“Having identified VSS as one of the key strategic pillars of focus to drive growth for Konica Minolta, we are extremely excited to expand our partnership with MOBOTIX in the U.S.,” said Vijay Raghavan, Senior Vice President, Digital Transformation and Emerging Businesses, Konica Minolta. “By taking advantage of MOBOTIX’s strong, secure system we are aligning ourselves with a best-in-class partner that will allow us to take video security to the next level and safeguard our clients across all verticals.”
"To understand the importance of this partnership, you have to move away from the concept of traditional video surveillance. In recent years, the needs of end-users have changed significantly. The new demand for video surveillance goes far beyond the concept of security. A smart solution by today’s standards should meet the highest cybersecurity and privacy standards, such as the US NDAA requirements, and provide end-users with a tangible return on investment," said Thomas Lausten, CEO, MOBOTIX. “We focus on how video can meet customers’ requirements for video analysis. It's no longer just about managing security, but managing and analyzing data, information and everything related to it as quickly as possible. In this way, we are moving successfully into the future with our strong partners, such as Konica Minolta.”
