The bundle features Sanyo’s Full HD network megapixel camera and management software along with EMC storage capabilities and Lenovo servers.
Ingram Micro marketing director, Grant Cleary, said CCTV was a new market the distribution giant was dabbling in.
The bundled offering would create a range of business opportunities for resellers. It complements Ingram’s sales, warehousing and retail-focused products distributed via its Vantex arm.
“The whole IP CCTV security market is very broad. A lot of schools are now ramping up their security surveillance and retail stores, private and government security organisations,” he said. “The applications can also be expanded into private business and private home environments.
“It is a high growth market and we’ve moved to much more sophisticated technology than what we previously had in the past. Bringing in EMC’s storage and Lenovo servers provide a complete solution.”
Cleary said it would look to extend its CCTV offerings and aims to announce new technologies in due course.
“We have some exciting plans in store. It’s a discovery process for us and the opportunities are vast,” he said.
EMC general manager of channel and partners, David Henderson, said the alliance was formed in response to a shift towards IP technology in the security surveillance market.
“This is a relatively untapped market today with huge growth potential, so partners that move early will have the advantage,” he said.
