Leading video surveillance camera provider Axis Communications recently announced the opening of a new Axis Experience Center (AEC) in Atlanta.
The technology center is said to be designed to provide business leaders, partners and customers with hands-on experience to view and test the latest in high-performance network cameras and other edge devices, as well as emerging artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, analytics and IP-based security technologies in a simulated environment.
Visitors can also engage in direct access to dedicated Axis industry experts, the company notes.
In alignment with its expansion plans for the Americas, the new Atlanta Axis Experience Center is the 12th AEC in the Axis Americas network to open its doors, preceding four more AECs that are scheduled to launch in 2022-23, according to the company.
Other locations include New York City, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, San Jose, Washington D.C., Mexico City and Sao Paulo. The New York City location opened last November.
“As technology grows and evolves, Axis is proud to be a key innovation driver in the security ecosystem, with a keen understanding that hands-on experiences — and showing versus telling — are paramount to our industry,” says Larry Newman, senior director of sales, Axis Communications.
“We are excited to bolster our presence in the Southeast with the Atlanta AEC, and to build stronger connections with our customers and partners while cultivating new relationships. At this center, visitors can interact with the latest technological innovations that utilize sight, sound and analytics to improve security and optimize business performance.”
