ISC West 2012 Show Best / Worst

Author: John Honovich, Published on Mar 30, 2012

We spent the week on the ISC West show floor checking out what is interesting and have come away with a series of observations and images.

Here are the topics/companies covered:

  • Show Floor Traffic
  • Ingram Micro
  • Samsung
  • Interlogix
  • Mobotix
  • Vicon
  • Milestone
  • OnSSI
  • Pelco
  • Tyco
  • Bosch
  • Arecont Vision
  • CSST

Overall

The show floor looked filled with vendor boothes, with no empty boothes visible in any main area. This is a bullish sign for vendor spending, at the very least.

Traffic too is quite strong across the board from side to side.

On the other hand, new product releases continue to be fairly weak and limited in total number. This is a negative surprise and seems worse than last year.

Traffic, as normal, slowed each day. However, even on Friday, the last day of the show, traffic was decent whereas often that day is a ghost town.

New Product Releases

This post covers what is happening on the floor. For detailed reviews, see our 35+ New Product Review Directory.

Interlogix

For ISC West, Interlogix released a cake. Even worse, it looks like a competitor's camera (Arecont SurroundView) with multiple imagers inside a dome bubble:
