Canon Marketing Japan has signed a reseller agreement with BriefCam, provider of a video analytics solution for law enforcement and enterprise markets.

BriefCam’s Syndex software is currently deployed in more than 40 countries and utilised by law enforcement, public safety, government, and business organizations to transform their raw video data into actionable intelligence.

As the exclusive sales and marketing arm of Canon in Japan, Canon Marketing Japan will be adding BriefCam Sundex to its portfolio in a move the company says will enable it to offer customers a complete video surveillance solution comprising Network Cameras, Video Management and Recording (Milestone XProtect), and Video Content Analytics (BriefCam Syndex).

"We are excited to add BriefCam's Syndex products to our product portfolio," says Koichi Mikami, vice president and group executive for NVS Management Headquarters for Canon Marketing Japan.

BriefCam asserts its Syndex solution will provide Canon Marketing Japan customers with the ability to review hours of video within minutes, rapidly pinpoint people and objects of interest, proactively receive real-time notifications of critical events, and dynamically analyze key performance indicators.  

It certainly seems like a good market to be in as according to researchers at Markets and Markets, the video surveillance market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.4 percent to reach a projected market size of $75.64 billion by 2022.

"We are delighted to add Canon Marketing Japan to our list of valued partners," saysTrevor Matz, president and CEO of BriefCam.
