Jenne to Help VARs Capitalize on Expanding Network Video Surveillance Equipment Market by Offering Industry Leading Solutions Coupled With Unparalleled Networking Distribution Expertise

AVON, OH--(Marketwire - Jan 18, 2012) - Jenne Inc., a leading value-added distributor of IP telephony, audio and video conferencing, data networking and IT security products, announced that it has signed an agreement with Panasonic System Networks Company of America (PSNA), a unit of Panasonic Corporation of North America, to distribute the entire line of Panasonic's i-PRO branded IP video surveillance solutions. Jenne -- which has been distributing other Panasonic solutions for over 25 years -- will be offering the i-PRO line of products to its U.S. customer base which consists of over 17,000 networking focused resellers.

Jenne introduces the Panasonic surveillance portfolio at a time when resellers are looking for new growth opportunities, both in networking and security. The total market for video surveillance equipment in the Americas is forecast to grow at an annual compound rate (CAGR) of over 10 percent for the next five years to be worth almost $5.5 billion in 2015. The network video surveillance equipment market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 24 percent over the next five years*.

"Our expanded distribution arrangement with Panasonic represents an enormous opportunity for our reseller base," commented Ray Jenne, executive vice president, operations & product management of Jenne. "By providing best-in-class IP-oriented surveillance solutions, we are able to help our SME-oriented VARs increase their wallet share with existing customers, as well as organically expand their solutions to include an attractive security-based solutions portfolio."

As part of its launch activities for the Panasonic i-PRO product line, Jenne will be offering on boarding activities such as training through its Jenne University, as well as configuration expertise and comprehensive technical support to its reseller base in the coming weeks. In addition, Jenne will provide its VARs access to a working lab for testing and evaluation.

With over 50 years of innovation in video surveillance, PSNA has engineered a long list of technology breakthroughs. Its Super Dynamic III brought groundbreaking imaging technology and intelligent camera features to video surveillance, and its new line of i-PRO SmartHD network cameras incorporates the UniPhier® System LSI chip for high-definition image quality and exquisite color reproduction using lower bandwidth. The i-PRO line also offers scalability along with Panasonic's renowned imaging quality.

Panasonic's i-PRO SmartHD cameras are able to deliver a cost-efficient means to instantly enhance and detect individuals' faces. Employing the latest innovations in HD face detection technology, select i-PRO SmartHD cameras are able to identify stored faces with real-time video, and alert the user when unauthorized individuals come into view.
