Intransa, a provider in physical security data management and video storage, and Convergint Technologies, a North American systems integrator of electronic security, fire alarm, life safety and building automation systems, announced a new sales alliance.
"With hundreds of professionals operating out of nearly two dozen offices across the United States and Canada, Convergint will dramatically increase our market reach in the design, installation and maintenance of physical security systems," said George Vaiser, Intransa VP, Video System Applications. "ith Convergint's specialization in providing best-of-breed building system technologies that meet customer needs, Intransa's IP storage is a great addition to its product portfolio.”
Intransa offers Smart CCTV DVR upgrades to extend the life and usefulness of existing infrastructures, cameras and DVRs. Intransa systems plug in, providing savings and benefits for a single DVR for edge recording such as a bank or retail location. The systems scale modularly and provide support for a wide range of security needs, from a few days of video and a handful of cameras to years of retention for hundreds of DVRs and NVRs and thousands of cameras.
Delivering the cost savings, improved reliability and increased capabilities of IP solutions, Smart CCTV DVR upgrades eliminate the risk and disruption of ripping and replacing existing security system investments. For new security system deployments, Intransa's all-IP surveillance solutions integrate with more than 100 vendors that offer video management, physical security information management and infrastructure systems in addition to cameras, video analytics, physical security utilities, authentication, access control, biometrics, data bases, imaging and IT products. Each product has been tested and certified through Intransa's StorAlliance Technology Labs.
"The reliability and cost savings that Intransa security-grade storage systems offer will be of immense value to our customers," said Tony Varco, Convergint Technology VP, Electronic Security division. "We are committed to providing the best electronic security, fire alarm, life safety and building automation systems to our clients. The proven integration, increased reliability and expanded retention that Intransa delivers fits very well in our portfolio."
In the past year, a diverse customer base has deployed Intransa solutions to increase reliability, retention and resolution while reducing cost, complexity and administration. These customers include hotels and casinos, correctional facilities, police departments, hospitals and medical centers, managed service providers, telecommunications companies, retailers, pharmaceutical makers, financial institutions, Native American organizations, educational institutions, digital entertainment providers, utilities and government users.
Those same solutions were integrated with DVRs, NVRs, video management and physical security information systems from AMAG Technology, American Dynamics, Cisco Systems, Exacq Technologies, Honeywell, IndigoVision, Integral Wireless Solutions, Milestone Systems, OnSSI, Pelco, videoNEXT, VideoProtein and VidSys, as well as a number of camera, access control and life safety products.
"Convergint customers will be an important focus for us going forward," said Vaiser. "The capabilities and experience that Convergint delivers are unmatched in the industry."
Intransa is the innovator of shared, scalable and simple external IP storage for video and IT storage, and the first vendor to offer comprehensive physical security data management solutions that improve the abilities of security practitioners.
