Optiview Announces New Manufacturing Partners at ASIS 2011
Optiview Inc. announced an expansion of its IP product line and new manufacturer partnerships at the ASIS 2011 show in Orlando. Optiview now offers IP cameras from Sony, Vivotek and Samsung (as well as its own Optiview brand of IP cameras). Also newly offered is network-based video management software from Digifort and Exact. Digifort supports more than 1,600 third-party cameras and servers. Various levels of the VMS are available, from basic to enterprise, plus add-on modules so there is a version to match every application and budget.
Prior to these distributor partnerships, Optiview sold its own private brand of cameras and servers almost exclusively. CEO David Page said that IP surveillance applications require a different approach to best meet the needs of the customer.
“In the IP arena partnerships and compatibility are critically important. Our customers expect products that work together and work well. We have partnered with the best quality providers that will stay current with the technology and deliver consistent quality, dependability and scalability,” Page said.
Optiview has been testing IP hardware and software for several years to determine the best mix of products and manufacturers to carry.
“Anyone can sell an IP camera but what Optiview does differently is provide IP solutions. Our IP product line is now complete with the cameras, software, infrastructure and support you need for real world IP surveillance applications,” Page said.
