Something old, something new

CCTV Handbook 2016 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Conferences & Events

Value-added distributor MiRO focused on three of its products on its sponsor’s stand at iLegal 2016. The products on display were from VIVOTEK, Uniview and LigoWave.

Marco de Ru, CTO at MiRO was on hand to discuss the products from MiRO, as well as the role MiRO plays in the security industry. De Ru explains that MiRO is an IP convergence company and as the security industry moved to the IP platform it became part of the IP convergence trend and MiRO now finds a significant part of its business is security based.

Since MiRO is a complete solutions provider, it is able to provide full solutions to the security market, from the network to the cameras and the management software required to run everything efficiently.

De Ru adds that companies looking for surveillance solutions often have a good concept of what they want in terms of cameras and their functions, but tend to forget that surveillance needs a good infrastructure if the solution is to deliver as required. From this perspective, MiRO is in a good position to assist as it can advise on cabled network solutions as well as wireless solutions.

There are people who have doubts about the efficacy of wireless networks for the surveillance world, but De Ru says it all depends on how you design the network and the products you use. Wireless networks today are as reliable and secure as their wired counterparts, and companies need to examine their environment to determine which solution is the best fit for them. In many cases, MiRO has found that a combination of wired and wireless technology provides the best results.

The LigoWave product set is a wireless networking solution that has been installed in over 150 countries for a variety of communications requirements. The company believes wireless is the future and MiRO has taken this brand into numerous customers with success.

A new entrant to the MiRO product range is the Uniview brand. Uniview has a history of innovation and offers a range of cameras that meet every need. The cameras are found in a variety of security projects globally, including public security, traffic monitoring, petrochemical surveillance, high-end buildings and more.

The third brand on the MiRO stand was VIVOTEK, a camera brand that needs no introduction. De Ru says VIVOTEK has quickly grown to establish itself as one of the world leaders in network video surveillance with a wide range of IP cameras, NVRs and encoders.

Visitors to iLegal 2016 were able to view the products and chat to MiRO staff about their features and benefits, as well as what MiRO as an IP convergence company can offer the security industry.
