Axis Communications, the global leader in network video, continued its annual tradition of recognising the outstanding performance of its partners when it recently held its VIP Partner Event and 2013 awards.
Axis invited 40 of its top-performing gold partners from across the Northern European region to the VIP Partner Event held in Copenhagen, Denmark. The theme for the event was "experience smarter video surveillance" and aimed to reinforce how effective partnerships could drive market growth.
The 2013 award categories and winners were:
- Enterprise Project of the Year - Tyco/ADT
Heathrow Airport catered for over 70 million passengers last year, and with the redevelopment of Heathrow Terminal 2 set to be complete in 2014, it demanded a state-of-the-art video surveillance system be installed by Tyco/ADT; an integrator with a pedigree in delivering enterprise security projects.
- Innovative Solution of the Year - 2020 Vision
Reflecting a trend of video applications beyond security and surveillance, 2020 Vision’s solution demonstrates the positive role IP video can play in today’s world.

- UK & Ireland Partner of the year - Tyco/ADT
With a stellar performance in the last year, Tyco/ADT has embraced IP across its business, reinforced by a significant investment in Axis Academy training for their personnel. Following on from its tremendous success in securing high-profile projects across segments spanning retail, transportation, healthcare and stadiums / venues.

Against a backdrop of a wider industry debate about regulation and systems installed according to best practice, Quadrant has seen the value in achieving certified professional partner status, providing reassurance to their end user customers that their installation team have achieved the highest possible accreditation with the market leader in network video.
Atul Rajput, regional director, Northern Europe at Axis Communications said: “We have a proud history of constantly working with our partners to achieve industry excellence. Our VIP partner event allows us to reward our top-performing partners, giving them the recognition they deserve.”
“The convergence to IP video has meant far more opportunities for our partners and we are working closely with them to help them capitalise on these.”
