|Mirasys is ready to address growing demand for IP-ready Video Management Software in India|
, a leading provider of Open Platform and Video Management and Video Surveillance Solutions, has announced continued focus on global expansion with developments in India. This move extends Mirasys' reach into South Asia from one of its innovation centres to be based there.
Mirasys' expansion has been spurred by an exponential rise in market demand for Video Management Software that brings state-of-the-art intelligence and supports IP-based systems in an environment where the global market is expected to grow by 200% between 2010 and 2012. The India market leads the way with expected growth of up to 35% year over the year. Following the company's move into Germany in October, and Italy, Thailand in March 2010, Mirasys' India presence will target both IP and analogue opportunities offering hybrid systems, which allow the use of analogue and IP-based technology to integrate in one system simultaneously.
