For the first time, MOBOTIX welcomed an expanded partner showcase including Gold Sponsorship from Konica Minolta,

recognition, portable surveillance, wireless connectivity and IoT.

“Our Global Partner Conference marks the start of a new journey for MOBOTIX that starts with acknowledging our traditions, embracing a transition onto a new path that welcomes the opportunities of tomorrow,” says Thomas Lausten, chief executive officer for MOBOTIX.

“MOBOTIX is changing and part of that evolution is embracing a future with a new-found passion and openness that includes industry standards and third party partners with the goal of delivering higher value solutions.

“Our new mission statement to go ‘Beyond Human Vision’ is the heart of a philosophy that recognises that video surveillance is part of a wider potential with MOBOTIX as a foundational platform for innovative solutions to real world challenges in manufacturing, retail, healthcare, transportation and many other areas.”

The event also coincided with the launch of a new MOBOTIX website, company branding and the first version of a global partner locator, plus a new white paper on the vital role MOBOTIX is playing in protecting its technologies from cyberattack.
