Dedicated Micros – part of AD Group – the video surveillance solution specialists – announce today that it has sealed a strategic partnership in UK, with Midwich Security – the Security Division of Midwich, the highly successful AV Distributor.

Dedicated Micros and Midwich Security share many philosophies including a focus on quality, value and differentiated benefits, backed by world class training and support.

The Dedicated Micros brand is synonymous with high quality products and technologies which provide seamless video management solutions for users, containing the benefits of 30 years of specialised video surveillance market development experience. All products are designed with inherent installation benefits such as consistent local and remote menu systems, remote camera configuration, plug and play IP video configuration, automatic VLAN creation and secure lock down to protect the Corporate network from potential vulnerabilities.

The partnership with Midwich Security enables major CCTV installers to transition their applications safely and securely into the world of IP video with Dedicated Micros award winning, patented Closed IPTV technology and IP camera -DVR - NVR product solution. The Closed IPTV technology is particularly well suited to the many analogue/hybrid installations where analogue cameras may have been part of the initial estate and users are now looking for an upgrade to an IP video solution without an expensive redesign of their network.

Closed IPTV works with a range of Dedicated Micros products that installers will be familiar with, but however may be unaware that the SD Advanced, high performance DVR/NVR is actually capable of becoming Closed IPTV enabled and as a result a plug and play, safe and secure HD IP camera recording, embedded management and display solution which can be scaled up to any size using Dedicated Micros IP Cameras with Integrated Camera recording.

Says Pauline Norstrom, Group Director/Marketing Director of AD Group and Dedicated Micros “We chose Midwich Security as a strategic partner due to their excellent reputation and successful track record of offering value add solutions to the trade. Both brands are synonymous with a focus on quality and best fit for the application rather than lowest price, resulting in video surveillance solutions which offer an IP Video upgrade path for users and a lower cost of ownership”

Installers should look out for further announcements about special introductory promotions and new product solutions coming to market in the next few weeks and months.
