Axis Communications awards A/NZ partners

19 Jun 2019

Axis Communications has concluded a week-long event at Hamilton Island’s Reef View Hotel, culminating in the company’s flagship Partner Awards night.

Delegates from several significant security vendors attended the summit, including major sponsors Milestone Systems and 2N, as well as Allied Telesis, Tyco Exacq, Genetec, SAFR (from Real Networks), Geutebruck and Hitachi. 

Products and solutions from all vendor partners were actively demonstrated at regular sessions throughout the event.

Major awards were given out by region, as follows:

Distributor of the Year Award

Australia: Anixter Australia

New Zealand: Channel Ten Security Imports

Oceania: Hills

Partner of the Year Award

Australia: Chubb Fire and Security

New Zealand: Advanced Security Group

“Our partners are critical to our success in the region, and as much as we rely on our own ability to innovate as a company, we rely on our partners to embrace new technologies and advancements. We are extremely lucky to have such a strong group of innovative, forward-looking companies to work with across Oceania,” says Axis South Pacific region sales director Wai King Wong.

The Axis Summit also featured a new product showcase, revealing a wide array of innovative security products due to land in the region over the next few months. 

Among these, the vendor highlighted cameras that offer superior vision in ultra low-light conditions, functions for protecting privacy, as well as industry-specific solutions for markets including retail, healthcare, education and more.

Axis’ expanded portfolio of audio solutions was also showcased, with the vendor due to release a fresh campaign across A/NZ targeting the audio security market in 2019.

“In many deployments, audio speakers outnumber cameras, sometimes as much as five-to-one. We want the market to realise how much scope there is to capitalise on the integration of cameras and speakers, along with other cutting-edge security technology. Axis is now very well-positioned to corner this market in our region,” says Wong.

Regional Director Ivy Sun from IHS Markit gave attendees a wide-ranging overview of the surveillance market, and a spokesperson from New Zealand company Foodstuffs discussed industry innovations and how the company are using Axis products in their security mission.

Stephen Knights, Director of the Australian Information Security Association (AISA) gave a keynote speech on cyber defences and the role that video recording plays in the cyber landscape. 

The Summit concluded with two days of the Axis Technical Conference featuring workshops on key topics such as Cybersecurity and scripting.
