IDIS uses latest Surveillance Summit in Seoul as platform to sharpen strategic vision for “ambitious video surveillance tech future”

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.

Long-term collaboration

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.

Knowing this, we can all look forward with great confidence to the year ahead.”

Pointer named Premium Partner within newly re-launched Panasonic Security Partner Programme

Pointer has become the first UK integrator to achieve Premium Partner status as part of the newly re-launched Panasonic Security Partner Programme.

The Japanese manufacturer refreshed its channel partner programme earlier this year and installers and integrators involved in video surveillance installations were invited to participate, with their status determined by their level of product training, sales volume and end user feedback.

Premium Partner status gives Pointer – a specialist in the design, installation, service, maintenance and monitoring of electronic security systems – access to additional support from the surveillance systems manufacturer as well as access to pre-qualified sales leads via the dedicated Partner Portal.

Additional benefits include five-year warranties, advanced product replacement, training, technical advice and preferential placement within the Panasonic ‘Where To Buy’ listing on the website.

“Pointer has proven to be an excellent partner for Panasonic,” said Gerard Figols, European category manager at Panasonic. “The company’s expertise in high-end, mission-critical installations suits our product portfolio. We receive a large number of end user leads requesting solutions or products every day, and Premium Partner status means Pointer will have first refusal on these opportunities.”

Pointer has been in business for nearly 50 years. Providing services throughout the UK, it has the knowledge and experience to deliver large-scale projects for blue chip clients that recognise the importance of managing risk for their staff, property and key data.

Pointer’s director Sandy Rowan explained: “We’re delighted to have achieved Premium Partner status with Panasonic. It’s a direct indication of the dedication that our sales and engineering team has when it comes to training and improving their market knowledge. We think that our customers can benefit greatly from Pointer being a Premium Partner of Panasonic, not least in terms of the greater access to support and replacement technology that this affords.”
