Hikvision innovative machine vision

Quality from experience


It is long ago that 'made in China' was the equivalent to 'low-end' or 'cheap'. Nowadays, all world dominating electronics brand produce in the land of the red dragon. This long history of electronics production, experience and the continuous growth of the Chinese economy and education level, now pays-off in terms of China's capability to develop and produce top notch products, completely from China design and origin. Combine this with a relentless hunger for improvement, a constantly improved logistics and infrastructure model, high production efficiency and huge production quantities, and you will find Chinese products at the highest standards whilst still at an affordable price level. This is what will make China the number-one economy in the years to come. And it will be not for long that brands like Huawei, Baidu, Alibaba and Hikvision will influence, or even set worlds technology standards.
