Note: Pelco has released new firmware (2.30) which they say improves image quality results. We are retesting now and will update this report as soon as possible.

Has the new firmware been tested? Version 2.35 is now out. Thanks.

They should release models the same size and mounting as their previous most popular models with adapters or mounting holes to match popular Chinese manufacturers for easy conversions and updates.

Just a suggestion.

...the Sarix Professional 3 dome offered average performance compared to Hikvision's Performance Series...

The Pelco IMP231-1ERS sells for ~$500 USD online, notably higher than Hikvision's DS-2CD2725FHWD (~$300 online).

...the Sarix Pro3 is potentially a fit for those seeking competitive non-Chinese / NDAA compliant cameras.

is an inferior performing camera costing 70% more really the best that can be done for viable alternatives to ndaa affected cameras?
