NICE is one of the largest video surveillance vendors yet the company's products are not very well known nor understood. Over the past decade, NICE has been widely considered a leader in high end DVRs/recorders. As the market has shifted to IP, many of the leading DVR providers have evolved their IP offerings. However, it was unclear even to us where NICE stood or what progress they have made. Like many high end vendors, publicly available details for NICE's products are scarce.
In this report, we examine NICE's IP video offering based on a combination of hands-on testing, interviews and private documentation review.
We look at both their VMS software and appliance offering including the 3 product tiers they recently introduced. Moreover, we examine their broad array of advanced features.
We believe the two best comparisons for NICE's offering are Genetec and DvTel and recommend you compare this report to our Genetec test results and DvTel test results.
