A top Chinese security official praised a multimedia semiconductor and Internet protocol-based surveillance solution provider for helping develop a video image integration and sharing standard that is to be used by security agencies.
Jianzhu Meng, China’s state councilor and minister of public security, met with John Deng, the chairman and CEO of Vimicro International Corp., a multimedia semiconductor and Internet protocol-based surveillance solution provider, in Beijing on May 24, 2012.
At the meeting Meng praised Vimicro for its role in the development of the surveillance video and audio coding (SVAC) standard as a required core industry standard in China, and the impact the SVAC standard is having in strengthening China’s law enforcement.
Earlier in 2012, the Chinese Ministry of Public Security issued a “Task Mandate for All Public Security Agencies Regarding Video Image Integration and Sharing,” and has officially adopted Vimicro’s SVAC standard as a core industry standard in China.
Deng responded to Meng’s praise by saying Vimicro is “pleased that SVAC has been selected as a core required technology standard by the Ministry of Public Security.”
“We firmly believe that SVAC will significantly advance the domestic surveillance market and that the use of SVAC-based chips and related products will become commonplace in China,” Deng said. “We look forward to SVAC chips and products also becoming a significant growth driver for Vimicro as we further develop the technology,” he added.
