In an effort to increase the knowledge base of the IP video community, Samsung (News - Alert) is hosting a series of two-day industry training courses covering IP video, network design and integration.
The Samsung IP Institute (SIPI) sessions are designed for technical salespeople, security rep firms and integrators who want to expand their breadth of knowledge in a number of areas, including basic IP network design and implementation, video management and IP camera image optimization, among other topics.
Samsung, which supplies video surveillance and security products to channels across the globe, believes the two-day sessions will address the need for a higher level of expertise among IP video integrators.
“IP video networks are becoming the norm in video surveillance, so it is more important than ever to provide basic and mid-level technical network design expertise to the channel,” Frank De Fina, Samsung Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, noted in a statement. “Educating the channel to fulfill customer needs in the changing IP video market is one of the ways we are maintaining the value and quality of the Samsung brand.”
The first February sessions have already sold out, however several training dates still have spots available:
