Network Optix Favorability Results 2019

By John Honovich, Published Mar 11, 2019, 01:23pm EDT

Network Optix is arguably the last new VMS. Founded in 2010, more than a decade after most client/server VMS offerings, the company has become a factor in the VMS market. However, this has largely been through other brands, as they are better known (especially to American buyers) via their OEMs such as Digital Watchdog (Spectrum) and Hanwha Techwin (Wave) (tested).

IPVM integrator statistics and comments reflect those factors, with a solid net positive rating but high levels of neutrality:
