Canon Europe, world leader in imaging solutions and NETAVIS Software, pioneer in server-based IP video surveillance, announce working closely together to ensure compatibility and quality of service across the entire Canon network camera range. Canon and NETAVIS will collaborate in sales and technical development, enabling both organisations to successfully reach new customers, geographical regions and market sectors.
Canon’s full range of network security cameras – including its latest range of Full HD, ultra compact S-series cameras – is now fully supported by NETAVIS Observer video management software. The two companies will continue to work together to support compatibility between future products, with a focus on improved surveillance and analytics capabilities.
