Hikvision, a supplier of innovative video surveillance products and solutions, recently welcomed the delegates from the BRICS Communications ministers conference to its head office in Hangzhou, China. Cynthia Ho, VP at Hikvision, and Keen Yao, VP at Hikvision international business centre, hosted the reception, and introduced Hikvision’s latest technology innovations to the delegates.

Technological innovation

During the visit, the conference delegates learned about Hikvision's achievements in technological innovation over the past years. Of note are the company’s advances and products made using AI, Internet of Things technology, big data, and cloud technologies – all highly acclaimed by the delegates. Along with that, the guests were also impressed with Hikvision’s expanded overseas business development, including its global business network establishment, the implementation of its localisation strategy, and the value continually being added to its worldwide customers.

Smart Security experience centre

In the Hikvision Smart Security experience centre, conference delegates observed a collection of intelligent functions driven by AI technology, including facial recognition, human body feature detection, and multiple target tracking. They also witnessed how improvements in data-driven algorithm performance have accelerated video intelligence in various “Smart” applications – Smart cities, buildings, transportation, manufacturing, and logistics, to name a few. Hikvision demonstrated its mounting experience in these vertical solutions.

Mutual communication and collaboration

After the visit, the delegates expressed interest in strengthening mutual communication and collaboration, and in enabling more technological innovations to serve the BRICS countries – the economically defined group that includes Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.

Hikvision has opened local branch offices in each of these countries, each with 80-90% local employees. Expansive localisation provides customers instant support and high-quality service. South Africa, as an example, incorporates a service network with offices in Johannesburg, Cape Town, and the country of Nigeria, covering marketing and technical support services for 45 countries in Africa.
