WE MOVE with trust

 

We appreciate you do not measure products and solutions just by their features and this why Hanwha Techwin believes in taking responsibility for the solutions developed with our technology partners. It is also the reason why our WE MOVE with trust’ message, which embraces our distribution and solution partners, cyber security, quality & service and our extended 5 year warranty, continues to be the central theme at the heart of our promotional activities.

The success of our strategy to work in close partnership with specialist application developers in order to deliver new, innovative solutions in integration with our high performance Wisenet open platform cameras, has been recently further justified by an award recently won by our technology partner, A.I.Tech.

 

for website (Benchmark)Award

A.I Tech’s video analytics technology, which is utilised by our Wisenet Biometrics and Retail solutions, was selected as the winner of the Business Intelligence category in the Benchmark Innovation Awards 2018.

The awards, which are run by Benchmark Magazine, the monthly publication which is widely regarded as the “Which” magazine for the electronic security industry, are designed to recognise and reward innovative thinking and the delivery of benefits through advanced security solutions.

 

Smart Solutions

You may be assured that Hanwha Techwin will sustain its efforts to seek out opportunities to introduce new, innovative solutions which deliver real-world practical benefits and ensure our customers will achieve maximum value from our feature rich, open platform Wisenet cameras. These will complement existing Wisenet solutions which include:

GDPR

At Hanwha Techwin, we believe it is important for end-users, system integrators and manufacturers to work closely together to negate the risk of data misuse. In this respect, we have placed maximum importance on providing privacy-friendly products which assist end-users to comply with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Although not wishing to be alarmist, a serious violation of GDPR could be subject to a fine of up to 4% of a company’s annual revenue or EUR 20 million, whichever is higher. In addition, non-compliance with GDPR violation could result in a class action or civil law suits against individuals. With this in mind, Hanwha Techwin has published a White Paper which sets out the impact on video surveillance systems of the new GDPR which came into force in May 2018.

I would encourage you to download the White Paper which addresses in detail the responsibilities of those who are in control of video surveillance systems. It also explains what steps Hanwha Techwin has taken to ensure the features and functions of its Wisenet cameras, recording devices and video management software (VMS), are able to assist operators in complying with GDPR.

Alternatively, you may prefer to view an Executive Summary which highlights the key aspects of the White Paper.

 

2018 and beyond

With your highly valued support, Hanwha Techwin Europe is enjoying a record breaking year. The quantity of products shipped each month has never been higher. However, we will never be complacent and you can be assured that our team will continue to strive to excel in everything we do in order to achieve total customer satisfaction.
