    3/20/2013

    Personally, it was when one of our most successful resellers first agreed to carry our software. After we presented the Keystroke POS program to Randy for several years straight, he finally decided it was a product he wanted to sell, and did he ever. It was an important lesson about what it takes for a dealer to take on a new core product line.

  7. Access Control Biometric Systems
    3/19/2013

    Scalability And Interoperability Are Key — “Today’s access control systems should be scalable and capable of evolving with the client, not locking them into one specific technology. Additionally, the system should be capable of supporting different access control panels and card technologies.” Francois Brouillet, product specialist, Genetec

  8. DVRs/NVRs Video Storage
    3/19/2013

    All Signs Point To A Growing Opportunity — “Demand for open, IP-based solutions and related storage systems are growing more rapidly than closed, proprietary ones. Additionally, HD cameras are replacing lower resolution ones, driving greater storage requirements. At the same time, end users and regulatory authorities are driving requirements for longer data retention times, resulting in greater storage requirements. This drives the need for converged storage appliances, which are beneficial over alternative systems, based on their simplicity, scalability, energy and rack space footprint, and value.” Rich Bravman, CEO, Pivot3

  9. IP Video Cameras
    3/19/2013

    HD Means Fewer Cameras — “The most important development in IP video is megapixel resolution. Megapixel allows systems integrators to design systems that cover more area with fewer cameras and higher resolution to zoom in for details (virtual PTZ [pan-tilt-zoom]). This reduces total cost of ownership and delivers better return on investment for the end-user customer.” Mark Espenschied, director of marketing communications, Arecont Vision

  10. Video Management Software & Analytics
    3/19/2013

    Analytics At The Edge Has Many Benefits — “Analytics at the edge, such as motion detection, cross-line detection, and license plate recognition, allow for preprocessing of video before it’s compressed and sent to the VMS server. This saves bandwidth and processing power needed at the central VMS server.” Robert Muehlbauer, application development partner, business development manager, Axis Communications
