1. Dahua Technology – Joel Rieger detailed how this Chinese company that had been best known stateside as a leading OEM provider is now bringing its brand to the U.S. The $6 billion manufacturer’s product portfolio not only includes a broad range of video surveillance devices but it also showed a range of other technologies at ASIS such as access control and biometrics that Rieger says it also plans to soon bring to American shores. He said the business is fulling building out its U.S. service and support network, with skilled engineers and tools available to help integrators succeed. Dahua employs 7,000 people and holds 442 patents.
2. FLIR – Dwight Dumpert demonstrated the thermal imaging innovator’s new FC-Series of cameras, which combine thermal with built-in video analytics for perimeter intrusion detection across a variety of applications. He said the cameras deliver best-in-class thermal image detail with onboard edge-based analytics with easy-to-create custom tripwires and regions of interest. They can also automatically detect and classify human, vehicle and other intrusions, significantly reducing the number of false alarms, Dumpert said. He added that the product was an outgrowth from the acquisition of Trafficon, as FLIR spent three years optimizing that firm’s intelligent transportation system technology for thermal-based security surveillance.
3. IDIS – Jason Burrows spoke about the Korean company as an innovation leader and highlighted its 4K NVR with H.265 compression and its new latency-free, 5-megapixel 360â° fisheye camera. He explained how the company has moved to the forefront with its own brand after spending 18 years a leading OEM. IDIS rolled out operations in the U.K. in 2013, Middle East in 2014 and has been doing the same in the U.S. this year. Burrows discussed the company’s new Dallas headquarters outfitted with advanced demo and training areas. He said all IDIS products are made in-house to facilitate superior interoperability, and that the company funnels 50% of all revenue back into R&D. Burrows says DirectIP’s auto find and auto configure capabilities are the industry’s easiest integrator IP tools.
