Hikvision launched a new commercial-focused VSaaS, Hik-ProConnect, but what does it add to the existing Hik-Connect?

In this note, we examine Hik-ProConnect's positioning and how it relates to HikConnect.

There is an audio watermark in the Hik YouTube video, around the last 10 seconds or so of the video. My guess is that this video was not intended for release... Typically this is put in by the agency designing the video before stock video or audio is purchased/licenses. The watermark could also be from the background music. But it doesn't say much as to the professionalism, as does the use of a computer synthesized voice, which has a hard time saying certain words or emphasizes syllables or words in weird ways.

It is also surprising that AWS would openly let Hik use their services with all of the bans and blacklisting going on with Chinese-state controlled companies.

I wonder if this platform will be just as good as all their other super intuitive and easy-to-navigate apps...

I see this offering but choose to ignore it based on the human rights and national security issues with that company

Cool that you have an international audience that 1 would benefit from this evaluation and 2 doesn't care about human rights or national security #wink
