IDIS is working with systems integrators to identify and secure video projects in post-COVID growth sectors. Key among them are the: logistics, education, cannabis sales & production, and residential markets. Integrators affected by project delays or cancellations in their established markets are looking to diversify their customer portfolios. A recent analysis released online highlights sectors that will offer significant prospects for new video installations and system upgrades, as customers look to expand, to drive efficiency, or to introduce COVID-safe site control measures. Cyber organised crime “After a number of project successes across North America, we are seeing opportunities in some exciting areas,” said Andrew Myung, President, IDIS America. “There’s a buoyancy in the logistics sector, as ecommerce continues to grow, and COVID-19 has sped up the move to online with many older shoppers turning to online buying for the first time during the pandemic.” “Additionally, distribution and logistics centres need to keep up and upgrade their operations, which results in additional measures to secure the supply chain, track goods in and out as well as mitigating internal shrinkage and external threats such as being targeted by physical and cyber organised crime.” Opportunities also abound in the education sector; video surveillance is a cost-effective solution for schools considering ways to leverage their existing surveillance investment to help students and staff adhere with social distancing, occupancy limits and prevent bottlenecks in corridors and common areas. Smart automation solutions Systems integrators are positioning themselves by partnering with the right vendors, including IDIS" And the fast-growing cannabis sector is likely to continue performing well, with analysts expecting a continued CAGR of up to 20% through to 2027, driven by the increasing legalisation of cannabis for medical as well as adult recreational use. Working with AV integrators in the residential and small business sectors, IDIS is seeing a growth in demand not only for surveillance to increase security and safety, but also to provide convenience and efficiency with though smart automation solutions that integrate lighting, music streaming, HVAC, and a range of IoT devices that can be controlled remotely from mobile apps. In this COVID-19 age, businesses concerned with becoming infection hotspots are looking to increase site monitoring, while pressures to drive efficiency are pushing other businesses to leverage the latest AI video capabilities, with new systems and upgrades, Myung notes. “Yet, for integrators without previous experience in these growth markets, accessing those opportunities can be difficult. Consequently, systems integrators are positioning themselves by partnering with the right vendors, including IDIS.” Reduced training requirements IDIS is structured to collaborate closely with systems integrators and offers them benefits including lower total cost of service (TCS). Advantages of the single-supplier model include improved sales planning, seamless technical support for end-to-end solutions, and reduced training requirements. Looking ahead, Myung says IDIS will be further supporting integration partners by building out solutions to help businesses enforce safe working practice in Q4. “We will be helping them meet new government and industry guidelines with competitive video solutions for applications including building occupancy and density control, social distancing compliance and face mask policy compliance.”

IDIS America, the regional headquarters of South Korean security technology innovator, IDIS, announces Emily’s Place, as the first recipient of a comprehensive donation of company’s award-winning technology as part of its ‘Create a Better World’ campaign. The campaign, announced at the 2019 ISC West security show in April, is designed to support and better empower community organisations, the facility’s mission of providing long-term, multi-faceted care and support for domestic abuse survivors seeking to permanently leave their lives of abuse behind. The IDIS donation was facilitated and installed with the support of the KOTRA, the Korean trade promotion agency, and security integrator Integrated Lifestyles. Emily’s Place, which provides a shared living environment for women and children for up to 24 months, empowers residents to permanently break from an abusive past through committed and active engagement that includes counselling, case management, internal programs, and the mapping of measurable goals for personal development and a successful transformation of their lives. Corporate mission statement The facility further connects residents with assistance from partners within the larger community, allowing them to build an essential network of support. Additional partnerships with local, state, and federal agencies, as well as support from businesses like IDIS, allow Emily’s Place to be a strategic, efficient, and effective “bridge,” from traditional women’s shelters to a truly independent and self-sufficient life. IDIS has spent more than two decades leveraging every opportunity to use technology Keith Drummond, IDIS America Senior Director, noted “IDIS has spent more than two decades leveraging every opportunity to use technology and innovation to make the world a safer and more secure place for all. We believe in it so much, it’s actually our corporate mission statement. And while we’ve helped do some amazing things to that end in the past 20 years, there’s always something particularly special about finding opportunities like this one to help make the world a better place.” Transforming lives “Emily’s Place provides essential, transformative services to those among society’s most vulnerable, and works with a second-to-none alliance of staff, volunteers, local and federal agencies, and partner businesses to do the most important work of all for someone escaping a life of abuse: helping those affected to grow, stand, and truly thrive on their own. Essential to that effort is the provision of a safe and secure living, childcare, and service environment, allowing staff and residents alike to focus single-mindedly on the core mission of transforming lives.” Adds Andrew Myung, President of IDIS America, “At IDIS, we know the important role security technology can play in safeguarding people and places and ensuring the peace of mind that comes with strong security. Our experience with Emily’s Place has been exceptional, and our admiration of the work they do has only grown. We encourage others to familiarise themselves with Emily’s Place and support their important mission however they can, as well as to look for other opportunities they can help to ‘create a better world’ in their own communities.”
