Ingram Micro to distribute Mobotix products in North America

IT security distributor to deliver company's IP technologies to new markets


New York – January 15, 2013 – MOBOTIX Corp., an industry-leading provider of high-resolution, network-based surveillance systems, today announced a North American distribution agreement with Ingram Micro Inc., the world’s largest technology distributor. Under the agreement, the complete line of MOBOTIX high-resolution IP technologies is available through Ingram Micro throughout the United States and Canada.

Ingram Micro delivers a broad array of solutions and services to more than 170,000 resellers through the distribution and marketing of IT and security solutions worldwide. By distributing its IP surveillance technologies through Ingram Micro, MOBOTIX can serve a broader range of value-added resellers (VARs) and systems integrators throughout North America.

Unlike traditional security systems, MOBOTIX develops a decentralized approach to video surveillance. The intelligent MOBOTIX cameras incorporate a high-speed computer and internal flash memory card (MicroSD card) to enable all recording and storage to occur within the camera, reducing the need for a separate PC or DVR. Furthermore, all data is processed within the camera to lower network bandwidth, which maximizes the use of robust features, including virtual PTZ, video analytics and 360-degree hemispheric technology with panoramic view.

“Ingram Micro’s broad market reach and dedicated focus on physical security and emerging technologies makes us well positioned to assist MOBOTIX in raising awareness for its decentralized and hemispheric approaches to video surveillance,” said Tom Burns, General Manager, Ingram Micro Physical Security Business Unit, North America. “This new relationship will enable our channel partners to build and enhance the physical security segments withintheir businesses by providing them access to MOBOTIX products and working together to drive greater opportunity for growth.”

The entire MOBOTIX product suite, including the Q24 Hemispheric Camera, the D14 DualDome Camera, the S14 Double Hemispheric Camera and the T24 IP Video Door Station, is now available through Ingram Micro. Over the past year, demand for the company’s decentralized and hemisphericsurveillance solutions increased as VARs sought out edge-based security solutions to control costs and deliver long-term ROI for end users.

“Our new agreement with Ingram Micro marks an important milestone for MOBOTIX as its investment in IP security demonstrates that the value it delivers to VARs is second to none,” said Steve Gorski, General Manager, Americas, MOBOTIX Corp. “Today’s IT resellers are eager to tap into the benefits of providing networked security technologies and MOBOTIX is well positioned to help these VARs expand into this segment with reliable, innovative and trusted technologies.”
