NDS first started working in China in 1998 and it is an increasingly important market for us. With ongoing investment in our Shenzhen facility, we are able to increase development, work with local vendors and provide our Chinese customers with solutions that are tailored for the market. In the last two years we have doubled the number of NDS employees in China and we plan to continue substantial recruitment in the region in the coming year, stated Sue Taylor, chair, NDS China.

The facility, in conjunction with the existing Asia Pacific R&D centers in Bangalore and Korea, also plays a pivotal role in the development of NDS next-generation technologies for global customers.

Our increased presence in China provides the opportunity for Chinese CE and STB manufacturers to work closely with NDS global integration teams, providing further opportunities for international export, added Taylor.
