The booth has been dismantled and shipped home. Our team has made their way back to their respective offices. The giveaway winners are now enjoying their virtual reality headsets to the fullest. Even though ISC West 2017 has come to a close, we walk away from the show with a renewed sense of what is driving today’s security and surveillance industries. At the same time, we are energized to have heard the feedback that our technologies are making a significant difference in today’s surveillance infrastructures.
By far, this year’s conference was the best and most well-executed event that we’ve seen in the past 10 years. The organizers have done a tremendous job of attracting attendees from both the integrator and end-user communities. We engaged in conversations with as many (if not more) end users (both IT and security leaders) as we did with potential and current partners. What was very interesting is that both of these segments were onsite to find solutions to some very challenging video and security problems, most of which are surrounding the challenge of storing video footage.
The huge influx in the deployment of high-resolution and 360-degree surveillance cameras, advanced video analytics, Big Data applications and even artificial intelligence is driving an ever-growing increase in captured data. And as we all know; this data is being used to optimize business as well as increase safety.
As a solutions provider in the video storage segment, we focus on designing platforms that maximize access to this data, and ensure robust protection and failover. This commitment is evident in the recently announced upgrades to our hyperconverged infrastructure platforms that enable customers to realize greater levels of performance, resiliency and scale within their video surveillance environments. As a leader in video surveillance storage solutions, we continue to apply the latest IT innovations to allow users to store and protect mission-critical data.
Our technology plays a significant role in these events but the folks behind it and our customers lead the way. I want to take the opportunity to thank a few folks that made this year’s ISC extremely successful. Tyrone Chambliss, Director, Brand Protection and Security, Flex Inc., and Vince Ricco from Axis Communications helped us address the challenges within the modern global security operations center during a Connected Security Expo educational panel during the show. Jeff Morgan, Director of Emergency Management, University of Central Florida, and Joe Souza, Assistant Director of Security, University of Central Florida, Jumbi Edumbehram, Regional President, Americas, Oncam, and Paul Timm from RETA provided their insights on security issues and solutions in the education sector during a lunch-and-learn at ISC. A special thank you to Laura Stepanek, Editor, SDM Magazine, for moderating this discussion. Both these events wouldn’t have been as valuable or successful without the support of these knowledgeable professionals.
Additionally, thank you to all our customers, partners and future collaborators for coming by the booth to learn how Pivot3 is redefining the surveillance market. And a big thank you to the entire Pivot3 team, who worked diligently to make the show a success.
