London, 26 August 2010 – JVC Professional is pleased to announce their partnership with Controlware, a distributor of IP CCTV, access control and networking equipment to integrators, CCTV installers and IT reseller partners. With more than 30 years’ technical experience – over 10 years’ specifically with IP CCTV systems – Controlware continues to develop security solutions and services, ensuring customers get the best possible choice from manufacturers like JVC.
JVC produces a full range of CCTV cameras and network recorders, with features such as high definition resolution, True Day/Night and high-level direct drive zoom with image stabilization. Power over Ethernet operation and wireless connectivity ensure simple installation and configuration, and the new partnership will help bring this additional value to security users.
“We are committed to providing the very best solutions, so the well-deserved reputation for quality JVC has can only enhance the value that we provide our customers,” Mark Harraway, Controlware’s Country Manager states. “JVC cameras are ideal for a broad range of applications and are also easy to use, which is important when users upgrade from analogue to IP CCTV.”
Controlware will distribute JVC products to key partners and will also integrate JVC cameras into their Cware Video Management Software (VMS) platform. Cware VMS is an open management platform that provides exceptional control of the video surveillance environment. Monitoring alarms, along with controlling live and recorded video surveillance, is effortless via the software’s user-friendly interface that can be customised to user requirements.
“We very much welcome the closer working relationship this partnership will bring, both on a technology level through integration with Cware, and in distributing their products, which we’re able to add value to through design and support services,” Harraway continues. Jon Prout, Distribution Sales Manager at JVC Professional, agrees, “We’re very pleased to be working with Controlware as we look to broaden our offering in the IP market. JVC is synonymous with quality and performance and, in Controlware, we have a partner with the same outlook. The combined efforts and long-term strategies of both companies will ensure we provide customers with our unrivalled knowledge and experience during this period of transition.”
