Pelco's Wrong! Cries HDcctv Alliance

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jul 04, 2012

Just days after being sued for stealing Object Video's invention of fire metadata, Pelco is again being attacked - this time for allegedly blowing it on moving to HDcctv. The head of the HDcctv Alliance, a group promoting non-IP megapixel cameras, leveled these public charges in a LinkedIn discussion.

Here's the claim:

"* ********** **** ********* ******* ***** ** *** '** ** pitch ******. ** *** **** * *******. ** ****** *** fundamentals *** *****. ** *** ***, *** ***** **** ****, 'OK, *** *** **** ** *****. *** ** *****'* ******, because ***** ****** **** ** ** ** ****** ****** *** HDcctv ******* *** ** **** **********.'
