Stratera Secures Agreement With Axis Communications to Offer IP Camera Solutions

CANYON RANCH, CA,--(Marketwire - November 20, 2008) - Stratera, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: STRR) announced today that they have been approved by Axis Communication to become an authorized reseller of IP camera solutions.

35 percent annual growth

IMS Research forecasts a strong long term growth for network video products with an average yearly growth of 35 percent the coming five years.

According to a survey carried out by the market research institute IMS Research, the shift from analog to digital technology involves a new approach to the installation of security systems. The closed circuit systems of the past will give way to open and fully integrated systems, something which is possible with Axis' network video solutions. The shift in technology, from analog to digital, is a strong contributory factor in the predicted growth. Other factors are the economic climate, new laws and regulations, and increasing security consciousness throughout the world.

The 2008 edition of the annual IMS Research report "The World Market for CCTV & Video Surveillance Equipment" is based on reported data for 2007 and contains comprehensive information on all vendors providing analogue and digital video surveillance equipment such as cameras, recording solutions and video encoders.
