Avigilon speaks with VMSToday and discusses the H4 Edge Solution Camera Line

by Johnny R - on Apr 19th 2016 - No Comments

Continuing my tour of “exhibitors that would meet with me” as ISC West 2016, I managed to get the lowdown on Avigilon’s new H4 Edge Solution Camera Line from Willem Ryan. I’m calling the H4 line “combo cameras” as they contain the IP camera, Solid State Drive (SSD) and VMS solution in one device. Avigilon is offering these units in dome, bullet and box forms.

H4 Edge Solution Camera Line from Avigilon







My first thought was about what problem(s) this line of cameras was a solution for. No surprise, Willem was prepared for this. Deploying to remote areas and having to setup a centralized NVR, running the cables, servicing the hardware, etc adds to cost/trouble of an installation. That ‘centralized’ requirement can keep some small customers out of the game entirely for lack of money and manpower. (more…)

ISC West 2016 is a Winner!

by Johnny R - on Apr 11th 2016 - No Comments

Attendance was excellent with enough serious interest to keep the majority of exhibitors busy all day long. If you are easily overstimulated, it was a nightmare. If you are thrilled by a large number of options and lots of movement and color (aka- a cat), it was a dream. The whale pod was what you would expect (large, sleek and full of krill) and the show had loads of hungry new players in a variety of areas. VMSToday managed to get some quality time with a few of the exhibitors at this years show. In addition to finding out about their new offerings, we also got their opinion on the show itself. The results were unanimously positive with several of them commenting that it was the best show in years. Kudos, ISC West. (more…)
