New thermal imaging cameras on way
The strategic partnership between Opgal Optronic Industries and Ngaro Intelligent Solutions will also advance Opgal's expansion in the European market, it said.
"We are excited about our partnership with such a well-respected technology provider in Spain," said Yair M. Sakov, vice president of the Security Business Unit at Opgal.
"Ngaro's product architecture and independently operating modules enable the design of a variety of solutions to protect infrastructures, facilities, processes and people against terrorism, theft, sabotage, fire, intrusion or any other type of threat which is identifiable by its thermal signature."
Opgal's strength is using state-of-the-art thermal and active-imaging technologies, which will be integrated with Ngaro's analytics algorithms for detection, surveillance and control functionality superior to those based on infrared imaging.
Also, Ngaro's intelligent surveillance and control systems complement Opgal's thermal cameras to deliver intelligent solutions to Spanish and global system integrators.
One immediate benefit is that customers are able to secure a variety of sites at a substantially lower cost, the companies said.
"Opgal's image quality enables us to offer a high-quality, high-accuracy, comprehensive product portfolio addressing key requirements of the security market," said Alvaro Mocholi, International Sales manager of Ngaro. "Our customers are seeking innovation-led smart cameras that can be tailored for cost and performance requirements. We look forward to a successful partnership."
