Graphic Image Technologies (GIT), a specialist in remote CCTV and control room technologies, video compression and transmission, has announced the inclusion of the full dvtel range of solutions into their product portfolio. dvtel offers world-class open, scalable, end-to-end video surveillance solutions, as well as Network Video Recorders (NVR) IP cameras and encoders, thermal cameras and video analytics. The dvtel solution augments the existing GIT offering to deliver a comprehensive range of security monitoring, surveillance and analysis solutions.

“The addition of the dvtel solutions to our offering enables us to deliver truly end-to-end security surveillance and monitoring solutions. The SerVision offering enables remote monitoring at low bandwidth levels, BriefCam enables users to easily search and find events in recorded footage, and now with dvtel we can incorporate comprehensive analytics and alerts amongst other offerings,” says Mark Chertkow, Managing Director at GIT.

dvtel solutions are based on open protocols, meaning that they can easily integrate with a range of other security solutions. These include access control, sensors, license plate readers, radars, maps and building management systems, to name but a few. dvtel also offers NVR technology in the form of the Horizon solution for networks of up to 100 cameras, and the Meridian, which caters to up to 16 cameras.

In addition to providing complete IP surveillance solutions, dvtel also supplies encoders that can be integrated with existing analogue cameras to convert them to IP. This helps organisations to leverage their existing investment while taking advantage of the benefits of IP-based CCTV solutions.

“Traditionally, dvtel has focused on large enterprise customers, dealing mainly with integrators. Our move into the mid-market with the new products required a different approach, and we recognised the need for a distributor. GIT was the right partner for us, with their solid understanding of video, IP and the local market. Their business is well aligned with ours, and this relationship will enable us to access a new market segment in South and southern Africa, leveraging their existing relationships with an established reseller base,” says Hagay Avraham, Sales Director EMEA at dvtel.

GIT is now the sole distributor of dvtel solutions in the southern African market. The company will be offering a range of high-resolution megapixel IP cameras, thermal imaging cameras, NVRs, video analytics, analogue encoders, servers and storage. In addition, services such as Google Maps integration will enable organisations to establish the geographic location of cameras from mobile devices for monitoring and control of systems from anywhere in the world. GIT will also be offering integration with existing infrastructure and legacy equipment, as well as third party solutions such as access control, to deliver enhanced functionality. Training and certification programmes are currently in the pipeline to ensure resellers and systems integrators can confidently work with the dvtel solutions.
