Company history[edit]

IQinVision began as a technology merger between an Engineering Services firm, Gordian Technologies, and one of Gordian's customer's, a small startup company called "VISIQN" (literally 'IQ' within the word "Vision" with the Q replacing the O) that designed intelligent network cameras for the surveillance industry. The company was founded in 1998 to design, manufacture and market a line of megapixel/HD cameras. The company changed its name to "IQinVision" early on to avoid confusion.[citation needed]

The company has offices in San Juan Capistrano[4] and Amsterdam.[5]

In January 2011, the company held its first partner conference - the IQsummit. At the conference, the company gave updates on IQinVision and discussed the future of megapixel surveillance and networked security video.[6]

In June 2013, Charles Chestnutt was officially appointed as the company's President and CEO. Charles had been serving since January 2012, as the company's interim chief executive officer.[7]

In March 2014, IQinVision merged with Vicon Industries, another company that also specializes in digital surveillance.[8]
