They sound good. I like the fact they are specifically designed for security as this could be used as a differentiator when bidding for projects.

@Brian. Do they have sticky MAC enabled by default for security devices?

I will ask for clarification on the sticky MAC, good question.

I have ordered a 24 Port for testing purposes at our facility and will provide additional feedback once it is installed.

Charles, please post your feedback and experiences with the product once you receive it.

You can review Vivocam Switch by Vivotek. I think they have more advanced features.

I saw their release as well and it looks as if they are just trying to re-promote existing features/capabilities. I am planning to stop by their booth for a quick chat to see if there are truly new features/enhancements, but not expecting anything substantial.
