VMS Export Shootout - Avigilon, Dahua, Exacq, Genetec, Hikvision, Milestone

Author: Sean Patton, Published on Sep 13, 2018

When crimes, accidents or problems occur, exporting video from one's video surveillance system is critical to proving incidents.

But who does it the best and worst?

We tested 6 manufacturers - Avigilon, Dahua, Exacq, Genetec, Hikvision and Milestone to see who did best and worst:

vms export shootout

We tested them across 10 categories rating each strong, average or poor, as the preview below shows:

Inside, we detail the full results including who won and lost overall and how the systems performed across each of those 10 categories:
