Taiwan shines as a global powerhouse for security products and solutions

Taiwan shines as a global powerhouse for security products and solutions
From IP cameras and NVRs to key components, Made-in-Taiwan security products and solutions have gained the trust and business of local and overseas businesses alike.
Over the decades Taiwan has established itself as a manufacturing powerhouse for IT products and solutions. These include those for physical security. From IP cameras and NVRs to key components, Made-in-Taiwan security equipment and devices have gained the trust and business of local and overseas businesses alike. This article looks at some of the best-of-breed Taiwan security offerings on display at Secutech Taiwan, held Apr. 24-26.
 

Deeplet

 
A major exhibitor at this year’s show, Deeplet displayed a range of cutting-edge IP cameras and NVRs, all powered by systems-on-chips (SoCs) from Taiwan-based Novatek. Among Deeplet NVRs, one stands out: The 8MP NVR which supports a maximum of 64 channels, comes with AI detect and trigger alert functions and is equipped with 6 SATA HDDs, with up to 12TB capacity for each HDD.
 
“This is Taiwan’s first 64-channel NVR, with one processor supporting the playback of 64 channels simultaneously. You can walk around the show floor and I can say you won’t find any NVR that supports 64 channels,” said Vicky Jung, Account Manager at Deeplet. “This product comes after our extensive E&D effort.”
 
Aside from NVRs, Deeplet also exhibited their IP cameras ranging from 2MP to 5MP; an 8MP model will come out soon. All cameras come with basic analytics functions such as motion detection and line crossing and can be boosted with advanced AI such as intrusion and loitering on customer demand.
 
Indeed, amid fierce competition in the market, Deeplet stand s out with their highly customizable video security solutions which are seen not only in Taiwan but also in overseas projects in factory, education and government settings. “We’re NDAA-compliant and can be used even in US government projects. Indeed, our solutions have a strong presence in the North America market,” Jung said.
 

Augentix and OGA

 
Speaking of SoCs, this is where Augentix excels in. The Hsinchu, Taiwan-based company founded in 2014 engineers integrated circuit designs specializing in cutting-edge multimedia signal processing and high-definition turnkey solutions.
 
“Our chips are found in various Taiwan- and US-branded cameras for mostly smart home applications. These cameras include baby cams and pet cams. Many people now have pets in their homes. Our smart solution can monitor pets and issue alerts should something happen, giving users peace of mind while they are away,” said Mila Peng, Business Development Associate at Augentix.
 
“For now, we target mostly consumer and entry-level applications. We may consider commercial video surveillance applications in the future,” she added.
 
One of Augentix’s camera partners is Taiwan-based Sunmore, who markets their products under the OGA brand and co-exhibited with Augentix at Secutech.
 
“We are MIT and have Augentix inside. We attach a great importance to info-security,” said Eddie Tu, Senior Manager with Sunmore. “We target mostly small- to mid-sized markets such as district offices, schools and certain gated communities. Indeed, we are not in the position to compete with the leading brands, so we provide high cost-performance, highly customized and highly value-added solutions for the markets mentioned above.”
 

COP

 
Besides video surveillance and access control, networking equipment plays a key role in security as well. In this regard, COP Security Systems exhibited their Ethernet-over-coaxial transceivers enabling users to use IP cameras in conjunction with their existing coaxial infrastructure.
 
“Needless to say, IP cams are now popular. But for many of our clients, replacing their coaxial infrastructure with IP is costly. So for those who want to keep their coax and connect IP cams and NVRs on both ends, this is for them. This solution has been our main focus for the past five years,” said Bruce Chang, Product Manager at COP.
 
The transceiver can be useful for a variety of user organizations, with Chang citing factories as an example.
 
“These users have had coax from the very beginning. But with analog cameras becoming almost extinct, they are forced to switch to IP cams. This is ok for them, except for the rip-and-replace effort, which is a costly proposition. Plus, most of them still have coaxial infrastructure that’s good and functional; getting rid of them would be a pity and waste. This is where our solution can come in handy,” Chang said.
 
COP also has PoE extenders to lengthen coverage distance between IP devices and the power source. Finally, the company has an IR illuminator for highway and wide area usage, effectively boosting illumination range up to 450 meters. “The product can not only be seen on Taiwan highways, but also in overseas projects, for example Changi Airport in Singapore,” Chang noted.
