Pelco's Sarix Competitive Price/Positioning Examined

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Sep 07, 2011

Pelco entered the megapixel market moderately late and with a relatively limited lineup. Now, with the release of their WDR / low light optimized SureVision series, Pelco has filled an important hole at the high end of their product portfolio. Additionally, this Spring, Pelco reduced its prices on a number of existing Sarix cameras.

Given this progress, in this note, we compare the price and feature sets of Pelco's IP cameras, including the new SureVision line, to Axis and Sony's offerings for box, interior and outdoor dome cameras.
