ScanSource Security Distribution Adds Surveillance Solutions through Image Vault

GREENVILLE, S.C -- ScanSource Security Distribution, a business unit of specialty technology distributor, ScanSource, Inc., has signed a distribution agreement with Image Vault, a leading provider of digital surveillance systems, to distribute the company's digital video recorders (DVR). These DVR surveillance solutions are significant because they seamlessly tie into a retailer's point-of-sale (POS) system, providing enhanced security and efficiency.

Image Vault's multi-function digital recorders offer an affordable, feature-rich, yet simple replacement for analog time-lapse video recorders. The plug and play DVRs provide remote access via dial-up, DSL, web or network connections. Images are available at all times, unlike videotape, and recorded images and playback software can be downloaded to a standard CD-Rom with the push of a button. The DVR records the images captured from the surveillance cameras and tracks the video along with information coming from a customer's POS system.

"Image Vault's DVRs are a great solution for security and point-of-sale resellers, as the systems work seamlessly together," said Tony Sorrentino, vice president of merchandising, ScanSource Security Distribution. "Image Vault's products enable retailers to index all of their transactions and sort the video by any type of information, such as date, time, salesperson, voids, etc., improving tracking ability, efficiency and productivity."

"We're excited to have this opportunity to showcase our solution to ScanSource Security's resellers, as well as ScanSource's point-of-sale resellers," said Lloyd Jones, senior vice president of sales, Image Vault. "Resellers will achieve incremental business by offering security to their end-user customers. Image Vault is in demand by retailers of all types and is a natural fit for POS resellers because of the seamless interface to POS systems."

Image Vault's recorders have been proven in the retail and hospitality environments, delivering simplicity, durability and the highest-quality surveillance.

The ScanSource Security product offering includes access control, surveillance, intrusion, and fire-related products. ScanSource Security will serve only the reseller community.
