A summit of international security and video surveillance specialists, hosted by IDIS in Seoul, South Korea, earlier this month focused on some of the key drivers that will shape the global video market over the next three years.

The growing importance of upcoming innovations in AI, recording and camera technology, network security, extended warranties and the need for increasingly powerful VMS capabilities were among topics discussed at the event.

The summit also focused on the importance of secure design and manufacturing to dispel common market concerns around ‘backdoors’ and how the use of proprietary protocols harden network security. The agenda also covered sector specific application developments in key markets. Held over two days, the annual summit has grown in scope over the last three years and is a chance to network with market specialists from around the world to share lessons from projects.

Concluding the summit, IDIS Chief Executive Officer, Y.D. Kim, presented 2018 Business Partner Awards to three companies – Avix (Russia), Trinet (Singapore) and Red Office (Bangladesh) – in recognition of their commitment to a close partnership and their performance over the last year.

“Our three award winners, and indeed all our partners attending this summit, demonstrate that the surest route to success is always through collaboration,” said Joon Jun, President of the IDIS Global Business Division.
