Canon Middle East has diversified into the security camera business in the region with the launch of a full range of IP (internet protocol) cameras. Four new models were unveiled for the first time at Intersec 2013, the region’s largest and most comprehensive exhibition and conference for security, safety and fire protection in the Middle East.
“The future of IP security lies with intelligent cameras and HD quality images. We see a huge demand for security products in the region and by being so strong in the imaging business, foraying into the surveillance camera market was only a natural progression for the company. Canon’s technology will help raise the bar of the network camera sector, while offering customers the highest quality security solutions,” said Hendrik Verbrugghe, Marketing Director, Canon Middle East.
“Intersec is a key date in the region's security calendar. Canon's participation at the show provided a great opportunity to show the market what makes Canon’s security surveillance portfolio stand out from the competition. Namely: industry leading image quality, highest available technical specification and a number of features that add value to any customer installation. The latest range of security cameras represents a significant milestone for Canon and a compelling proposition for our partners and their customers,” added Verbrugghe.
Intersec 2013 also provided the company with the opportunity to meet with existing and prospective partners, distributors, system integrators and resellers to communicate its updated business strategy and vision for this new product segment.
The full HD IP cameras including VB-H610D, VB-H41, VB-H71 IP, VB-H610 VE were showcased with a live demonstration at Intersec giving visitors a first look and feel to the products. In addition to the four models, solutions from software partners from Genetec and Milestone were also showcased. The range supports the communication protocol ‘ONVIF’ and is compatible with a range of 3rd party ONVIF-compliant equipment.
