 Hikvision network cameras ranked first at the 2011 IMS Research Results show
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.

Network video surveillance and monitoring has become an inevitable trend, with more and more CCTV suppliers developing and promoting network products. Hikvision remains a leader among them.

"In addition to concentrating on the development of high performance back-end products - such as DVRs and NVRs - we are dedicated to enhancing our R&D capability in network cameras, so as to maintain our leadership in this ever-changing market," Mr. Cai said. "Furthermore, moving forward, Hikvision will continue to strengthen our strategic collaboration with our video-management software partners; integrating our products with industry-leading software and hardware manufacturers, and continuing to bring greater value and versatility to the customer," Mr. Cai summed up.
