IDIS designs, develops, manufactures, and supports its products and software all under one roof.

Whether a large corporate enterprise, a retail chain or single site, IDIS has a surveillance solution that meets the needs of an extensive range of businesses. With a broad lineup of one to 12 megapixel (MP) IP cameras, four to 64 channel NVRs, monitors, network accessories, a choice of video management software (VMS), and our DirectCX lineup for customers looking to leverage existing coax cabling, IDIS has a solution that fits.
IDIS has been a pioneer in digital video recording since 1997 and was established due to a passion for technology and an unyielding pursuit of innovation. With 10% of turnover reinvested in research and development (R&D) annually, IDIS is constantly developing new technologies and bringing new innovations to market, all which help our customers strengthen the safety and security of their people, facilities, and assets. At the same time, we have a commitment to delivering the world’s ultimate surveillance experience through technology that is high-performance and reliable, yet simple to install and operate to ensure our customers are more efficient and more productive.
Through our commitment to high quality, low power consumption, and reliable products that are simple to install, use, and maintain, we reduce the burden of implementation and training time while ensuring lower maintenance and energy costs, an extended product lifecycle, and a low total cost of ownership. Our flagship offering, DirectIP, comes with a cost-free VMS and apps—meaning absolutely zero licensing costs. IDIS Solution Suite, our enterprise-level VMS, is both scalable and modular, allowing our customers to only pay once for what they need without any ongoing service or maintenance fees.
Many of the relationships we have with our customers and partners have been in place for two decades, demonstrating our commitment to fostering long-lasting and successful partnerships. We only succeed if our customers and partners succeed and we see them as full members of our team. In their own way, each is at the heart of both our business strategy and success. The IDIS “one team” philosophy encompasses our network’s many cultures, communities, and views and proves that we work best when we work together. Through the sharing of values and ideas, we are enriched by those around us. In turn, we empower each other to grow and succeed.

Our integrity means you can trust us and the technology we provide. We ensure we comply with the legal and regulatory requirements at both global and local levels and seek to be transparent at all times in the way we do business. We believe in open and candid communications with our customers and partners that build trust and ensure success. Our products are manufactured in-house with a consistency of quality and materials, so they can be trusted to deliver as promised. We continually innovate new technologies to ensure and preserve the integrity of the surveillance they provide.
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 the 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.
