We Have Your Back!
Moving in step with our business and technology partners to ensure success.
In an uncertain world, you can be totally confident Hanwha Techwin is continually looking at ways to help system integrators and our distribution partners succeed.
This is why, for example, we have enhanced our STEP programme. This has always offered a wide range of benefits which help system integrators increase their share of the video surveillance market, including discounted products, project support, demonstration equipment, as well as marketing and priority technical support.
In our ‘new normal’ world, where we are determined more than ever to help our system integrator partners successfully compete for new business, the updated STEP offers even higher product price discounts for those who participate in the programme. It is also designed to give encouragement and support for system integrators who are striving to be upgraded to a higher STEP status level.
Hanwha Techwin’s position as global leader in video surveillance has been recently reaffirmed with the announcement that Wisenet7, the company’s next-generation proprietary camera chipset, has achieved UL Cybersecurity Assurance Program (UL CAP) certification.
System integrators can therefore confidently recommend the latest generation of Wisenet cameras to their clients and have peace of mind in knowing their end-user client’s confidential data will be kept safe from hackers.
UL CAP is a certification programme run by UL, a company which has been a global leader in safety science for over 100 years. The programme assesses potential cybersecurity issues and the level of risk from hackers in respect of network-connectable hardware devices and software.
Hanwha Techwin is among only a handful of manufacturers within the video surveillance industry that have so far achieved the UL CAP certification for their products and is the only one within Korea to have done so!
With cyber security being a crucial issue for the video surveillance industry, Hanwha Techwin can also claim to be one of the first camera manufacturers to be issued with the UK Government’s Surveillance Camera Commissioner’s ‘Secure by Default’ certification mark. This signifies that Wisenet X cameras equipped with the Wisenet7 chipset comply with the ‘Secure by Default’ standard, the aim of which is to ensure video surveillance products are cyber and network secure ‘out-of-box’.
Deep Learning AI technology
We are seeking every opportunity to capitalise on emerging technologies and by doing so, create new sales opportunities for our business partners.
In addition to a product roadmap which will see a continuing strengthening of our product range, we are working closely with our hand-picked technology partners to develop new specialist video analytics applications which will allow end-users to achieve even greater value from their camera systems.
We are also embracing Deep Learning AI technology which will allow us to offer futureproof video security solutions that deliver a level of functionality which would have been unimaginable just a few years ago.
Opportunities to make life safer in a COVID-19 affected world
The video surveillance industry has not been slow in developing solutions to assist businesses to create a safe environment for its employees, customers, contractors and visitors. Hanwha Techwin has led the market in offering social distancing related solutions which are affordable, as well as effective, and these include face mask detection, occupancy monitoring and AI deep learning-based social distance measuring applications.
Watch this space: In recent week, ‘fever screening’ solutions devised by some manufacturers have attracted negative publicity. This is because they have been oversold in terms of what they are capable of delivering, and as a result, they have come close to bringing our industry into disrepute.
We may not be the first to introduce a temperature detection solution, but when we launch our AI Body Temperature Detection camera later this year, you can be assured that it will be highly accurate and fit for purpose.
We are continuing to expand our A&E, pre-sales and business development teams. We are determined to employ people of the highest calibre who share our passion for building partnerships with system integrators and distribution partners. In doing so, we will bring our formidable product range to an even wider audience and create new sales opportunities for our partners.
Most importantly, you can be 100% certain that we will always strive to excel in everything we do and we will do so with integrity.
