Tech Data introduces new video surveillance software

IT products distributor Tech Data will now include video surveillance and physical security software in its Apple Specialized Business Unit.

Tech Data Corp. has joined forces with videoNEXT Network Solutions Inc., a physical security information management software developer that runs programs on Mac OS X. Tech Data's Apple VARs can now use videoNEXT's surveillance technologies, which has specific products for small businesses, large organizations and government agencies.

Businesses that use Apple products will no longer need to load virtualization software in order to create a Windows or Linux environment that can run a physical security management system. Users of the video software can use any Apple computer that is connected to the network as an IP security control station.
