2020: A year filled with achievement

21 Dec 2020

The year 2020 saw Hanwha Techwin proudly consolidate its position as a market-leading manufacturer.

As well as responding quickly to the need for businesses to operate safely by developing a suite of COVID-19 solutions, we are also very proud to have introduced the industry’s first super-high-resolution 8K camera and launched Wisenet7, our most powerful chipset to date, which is equipped with industry-leading cyber security functionality.

We continued to provide system integrators and our business partners with a competitive edge by introducing a constant stream of other new exciting products and solutions and along the way, we picked up more than a few accolades and awards.

 

Looking forward to another twelve months of market-leading innovations

You can be assured that Hanwha Techwin will remain determined to pursue every opportunity to capitalise on emerging technologies. In addition to a product roadmap which will see a continuing strengthening of our product range, we will also be working closely with hand-picked technology partners to develop new specialist applications which will allow end-users to achieve even greater value from their video surveillance systems.
