Offering a highest quality offering, with world-class performance and a lower total cost of ownership, the IDIS total solution on exhibit at ASIS 2015 continues the company’s tradition of featuring game changing solutions. 

 

ANAHEIM, SEPTEMBER 28, 2015–IDIS placed its next generation total video surveillance solution front and center on the first day of the ASIS International 61st Annual Seminar and Exhibit in Anaheim, CA (Booth #3401).  IDIS America President, Andrew Myung, and Senior Director of Sales, Keith Drummond, led a robust IDIS America team in the demonstration and discussion of the comprehensive IDIS offering, designed and manufactured in-house to meet all surveillance needs, regardless of size or complexity.

 

 


Alongside the company’s groundbreaking DirectIP™ end-to-end line of surveillance technology, the global surveillance powerhouse highlighted the latest results of its uniquely industry-responsive R&D and engineering focus, with the American debut of the world’s highest performing NVR, an IDIS 360-degree Fisheye camera with industry leading specs (including unrivalled dewarping and digital zoom technology), and a comprehensive high-definition over coaxial cable offering.


IDIS DirectIP™ is a complete range of cameras, monitors, NVRs, and accessories able to leverage a revolutionary non-server, NVR-based approach to bring unparalleled simplicity, high performance, and affordability together as never before. It remains the flagship offering of the total solution, and was presented alongside IDIS Solution Suite™ (ISS), a highly scalable and flexible VMS, offering a unified user experience across different technology platforms in a modular manner that delivers customized feature sets at an affordable price point.  IDIS DirectCX™, the company’s high definition surveillance solution for coaxial cable installations, supporting HD-TVI 2.0, offers the opportunity to leverage existing coaxial cable installations while benefiting from signature IDIS quality and performance.


Specific offerings featured on-stand particularly reflect the IDIS reputation for quality and industry leading innovation:
• the world’s highest performing 4K H.265 NVR, the IDIS DR-6316P-S, with a class-leading network throughput up to 310Mbps (including significantly enhanced image quality on remote clients), leading-edge 4K video out capability, and support for H.265, allow savings of up to 50% of storage space; and

DirectIP™, the IDIS flagship offering, continues to leverage its revolutionary NVR-based approach to bring unparalleled simplicity, high performance, and low total cost of ownership together in one package.  The IDIS DirectIP™ offering is a revolutionary approach to HD surveillance—one that is truly plug-and-play, single-source, and highly affordable, comprising a range of HD cameras, network video recorders (NVR), and monitors and including 4K UHD and H.265 capability.  With guaranteed backwards compatibility within the range, DirectIP™ offers unmatched future-proofing in addition to enhanced ease of installation and use, reduced training requirements, and a lack of unnecessary fees and annual charges.  In this way, DirectIP™ is emblematic of the full IDIS total solution, maximizing simplicity and performance, while driving total cost of ownership down.


Additionally, Myung and Drummond also shared details of new Partner and Training and Certification programs for the Americas, noting that the introduction of these programs represents the meeting of major milestones in the growth and expansion of the IDIS America brand-business, first launched nearly five months ago at ISC West.


Drummond noted, “We are very excited to be here at ASIS for the first time, and to have the chance to show visitors to the IDIS Booth how the comprehensive IDIS total solution—fully designed, developed, and manufactured in house—delivers unprecedented ease of installation and use, and brings down total cost of ownership.

“Whether one’s surveillance needs are great or small, the reasons to partner with IDIS to meet them are compelling. IDIS is the cost-effective way to achieve world-class quality and performance.  Everyone here looks forward to discussing these reasons and more with visitors to our booth during this great show.”
