Pelco On the Move With Mobile Product Demonstrations
The 2005 ISC West show marks the second anniversary for CCTV manufacturer Pelco’s Mobile Product Showcase (MPS). Introduced at the 2003 event, the MPS is a demonstration room on wheels — driving to trade events, dealers, distributors, end users and other Pelco customers.
The MPS provides hands-on presentations of products and is staffed by experts in video security. Logging more than 200,000 miles across the U.S. and Canada, the original MPS truck was joined by two additional trucks in 2004. Pelco says the North American fleet of three trucks will soon have a cousin across the Atlantic, as the company plans to introduce an MPS in Europe.