Through August 2019, IDIS, the South Korean video surveillance solutions manufacturer will highlight the applicability of its end-to-end Total Solution to the spectrum of challenges facing campus safety and security professionals in the Americas. Campus Safety Conference IDIS America, the regional headquarters for South Korea’s in-country manufacturer of surveillance technology, kicks off several weeks of focus on the unique challenges and concerns related to campus security in the Americas. Beginning with an appearance at the 2019 Campus Safety conference in Dallas and continuing through August with outreach focusing on the unique suitability of the high-performing, cost-effective IDIS Total Solution to meet the widely varying (and, at times, highly specific) needs of campuses, large and small, in the Americas. “There’s no question there has never been a greater time of challenge or urgency when it comes to campus safety and the protection of our nation’s students, faculty, staff and others,” notes Keith Drummond, Senior Director at IDIS America. “You only have to open a newspaper—or even just talk with the students in your life—to know that challenges to campus safety and security run the gamut from traditionally smaller, more familiar concerns like fights, contraband, and unauthorised movement, to worries about lethal threats like active shooters.“ IDIS Total Solution IDIS promise to meet any surveillance need, of any size or complexity with high performing technology" Keith further states, “When you throw in the inherent complication of maintaining full situational awareness in a dynamic campus and the requirements most schools have to build and maintain security infrastructure—often funded with limited taxpayer, grants, or donor dollars—in the most fiscally responsible way possible, campus safety and security professionals must balance a great deal as part of keeping their charge—and no two campuses are ever alike. That’s where we believe IDIS and it’s adaptable, scalable, and complete end-to-end total solution for both analog and IP surveillance makes the difference.” Drummond also points to the IDIS promise to “meet any surveillance need, of any size or complexity” with high performing technology and a low total cost of ownership as key to the company’s unique value proposition for American campuses. The company’s flagship DirectIP range of IP solutions, award-winning for its true plug and play ease of installation and use, next-generation features, high degree of interoperability, forward- and backward-compatibility guarantees, and long (often longest) industry warranties—all with a cost-free, full featured VMS included and total lack of recurring licensing fees. DirectCX analog solution This serves as the base of the company’s solution for campuses, with complementary product lines (including the full product line in the company’s DirectCX analog solution, easily integrated with existing systems or seamlessly incorporated as part of a mixed analog/IP requirement) and sub-ranges (including the IDIS Compact Solution of IP cameras designed to deliver high performance in with lower-profile form factors and a wider variety of price points). “IDIS’s technology makes it possible for those responsible for the design and deployment of campus security solutions to avoid traditional (and frustrating) tradeoffs between quality and performance and cost-effectiveness,” adds Andrew Myung, President of IDIS America. IDIS Compact Solution Our technology is designed and developed through our market-responsive R&D process" “Our technology is designed and developed through our market-responsive R&D process, manufactured in our secure, flexible, and efficient Smart Factory (cited in peer reviewed research and honoured with a Presidential Citation for innovation), and delivered with our industry leading warranties and compatibility guarantees. This allows us to deliver next generation technology, packed with innovative, award-winning features, benefits, and support with a proven low total cost of ownership, without recurring licensing fees.” “That unique mix of factors and advantages is huge for campuses that are both performance- AND cost-conscious, and for whom showing maximum attentiveness to the core mission of keeping students and campus communities safe, as well as strong financial stewardship of taxpayer, grant, and donor dollars is essential.” IDIS cameras Drummond and Myung note, that ultimately, it’s the ability of IDIS cameras, recorders, software to truly meet any surveillance need, no matter the size or complexity of the requirement, that makes the case. That’s why the company’s activities over the next several weeks will include interviews, topical and industry education social media posts and videos, and demonstrations and appearances, beginning with an appearance at the 2019 Campus Safety conference in Dallas, where visitors can discuss specific challenges and requirements with the IDIS team and go hands on with IDIS technology. The IDIS team will also be available for phone, the web, and in person (including demonstrations at the IDIS America demonstration centre, near Dallas) consultations regarding general and specific campus safety challenges.

