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.
IDIS will celebrate five years at ISC West International Security Exhibition in Las Vegas, April 10-12th, with a comprehensive showcase of the South Korean manufacturer’s IDIS Total Surveillance Solution in booth #18059. Highlights of the company’s fifth anniversary with ISC West include areas of special emphasis on cybersecurity, deep learning analytics and facial recognition, and solutions for the retail and banking sectors; and a review of IDIS’s latest technology releases. Founded in 1997 by experts in computer science and artificial intelligence, IDIS has grown to become the largest manufacturer of video surveillance technology within South Korea and a leader in industry innovation, anchored by the company’s flagship DirectIP offering—a true plug-and-play solution that eliminates the complexity of installing and operating networked surveillance systems, and extending through to the modular, feature-rich IDIS Solution Suite software and IDIS latest Deep Learning Engine-powered analytics. Innovations and solutions at ISC West Some of the specific innovations that IDIS will highlight in booth #18059 at ISC West this year are: The latest in IDIS cybersecurity innovation, including edge encryption and IDIS Chained Fingerprint, the company’s proprietary integrity check which chains adjacent images with stored digital fingerprints, allowing for the detection of possible tampering or alteration The newest IDIS Deep Learning Analytics offerings—powered by the IDIS Deep Learning Engine—including IDIS DV-2116 IDLA-ready hardware (with an embedded NVDIA GTZ1060 GPU chipset), and the introduction of IDIS Intelligent Search, allowing tracking by colour, object, and number; and new IDIS face tracking technology Latest-generation iterations of IDIS’s core surveillance offerings, including the DirectIP 12MP Panomorph and new 5MP Compact Fisheye cameras—utilising IDIS’s industry-leading dual-sided dewarping technology—delivering IDIS’s celebrated Fisheye technology in all the ways our users need them; and the official debut of the full IDIS Compact Solution and upgraded IDIS HD-TVI line ups Exhibiting for the fifth time We look forward to returning to the show for the fifth time to highlight the powerful innovation and market-responsive technology" IDIS America President Andrew Myung remarked, “The IDIS partnership with ISC West has been a fruitful one from the beginning. We chose ISC West to launch the IDIS brand in the Americas in 2015 and launched a year-long Americas-wide celebration of our Two Decades of Innovation on the ISC West floor in 2017 to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. “We look forward to returning to the show for the fifth time since IDIS America’s successful debut to highlight the kinds of powerful innovation and market-responsive technology that are IDIS’ signature and to engage in the kinds of insightful conversations about the state and future of our industry that are ISC West’s signature in booth #18059." Debut of ‘Create a Better World’ campaign IDIS will also debut the IDIS ‘Create a Better World’ campaign on the show floor this year. As described on the company’s official campaign page, “Creating a Better World is all about the kindness and generosity ‘caught on camera’ every day (so easy to overlook in these stressful times), and the many ways we all can do our part to create a kinder, warmer, better world.” The campaign will involve public participation and a contest, and the kick off will offer visitors to the booth the chance to win gift cards and a Smart Home Starter Pack.

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.
