Raicom, importers and distributors of CCTV and intercom systems, recently added the Hitachi range of CCTV equipment to its range of products.

Hitachi, headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, is one of the world's most diversified global electronics companies. The company manufactures and markets a wide range of products, including computers, semiconductors, consumer products and power and industrial equipment. Hitachi has 1069 subsidiaries, including 335 overseas corporations. The company's cameras and controllers are among some of the products that Raicom will have available.
