Ipsotek has been awarded a security systems project at the Katara Cultural Village in Doha, Qatar, in partnership with Mannai Trading Co, a Qatari based company listed on the Qatar Stock Exchange. Ipsotek’s VISuite AI platform and VISuite FR facial recognition system have been selected and approved by the Qatar Ministry of Interior to improve the security and safety as well as provide business intelligence at the iconic cultural village of Katara.
Katara is one of the main cultural destinations in Qatar, featuring a museum, open amphitheatre, opera house, cinema, conference hall, beach, Souq and multiple restaurants. Katara hosts hundreds of events and attracts over 10 million visitors each year.
In addition to the project at Katara in collaboration with systems integrator Mannai ICT, Ipsotek has a number of other major projects across Qatar. As such, the company has appointed Jihad Marei as Country Manager for Qatar and is in the process of opening an office in one of Qatar’s Free Zones.
“We are very proud to have been awarded the Katara Heritage Village project with Mannai Trading Co,” said Charlie Bennett, Ipsotek Head of Sales for EMEA. “Mannai has become one of our key strategic partners in Qatar and we have enjoyed collaborating on several projects together this year, which is why we have also chosen to grow our presence in country further by employing Jihad Marei as Country Manager and open a dedicated office in Qatar.”
“We are very pleased to be working with Ipsotek as our solution partner for Artificial Intelligence Video Analytics,” added Shamnad Karuvadi, Deputy Manager ELV Physical Security at Mannai Trading Co. “Ipsotek has added a great deal of value to the Mannai solution portfolio and together we look forward to providing the highest levels of safety and security to protect critical infrastructure. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to Charlie Bennet and Jihad Marei at Ipsotek for their extensive support.”
