The recent Surveillance Summit of international security and video surveillance specialists, hosted by IDIS in Seoul, South Korea, focused on some of the key drivers that will shape the global video market over the next three years.
The growing importance of upcoming innovations in Artificial Intelligence, recording and camera technology, network security, extended warranties and the need for increasingly powerful VMS capabilities were among those topics discussed at the event.
Delegates from around the world had their first opportunity to see the second iteration of IDIS’ Deep Learning Analytics (IDLA). Version 2.0 IDLA sets new market benchmarks with accuracy of 96% and a speed of up to 200 fps permitting analysis of 32 channels on a simultaneous basis.
Further, IDLA doesn’t need additional processing power, meaning that end users will not have to upgrade existing hardware. When IDLA becomes commercially available early next year, IDIS will remain committed to its promise of a low total cost of ownership by affording users access to both standard and advanced analytical functionality, such as appearance searching, through just one simple and affordable license.
Secure design and manufacturing
The Summit also focused on the importance of secure design and manufacturing to dispel common market concerns around ‘back doors’ and assert how the use of IDIS proprietary protocols hardens network security.
The agenda also covered sector-specific application developments in key markets where IDIS solutions are increasingly being adopted, including large-scale projects in the Asian region, Europe, the Middle East and the United States.
Held over two days, the annual Surveillance Summit has grown in scope over the last three years and is now an important diary date for those attending. It’s seen as a chance to network with leading market specialists from around the world to share lessons from projects which are frequently at the cutting edge of surveillance development.
The Summit is also used as an opportunity to focus on business development, whereby IDIS works closely with its partners to refine its marketing and media strategy for the coming year, share the latest information about market trends and insights and drive product development and continual improvements in technical support.
This long-term, collaborative approach between IDIS and its business partners is a key element of the company’s growth strategy. It’s this customer-focused drive that has seen IDIS grow continuously since 1997 to become Korea’s largest video surveillance manufacturer, with regional operations now expanding across 50-plus countries.
Concluding the Summit, IDIS CEO Y.D. Kim (pictured above, far right in each image) presented 2018 Business Partner Awards to three companies – namely Avix (Russia), Trinet (Singapore) and Red Office (Bangladesh) – in recognition of their commitment to a close partnership and their outstanding performance over the last year.
Collecting the awards were (pictured above, left to right): Aleksander Khrakov (CEO of Avix), Tex Tan (CEO) and Jason Tan (managing director) of Trinet and Naeem Uddin Mahmood of Red Office.
“Our three award winners, and indeed all of our partners attending this Summit, demonstrate that the surest route to success is always through collaboration,” said Joon Jun, president of the IDIS Global Business Division. “Gathered at this Summit we have a level of expertise that’s unrivalled in our sector, and we share a commitment to giving our customers the very best in video surveillance solutions. Knowing this, we can all look forward with great confidence to the year ahead.”
