I see this, on last 30 years SW industries.
What happend with nother large SW battle? PC OS's, PC's desktop app SW, etc.
What I see on large VMS's systems
15y ago: a lot SW vendors offering, same with very good technolgy diferentiation feacture, other close solutions. USD5K/channel (fixed dome SD+SW)
10y ago: multibrand VMS, and first steps into HW standarizations, Onvif. USD3K/channel (fixed dome HD+SW)
5y ago: full Onvif features, better compressions and managent option, more stable plattaform. but USD 2K/channel (3MP+SW)
Now: China offering, (mine not only HW offering) VMS battle & pricing drop.. USD 1K/channel) 5MP+SW
If this's not a dead of glory days, can anyone tell me what is?
That's becouse from 2010 my focus is services.
