TDSi partners with Milestone at Integration Expo UK

Integrated security solutions manufacturer TDSi will be appearing as a partner at the Milestone Integration Expo UK, which is being held at the Hilton at St George’s Park Hotel, Burton Upon Trent on Wednesday 19 September.

The Milestone Integration Expo UK provides visitors with a greater insight into the powerful integration of Milestone’s XProtect VMS (Video Management System) solution by a number of complementary security systems, including TDSi’s EXgarde security management software.

Alex Rumsey, director of UK sales at TDSi, commented: “Given that it’s the world’s Number One provider of VMS solutions, we’re proud that Milestone has invited us to partner with them at this event. This is the perfect opportunity for installers, specifiers and end users to view and understand the powerful integration capabilities of using Milestone’s XProtect VMS and our EXgarde solution in order to provide a truly 360-degree view of security management.”

The event will feature eight Milestone Partners, all of them providing insights into the flexibility of their integrated security products. Live demonstrations will be held throughout the day from 9.30 am until 4.45 pm, giving visitors the opportunity to attend and participate in as many of these as required.

The Milestone Integration Expo UK is free to attend, but requires registration. Visitors will have access to the newest technologies within access control, video analytics, body-worn cameras, system design and storage optimisation, along with networking opportunities with some of the most successful IP video systems integrators, resellers and distributors in the UK.

Rumsey concluded: “Unlike a general trade show, this is a highly focused event which will provide specific details and assistance for anyone that uses Milestone’s market-leading systems. All of the presentation teams will be there to provide a solid educational forum and to discuss specific applications for the technology in the real world.”

Dahua UK to open northern office in ‘partner’ city of Leeds

Dahua Technology is expanding its presence in the UK with the opening of a new office in Leeds. This is the first time that Dahua – the world’s second-largest video surveillance solutions manufacturer – has expanded in the UK beyond its existing offices in Maidenhead, Berkshire.

The new northern office will be located at the White Rose Office Park in Millshaw Park Lane, Leeds, which is around four miles south of the city centre. With its handy location between the M62, M1 and M621 and also with nearby rail connections to Leeds city centre, the new office boasts excellent transport links.

The main aim of establishing a permanent presence in the North of England is for Dahua to provide better support for its local distributors, integrators and installers, as well as to offer training locally and provide a local base for partner events and client demonstrations.

Dahua Technology’s global headquarters in China is located in Hangzhou, a city that has been twinned with Leeds since 1988. It was no surprise, then, when the company approached Leeds City Council to help the business find a suitable location for its new offices. The link between the two cities generates co-operation in the fields of business, education and culture. Last year, officials and representatives from the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership visited Dahua’s global headquarters as part of a delegation to Hangzhou and Shanghai.

Dahua’s connections with Leeds and the fact that its home city of Hangzhou is twinned with the ‘Northern Powerhouse’ have resulted in links with many local companies and public bodies. “Working with a proactive organisation such as Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership really helps us, because the partnership goes out of its way to create mutually beneficial business activities,” explained Ben Perkins, head of marketing for Dahua UK and Ireland.

Perkins added: “The partnership attracts business and international money to the region, which not only makes a positive impact on the lives of the people who live and work in Leeds, but also brings a great wealth of talent into the area. This will benefit Dahua as we grow our presence in the region.”

Councillor Judith Blake, leader of Leeds City Council, stated: “Leeds has a long and prestigious relationship with China. Our trade and investment missions have helped build relationships. It’s great to welcome Dahua to Leeds as a result of this activity. We will be holding a series of business meetings in Hong Kong, Hangzhou and Qingdao to review how our cities can work together to increase trade and deliver economic growth.”

The Leeds City Region covers Barnsley, Bradford, Calderdale, Craven, Harrogate, Kirklees, Leeds, Selby, Wakefield and York, and has a £1 billion-plus Local Growth Deal in place to boost jobs and growth across the region. It’s home to the UK’s largest regional financial centre and has a digital technology sector now worth more than £6.6 billion.
