Safety Vision was recently named the 2014 Transportation Market Partner of the Year for North America by Axis Communications. Axis, the world leader in network video, presented the award during the ninth annual Axis Connect & Converge Conference (ACCC) held in Miami, FL from September 7-11. ACCC is an annual gathering of Axis’ top distributors, systems integrators, software development, and strategic infrastructure partners throughout North America.
Axis presents the Transportation Market Partner of the Year award annually to recognize the success and loyalty of a single transportation market partner. Safety Vision was selected for their continued commitment to drive the shift from analog CCTV to internet protocol (IP)-based network video surveillance.
“Safety Vision has embraced the shift from analog to IP video technology, continuing their role as a pioneer in the mobile surveillance industry,” said Anthony Incorvati, business development manager, Critical Infrastructure & Transportation for Axis Communications. “In particular, their partnership with Axis is helping to accelerate the adoption of IP cameras and network video recorders (NVRs) for onboard bus monitoring – an application which has long been dominated by analog technology.” Note: NVRs are to IP cameras what DVRs are to analog cameras.
“We are proud to be affiliated with Axis,” said Rex Colorado, Vice President of Sales for Safety Vision. “The most notable aspect of this partnership is the interoperability of Axis’ mobile IP cameras withSafety Vision’s NVRs. Safety Vision NVRs and Axis IP cameras are essentially ‘plug-and-play’ devices. By incorporating Axis’ industry leading cameras with Safety Vision’s ruggedized and reliable NVRs, an ideal solution has been created to target even the largest, most demanding mass transit customers.” Safety Vision began its partnership with Axis in 2012. As partners, the two companies have collaborated thus far to deliver significant projects in Las Vegas, City of Cincinnati, Toronto, and Portland.
