Axis Communications, headquartered in Chelmsford, Mass., hosted a grand opening/ribbon-cutting party at their brand new Irvine, Calif. location on Tuesday, September 29. This location is part of an ongoing effort to offer “Axis Experience Centers” (AEC) in strategic locations throughout North America. These showplace facilities feature technology centers for a variety of verticals, allowing potential partners and customers to see the solution in action. Fredrik Nilsson, general manager, North America, Bill Wentlandt, business area manager for the U.S., West, and Martin Gren, Axis co-founder and director of the board, led media, partners and customers on a tour around the facility. SDM was there for the media tour and after party. Here are some photo highlights from the evening.
