Italian video security acquisition for Motorola

Motorola Solutions has announced it has acquired Italian-based ruggedized video security solutions Videotec.

According to the company, the acquisition complements Motorola Solutions’ line of fixed video cameras by expanding its portfolio to incorporate Videotec’s fixed and PTZ (Pan, Tilt and Zoom) cameras which are specifically designed for extreme conditions and hazardous environments, specifically ports, energy and transportation hubs.

Videotec will continue to act as a subsidiary within Motorola Solutions following the deal and chief executive Alessio Grotto said they would “[work] together to innovate technologies that stand up to some of the most challenging conditions”.

Greg Brown, chairman and CEO of Motorola Solutions, said: ““Protecting the security and operational continuity of critical infrastructure is vital to our cities and businesses. With Videotec’s specialised suite of cameras, we’re extending the breadth of our portfolio to help secure and support the demanding environments of these complex, essential industries.”

As part of its work with companies including Taiwan's high speed railway THSR, Juventus’ Turin Stadium in Italy, the largest dairy in Jordan Youm Farm, Videotec helps operators to quickly detect and respond to abnormal events or dangerous situations.
