Manufacturer Alleges Magazine is Biased

By: 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."

Indeed, ASMAG has had more positive things to say about HDcctv/HD-SDI than perhaps all other security publications around the world, who largely ignore this space.

Last year, we called the HDcctv's efforts, the worst security marketing ever. This public attack on ASMAG, the closest thing to an ally the Alliance has, is another amazing example of that.
