Hikvision Enterprise Expansion ASIS 2016 Review

By: Brian Karas, Published on Sep 13, 2016

Hikvision is treating ASIS 2106 like an ISC West-level show, showing lots of new and upcoming products, as well as hosting large customer appreciation events.

ASIS is often a show where manufacturers pull back the spending, and have a slightly more subdued presence, but Hikvision is not taking that approach, in this report we cover Hikvision's presence in Orlando at ASIS 2016.

Were there any hints at any impeding North American access control releases?

That eight sensor panoramic is a monster!

I did not see or hear anything about access control in the time I spent looking around and talking with people there.

Double oops. This conversation is 2 weeks old ;/

Was there any mention of h.265 in their panels?

For awhile now they have been touting h.265 in their shows, but they have recently downplayed it in favor of their own h.264+. It would be kinda of weird to just drop it all together from the message, but...

No mentions of H.265, though a few other vendors have been promoting it, particularly Hanwha.

Where they showing iVMS-5200 yet?

No, and when asked about it, it seems like it may still be a ways off.

I don't think it is that far off, but AFAIK ISC West is supposed to be the big unveiling. Most of the US sites atm are not being charged licensing per channel as they are essentially beta testing the systems. However, the pricing is finalized as of ASIS. If you are a dealer you can get a demo of 5200 if you go up the channel through your RSM. Everything has to be approved by California though. It's still roughly the 500 cam project minimum for 5200 right now.

You aren't missing anything atm. It's pretty clunky to use right now. I have no doubt they're in the process of making it better but currently, it's not great.

Client side is fine but the installer side is ugh.

The worst part about it is naming cameras.

Ever tried naming 50 cameras all called Camera_1 with no image to figure out which is which?

Oof, that sounds like a nightmare.

Talk about a PITA!!

NAming the cameras is an issue in Hivision GUI. WHat I hate themot is the fact that even when you mame the camera through its owen website t .. yet this name is not pulled by the NVR to which the camera is attached although everything else is know by the NVR ... Worse on the OSD the name you just entered is not displayed , you have to enter the name manually in the OSD field !! Wtef :(

At this point they should just attach a $100 bill to each camera and sell it for $100.

The coffee isn't made in china. I checked at isc west.
