Midwich Security, the specialist security division of the distributor Midwich Group, has a new partnership with Grundig to distribute the security manufacturer’s CCTV and IP products. Grundig’s product range takes in cameras, domes, recorders, monitors and software.
Mark Thomas, director of Midwich Security, says: “Grundig’s worldwide brand recognition and high-quality reputation is well-deserved. The company has strong brand presence in both the professional and consumer electronics markets, and this is increasing each year.
“The security division of Grundig is an expert in its field and the addition of its analogue, IP and HD-SDI technology to the Midwich Security portfolio represents a more complete choice of solutions for our customers. Most importantly, we can now offer the most extensive range of HD-SDI in the market place. This allows our customer s to build the bridge more effectively between analogue and the benefits of HD image quality without having to replace existing cable installation. What’s more, Grundig’s ongoing and significant investment in new product development means that Midwich Security will have continual access to the latest innovations in security technology.”
“The industry’s gradual shift towards IP technology may represent a challenge to many installers. However, Midwich Security is dedicated to helping its customers to further expand their business offering and this partnership with Grundig is backed with full technical support from both companies. Besides these high levels of support, we also offer regular training courses to help businesses achieve their goals in developing their knowledge of IP surveillance and networking.”
Andreas Kronwald, product manager at Grundig, adds: “Our products can be used in a wide range of applications, from multi-site, multi-camera installations to simple, four camera systems. They can be entirely new systems, but are often system upgrades, where the investment costs can be off-set by the savings incurred from re-using existing cabling or equipment. Grundig’s approach is to give installers the flexibility to offer the right equipment and technology for each application, regardless of whether it is a new system or an upgrade, all from a single manufacturer.
“HD-SDI is proving a very successful middle-ground. HD-SDI is a high-quality digital video solution where installers benefit, not only from re-using coaxial cabling infrastructures, but also from the same familiar installation method as analogue. The IT support element, which many installers are uncomfortable providing, is also avoided.”
