Headquartered in Seoul, Korea, POSCO International Corporation (KRX: 047050) is a leader in international trade, development and management of infrastructure and resource development. In 2020, POSCO International generated a revenue of 49 billion USD, creating jobs for thousands of employees and making significant impacts on various industries around the world, including steel, cement, crude oil, heavy machinery, automobile parts, and textiles. Their meeting rooms are where some of the world’s most confidential and the most life-changing dialogues take place.


ELECTROSMITH, the distributor of NorthVision overseeing accounts based in Korea, is the latest proud vendor of POSCO International, supplying NorthVision VisionShare AC20 to play such a critical part of each meeting at the heart of POSCO International's everyday business.


How risky is Wi-Fi?

NorthVision VisionShare is the chosen winner primarily for security reasons, where all other brands fall short. Inside the building of POSCO International, where many top business secrets are exchanged one meeting after another, there is a highly secure area with Wireless Intrusion Prevention Systems (WIPSs) setup. In most cases, WIPSs are established to help prevent cyber criminals from the opportunities to steal personal data, eavesdrop, and spread malware over Wi-Fi. All competing solutions require users to connect their systems to Wi-Fi, whereas VisionShare is the one and only in the world that does not rely on Wi-Fi. It operates within the proprietary 60GHz frequency.


While Wi-Fi provides the ultimate technological convenience, it is still not yet immune to cybersecurity threats, even 20 years after entering the mainstream. Wi-Fi WPA2 encryption utilized by modern Wi-Fi has been categorized a security measure, but according to a discovery white paper, there are serious weaknesses in WPA2, a protocol that secures all modern protected Wi-Fi networks, allowing any attacker within range of a victim to easily exploit these weaknesses using Key Reinstallation AttaCKs (KRACKs).


In a nutshell, a WIPS a network device that monitors the radio spectrum for the presence of any unauthorized endpoints or rogue access points (intrusion detection) and can automatically take countermeasures (intrusion prevention). Large organizations with many employees, such as POSCO International, are particularly vulnerable to security breaches caused by rogue access points. If an employee in a location brings in an easily available wireless router, the entire network can be exposed to anyone within range of the signals. Unlike other brands, VisionShare keeps POSCO International protected. On-site demo video footage is available on our YouTube channel.


VisionShare: favorite brand among IT and Network Engineers

Other than security, VisionShare also outshines other brands in the quality, performance department. POSCO International gladly confirms absolutely zero latency or delay in video output, plus identical picture quality via cable without a single compression. Excellent compatibility with Windows, Mac, or any mobile device is another IT department’s favorite. Network engineers also love how low maintenance VisionShare is – no installation of any third-party software or driver installation needed, so they can focus on other business objectives rather constantly upgrading firmware and fixing related errors.


"VisionShare is the best after meticulous evaluation and comparison to various other brands. I expect VisionShare to be used in many other companies in the future," a POSCO International representative said in a statement. “Thanks to VisionShare, a clean, luxurious and highly versatile conference room environment has now been created."


The success story with POSCO International is another testament to the strong bond between NorthVision and our channel partners. NorthVision is known for tirelessly supporting channel partners with project wins, business development and brand awareness.

Have you ever wondered how your collaboration system decodes and delivers your wireless presentation? The answer would depend on which system you use: Barco Clickshare, BenQ InstaShow or NorthVision VisionShare?




Your data is not safe when compressed

Both Clickshare and InstaShow compress your presentations, whereas we do not. Our competitors treat your presentations as data and compress them using algorithms. NorthVision treats your presentations as audio and visual content delivered frame by frame.


In the case of our competitors, they deploy compression algorithms with the main objective to reduce the space required in order to store the same amount of data. That sounds like a compromise, doesn’t it? You are right. It is a comprise – a compromise of the quality and the performance of your wireless presentation.


Is encryption the solution to compression?

Our competitors may defend themselves by doing compression and encryption before and after. Compression after encryption is not considered efficient. Compression before encrypting is common. However, no matter how common it is to compress data before encryption, it is still susceptible to attacks that may compromise data confidentiality, hence loopholes for hacking activities.


An example of a cyber-attack on your compressed wireless presentation before it gets encrypted may involve the use of JavaScript code to perform a brute force attack on the victim’s browser. This attack allows a threat agent to infer encrypted transmitted data based on the size of that compressed data. This is possible due to an intrinsic vulnerability to the operation of compression algorithms. When you use VisionShare, where your wireless presentation is delivered by frame, you are immune to such vulnerability.


Is your encryption standard properly implemented?

Compression aside, encryption method is also a factor of how secure your wireless presentation is. Clickshare is known for its AES-128 standard, which has enjoyed a solid reputation since it was introduced. Nevertheless, whether it gets properly implemented on the system you purchase from our competitors may impact how secure the AES-128 standard is. With a pressing shortage of highly trained cyber security professionals all over the world, not every wireless presentation system provider is able to retain the best talent.


You can have it all with our VisionShare

Again, your wireless presentation is not in safe hands when it is treated as data which our competitors compress, as data is made of binary codes susceptible to cybersecurity vulnerabilities. When your wireless presentation is decoded as audio and video content frame by frame through a NorthVision VisionShare, it is immune to such vulnerabilities.


The best part is our mission to protect you and your presentation does not stop there. Your wireless presentation is encrypted with VisionShare, but the technology we adopt to protect your presentation is not only different but also much better and more advanced. Stay tuned for Part II where we walk you through our content protection standard and certification.


Neither your organization nor your customers is supposed to have to choose. You all deserve to have it all: the highest security, the best performance and the non-existent latency or bandwidth issue. The day you choose a VisionShare from us is the day you start to truly have it all. Get a free trial with us today!
