Canon Europe, world leader in imaging solutions, has announced a new partnership with digivod, an innovative provider of video management software (VMS) at Security Essen. The collaboration will enable Canon customers to access digivod’s high performance solution across its full range of high-quality network security cameras, and benefit from its powerful video analysis.
Following increased demand from customers to access Canon’s network security cameras, the partnership will enable Canon and digivod to provide a simple, flexible and scalable security system that can be adapted to suit all business sizes across key verticals, including retail, warehousing and petrol station environments.
Canon’s full range of network cameras will be supported by digivod’s solution, which will enhance its strong range of in-built intelligent self-learning analytic functions, including different filters to classify identified objects. The digivod VMS supports cameras with a resolution of up to 8 megapixels and enables Canon customers to incorporate license plate recognition into their security systems. The optional feature identifies characters starting at a 16 pixel font size and detects alpha numeric characters in the four most common text types (Latin, Arabic, Cyrillic and Chinese). Once activated, security systems can be set up to trigger an alarm after certain license plates have been detected.
Dr. Karsten Fourmont, CEO says, “Our customers need tailored security offerings to suit their needs. To help meet this expectation, we are pleased to be partnering with Canon to access its high-quality lens technology and provide a simple, flexible and reliable solution.”
Julian Rutland, Planning and Strategy Director, Canon Europe, says, “We’re delighted to work closely with digivod to offer a scalable security system for any business size, ranging from SMBs to enterprises. Working closely with key partners to enhance our security offering is a key focus for us and we regard Security Essen as the ideal event to announce our latest agreement and further establish our presence in the security market.”
Canon uses its 70 years’ experience as a high quality lens manufacturer to develop network cameras which deliver exceptional image quality and capture best in class images in all light conditions. Canon’s range of network security cameras are simple to install and are supported by an extensive warranty programme.
