Monthly Roundup: November 2017

With the month of November all about giving thanks and being thankful, The Edge Group is always grateful for all of its members and suppliers! All through the month, we’re proud to see their accomplishments, awards and new products released as well as some of the showcases that were put on display at ISC East this year! See the full breakdown below!

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work!

To follow their changes to the website, Middle Atlantic set out on an agenda to keep customer satisfaction a top priority! To do this, they decided to merge their electrical engineering and power product management teams into one cohesive unit. The new department, according to Product Management Director Scott Lowder, is said to create a “seamless link” between customers and Middle Atlantic engineers, which should subsequently solve most customer concerns and forward better product design.

In an effort to fight against cybersecurity threats and myths, Hikvison will be holding a teamwork session of their own between them and interested distributors and end users, held throughout major cities Canada. Hence, their 4-day roadshow, titled Cybersecurity Myths and Facts: Presented by Hikvision, is scheduled to take place between December 4 through December 8.

ISC East & Awards

Hikvision, TRENDnet, InVid Tech, and Pelco showcased several products and solutions at the International Security Conference & Exposition 2017, held at the Javits Center in New York City. At booth 225, Hikvision hosted a few interesting educational sessions, one concerning artificial intelligence and the other focusing on the TurboHD 4.0. At booth 245, TRENDnet’s TEW-D100 Remote Network Management Box powered by Domotz got some shine. The product works as a massive IP monitoring device with remote power management. InVid Tech gave audiences an in-depth look at the ILAW-BWC body worn camera at booth 255, which featured a 2.2″ touchscreen and the option to directly transmit video to NVR systems and SD cards. Lastly, Pelco and Schneider Electric’s product unveiling at booth 505 saw the introduction of the all-in-one VideoXpert video management system.

We’ve also seen our suppliers receive a few awards this month! HID Global’s cloud-based FARGO Connect system received the 2017 Security Solutions Award from Security Sales and Integrator Magazine for its successful integration with Kent State University. Additionally, Hikvision’s DeepinView network PTZ camera won the Innovative Achievement 2017 Award from Detektor International.
