Vivotek Favorability Report 2019

By IPVM Team, Published on Jan 29, 2019

Taiwanese video surveillance manufacturers, even relatively large ones like Vivotek, have lost ground in the PRC-China-driven race to the bottom. With market dynamics shifting, how would this impact Vivotek?

Vivotek favorability results improved only modestly from 2017 and are barely net positive, as shown in the graphic below:

fav vivotek 2019

In this note, we share 100 comments from 200+ integrators and examine how they felt about Vivotek and why. Comments fell into 8 themes ordered from most prevalent to least prevalent, as shown below:

  • Not impressed / cheap / poor quality
  • Good product / value
  • Dated / dying (despite good fisheye) / marketing is bad
  • Product just ok
  • Not as good as others
  • Overpriced
  • Poor choice for commercial
  • Outlook
