Dubai to host launch of year marking two decades of innovation

Join IDIS at 16.00hrs, 23 Jan 2017, Intersec 2017 for media briefing and reception at Stand S1-F26, Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.


Starting with a launch celebration at Intersec 2017 in Dubai, IDIS will be marking 20 years at the forefront of global surveillance innovation with an exciting programme of events that will run throughout 2017.

With the focus on celebrating the past, present and future of IDIS, 2017 will see the company reflect on the tremendous progress and changes in the industry over the last two decades. At the same time, the anniversary events will demonstrate the company’s ongoing commitment to champion continuous research and innovation in security, surveillance and business intelligence to meet the needs of a fast-changing world.

Kicking off at Intersec 2017, IDIS will showcase how it is pioneering the next-generation technologies that will shape the future of security, surveillance and analytics over the next 20 years and beyond. With a wide range of new solutions on display that make up part of the IDIS Total Solution, IDIS promises to deliver the ultimate surveillance experience at this year’s exhibition.

Throughout 2017, IDIS will be running a lively programme of special events at its regional offices, across social media and at key international tradeshows, along with fun activities like competitions, giveaways, videos, awards and more. Most importantly, the celebrations will be a chance to involve and recognise the phenomenal contribution of IDIS partners, customers and employees who made the last 20 years such a success.

Founded in 1997 by experts in computer science and artificial intelligence, IDIS has been at the vanguard of surveillance innovation for over two decades. By 1998, IDIS had pioneered the move from analogue to digital surveillance, pushing the company to number one in global digital video recorder (DVR) sales, seeing sales reach over $50 million by 2005, and winning many business accolades along the away.

In 2013, IDIS launched its own brand business as well as DirectIP™, a truly game-changing plug-and-play surveillance solution that eliminates the obstacles and headaches of installing and operating networked video surveillance. By 2015, IDIS established regional headquarters in Europe, the Middle East, and the United States of America while simultaneously bringing to market the IDIS Total Solution, which offers a comprehensive line up of equipment, software, and unique technologies that meet the surveillance needs of businesses large and small while ensuring a low total cost of ownership.

Today, IDIS has grown to become a global security company that designs, develops, and manufactures surveillance solutions for a wide range of commercial and public sector markets. As the largest video surveillance manufacturer in South Korea, with headquarters and manufacturing facilities just outside of Seoul, IDIS operates across 50 countries and 100+ strategic partners. A truly world-leading total solution provider, IDIS has more than two million recorders installed worldwide and over 16.5 million cameras utilising IDIS technology.

Building on this record, IDIS is offering visitors to Intersec 2017 a first look at some of the ground-breaking and new technologies that are set to define the future of the security sector. They include:

IDIS Solution Suite: Modular enterprise-level video management software (VMS)

IDIS 64 Channel NVR: HD real-time recording, 900Mbps throughput, and failover cover

IDIS ANPR: Unprecedented accuracy, true multi-lane field of view, and superb image quality

Joon Jun, President of the Global Business Division, said: “What makes IDIS a market leader is not only understanding industry trends, but looking at how we apply new technologies to make them affordable and accessible to a wide range of businesses. In terms of the future, IDIS will continue to offer a true total solution that will be more robust, encompassing a wider range of technologies that make video surveillance even more resilient and easier to install and operate. For example, when IDIS launched DirectIP, it made network surveillance more accessible to a wider range of customers in terms of affordability and offered unparalleled ease of installation and use, all without trading cost for performance, quality, or reliability.

“Looking toward the next 20 years, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things (IoT) permeate the industry. IDIS intends to do the same by utilising these types of cutting-edge technologies and making them both simple for installers and end users to install and operate as well as cost effective for businesses large and small. We will also continue to look at how video data can be utilised beyond security operations to deliver business intelligence and further deliver on our promise of a low total cost of ownership. We will also stay committed to our mission to contribute to a safe and more secure world through our commitment to continual innovation and by fostering a culture of creativity.”
