Application Development

At the heart of NEC's capability lies the Application Development Team. This team is responsible for development of new software based products, research into next generation networks (mobile, fixed, packet based, biometrics, audio visual), prototyping of new ideas/concepts, and engineering customer solutions. NEC NZ has been involved in the development of software in NZ since 1982.


A key business for NEC, we have supplied the NZ Police with leading fingerprinting technology for nearly 20 years. NEC can develop biometric solutions for the following biometric categories.

  • Fingerprint
  • Palm print
  • Facial recognition
  • Behaviour recognition

While some deployments are confidential, an excellent example of the innovation displayed in the biometrics area is the award winning 'Face to Face' competition run for Sanitarium's Weet-Bix brand which was the first commercial deployment of facial recognition for a New Zealand campaign. This was so successful it was repeated in Australia.


NEC supplies and installs commercial AV equipment to some of our biggest name brand companies. These companies have all made a major investment in their brands and the digital content displayed. They know that this investment would be unproductive if the screen or projector fails so NEC is the brand of choice when it really matters. Often these networks operate in demanding environments and our customers appreciate the on site warranty and the can do problem solving attitude of our staff.
