Manufacturer Alleges Magazine is Biased

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jun 14, 2013

Rockoff Security's eponymous CEO has alleged that the most well known Asia security magazine, ASMAG, is biased .... against his products. His specific criticism is that "A&S Magazine[s] continue to pretend that IP cameras will soon take over surveillance," which evidently is a clear sign of bias.

Ironically, he notes that this magazine's issue "contains more ads for HDcctv/HD-SDI cameras than for IP cameras."
