ioimage, Denton, Texas, signed an agreement with e-Convergence Solutions, Centreville, Va., a distributor of presence, security and convergence technologies, to distribute ioimage products to data networking VARs in North America.


e-Convergence Solutions will market off-the-shelf intelligent video solutions from ioimage as a result of this partnership. e-Convergence Solutions specializes in the data networking market, providing IT and security-related convergence products to data networking VARs and integrators throughout North America. A high concentration of e-Convergence reseller partners serve the federal government, intelligence community and commercial market.


“ioimage represents the first physical security device offered by e-Convergence Solutions to data networking VARs and the many high-level government customers they serve in the Washington, DC area and beyond,” said Joseph Heinzen, president of e-Convergence Solutions. “We’ve begun to incorporate physical security solutions in our product offering, because there’s a logical association between keeping someone from coming in the door and then letting them on the network. We feel that physical security and data networking security are a powerful combination for convergence applications and that video surveillance is the next big data network application.”


“This partnership with e-Convergence Solutions offers a comprehensive reach into the physical security, IT, data and government security markets,” explained John Whiteman, vice president and general manager, ioimage North America. “Now we can provide a simple-to-install solution to the data networking industry, an important sector within our sales and marketing efforts.”
