Inside this report, IPVM profiles Monterrey-based distributor TVC en Línea, now one of only two authorized Dahua distributors in Mexico following Inalarm's departure from the security business.

  • Second-largest Mexico-based video surveillance distributor
  • Bosch most "expensive" cameras in Mexico
  • "We are the ones who brought Dahua to Mexico"
  • Analog cameras are holding back the IP camera market
  • Why analog remains popular
  • Challenge: "Manufacturers are increasing product costs"
  • Challenge: "Import costs have tripled in the last 12 months"
