It’s a good move…SnapAV, maker of video surveillance hardware under their Luma brand, will buy Visualint, maker of surveillance cameras and DVR/NVRs with video analytics.
Snap AV’s portfolio covers residential and some pro AV technology. It includes not only video surveillance (Luma), but also networking (Araknis), signal distribution (Binary), video conferencing (Nearus), power (WattBox), projection screens (Dragonfly), racks and TV mounts (Strong), microphones (Sense), structured wiring (Wirepath) and loudspeakers (Episode).
They also have a cloud-based remote-access platform, OvrC. And last year they bought outdoor TV maker Sunbrite TV.
This deal will have little impact on the European market. But earlier this year SnapAV engaged consultancy firm MIST Consultants to build the distributor base across Europe “with full support from the senior management of both SnapAV and Sunbrite.”
Next year, as SnapAV merges Visualint product lines and figures out the strategy on the synergy (like they did with Sunbrite TV), the company may find Europe an interesting market for certain product ranges like surveillance.
