Great progress has been made with the Xingguang China Chip Internet of Things Project, a provincial level strategic project assigned to Hengqin. The project aims to industrialize the applications of security monitoring chips, which meet SVAC (Surveillance Video and Audio Coding), known as the national video surveillance technological standard, in theInternet of Things industry.
According to the Guangdong Vimicro limited company, contractor of the project, the first type of the chip will soon come into the market, and web cameras installed with the chip have already appeared on the market. As the first product of the project, this type of web camera, having the features of low light and high definition, can present the color, shape and detail of an object, which is placed in an utterly dark room where ordinary cameras cannot work. Yet, this is just one of the project’s achievements.
Since its establishment in Hengqin in 2014, Guangdong Vimicro has devoted itself to the Xingguang China Chip Internet of Things Project that is also the major strategic project for Hengqin and even Zhuhai’s innovation drive. After more than a year’s development, breakthrough progress has been made.
Currently, the company has two research and development centers in Hengqin and one research institute located at the South China University of Technology. Among its R&D team of about 130 people, half of them have a master or higher degree. The company has so far applied for 53 patents for technological invention.
In the future, Guangdong Vimicro plans to establish an industrial park that focuses on security monitoring. By utilizing Hengqin’s favorable policies, the company intends to attract enterprises from SVAC-related industries into the park and forge a high-tech industrial chain in Hengqin.
