Battlefield: The (test) Gear of Wars

Only you gamers will get those references in this title, I guess. Just lately I was honoured to be the guy on the cover of CCTV Image magazine! This issue was fresh off the presses for IFSEC 2012. My regular article for the ‘Talking Shop’ column this time illustrates the test gear that a good […]

Finalist for Security Consultant of the Year!

Security Consultant of the Year 2011. How would that have sounded? To some, rather impressive. To others, something of a show-off.

A photograph in a recent issue of that fine CCTV Image magazine, the organ of the CCTV User Group, showed a spanking new CCTV control room. The proud owners had invested in a bank of monitors often known as a video wall. Nothing unusual there, you might say to yourself. Indeed. (My thoughts on how […]

Designing CCTV using 3D

 

I must start with an apology for the long gap between blog posts. June simply flew by and much of it was spent writing, just not here! I was writing for a presentation I was invited to give at a seminar on 17th June sponsored by The Security Institute as part of their CPD […]

Why hire CCTV Consultants?

If you can afford for your CCTV to let you down just when you need it to deliver, fine, don’t waste more money hiring a consultant who’s capable of making sure it’s working properly. However, should that thought cause you sleepless nights the next five minutes reading are definitely right up your street.
