Course details:

Network video - The Benefits

An introductory seminar focusing on the key technical differences and benefits that Network Video (IP) offers over traditional analogue CCTV. Features such as Power over Ethernet, progressive scan and megapixel technology are covered amongst others with an exploration of the commercial benefits attained by using an IP solution.

Network video- Megapixel and HDTV

This presentation covers the benefits and design considerations of megapixel technology. Examine the difference between HD and HDTV, including example applications and where the technology can be implemented to not only improve image quality but also to reduce costs.

IP surveillance systems and the positive impact on a user's power consumption

This seminar looks to highlight new technologies readily available on the market and how by selecting the right features can reduce the energy associated with this offering.

Privacy by Design and its impact on security systems when complying with GDPR (UK and Ireland)

Privacy by design is an approach to projects that promotes privacy and data protection compliance from the start. Unfortunately, these issues are often bolted on as an after-thought or ignored altogether. Security systems capture and store Personally Identification Information (PII). Understand these systems and your considerations. Privacy by Design will become a level obligation for GDPR compliance, make sure you are prepared by these changes.

Network video - Compression Techniques and optimising bit rate

An appraisal of the most commonly used video compression techniques in network video (IP). Why compression is needed, what are the most common methods used and what impact does it have has on bandwidth, storage and the benefits and limitations of each discussed.

Network video - Making the difference for retail

An exploration of how network video can meet the security, fraud and merchandising challenges found in the retail sector.

Physical access control takes on a new direction

This seminar aims to inform viewer of the make up and trends in the PACS market; developments in new practices and the growing adoption of open solutions using IP connectivity and a best of breed approach to physical access control systems security.

Smart Physical Security

The future of access control As the business demands and expectation of a traditional access control change, understand the market trends in the Physical Access Control Security (PACS) market. Leverage developments in new practices and the growing adoption to open solutions using IP connectivity and a best of breed approach to physical access control systems security. At the end of the CPD the viewer should be better informed to consider technical options and specify PAS solutions which are scalable from small through to Enterprise PACS performance and offer life use/cost considerations which may not have been available in traditional, proprietary access control solutions.

Network video - Image usability

What is the most important element when designing a network video solution?  This presentation covers image useability and looks at the design considerations when building a network video solution.

Network surveillance cameras and the importance of best of breed

This seminar demonstrates that the security sector is a diverse market place, and that whilst having similar applications there is considerable difference in their operational issues and as such require solutions that meet their individual industry drivers.

Why is cybersecurity important to physical security?

Digital and physical security are not separate systems.  In today's automatic world and the ever-increasing visibility of the Internet of Things (IoT), it is important for information and physical security professional to work together to protect physical infrastructure.

Ten reasons to adopt a network audio solution

Audio systems are moving from the traditional analogue world to utilising network infrastructure, making these systems quicker and easier to design, install and manage. Network audio is audio which is transferred using a network cable (Ethernet/PoE) to a network speaker. This can be compared to analogue audio which is transferred over analogue audio cables. As Smart building embrace a connect infrastructure, why should site audio systems be any different?

Network video- Video analytics

A realistic appraisal of what is achievable with intelligent video. This presentation moves away from the specification sheet and focuses on the actual design considerations when putting together an intelligent video solution. Topics covered include the impact of scene, environment and application challenges as well as managing your customer's expectations. This session also examines the advantages and disadvantages of edge, central and hybrid processing. The capabilities and demands of a traditional surveillance system has changed significantly in recent years. How can advanced security analytics be added at the edge and what consideration can be made using business intelligence analytics.

How network video can support suicide prevention on the rail network

This course touches on the impact of suicide when committed on the rail network and concentrates on how network video might contribute to its prevention. It describes current suicide countermeasures and details the size of the challenge which the rail industry faces. This paper explains how IP network video can support existing measures in order to provide an effective overall suicide prevention solution.

Smarter & Safer Cities – Vision or Reality?

This seminar will look to explore the concepts of Smarter Safer cities and why there is such a buzz around this topic. You will have seen from the huge levels of publicity, that both governments in the UK and around the world are looking to invest in Cities to make them more efficient and at the same time enhancing the experience of citizens that live there and work there. So is this achievable based on the technologies today and if so, what should the considerations be to address the future of Smart Cities?
