Today, IC Realtime announced a strategic plan to provide advanced video surveillance products from South Korea, a TAA-compliant country. The intention is to deliver exclusive products centered around standards that converge upon information security and restrict the use of Chinese products.

With the recent ban on Chinese products, the company says this will bridge the gap with turn-key solutions that are fully compliant, allowing customers the opportunity to bid on medium-large projects that require the equipment to be certified. One hundred percent of IC Realtime products are UL-listed and 30-50 percent will be manufactured in Korea to IC Realtime’s specific requirements. ICR plans to have its entire line made in Korea by mid-2021.

“We are leading the way of creating and securing a certified line of products that will have far fewer constraints on where they may be installed,” said IC Realtime CEO Matt Sailor. “This will give our customers a huge advantage in the marketplace because most companies will not be compliant and, thus, not allowed to be installed in these types of facilities . . . We have been working on this project for over 18 months now and could not be more excited to finally take it to market.”
