Anixter/Tri-Ed Northern Video Tested

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Sep 18, 2015

ADI is an IP video manufacturer now (see IPVM's ADI W Box test results).

And now, their top rival, Anixter's Tri-Ed arm has also entered the IP video manufacturering business, under the Northern Video brand name.

But can Tri-Ed really compete with their video surveillance manufacturer partners?

We bought a Northern IP camera and POE NVR to see how they compare to models from Hikvision and ADI's W Box in image quality, integration, and more.

Why wouldn't ADI offer over-the-counter returns? That seems dumb.

They may, but it's not explicitly stated like it is in the Northern line.

ADI does offer OTC returns on Honeywell's Performance Series.

Looks Tyco is jumping in on the OEM badwagen too. But it looks like Dahua gear
