Timesight Product Evaluation by PSA

By: John Honovich, Published on Jun 01, 2009

The PSA has released an evaluation of TimeSight Systems VMS product. It's an interesting read and good insight into how a large organization like the PSA conducts its evaluation.

The reviewer concludes on Timesight: "This is an extended storage solution versus a video management solution. In it’s present version it’s narrowly focused but focused well."

This is the risk of Timesight we have discussed: Is it good enough as an overall VMS or is it simply a feature (storage optimization) that better belongs to other VMSes?

[Update 2012: Timesight has gone out of business.]
