The weather may have been disappointing outside the NEC, but the sun seemed to shine all week on the Samsung stand on all of the four days of IFSEC 2012. A record number of visitors took the time to visit stand D130 which was one of the largest at the exhibition.
“We took the opportunity at IFSEC 2012 to promote our Smart Security philosophy and this was reflected in the fact that a major part of the stand was dedicated to demonstrating to installers and systems integrators how they can recommend Samsung IP equipment and with our help, be confident it will meet, if not exceed, their clients’ expectations,” said Tim Biddulph, IP Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd.
The Samsung stand was packed with interactive product demonstration areas where visitors were able to try out the latest IP video surveillance and access control products and there were specific areas of the stand where Samsung’s security solutions for the commercial, education and transport sectors were on show.
Samsung are however in the strong position of being able to allow customers to choose the best solution for their specific application or environment. It has a comprehensive and competitively priced range of analogue cameras, DVRs and monitors and at IFSEC it was also able to show an impressive line-up of high definition megapixel cameras. ‘Hybrid’ options included encoders, which provide a cost effective and easy to implement method of adding analogue cameras to an IP/network based video surveillance system, and HD-SDI cameras, which allow the transmission of uncompressed and non-packetized Full HD (1080P) video over analogue cabling.
“Visitors to our stand were among the first to learn about the Samsung IP Institute (SIPI) which we will be launching in the UK in June and elsewhere in Europe later on in 2012,” said Tim Biddulph, IP Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. “SIPI will provide training, targeted at installers and system integrators and is intended to take the mystery out of installing an IP and network solution.”