As part of the global surveillance powerhouse’s year-long 20th anniversary celebration, IDIS, South Korea’s largest security manufacturer, announces the “IDIS Ultimate Warranty” at the IFSEC International security show. In a landscape with average industry warranties ranging from three to five years, the new IDIS Ultimate Warranty extends the company’s standard warranties for recorders from three to five years, while adding additional extensions of the manufacturer’s guarantees for its latest-generation technologies by two years, bringing the warranty for IDIS’s H.265 network video recorders (NVRs) and multi-format HD-TVI IDIS DirectCX TVRs to an unprecedented seven years. (IDIS cameras eligible for the two-year extension will see their guarantees extend to five years.) IDIS Ultimate Warranty The IDIS Ultimate Warranty gives IDIS integrators and installers a clear competitive advantage and delivers increased peace of mind with a lower cost of ownership to end users. The IDIS Ultimate Warranty is also particularly competitive when compared to PC-based solutions that typically handle up to 64 channels, which have a maximum warranty of three years, forcing end users to purchase additional warranty long before the end of the lifecycle of their surveillance solution. A recent survey conducted by IFSEC Global showed most organisations look to upgrade surveillance systems after five to seven years. With the IDIS Ultimate Warranty, end users can be confident that their IDIS solution will be supported for its entire life cycle, a demonstration of IDIS’s confidence in its industry-leading quality and reliability. Quality and reliability Andrew Myung, President of IDIS America, noted “IDIS has a long reputation for bringing new and innovative products to market. Each time we do, we guarantee that each element has been designed and manufactured in-house by IDIS with quality and reliability at the forefront. We’re proud to still have IDIS DVRs in operation after more than 13 years and that they have required little to no maintenance. It’s because of our confidence in this quality and reliability that the IDIS Ultimate Warranty is a natural step. It was not a difficult choice to extend guarantees for our recorders to as many as seven years as our confidence in our products and track record as a manufacturer fully support such a move.” The IDIS Ultimate Warranty will apply to products shipped globally from July 2017 and is expected to be fully available on all covered products in the Americas by early fall.

The installations feature customised combinations of latest generation technology from IDIS IDIS and GardaWorld announced the successful installation rollout of IDIS video surveillance technology across multiple sites in the United States and Canada. The existing installations include more than 800 IDIS cameras and recorders, a number that will continue to grow with ongoing and planned installations in 2017. IDIS DirectCX analogue and DirectIP technology The international installations feature customised combinations of latest generation technology from IDIS, including analogue and IP networked cameras and recorders and powerful IDIS video management software (VMS), scaled and customised across 250+ sites, including those in large, small, urban, and rural environments, both upgrades and new installations. More than 800 IDIS cameras, recorders, and the establishment of two major central monitoring facilities reflect a seamless integration of IDIS DirectCX analogue and DirectIP technology, and the powerful agility of IDIS’s most powerful and flexible VMS, IDIS Solution Suite. Both the larger solution and individual site installations were customised to meet specific requirements for each site, while IDIS’s signature ease of installation and use minimised installation time, headaches, and effectively eliminated downtime for the 24/7 security solutions provider. Agile and flexible surveillance solution “The safety and security of both our customers’ assets and the employees in our GardaWorld family is our paramount concern” “GardaWorld’s reputation as a global leader in the security space preceded it and it has been our honour to partner with them to maximise safety and security through next-generation surveillance,” said Andrew Myung, President of IDIS America. “IDIS has made our mark over 20 years in the surveillance industry providing a complete range of agile, flexible, single-sourced surveillance solutions, able to meet any need of any size.” “Our work with GardaWorld—seamlessly incorporating DirectCX and DirectIP offerings, as needed to meet the requirements of multiple sites of differing size, while still delivering comprehensive situational awareness and an optimised surveillance posture to our client—is a true example of this differentiator. We are proud of what we have done with GardaWorld so far and look forward to our future work with this industry leader.” Asset management and employee safety Noted Guy Côté, Vice President and Chief Security Officer for GardaWorld, “GardaWorld is a known global leader in security, cash logistics, and cash management, with a reputation for excellence and customer satisfaction in all we do. The safety and security of both our customers’ assets and the employees in our GardaWorld family is our paramount concern. So, it is no exaggeration to say that our standards are high when it comes to the security solutions we, in turn, deploy to secure our own operations.”“IDIS meets our high standards and more with a surveillance offering that is as committed to our security requirements as we are. IDIS technology delivers powerful features and capabilities in a variety of ways that meet needs as diverse as our differing locations and custom requirements. Whether analogue or IP networked solutions, new installations or upgrades, or at urban or remote sites, IDIS solutions have proven flexible, scalable, and customisable to deliver the appropriate technology in the ideal way for each requirement. We are pleased with the partnership we have created with IDIS over the past year and look forward to the continued benefit we’ll receive from current and planned installations of IDIS technology.”
