VIVOTEK INC., established in Taiwan in 2000, has quickly grown into a prestigious leading manufacturer in the network video surveillance industry. In 2006, VIVOTEK (TAIEX: 3454) was listed on the Taiwan Stock Exchange. VIVOTEK spun off its SoC division into a wholly-owned subsidiary in 2007, namely VATICS, which focuses on multimedia SoC development and sales. To keep pace with rapid sales growth, it established a US subsidiary in California in 2008 to offer sales, support and service.
VIVOTEK's philosophy consists of Integrity, Care, and Innovation. It places high importance on maintaining a trustworthy and close relationship with customers, partners, and employees, and delivering cutting-edge products and solutions to the marketplaces.
VIVOTEK's vision is to become a total solution provider in the IP surveillance industry. Besides reinforcing its leading position in Taiwan, VIVOTEK will spare no effort in strengthening its international presence, so as to deliver reliable, practical, and state-of-the-art IP surveillance solutions to the global market.
VIVOTEK's core competence lies in its strong R&D capability. Throughout the years, its R&D strength has been demonstrated by the development of video codec technology, networking protocol, and multimedia SoC, building up solid knowledge and experiences in developing reliable products in a challenging network environment.
VIVOTEK has successfully established itself as an own-brand manufacturer by providing self-developed products under the VIVOTEK brand. VIVOTEK's own-brand business has been growing rapidly, and the outstanding sales performance is mainly attributed to the efforts of its partners. In the future, VIVOTEK will focus more on the own-brand business so as to better serve customer needs with more customized solutions.
VIVOTEK has more than 120 authorized distributors in more than 70 countries. Through the distribution networks worldwide, a broad array of its products are successfully deployed by security dealers, telecoms and system integrators for a variety of applications. To date, over a million network cameras and video servers were marketed worldwide.
Based on VIVOTEK SIA (Software Integration Alliance) program, it strategically cooperates with many professional software development partners to offer a total solution for customers' various needs. The SIA Program provides VIVOTEK's partners with technical information and marketing strategies, with the aim to increase market share and business opportunities for both VIVOTEK and its partners.
VIVOTEK offers a comprehensive product lineup, including network cameras, video servers, video receivers, NVR, and central management software. In 2005 VIVOTEK launched the first self-developed multimedia SoC (VVTK-1000), and used it in its 7000-series surveillance products. For years to come, VIVOTEK will develop products featuring more advanced functions to broaden our product portfolio from entry level to high end. VIVOTEK will also continue to offer more cost-effective and higher value-added solutions for our customers.
