Hikvision Digital Technology Co., Ltd., the leading worldwide supplier of digital-video surveillance equipment, is proud to announce that its surveillance work at the Shanghai World Expo 2011 has been short-listed in the "Security Project or Installation of the Year" category by the IFSEC 2011 Security Industry Awards. This award acknowledges the people, products and technological advancements that have played a major part in the security industry over the past year.

Six projects are nominated for this prestigious award. Hikvision's entry is particularly notable for its large-scale high-definition surveillance and well-deployed system structure. Additionally, its high quality, along with smooth and steady performance, stood out at the Shanghai World Expo.

Over 7,000 Hikvision HD-fixed and PTZ cameras have been utilised to monitor Shanghai's Pudong District, the setting for World Expo 2010 - which attracted 100 million visitors from 190 countries. This project represents one of the world's largest deployments of a high-definition video surveillance system.

A specific challenge at the World Expo 2010 was for these cameras to give users the ability to track and zoom-in on individuals or vehicles, so that facial details and license plates could be observed. In response, Hikvision supplied HD cameras that met these requirements: delivering video with resolution of up to 1600x1200 pixels in real time. In addition, confronted on the ground with demands for image clarity, Hikvision used HD-SDI interface in preference to the regular CVBS approach, combined with optic fibre to ensure minimal delay.

"Since our Beijing Olympics project two years ago, this is the second time we have been short-listed for this IFSEC award. Along with these prestigious applications, our high performance products are currently being used - in a variety of applications - in more than 100 countries around the world," said Yangzhong Hu, president of Hikvision. "This nomination will again serve as motivation for Hikvision to continue our progress in product development and technological innovation. Our goal continues to be one that caters to users' need, and to continually provide high quality products and solutions to the video surveillance industry."
