Ask Hanwha what North America's growth will be in 2019 and what it expects to be in 2020.Last year, I read somewhere that it grew 40% in value. Was the growth like that this year?
I'm also curious about intelligent cameras of each camera makers. What kind of chip do you use? What kind of analysis is possible? What time does it start shipping? (For example, do Hanwha, Axis, and Avigilon already ship new intelligent cameras?) Are there special educational programs for system integrators and dealers?
#3, thanks for sharing that link. I spoke with Hanwha who clarified that the Americas number includes both B2B and B2C. B2C is down (as the slides show) and B2B is up. The 40% number is for B2B, the net number is lower because of the fall in B2C.
Here is an excerpt from the Q3 slide:
I don't know how much of the fall in B2C is due to things like Wyze or transitioning away from the Samsung brand, etc.

Anyvision... going down... JH gave me some ribbing for my choice of words for this start-up and their investors... keep watching. Another note... these LiDAR companies have no clue... it is great to see another sensor added to the mix, but these companies are so clueless about the need to tie into a VMS it is laughable. They expect "integrators" to do the work... ha ha ha...
The sense I get is that, generally, LiDAR companies are mostly in the experimental phase for physical security, as in they know there is a market for analytics and they think maybe their devices have potential. It's expensive and with analytics getting better, it feels like they have mostly niche potential in video surveillance. For example, they claim high performance in high density applications.
This was our second year exhibiting at ISC East. I personal.y have no complaints. The show was well organized, traffic was incredible on Day One and, though lighter on Day Two, still steady and in fact higher quality with attendees spending more time in the booth and showing a greater interest in our solutions.
Qognify did not have a booth. I heard they had people at the show. We have not followed up with them recently. However, they did release a new dot version of Ocularis last month which puts them on a similar development path as Milestone...
For what it's worth, this latest version has a lot of small improvements that were waaaay overdue. So I'm happy that they're actually getting stuff done. Just I hope that they're able to regain some of their usership before Qognify decides it's not worth salvaging.
a 6% growth in verified attendees compared to 2018
ISC East clarified to IPVM that the 6% was for "Verified Attendees (dealers, installers, integrators, end-users etc.)" which excludes exhibitors. The larger 7,600 number does include exhibitors but most security shows have roughly 1/3rd of all attendees be exhibitor staff operating booths.
The show added additional attendees crossing over from the infosec side:
Our ISC core attendance increase does not include the cross-over attendance from the co-located Infosecurity ISACA North America event (also run by Reed). Scanning reports show that over 800 over their attendees crossed over to the ISC side of the show floor.
