IFSEC India is a platform that brings together the leading Indian and international homeland security solution providers with the key decision makers and influencers from the Indian Government and private industry looking to source the latest homeland security innovations and technology. Mr Sunny Ho, Sales Director at NEC Asia Pacific, will be speaking on "NEC High Sensitivity Camera - Power of Seeing in Darkness" at the IFSEC, FIREX & HOMELAND SECURITY INDIA 2010: Technical Seminar, on 23 November 2010, at Hall 1, Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai.

On this occasion, Mr Koji Oda, Managing Director, NEC India said, "The public safety market in India has tremendous potential. In the years to come, integrated security solutions will play an important role in refining security and strengthening law enforcement. NEC recognizes this growing demand and offers a wide range of security and surveillance solutions which can be seamlessly integrated into new or existing security systems. The exhibition gives the consumers an opportunity to experience our cutting-edge solutions and the various benefits they offer."

Mr Tan Boon Chin, Managing Director, Regional Competency Centre for Public Safety at NEC Asia Pacific reaffirms, "NEC is a leading player in the field of public safety solutions, which has some of the world's most accurate biometrics identification systems. As part of our global vision plan to grow our capabilities and technologies worldwide, NEC remains committed to developing and bringing in our best-of-breed and proven integrated security solutions to this part of the world, playing our part to improving the public safety in this region and around the world."

According to Acuity Market Intelligence2, the global market for biometrics core technology is currently valued at US$2.58billon, and this is expected to swell to US$11billion by 2017. Global events such as terrorist attacks on World Trade Center in the U.S. on Sept 11, have catalyzed governments around the world to review their national needs to improve and raise the standards for civilian identification. Asia, home to more than two billion people, has become an increasingly important market for public safety solutions providers. The Asia Pacific region is expected to generate the greatest percent of revenues for the biometrics industry, with more than 32% of global revenues by 2017, and market dominance for such solutions and services is anticipated to shift from Europe and the US to Asia. Accuracy & precision of security solutions are crucial requirements of homeland and border control security systems, and NEC's world-class solutions and expertise in this area are best suited to address a country's public safety requirements.

In view of the growing demand for public safety solutions and services globally, NEC has established a regional competency centre for public safety (RCC-PS) in Singapore since April 2010, to leverage on its expertise to develop the public safety businesses in Asia Pacific and support the NEC subsidiaries around the world. In May this year, NEC launched its first "NEC Biometrics Excellence Center" (N-BEC) in Bangalore, India, to provide world class engineering competency to cater to the company's global chain engaged in development, deployment and support of identity solutions for the international market. This center is also aimed at accelerating the expansion of NEC's global multimodal identification solutions3 and integrated security solutions business, including its renowned automated fingerprint identification solutions and face recognition solutions.
