Vivotek fisheye camera collaborates with world-leading brands

Taipei, Taiwan

Following the recognition from the Taipei Computer Association as the winner of Outstanding IT Applications/Products Award in 2011, the Vivotek FE8171V once again has received the honour of Taiwan Excellence Symbol Award from Taiwan's Bureau of Foreign Trade this year.
The award-winning FE8171V is the first and foremost fisheye camera from Vivotek. Equipped with a 3.1 megapixel sensor and a fisheye lens for 180° panoramic view (wall mount) or 360° surround view (ceiling/floor/table mount), the FE8171V conveniently eliminates blind spots and provides a field of view 8x wider than a standard VGA camera. With cutting-edge image processing, hemispherical images captured from the FE8171V can be converted into conventional rectilinear projection for viewing and analysis. Users can also utilise the ultra-smooth ePTZ function to zoom in and focus on a region of interest in both panoramic and regional viewing modes..

Following Wavestore, four other industry leaders, Axxonsoft, Exacq, Milestone and Synology, have collaborated with Vivotek to design and implement a robust and complete surveillance solution. Axxonsoft is a leading software developer that combines IP-based physical security management and intelligent video surveillance. Exacq Technologies is a leading developer of open architecture, scalable video management system (VMS) solutions for security and surveillance applications. Milestone Systems is a leading provider of open platform IP video management software. Synology is a growing company dedicated to developing high-performance network attached storage (NAS) products.

"The FE8171V is one of the most celebrated models of our Supreme series. We are confident that security specialists and end-users can benefit tremendously from our recent collaboration with other industry players, particularly our Solution Integration Alliance (SIA) Program partners," said William Ku, Director of Brand Business Division at Vivotek.

Vivotek SIA Program assists partners in tailoring and integrating Vivotek‘s network cameras and video servers to fit their clients‘ needs by providing technical support, software development kits (SDK) and application components.

"It has been a great pleasure working with such prestigious software companies; together we make the world a safer place," William added.

Big changes ahead for access control market

Following our recent reports on the Kaba and Dorma merger, and now with the news that Allegion plans to acquire Simonsvoss from HgCapital.  Blake Kozak, Principal Analyst for Security and Building technologies at IHS, predicts that this latest merger may again reshape the access-control market in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). The merger of Allegion and Simonsvoss would immediately create the second largest company in the EMEA region, after the market leader, Assa Abloy. The merged Kaba and Dorma would then rank third in the region.  But it has to be pointed out that this most recent merger still requires approval, by the German Bundeskartellamt, which prohibited a planned merger of Assa Abloy and Simonsvoss back in 2008.
