For two consecutive years, Hikvision was recognized as the No. 1 worldwide supplier of DVRs by IMS Research ‘World Market for CCTV and Video Surveillance Equipment Report 2011'. Of particular note, for the very first time, Hikvision was ranked No. 7 in the category of network cameras. In terms of CCTV & Video Surveillance Equipment, Hikvision moved up from last year's fifth position to No. 4 for this year. Notably, Hikvision soared all the way up to the No. 1 spot for supplier of enterprise DVRs, which greatly improved upon last year's fifth position.
