The Doha Exhibition Center in Qatar certainly was a safe and secure place, these past few days. On 20 and 21 October, thousands of security sector professionals from the GCC countries, Asia and Africa were there, at the center, for Milipol 2014 - the International exhibition of internal State security. At the booth of Barco partner Salam Technology, they learned learn how Barco solutions can help companies and authorities raise security levels, 24/7.
Integrated control room systems
As one of Qatar's top technology Integrators, Salam Technology absolutely had to be there, at this year's edition of Milipol, to demonstrate its integrated mission critical control room systems. Barco was the omnipresent visualization brand at its booth. Salam Technology set up a curved, LED-lit Barco OverView Seamless Videowall (OSV) at its stand to show how it can be used to visualize a mix of data and video in very high quality, in crisis operations rooms, brainstorming and planning rooms or more traditional control room applications. In addition, the booth set-up included our OBLX freestanding display structure as well our business projectors and the ClickShare presentation system.
The security market in the Middle East is booming. In 2012, it grew 12% to a value of EUR16 billion, compared to an average of 5.5% growth in overall spending worldwide, according to a survey by trade publisher En Toute Sécurité. The market growth is clearly demonstrated by the great success of the biannual Milipol trade show: the Exhibition surface area has almost doubled in the last ten years and the number of visitors and Official Delegations is ever increasing.
