Author: IPVM Team, Published on Dec 28, 2017

Hikvision North America has been relatively disciplined the past 5 months, reducing the number of sales and the breadth of what is on sale.

No more.

After hitting a record price cutting run in the first half of 2017, Hikvision NA is back with its biggest sale of 2017.

Update: And again, a second time in 3 weeks.

Inside, we examine this sale, what has changed, how it compares and reflects on Hikvision's positioning and the overall market.
