HTS, a subsidiary of China Security and Surveillance Technology
(CSST), offers video surveillance solutions at affordable prices.
With growth in 2009, the company is expecting 40-percent sales
growth for 2010. HTS acts as an OEM and ODM, and it also has
its own brands - Viewse and HTS. Viewse is sold overseas, while HTS focuses on the
domestic Chinese market.
Airport, transportation, residential and education segments are major applications for
HTS. About 50 percent of the company's overall revenue comes from the U.S., India, Brazil,
Australia, Canada, Italy, Germany, the United Arab Emirates and Singapore.
STRATEGIES AND CORE COMPETENCE
CCD and CMOS cameras are the company's core technology. "HTS has strong R&D to
keep up with the latest technology," said Candy Lee, Manager of International Business
Division. "We offer reliable IR cameras that have low image noise."
Under the umbrella of CSST, HTS has R&D support from Japan, the U.S. and South
Korea. "In China, we have our own security school and our R&D team also partners with
several well-known universities in China," Lee said.
"We want to offer value-added products. China offers us the advantage of low labor and
production costs, enabling us to offer affordable products with good quality and services,"
Lee said. The company will offer 3-G network cameras with plug-and-play functionality. "We hope
to move from the mid- to lower-end to the mid- to high-end markets," Lee said.
