Many of us read about a year ago that one of the very few U.S. manufacturers of IP-Cameras –Arecont Vision– had declared bankruptcy. It was assumed at that moment that a private equity firm, Turnspire Capital Partners, was going to purchase the company (or at least all of its assets). But what ultimately happened was a surprise to many and may have been the best thing for Arecont Vision to get back on track.
