Samsung Goes AHD, Sets Battle with Dahua and Hikvision

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jul 20, 2015

HD analog continues to grow.

One of the biggest problems so far is the lack of big brand support. Though Hikvision and Dahua are now mega surveillance manufacturers, they clearly do not have the name recognition globally.

To date, the biggest names have been Honeywell (HQA) and FLIR (MPX), both going for Dahua's CVI.

Now, Samsung is joining a rival alliance - AHD.

In this note, we examine Samsung's move and offering, with feedback from Samsung, how they match up against CVI and TVI, plus what the future looks like for the three rival offerings.
