Author: Brian Karas, Published on Aug 30, 2016

An ex-Dahua VP formed Videopark in 2009 and has since recruited many engineers from both Dahua and Hikvision.

US sales manager Kevin Zhou explained to IPVM Videopark's plans to enter the US market and provide an alternative to Hikvision and Dahua products. Inside, we examine the approach and the tradeoffs of it.
