Open vs End-to-End Systems: Integrator Statistics 2019

By: IPVM Team, Published on Nov 11, 2019

Preference for open systems is on the decline, according to new IPVM statistics.

We asked integrators:

For video surveillance systems, do you prefer open architecture or end-to-end (i.e., cameras and recorders/VMS from different manufacturers or a single manufacturer for both)? Why? Who?

This is the successor to the Open vs End-To-End Solutions 2016 report.

In this report, we examine statistics based on responses from 150+ integrators and examine the trends they reveal.
