IDIS, the Korean-based surveillance product firm, and distributor Videnda, have signed a strategic partnership. It sees the specialist trade-only distributor of communications and surveillance products offering the full IDIS line up across the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Videnda will distribute the IDIS flagship offering, DirectIP, a range of cameras, monitors, network video recorders (NVRs) and video management software (VMS) that comes without license fees. The makers say that DirectIP eliminates the need for IP addressing and a deep knowledge of networks to offer a networked and HD surveillance solution that can be deployed in hours. Videnda will offer installers DirectCX, an analogue HD over coaxial system that includes a range of HD-TVI video recorders (TVRs), cameras, bundled IDIS Center VMS and peripherals.
The distributor will also supply integrators with the IDIS VMS, IDIS Solutions Suite (ISS), that works across any combination of IDIS recording platforms including DirectIP NVRs and DirectCX TVRs. ISS works with every IDIS device and allows customers to choose only the modules they need such as admin, monitoring, recording, streaming, backup, redundant recording, fail-over and video wall services.
Taking the company’s signature consultative approach, Videnda says that it combines its 13-year track record and surveillance knowledge with dedicated sales and technical support across a range of surveillance projects from training, system design, implementation, commissioning and maintenance.
Martin Cowley, pictured, Channel Manager at IDIS Europe, said: “Videnda have a wealth of surveillance knowledge together with an excellent reputation for using a consultative approach to offer dedicated and specialist technical support. We’re delighted that Videnda’s customer base can now benefit from the IDIS range of simple to use and cost effective surveillance solutions to suit various businesses of all sizes.”
And Greg Clausen, Head of IP Surveillance at Videnda, added: “When we first saw the IDIS line up we were immediately impressed by its high performance. DirectIP also simplifies the Videnda buying chain by offering everything our installers need to build a full-HD and networked surveillance solution. The simplicity of installation combined with industry-leading image quality and a low cost of ownership continues to impress both our installation partners and their end user customers. The DirectCX analogue offering and an enterprise-level VMS, means we can meet the needs of an even wider range of applications in terms of security, surveillance and technology requirements.”