IDIS donated a next-generation video surveillance solution to the Cozby Library and Community Commons IDIS announced the donation and installation of a comprehensive video surveillance solution for the City of Coppell, Texas—hometown of the IDIS America regional headquarters—in support of the city’s soon-to-open new library, the Cozby Library and Community Commons. The IDIS donation comprised more than 15 cameras—including two 5MP Super Fisheye Cameras featuring the award-winning IDIS Smart UX Controls—an IDIS 6232-PS-S network video recorder (NVR), and the IDIS Centre and IDIS Mobile video management software (VMS) solutions. Next-gen video surveillance solution Director of Library Services for the City of Coppell, Vicki Chiavetta, is thrilled with the donation from IDIS and said, “Library security is essential to keeping our patrons and staff safe while at the library, and IDIS’s donation of a next-generation video surveillance solution to the Cozby Library and Community Commons was a generous show of neighbourly engagement and support for which we are very grateful. City libraries are particularly special places since they provide gathering spaces for children, families, students, and community organisations, and serve as a centre of learning and contemplation for all who enter. Everyone who comes to the Cozby Library will have more peace of mind thanks to IDIS’s generous donation.” Global social responsibility initiative The donation was made as part of IDIS’s established global social responsibility initiative, which seeks ways to engage with and give back to local communities. The donation was also made with the support of KOTRA Dallas, the regional branch of South Korea’s official trade promotion agency, which is dedicated to building stronger ties between Korean manufacturers and the global marketplace. "We are pleased to have the opportunity to support thefamilies of Coppell and thenew city library with thedonation of an IDIS video surveillance solution" IDIS’s donation, made via the Cozby Library and Community Commons in support of the safety and security of both employees and patrons of the new city library, will be of long-term value to the library as the donated technology comes with standard IDIS DirectIP low total cost of ownership benefits, including a lack of licensing or maintenance fees, no-cost upgrades, and guaranteed backwards compatibility with future IDIS technology. “When IDIS selected Coppell as the location of the regional headquarters for IDIS America, we did so for many reasons, including the storied quality of the community and people of the city,” said Andrew Myung, President of IDIS America. “As our own ties to the community have grown, we have sought the chance to ‘give back’ to a city that has welcomed us with open arms. We are pleased to have the opportunity to support the families of Coppell and the new city library with the donation of an IDIS video surveillance solution, in partnership with integrator Knight Security, knowing we are doing all we can to ensure the safety and security of our shared community.” Secure environment for patrons Noted Albert Gauthier, Chief Information Officer for the City of Coppell, “Ensuring that every Coppell resident and visitor has a safe and secure experience at the library is a priority for all of us working for the City of Coppell. We are grateful to be able to use the latest in video surveillance technology in support of ensuring that all who work within and visit our new city library are able to do so in the most secure and safe environment possible. Should the opportunity arise again, we look forward to working with IDIS again.” Coppell’s new library, located at 177 N. Heartz Road, will hold a grand opening ceremony on Saturday, November 19. Following a 9:00am ribbon cutting, the library will open its doors to the public and host a variety of family friendly activities throughout the day, including performances, a petting zoo, arts and crafts, face painting, and chances for families to meet local police and fire department members.
