Harco Group, the leader in video surveillance innovation, has announced the addition of VideoIQ (USA) to its IP CCTV Portfolio, further expanding its offering and accelerating its growing regional presence. Harco Group will be responsible for sales, technical support and distribution of VideoIQ’s line of intelligent video surveillance systems within the Middle East and North Africa, including iCVR-HD cameras, iCVR dome cameras and iCVR encoders.
VideoIQ’s all in one camera systems and smart encoders deliver up to full 1080p high-definition video, zero bandwidth recording, and 100 percent self-calibrating Adaptive Analytics. Unlike conventional IP video surveillance systems which face significant bandwidth and storage challenges, VideoIQ’s iCVR cameras and encoders store video in up to 750GB of onboard storage for months worth of recording, reducing network traffic and bandwidth consumption by over 90 percent. Additionally, VideoIQ’s Adaptive Analytics are 100 percent self calibrating, eliminating the need to manually tune or adjust the analytics over the life of the device – dramatically reducing installation and maintenance costs.
“Harco represents the best in their region,” said Holly Tsourides, vice president of worldwide sales for VideoIQ. “By partnering with such a well established distributor, we’re able to further accelerate our presence in the Middle East market, allowing us better meet the needs of our rapidly expanding international customer base.”
“With a demanding CCTV market like the Middle-East, it is important for us to deliver the latest innovations” added Roger Ghostine, Regional Business Development Director, MENA for Harco. “With VideoIQ On-board Analytics and On-Board Storage cameras and encoders, VideoIQ is allowing us to give our customers a unique solution suitable for many applications.”
