IPVM's IP Camera Analytics Shootout featuring Avigilon, Axis, Bosch, Dahua, Hanwha, Hikvision created some ill will with a Uniview distributor who objected:
Could you pls explain why do you keep insisting to limit the comparisons w/ only Dahua and Hikvision, but not w/ Uniview...
I'm sure that many members like us are willing to start getting more benefits from being an IPVM member by having the opportunity of getting some test results of the products from the manufacturers that we represent instead of just the competitor ones, as in our case we are not a distributor of any of those brands you are always choosing for comparisons, although representing some of the best in the market, such as Mobotix, Vivotek and Uniview.
So we bought and tested Uniview's analytics, examining:
- Causes of false alerts - indoors and outdoors
- Detection distance achieved / pixel density necessary
- 3rd party VMS integration of Uniview's analytics
- Ranking vs Avigilon, Axis, Bosch, Dahua, Hanwha and Hikvision
