Powersoft bolsters Deva team with Kahlau appointment
Powersoft is ramping up support of its Deva technologies, repositioning Karl Kahlau as executive director of the product family.

Kahlau moves to the position from regional sales account manager (EMEA and India) after Powersoft pinpointed potential from focusing on an IoT product.  

He has more than two decades of experience within the export industry where, before joining Powersoft in 2013, for more than 12 years was responsible for sales and marketing, as export sales manager EMEA at Renkus-Heinz.

The core of the system is a self-powered audio system, an HD video camera, a motion-sensor for triggering various functions and an LED light for night surveillance. It is hosted in an IP65-rated enclosure and is networked and zonable within standard Ethernet networking topology. 

Deva also contains a number of sensors and controlling functions, such as built-in GPS with Google Earth allocation and environmental sensors. It can be self-sustainable, has a Solar panel for recharge and Wi-Fi / UMTS / 3G / 4G for communication and networking. The networked system is controllable through the Powersoft Deva Device (PDD) manager or through third-party interaction. 
Kahlau will head a team that aims to reform the global sales and support organisation for the product. Powersoft is focusing on Deva at ISE (February 7 to 10, 2017 at the Amsterdam RAI) with a dedicated booth in hall 7, stand V200. 

Luca Giorgi, director of sales and marketing at Powersoft, said: "To have Karl at the helm, driving the Deva division with Powersoft’s dynamic technical team, is a logical step in the evolution of the product. We are excited about the opportunities for Deva and where it may lead us in the development of next generation multi-media systems for professional use. “
