Panasonic not only bought an open VMS provider, VideoInsight, Panasonic is now giving away free VMS licenses for their cameras. Plus, the VMS includes free access control.
Though Panasonic has talked about selling 'solutions' for years, they never had much on the VMS nor access side.
And though Panasonic has a global brand, Video Insight is relatively unknown outside of the US southwest and their historically strongest market, education.
We tested Video Insight v6 to see how it compares to major VMSes such as Exacq, Avigilon, Genetec, and Milestone on these key questions and more:
- What features, if any, are lacking compared to mid level and enterprise VMS systems?
- How does this version compare to Video Insight historically?
- How well does their free access control work?
- Can this compete against leading providers?
