History of Arecont Vision[edit]

Arecont Vision was founded in 2003 by Michael Kaplinsky[6] and Vladimir Berezin[7] in Southern California. The company has offices in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific and Latin America.[8] It maintains channel partners, including systems integrators, value-added resellers, dealers and distributors. In 2012, Arecont Vision reported their eighth consecutive year of double digit sales growth, with a 25.5% increase in revenues.[9]

On November 5, 2014 Arecont Vision announced they will provide video surveillance cameras for SpaceX, a private company that designs, manufactures, and launches advanced rockets and spacecraft for NASA and other organizations. The high performance megapixel cameras are being deployed on the SpaceX Dragon spacecraft, which is utilized by NASA to deliver supplies and science experiments to the International Space Station.[10]
