Zhejiang Uniview Technologies has agreed to become a Quantum value-added reseller and strategic alliance partner.

Quantum asserts the reseller is one of the top three video surveillance system integrators in China, offering a comprehensive line of IP video surveillance products ― including IP cameras, network video recorders, encoders, decoders, storage and client software and applications ― covering such vertical markets as retail, building, education and municipal government.

Uniview will now be able to offer Quantum's full range of scale-out tiered storage products - and according to Quantum, the timing couldn't be better.

Industry research firm IHS Markit has revealed the market for enterprise storage used in security and video surveillance in China is expected to increase at a 26 percent compound annual growth rate between 2014 and 2019. At this rate of growth it will overtake the United States as the largest market in the world for this type of storage by 2018.

Chief executive officer at Uniview, Hermit Zhang says they're delighted to be in partnership with Quantum.

"Uniview is a pioneer in IP video surveillance, and we've continued to build on our leadership, as reflected in the fact that we are growing at an annual rate of more than 50 percent,” says Zhang.

“A key reason for our success has been our ability to deliver powerful, cost-effective solutions that help customers manage the ever-increasing influx of data, and Quantum's multi-tier storage offerings are an excellent addition to our portfolio."

Vice president of surveillance and security solutions at Quantum, Wayne Arvidson shares these sentiments.

"Surveillance customers and partners are increasingly turning to Quantum for not only storage solutions but also technical innovation that enables them to achieve their mission of protecting people and property more efficiently while also extracting business value from video-based data,” says Arvidson.

“Uniview has clearly established itself as a security and surveillance leader in China, and we look forward to working together in enabling customers to meet evolving challenges and capitalize on new opportunities."
