RIP Sanyo CCTV

Author: John Honovich, Published on Dec 06, 2011

Sanyo's video surveillance / CCTV business is being shut down, according to multiple IPVM sources. Sanyo offered a moderately broad and fairly inexpensive IP camera line. Since Panasonic acquired Sanyo in 2009, industry people have wondered what would happen to Sanyo's surveillance line. While no official confirmation is available, other sources have shared a number of details :

This is consistent with recent news reports that Panasonic is taking over all operations and discontinuing the Sanyo brand across all business lines.
