The occasion was opened by H.E. Mr. Antony Phillipson, British High Commissioner to Singapore. Attendees travelled from countries as far away as the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam and India.

Oncam Grandeye’s innovative and patented 360-degree technology was warmly received; guests immediately grasped the benefits that the pioneering technology would bring to their companies.

Total Situational Awareness was the news focus, with a live demonstration that powerfully illustrated how 360-degree surveillance could provide companies in Singapore and the region with an efficient and scalable solution to immediately enhance the safety and security of their businesses—be they concerned with critical infrastructure, retail, banking, transport or any number of other sectors.

“There is no better country to launch our new technology,” said David Hudson MBE, regional president of Oncam Grandeye. “We have invested heavily by opening a new office in Singapore and we will be hiring local tech experts and partnering with Singaporean firms.”

“I congratulate Oncam on opening its Singapore office, which will also serve as its headquarters in Asia-Pacific,” said H.E. Mr. Antony Phillipson, British High Commissioner to Singapore. “The private security industry in the U.K. makes a vital contribution to keeping us safe and secure each and every day. From electronic security technologies such as CCTV and intruder alarms, through to physical security measures and security guarding, our daily lives are now entwined with security measures in many forms. U.K. security expertise has been developed over many years in a number of areas, including counter-terrorism, security guarding and CCTV. The successful delivery of the 2012 London Games and 2014 Glasgow Games are testament to the U.K.’s expertise in safety and security. We are fully committed to supporting the U.K. security industry’s expansion into export markets such as Singapore and the wider region, and are delighted that Oncam has chosen to establish themselves here. I wish the company well in the exciting time they have ahead of them."

Attendees concurred: “I established my company in 1986 and we only represent the highest quality products,” said Dr Il. Sanny Suharli, Group Chairman of Professtama Development Group, a group of companies that concentrates on safety and the security industry. “I have never seen such amazing technology and I will be pleased to take this exciting innovation to Indonesia.”

The event had the support of the UK Trade and Investment office in Singapore.
