Exacq's Low Cost LC vs Milestone Arcus

By: Sarit Williams, Published on Aug 07, 2013

A key Exacq competitive advantage has been their appliance lines, especially compared to Milestone, who essentially had none (i.e., the HP workstation). However, this spring, Milestone released Arcus, a new VMS platform, embedded into third party devices such as from LenovoEMC and Razberi. Now, Exacq has released LC, its lowest cost line yet. In this note, we examine the positioning of the LC series comparing it both to Milestone Arcus offerings and to Asian NVRs.
