BARCO TO SHOW­CASE UNISEE VIDEO WALL TECH­NOL­OGY

Ramzi Itani, vice pres­i­dent, Barco Mid­dle East and Africa (MEA) lays out the com­pany’s strat­egy at the 2019 In­ter­sec and how the com­pany is pro­mot­ing vis­ual col­lab­o­ra­tion solutions in the mar­ket.

Channel Middle East - - Editor’s Notes -

We hope to lever­age on In­ter­sec’s stand­ing as one of the most sig­nif­i­cant plat­forms to con­nect with the lead­ing au­thor­i­ties in the se­cu­rity and surveil­lance in­dus­try, to in­vest in con­ver­sa­tions that would help ac­cel­er­ate our growth in this vi­tal sec­tor in the Mid­dle East.

Talk us through your par­tic­i­pa­tion at In­ter­sec 2019.

We have joined forces with our part­ner In­tertech Vi­sion ME again for the tenth con­sec­u­tive year at In­ter­sec, where we will show­case the lat­est in­no­va­tions from Barco’s KVD and UniSee video wall tech­nol­ogy.

Barco, along with In­tertech, will also in­tro­duce a new soft­ware, RAMSys 2.0, a sit­u­a­tional man­age­ment plat­form for se­cu­rity and surveil­lance that aims to col­lect and ag­gre­gate many alarms or in­ci­dents. It is highly com­pre­hen­sive soft­ware that vi­su­alises the in­ci­dents, analy­ses and ver­i­fies the sit­u­a­tion, pro­vides re­ports and find­ings, launches ap­pro­pri­ate pro­ce­dures and records all the in­ci­dents/alarms and ac­tions taken.

What tech­nolo­gies will you be show­cas­ing at this year’s show?

The revo­lu­tion­ary Barco UniSee and KVD video wall solutions will be show­cased as a spot­light prod­uct for the first time in the Mid­dle East at In­ter­sec. The unique LCD video wall tech­nol­ogy com­pletely rev­o­lu­tionises the LCD video wall ex­pe­ri­ence by re­design­ing and op­ti­mis­ing ev­ery minute com­po­nent of the tech­nol­ogy, re­sult­ing in a new way to look at large screen vi­su­al­i­sa­tion. It en­sures amaz­ing im­age qual­ity, while be­ing su­per easy to in­stall, main­tain and ser­vice. We are look­ing for­ward to show­cas­ing its unique fea­tures to vis­i­tors at In­ter­sec.

What is it im­por­tant for your com­pany to be at a show like In­ter­sec?

In­ter­sec’s mar­ket reach goes be­yond just the Mid­dle East and Africa re­gion. As the world’s most pre­mier se­cu­rity event, In­ter­sec also pro­vides us the ideal plat­form to launch our new Sit­u­a­tional Man­age­ment Plat­form.

We hope to lever­age on this mar­ket reach to build aware­ness of our prod­uct port­fo­lio and show­case our in­no­va­tive tech­nol­ogy solutions to a large net­work of tar­get stake­hold­ers.

What are your key ob­jec­tives and what are you hop­ing to achieve at In­ter­sec this year?

As a newly launched prod­uct of our part­ner In­tertech, will be show­cased for the first time at In­ter­sec. We are keen to cre­ate mar­ket aware­ness for RAMsys 2.0 in the re­gion and be­yond. We hope to lever­age on In­ter­sec’s stand­ing as one of the most sig­nif­i­cant plat­forms to con­nect with the lead­ing au­thor­i­ties in the se­cu­rity and surveil­lance in­dus­try, to in­vest in con­ver­sa­tions that would help ac­cel­er­ate our growth in this sec­tor.

Adop­tion of com­mer­cial se­cu­rity, cy­ber se­cu­rity, smart home, perime­ter and phys­i­cal se­cu­rity prod­ucts have been on the in­crease in the Mid­dle East. How is your com­pany con­tribut­ing to this surge?

To­day, more and more data needs to be mon­i­tored as threats and risks are evolv­ing faster than ever. The big­gest chal­lenge we are faced with to­day is that it be­comes im­pos­si­ble to man­age all the threats and risks. RAMsys 2.0 is an im­por­tant so­lu­tion to tackle the growth thread of se­cu­rity as it cre­ates rapid and ef­fec­tive re­sponse by ag­gre­gat­ing mul­ti­ple alarms from mul­ti­ple lo­ca­tions, vi­su­alises, cor­re­lates and ver­i­fies the type of alarm, and es­ca­lates, shares and acts ef­fec­tively and im­me­di­ately.

What does 2019 have in store for the re­gional IT se­cu­rity chan­nel in the Mid­dle East?

The con­ver­sa­tion on se­cu­rity has be­come more per­ti­nent than ever be­fore, glob­ally as well as in the Mid­dle East, with cy­ber se­cu­rity play­ing an in­creas­ingly im­por­tant role. Ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence (AI) is prov­ing to be a pow­er­ful tool and is largely driv­ing the in­no­va­tion in se­cu­rity and surveil­lance, pro­vid­ing deeper in­sights, ad­vanced data an­a­lyt­ics, fa­cial and voice recog­ni­tion and min­i­mal re­sponse time.
