Avigilon, a leader in high-definition (HD) and megapixel video surveillance systems, recently announced its expansion into the growing surveillance market in Southern Africa with the appointment of a security industry expert in the region, Ryno Van der Vyver, as the company's Regional Sales Manager for Southern Africa.

A 2010 Frost & Sullivan report entitled "The South African Markets for CCTV" found that the South African surveillance market was worth US$537.7 million in 2008 and estimated that the market would grow to $869.3 million by 2015-a compound annual grow rate (CGAR) of 7.1 percent. 

"An increasing number of South African companies, retailers, financial institutions, and public institutions are transitioning to high-definition surveillance technologies to better protect their employees, customers, and critical assets," said Alexander Fernandes, President and CEO of Avigilon. "Avigilon's high-definition surveillance solution, which combines high-definition network video management software with the industry's broadest range of megapixel cameras, delivers the image clarity, performance, and cost-effectiveness that the South African market demands."
