Remember The World's Most Demanding Surveillance Requirements?
Well, they are expanding to new countries and Axis is excited.
Axis Middle East and Africa Marketing Manager said [sarcasm / fake]:
"We are going to beat our number easy this year. I am getting a big bonus while all you suckers get more cameras than you need. Woohoo."
Actually, he said in the article titled "Axis praises mandatory video surveillance in Dubai":
"By making these systems compulsory, Dubai authorities are taking a proactive approach to crime prevention, emergency response and protecting the people and property of this city."
Axis is especially encouraged that cameras are mandatory in residential buildings, arguing:
"Apartments, for example, tend to have large, frequently-changing populations, which means building residents rarely know each other."
If Axis could only get this to happen in the US, it would surely boost their struggling growth numbers.
