Panoramic Camera Manufacturer Scallop Spin Out / Reboots

By John Honovich, Published Feb 18, 2014, 12:00am EST (Info+)

"Anyone else besides Arecont?" People want multi-imager panoramic cameras, but there are surprisingly few choices beyond Arecont.

5 years ago, Scallop Imaging [link no longer available] launched a promising multi-imager panoramic camera in a super small form factor.

Even today, there is nothing quite like it, but the company never seemed to gain significant traction.

Now, Scallop has been spun out and given a new chance with infused capital. In this note, we share our findings from speaking to their new CEO and our projections about what potential they have.

On top of this when we approached them about demo gear for testing they were very reluctant. ASking us to pay for the cameras upfront.

VMS MFR.

Speaking with undisclosed offline, this happened last year and most certainly is related to the resource constraints and issues with the parent company. Presumably and hopefully, Scallop will respond more aggressively now.
