"Decentralised" MOBOTIX hi-res cameras a success, demonstrates partners at National Partner Conference

SourceSecurity.com recently attended the much-anticipated MOBOTIX UK and Ireland National Partner Conference (NPC) at the Radisson Edwardian Hotel, Heathrow. The event consisted of technical and product releases, partner presentations, live demonstrations and the prestigious MOBOTIX Gala Awards Dinner.

As the first in a series of National Partner Conferences around the world, day two of the conference kicked off to a rapturous start with MOBOTIX's Chief Sales Director (CSO) Dr. Magnus Ekerot delivering the keynote presentation. Dr. Ekerot, a new appointee to the MOBOTIX management board, reiterated the benefits of MOBOTIX surveillance solutions, describing MOBOTIX as a "solution specialist".

Key MOBOTIX products for 2011

Ekerot highlighted some of the key products that MOBOTIX will be focusing on in 2011. These include the high resolution M24M all-around IP camera, the CamIO interface base unit, the T24 IP Video Door Station and the innovative MxControlCenter video management software.

High growth, opportunities and challenges in the UK security industry

Business Development Director for UK and Ireland Mike Lewis and Business Development Manager Dominic Chapman spoke of the new prestigious demonstration facility opened at the Gherkin in London and presented their successes and challenges within the UK security industry.

In addition to the networking and the technical announcements, partners were also invited to share their success stories, showcasing the versatility and efficient costs of the "decentralised" concept of MOBOTIX cameras. It was insightful to see how this concept could not only save money, but also improve the quality of images captured as well. This was demonstrated by the installation of MOBOTIX high resolution camera by MOBOTIX advanced partner SeSys Ltd., a specialist in network vision solutions at Southern Water, a major UK water utility.
