Steele, ND ( Friday Nov 17, 2023 @ 8:15 AM Central —

Two BEK employees recently attended the Axis Connect and Converge Conference (ACCC) in Kansas City, MO. Axis Communications is BEK’s supplier of surveillance and security cameras. Eric Sauter, BEK Business Development and Sales Manager, and Corey Silvernagel, BEK System Support Engineer, say the conference provided valuable insight into the exciting future of surveillance technology.

Axis Communications is the industry leader in video surveillance. The ACCC is an annual, invite-only event for top partners, like BEK. This year’s conference introduced attendees to new innovations and product features.

Sauter and Silvernagel both have expertise in Axis cameras and say they learned about how Artificial Intelligence (AI) is playing a role in the future of surveillance. They note that AI is set to transform these cameras into intelligent devices capable of reading license plates, counting people, detecting falls, sensing motion, and even monitoring inventory and shelves in stores.
