussion and debate moderated by us, e.g. we might answer questions or people might disagree with me or short exchanges between attendees on various topics.
Maybe the most notable was when the ACLU's senior technology analyst impromptu debated 2 of the largest video surveillance manufacturers. That was a fascinating exchange to see where all parties were coming from.
Looking forward to another great event by IPVM! Excited to learn more about the latest and greatest in video surveillance and the new product testing format in action.
Update: Neither vaccination nor masks are required at the Conference, in line with current local law. This was removed on March 2, 2022.
Hey, we just added a video detailing live testing at the conference
I'd love to fly over from the UK for this, but I'm stuck after some bunny stole my passport last week in Rome. Is there an online version?
The Conference is in-person only, there is no online access.
I introduced the idea of tele-presence robots at industry trade shows back at ISCW 2010.
nobody thought it was funny 12 years ago and I am confident that nobody will find it funny today - but I spent some tome creating it back in the day so I continue to bring it up any chance I get.
What if people attended remotely by using a Knightscope robot? Product testing + higher attendance rolled into one! I can see no downsides to this. (As long as there are no pools around, of course.)
Unfortunately going to have to miss this year as it conflicts with another show for me.
A lot of Hikvision, Dahua, and Verkada in the testing... Sucks, would like to see more NDAA market leaders (can you fit in Hanwha too). Also, anyone installing Verkada is part of the growing problem in this industry IMHO.
would like to see more NDAA market leaders
Who are we missing from these "market leaders"? We are testing Hanwha as well as Network Optix and Eagle Eye (who OEM to Hanwha). And Axis and Avigilon and Ava, etc.
FYI Verkada is NDAA compliant
for those not attending the IPVM Conference, will you be posting pics throughout the event like Kyan did for GSX?
I know the platform is different but those that can't be there might like to follow along at least at a superficial (visual) level.
if Sonny shows up with his cat, I win a $500 side bet with my psychotherapist.
Am I understanding that there are two tracks going on concurrently - product testing and strategic-type presentations at the same time?
Yes, correct. One can mix and match (i.e., spend some time on the testing side, some time at the conference side) or just one side the entire time.
Are conversations with or overheard by IPVM at the conference considered "off-the-record?" Even if IPVM didn't use names, reporting something (for example) like "a representative from Motorola disgreed with X or Y" could easily reveal the source.
Conversations are not for attribution by name or company unless we get permission afterwards, so e.g., if Ed for IQinvision says 'XXXXX' we might say an attendee said 'XXXXX' but not the person's company or name unless they agreed to explicitly.
And, to elaborate, the reason is to allow attendees to talk about industry dynamics without them fearing that they are representing their entire company extemporaneously. Note: there are no manufacturer speakers or presenters but all attendees, including manufacturers, are welcome to join the conference open discussions. This worked quite well last yaer.
am I the only one who thinks that the IPVM conference/show should be covered here on IPVM like other, less valuable, industry shows are covered here on IPVM?
seems like something an intern (or Derek, if he was still there) could provide for those that couldn't make the IPVM show this year.
It was good to see everyone - hope to see you all next year.
