Hanwha Techwin reports its flagship camera line, Wisenet X, is now certified with Genetec Security Center 5.6 SR1 utilizing H.265 and WiseStream technology.

HILLS CEO David Lenz says the company expects to report a small loss in FY17 followed by a return to profit in FY18.

“Hills has further reduced operating expenses and, along with the changes made earlier in FY17, expects to deliver an annualised reduction of approximately $A12m in FY18,” Lenz said. “This has been achieved through continuing to flatten the organisation and ensuring minimal impact on front-end customer service.”

Lenz said Hills Limited expected to deliver a full year statutory loss of between $6–$8m for FY17, compared to a statutory loss of $68.3m in FY16.

“The operating cash flow is currently targeted to be neutral for the second half of FY17 inclusive of restructuring costs and charges associated with the proposed Lincor transaction, which were paid in the second half,” he said.
