In the Thai language (we were previously based in Thailand for 8 years), SingMai means 'new idea' and that concept is at the heart of all the products we sell.

SingMai originally proposed the analogue HD transmission format that is now used internationally by security companies around the world. Innovation in our IP core portfolio has seen us sell to prestigious companies such as General Dynamics, Lockheed, L3, ATX Networks, Rhode and Schwarz, Innosilicon and Rockchip, and to 20 countries across the globe, from Canada to South Korea.

SingMai were recently awarded a contract by Scottish Enterprise and the South Ayrshire Council to develop a custom CCTV camera. Also, SingMai are currently developing an improved VHS player which will allow faster than real time, higher quality transfer of valuable VHS tapes to a more modern digital medium.

SingMai are regular attendees to various exhibitions around the world, contribute articles to magazines and speak at conferences.

Allow SingMai's design innovation to differentiate your products in the market.

Working for SingMai.

SingMai offer a stimulating environment for budding engineers. Some of the highlights working for SingMai include:


  • We believe in a proper work/life balance. All employees work a 4 day, 30 hour week. Home working is also encouraged.
  • Aptitude is the asset we look for, not qualifications.
  • We encourage individual thinking - we don't do teambuilding (but we do drink beer).
  • You will responsible for the design of products from a 'blank sheet of paper' through to production.
  • We try and do everything in-house.
  • We encourage (and pay for) you to join relevant organisations such as the IEEE and SMPTE and visit conferences and exhibitions.
  • We have customers in over twenty countries around the world and there are opportunities for travel, from Taipei to Philadelphia.
  • We encourage non-engineering activities to broaden your horizons (music, art, astronomy).
  • Ayr is quite nice, by the sea and less than an hour from Glasgow.
