|QDIS, known as the automotive video interface company, has launched the video security market. As the future business of the company, they will pursue the market with new product development. In order to enter the market, QDIS acquired the ITI, an IP camera developer who was responsible for the development of its automotive rear camera, in 2016, and acquired the VR business centered on IP cameras.|

QDIS acquired ITI by investing in Angel at Hanbat National University. They see that the technical development of artificial intelligence (AI) and recognition algorithms become important, and predicted that the image and sensor parts will be promising. After launching the VR division, QDIS focused on product development investment for two years until the first half of last year. As a result, in the second half of 2018, 360 degree all-around IP camera (omnidirectional IP camera) is used to mass-produce the parking control solution capable of recognizing the 8-sided numbering and recognizing the 12-sided parking space. Starting in September, sales in the public procurement market began to rise.
"The all-round IP camera is a proprietary product that has been patented by QDIS, and will be the future of QDIS for the next decade. In the past two years, focusing on development investments has been like no IP camera sales, Revenue began to be generated by supplying lens modules to INNODEP, an excellent procurement company. VR division sales will surpass the existing automotive division sales from the second half of 2019. "
Kim Sung-jin, CEO of QDIS, said, "I am confident that I have a Omni-Directional IP camera and a parking control solution using it. It is a patented product developed by the technology of the company. Kim was selected as a global IP Star company by the Korea Invention Industry Promotion Association and received support for the patent map, product design and 3D publicity film for the patented technology.

QDIS's '12 simultaneous parking control solution' is an intelligent parking control system that utilizes a pano-reflect lens applied to all-directional IP cameras. One camera is used to control up to 12 parking planes without blind spots, and image analysis is carried out to inform them of the availability of parking by a green lamp.
The problem of the parking control solution using fisheye lens is that the edge of the image is distorted due to the nature of the lens, which causes frequent problems in judging whether or not the parking is available. However, QDIS' 12-sided simultaneous parking control solution using a pano-reflet lens is able to construct a stable 12-way parking control solution by dramatically improving the image of the outer frame by applying a patented edge image enhancement design to the lens.
QDIS paid particular attention to the parking control system because it expected the expansion of parking control services to be expanded mainly in luxury apartments. Kim said, "I thought it was very convenient to provide information on the availability of green and red LED in large complex buildings such as department stores and marts. Recently, it has been decided that a parking lot solution is developed in the apartment complex by removing the ground parking lot and constructing a large number of underground parking lots. By developing such a parking control solution, it is possible to secure competitiveness through the parking control as well as convenience of residents "He said.
However, it was difficult to develop the product. They need to develop a solution that can reduce the errors and determine the environment of each parking lot by controlling the camera on one of the 12 sides. It is difficult to create and apply various test environments. Especially, it is difficult to reproduce various types of fire in the development of fire monitoring algorithm.
