IDIS video surveillance technology features strongly in the 2019 Safety & Health Excellence Awards, with its high-performance solutions shortlisted in two popular categories.
The hotly-contested awards, organised by Western Business Exhibitions and incorporating the British Safety Industry Federation Awards, received more than 200 entries in ten categories.
IDIS has been shortlisted for both ‘Innovation of the Year for Security’ and ‘Best Health & Safety Project’, which are among the most competitive awards.
The ‘Best Health & Safety Project’ category, which IDIS entered alongside its systems integration partner ISD Tech, recognises the undertaking which has delivered the most significant improvements to the health, safety or wellbeing of people and/or premises.
The joint nomination between IDIS and ISD Tech highlighted their successful work to deliver an industry-best video surveillance solution at child and adolescent mental healthcare facilities run by Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust.
Last year Southern Health embarked on one of the biggest video upgrades ever undertaken in the NHS and its security department identified IDIS technology as the best for the project following a demanding proof-of-concept comparison.
The ‘Innovation of the Year for Security’ category recognises products that have been developed to improve security standards across a wide range of technologies, from perimeter protection to cybersecurity. IDIS’ strong performance in this category is spearheaded by its 12MP Super Fisheye Camera which, since its launch 18 months ago, has become its best-selling model.
The camera has been developed with the needs of both installers and end-users in mind and for everyone it delivers improved system performance and security.
For the installer, the Super Fisheye camera gives a better choice for wide area protection applications, including lobbies, auditoriums, corridors, open rooms and storage areas and helps their customers to achieve more within their budgets.
For the end-user, the IDIS Super Fisheye delivers lower equipment costs (it can typically replace three or four fixed cameras), lower installation fees, a reduced maintenance burden and affordable operation (it records the full scene without the need for an operator 24/7) with intuitive and smooth de-warping in both live view and playback.
“We are delighted that our 12MP Super Fisheye has performed so strongly in these competitive awards,” says James Min, Managing Director, IDIS Europe.
“As a growing number of projects across the region and globally is now proving, this camera allows much more to be done within all budgets. It gives both integrators and end-users a whole new level of cost and performance benefits.”
IDIS is Korea’s largest in-country video surveillance manufacturer and, since opening its European headquarters in 2013, it has established a reputation as a leading one-stop video solutions supplier and worked hard to develop sustainable partnerships with end users, integrators and distributors.
