Canon’s newly launched network cameras are designed for both indoor and outdoor environments, including retail, city surveillance and critical infrastructure monitoring. The cameras are the first infrared (IR) based fixed box cameras featuring a 2.4x zoom lens and an ultra-wide 113.4º angle of view for high quality imaging day or night.

In Egypt, there is a great demand for security equipment, ranging across diverse sectors but particularly from commercial, retail and transportation sectors. “Given the importance of ensuring security and safeguarding people, property and assets, entities such as commercial and retail outlets increasingly rely on robust surveillance systems as part of their overall security strategy.

Commenting on the partnership with Canon, Khaled, Managing Director, CCS said : “The need for remote surveillance, and screening and detection is more pressing today than it has ever been in the past. Canon has some of the best technology available today, fully capable of meeting every surveillance need of Egypt. We are delighted to partner with them and distribute this technology in Egypt.”
