Will Intransa NVRs be a 'Game Changer'?

By: John Honovich, Published on Jun 15, 2009

Is the Intransa introduction of Genetec/Milestone/OnSSI NVRs the real disruptive force? A number of important security industry people tell me they believe it is. This interest reflects the limitations and challenges in mainstream security users in handling software only. As I analyzed in this week's report on the introduction, these products are unlikely to be competitive in the analog/under 32 camera market - a huge segment. However, I have no doubt that this is part of a broader trend where most or all of the software only offerings will provide options for NVR/DVR appliance [primarily because the manufacturers have pre-briefed me on upcoming releases].

[Update 2012: Intransa's notable premium over COTS offerings plus an increase in appliances from VMS providers has hurt Intransa greatly. Intransa is now in trouble and risk of going out of business.]
