Niranj Sangal, Group CEO, OMA Emirates

OMA Emirates, a company specialised in technologies for the payment industry, has acquired India-based Mobiswipe.

The new acquisition will see the addition of mobile of sale (mPOS) solutions to the company's offerings across the Middle East, Eastern Europe and APAC regions.

The addition of Mobiswipe's mPOS solution will enable OMA Emirates to give its clients the capability of managing both credit and debit card payments via a simple mobile application. Compliant with PCI-DSS and PA-DSS, the mPOS solution can be accessed through an Android smartphone or tablet that is loaded with the Mobiswipe application, as well as connected to an EMV certified pocket-size card reader.

Niranj Sangal, group CEO, OMA Emirates Group, said: "In keeping with OMA Emirates' expansion plans into new geographies and our experience in POS Management across Middle East, it was important for us to add an mPOS solution to the existing portfolio. The new investment in Mobiswipe provides us a stronger platform to broaden our set of business solutions and services."

He added: "This comes at a timely moment when we see an increasing number of consumers using mobile technology for payments and who have higher expectations from retailers to provide them with superior solutions that will increase their convenience while shopping. The new solution will help us provide our merchants with a wholesome mPOS ecosystem that is a combination of mobility, payment and business processing across all sales channels."

Suresh Santhanaramakrishnan, Joint CEO, MobiSwipe, commented: "As a company that has specialist solutions for the payment industry and the increasing use of mobile technology, the acquisition by OMA Emirates is the perfect opportunity for MobiSwipe to reach larger markets and for companies to harness the business impacts of technology advancements.

"As an India based company, the new developments gives us the opportunity to enter new markets such as the Middle East, North Africa and Eastern Europe."

Dahua Technology launches ePoE IP system

Dahua Technology Co., Ltd. is launching a system of extended Power over Ethernet (ePoE) devices including cameras, network switches and network recorders. Dahua ePoE IP system supports up to 800 metres between the ePoE camera and the ePoE network switch or ePoE NVR with an embedded switch. It overcomes the limitations of traditional Ethernet and POE (both restrict cable distances to around 100 metres (328 feet) between network ports) and eliminates the need for Ethernet extension devices or additional network switches.

The future is here - when surveillance meets AI

What will the world be like when surveillance meets AI (Analytics Intelligence)?

According to an IHS report from September 2016, security camera shipments continue to grow at 14.1% CAGR and are predicted to reach 190 million units in 2020, despite revenue growth having slowed to 8.1% CAGR. There are just too many cameras and video footage to be digested by human operators. Most security video footage is erased or over-written without being watched. Video Analytics (VA) Technology was once perceived as a solution to automate the utilisation of abundant video footage resources. By means of identifying and tagging the appearance of certain patterns in a video, the VA or AI system could perform search and run statistics on it.
