Bumper profits for Hikvision again as it provides more details on Spring installer roadshows

Hikvision’s global revenues have grown by 26.69% to US$4.67bn, the company’s preliminary earnings results for 2016 have revealed.

At $998m, operating profit posted a growth rate of 24.84%, while total profit recorded a growth rate of 23.56% to $1.2bn.

The company has announced the establishment of the Hikvision R&D Center and Research Institute in Montreal, Canada, signalling heavy investment in research and development. Last year it opened a new showroom and training suite for engineers and installers.

Last year, Hikvision took a major step towards diversification beyond video surveillance after acquiring intrusion detection specialist Pyronix in May 2016. The Chinese CCTV giant also opened new offices in Netherlands, Russia, South Korea and Khazakstan, and expanded existing offices in the UK, Middle East and US.


Hikvision has also confirmed further details about its upcoming Spring 2017 Roadshow, which is aimed at installers/integrators with the broad theme: “Innovating technology, partnering for success”.

The roadshow, which takes place between 7-23 March in five locations across the UK, will focus on 4K and H.265+ surveillance cameras and recorders, the Hikvision 24MP PanoVu, thermal imaging solutions, and Number Plate Recognition technology.

Hands-on demonstrations, presentations and Q&A’s from Hikvision’s leading experts will cover the following:

  • Corporate update from Hikvision UK & Ireland – The latest information and tools available from Hikvision, which includes educational courses, the Hikvision Views App, and how to make the transition from HiDDNS to Hik-Connect
  • The benefits of IP 3.0, 4K and H.265+ – How to successfully migrate to IP 3.0 and how 4K pictures needn’t take up a large amount of storage space with the new innovative H.265+ codec
  • Maximising Analogue networks with Turbo 4.0 – How Turbo 4.0 can make use of current Analogue infrastructures and provide IP resolution pictures over standard Coax cable.
  • New technology from Hikvision for 2017 – The latest technology from Hikvision, including the new PanoVu camera with 180 degree vertical and horizontal viewing capability at 24MP, the latest Thermal Imaging range, License Plate Recognition (ANPR), and Explosion Proof Technology built to IP68 standards

“As the world’s leading CCTV manufacturer we are at the forefront of innovation,” says Andy Keeley, marketing manager for Hikvision UK and Ireland.

“Our aim is to provide installers and systems integrators with the information and training of Hikvision products they need to implement tailored video surveillance solutions for their clients.”

Some of HIkvision’s key partners will also attend the Roadshow. Seagate will demonstrate its latest HDD technology, Pyronix will outline its advances in intrusion detection tech and Wavestore will show how its flexible video management software integrates with Hikvision cameras.

All roadshow events are free of charge for installers and systems integrators and the first 100 people who attend at each venue that have pre-registered for the show will receive a free Hikvision 2MP Turret camera with inbuilt DarkFighter ultra-low light technology.
