IDIS History

IDIS was founded in 1997 by experts in computer science and artificial intelligence:
Y.D. Kim, Albert Ryu, and J.H. Jeong.

The company was named Intelligent Digital Integrated Security Co., Ltd. and focused on digital video recording (DVR) technology. The company quickly grew, gaining certification as a “Technology Venture Oriented Company” in 1999 and a listing on the KOSDAQ stock exchange in 2001. ISO9001/14001 certifications followed and in 2006, the company obtained RoHS certification, a first in the DVR industry. The company also became the number one seller of DVRs in the surveillance industry as it was an Original Design Manufacturer/Original Equipment Manufacturer (ODM/OEM) for leading surveillance solution providers.

Currently, Dr. Y.D. Kim serves as CEO.


In the mid-2000s, the company began a series of in-house innovations and acquisitions that expanded the company‘s focus beyond DVRs to include next-generation camera and network video recording (NVR) offerings as well as industrial display technologies.

By 2013, IDIS had moved beyond an exclusive industry role as an ODM/OEM for leading surveillance solutions providers, launching a branded security solution, DirectIP™, at the IFSEC International security exhibition in Birmingham, United Kingdom. The company subsequently launched DirectIP and other components of the IDIS Total Solution in the Middle East in 2014 at the Intersec exhibition in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and in the Americas in 2015 at the ISC West tradeshow in Las Vegas, Nevada. Additionally, at each regional launch, the company debuted regional headquarters and staff dedicated to the sale and support of IDIS branded offerings in those areas.
