Bonn, August 04, 2002.- Smartmatic, the device-networking solutions provider, announced this Tuesday an agreement with Geutebrueck to manufacture its VideoDVC controller. The alliance was made in Windhagen, close to this city.

The VideoDVC, designed by Smartmatic based on Geutebrueck technology, is a device that uses the latest technology to capture, record, and transmit digital video, through data networks. "Our solution offers high quality images, with a unique speed of refreshment", says Antonio Mugica, CEO of Smartmatic.

The device is a fundamental part of the operational infrastructure of the AVTM video-surveillance module. This module is part of SmartBank and USP, Smartmatic's solutions for the unified management of physical security for large multisite companies.

Geutebrueck, a European company specialized in the manufacture of video surveillance devices, will produce the parts of the video controller. On the other hand, VideoDVC will be manufactured at the general headquarters of Smartmatic, in Boca Raton (USA).

Says Mugica: "This is a big step in the consolidation of the company's business model. The strategic alliance with Geutebrueck allows us to guarantee a very high manufacturing quality of the products in our portfolio, without the high administrative costs that a plant represents".
