Ingram Micro adds Exacq video management systems to physical security portfolio
Using exacqVision, solution providers and MSPs can enhance their existing managed IT services capabilities with real-time IP Surveillance. The system allows partners to view, manage and configure real-time and recorded video from any location on the network and is scalable across multiple locations. It lets resellers address market demand with flexible, tailored solutions that support specific vertical applications in government, education, corporate, finance, retail and healthcare.
“Exacq offers a strong value proposition that will enable our resellers’ security practices to grow and thrive with flexible, affordable and scalable solutions that deliver cross platform compatibility with a wide range of manufacturer devices including IP surveillance cameras, access control systems and video analytics,” said Tom Burns, general manager, Ingram Micro Physical Security, in a statement.
The exacqVision VMS software is available on a factory- installed hybrid server or an IP camera server. Both of these servers utilize today’s advanced IP network cameras, which reside on and send video using common computer networks. The hybrid system also incorporates video from analog cameras without the need for video encoders.
The exacqVision client is freely available for Windows, Linux and Macintosh operating systems while the exacqVision thin client runs on any standard Web browser. The company also provides the free exacq Mobile “app” available for iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
Exacq has used a broad network of manufacturers’ reps to build its channel throughout North America, but they see signing on with Ingram Micro as opening up their channel business significantly.
“As a true broadline distributor, Ingram Micro will make the exacqVision solution available to a much larger spectrum of the market,” said Dave Underwood, president of Exacq Technologies. “Our relationship with Ingram Micro will give us a competitive edge in terms of our ability to serve new markets and reach channel partners and their end-users.”
