Milipol Qatar is a biennial tradeshow dedicated to homeland security. In 2018, it incorporated the Civil Defence Conference and Exhibition to become the Global Security and Safety Event. Barco was proud to be on show at the event, alongside our partner of over a decade, Salam Technology. Together, we have tackled the biggest control room and surveillance projects in Qatar—and have gained royal attention for our achievements!
In 2014, Mr. Issa Abdul Salam Abu Issa, Chairman and CEO of Salam Technology was awarded the honorary title of ‘Commander in the Order of Leopold II’, which was bestowed upon him by H.R.H. Princess Astrid, on behalf of His Majesty Philippe, King of the Belgians. The award recognizes his significant contribution to strengthening the cooperation between Belgium and Qatar. And Abu Issa lists the partnership between Salam Technology and Barco as one of the most fruitful collaborations to have facilitated this success. It’s a partnership that has continued to grow and flourish in the years since.
The Salam Technology booth at Milipol Qatar 2018 featured ClickShare CSE-800 & CSE-200—Barco’s wireless presentation system that allows participants to easily share to a central screen from their laptop, tablet or smartphone with just the click of a button. Collaboration is simple and ClickShare’s enhanced security features keep information safe. Also in the tradeshow spotlight were Barco’s RGB laser ODL-721 rear-projection video walls—the most intelligent screens in control-room technology, boasting unique features that maximize uptime and offer reliable, clear video feeds with automatic and continuous calibration.
Barco Sales Director, Marco Fornier, attended Milipol Qatar 2018 and was humbled by the overwhelmingly positive reception of Barco technology. ‘Barco has been collaborating with Salam Technology for over ten years,’ he reflected. ‘It’s such an honor to be here today, celebrating the long-lasting partnership between our companies and our past successes—and sharing a glimpse of the innovative solutions we have coming next.’
Milipol Qatar 2018 was a bustling and enthralling event, brimming with the latest knowledge driving developments in cybersecurity and homeland security. Barco is proud to stand beside Salam Technology on the front line, offering the best technology to keep information secure and places and events safe. A safe and secure future is one that we’re thrilled to help create.
