We are proud to showcase Taiwan’s finest at one of the United States’ most prestigious security tradeshows and look forward to having participants experience the future of security,” said TAITRA Executive Director Simon Lai.
These Taiwanese ICT companies, all winners of the Taiwan Excellence Awards, generated a lot of excitement and buzz with the unveiling of their new products at the conference.
1. EverFocus Electronics Corp.
EverFocus demonstrated its engineering and research prowess as Regional Technical Sales Manager Marques Phillips unveiled details of the company’s XFleet Management Platform which he described as not only transforming the IoV experience, but the future of vehicle fleet management. The new solution allows users to easily track, monitor and manage any type of fleet vehicles on a Web browser anywhere and anytime. With Xfleet, users can not only reduce overall costs by effectively utilizing resources such as vehicles, fuel, and manpower, but also improve management efficiency and business performance by keeping and analyzing the historical records of the vehicle data as needed.
GeoVision showed off the VR 360, the world’s first Virtual Reality camera that can provide a 720° view. President David Huang said it’s the only camera with two Fisheye lenses to provide a floor to ceiling, 720° view with no blind spots. It’s ideal for security environments such as airports, train stations, city streets, harbors and highways. The camera uses advanced computer vision technology to simulate a three-dimensional, highly realistic, and practical 3D space. It’s water-proof, vandal-proof and dust resistant, making it ideal for outdoors. It also boasts IR Night Mode for clear images even in dark environments.
Huang also demonstrated new facial recognition IP dome camera with cutting-edge AI. It can recognize human faces in 1.5 seconds, making possible identification of authorized versus unauthorized personnel, the creation of blacklists for restricted personnel, and VIP lists to improve relationship management.
PLANET explained how the Intuitive Touch LCD Switch makes it possible to easily manage powered devices in real time, greatly enhancing network management efficiency. Tammy Huang, Sales Manager, noted that it’s the unique touch LCD that makes such management possible. In addition to the touch LCD interface, the solution features L2+ switching, intelligent PoE management and an ONVIF support function. An Industrial flat-type touch LCD switch model is also offered, making possible management of large-scale networks.
With the theme “Security within Security,” Shengfu Cheng, Director of Marketing and Product Development, demonstrated the first cybersecurity enhanced network cameras in the IP surveillance industry. The three new cameras are armed with Trend Micro’s anti-intrusion software, allowing them to automatically detect and prevent credential attacks and block suspicious events. They also feature VIVOTEK’s Smart Stream II and H.265 technology, allowing users to benefit from reduced bandwidth and data storage demands by up to 90% more than systems employing H.264. Add to that a new generation of night visibility technology, Supreme Night Visibility II (SNV II) which allows them to reproduce high-quality color images, even in very low-light conditions.
In the security industry, the United States is the largest buyer of electronic security products and spent $12.3 billion on imports in the field in 2016. And Taiwan constitutes North America’s 4th largest trade partner in the electronic security field, with an import value that was close to $1 billion in 2016.
Throughout ISC West 2018, Taiwan exhibitors will present their latest innovations. In pursuit of Asia’s Silicon Valley vision of propelling Taiwan to the international forefront of technology, Taiwanese companies continue their pursuit of excellence and innovation.
