MOBOTIX Corp. and Ingram Micro Inc. have announced a North American distribution agreement that will allow Ingram Micro to provide MOBOTIX products to its systems integrator customers in the United States and Canada.

The complete 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.

“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 within their businesses by providing them access to MOBOTIX products and working together to drive greater opportunity for growth.”

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, the company said. Distributing its IP surveillance technologies through Ingram Micro will allow MOBOTIX to serve a broader range of value-added resellers and systems integrators in North America, the company said.

“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.”

MOBOTIX takes a decentralized approach to video surveillance, incorporating a high-speed computer and internal MicroSD card into its intelligent cameras to enable all recording and storage to be done within the camera to reduce the need for a separate PC or DVR. All data is also processed within the camera to conserve network bandwidth.
