Vivotek Talks About Taiwan, China, Bans, AI And Business Development

By Charles Rollet, Published May 10, 2019, 07:59am EDT

Vivotek, Taiwan's biggest manufacturer by revenue, did not have a booth at Taiwan's Secutech 2019 (which we are covering). However, marketing/communications execs Shengfu Cheng and Bridgette Pan did an interview on-site with IPVM (which has been condensed & edited).

Topics covered:

  • Why they did not attend Taiwan's largest trade show?
  • What their reaction was to IPVM's latest favorability results?
  • How they view integrators concerns about being dated or poor marketing?
  • What they are doing about facial recognition and AI?
  • What impact do they see from the expected Taiwan Hikua ban?
  • What impact has US NDAA Ban had for them?
  • How they are handling the potential for a Huawei Hisilicon ban?
