ASIS 2008 – Security Seminar

29 08 2008

The most common question we field on a daily basis is helping individuals understand the basic differences between Standalone DVR and a PC Based DVR card.

Just when you thought that could come down to some simple comparisons, the industry informs us that NO there are many different approaches. Anyone with the opportunity to attend this year’s event or better yet is serious about finding new solutions that are available to your particular need, should make every effort to attend this show.

Surveillance / Security / Access Controls / CCTV / Biometics and yes IT Security are all coming together at one main event to show case the new products and where the industry is headed.

The one event we have ear-marked is on Tuesday, September 16, 2008 between 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. The precise location will be Room C304 (Building C, Level 3) within the Georgia World Congress Center. Apple to co-host panel on future of video surveillance. As I have posted before on numerous other blogs and forums Apple has yet to open the gates for iPhone. Currently the majority of products run on a Windows platform an seem to be heading toward Open Source.

We bring this up as the main point of consideration when considering the type of solution you looking at. Will it be easy to upgrade the system in the “NEAR” future. Can multi-systems co-exist amongst each other? What is the real depth of “proprietary” solutions?

The basic limitations with standalones:

  • requires a Static IP for remote access – additional $30 a month from your service provider.
  • adding addition camera’s – not possible
  • browsers or menu’s used have limitations to type of control and viewing

PC Based solutions on the other hand:

  • use your current IP for remote access
  • additional camera’s – add a card
  • vendors are starting to open up the ability to work with different camera’s
  • real time recording and play back is far greater

The use of surveillance has taken on new meaning in todays business. What it needs to explore and market is an alternative use. The current task facing the industry is funneling multi-XML feeds to one control panel. This way no-one is tied to one particular vendor or camera. My concern is turning the process around. How many of you really know what turned Feedburner into a Google purchase. When they turned everything around and “PUSHED” feeds, the birth of Broadcasting.

We have not seen any results of Apple’s effort to stream live Olympics feeds and I doubt this seminar will provide any announcements pertaining to it. But what they have accomplished is creating a 2nd vehicle that will compete with main stream media. Let’s face facts, outside the US because the lack of cable infrastructure and land-lines in general, a cell is the most common used accessory, an Apple wants iPhone to be the choice.

After all these years of computers (PCs & Servers) finally getting narrowed down to a couple of name brands, Surveillance Security solutions show up with 10K vendors each clawing for their piece of this exploding market.    So don’t feel alone and confused, it’s my business of choice and I’m going bald…..

A new video(vodpod widget), from the surveillance camera right outside our building.    Our approach in promoting this technology – show some actual proof. Was our hero marking his territory for a later return?    Businesses/citizens of Naperville, IL (3rd best place, to live) need to be awakened, the simple fact what may seem a  Stupid Criminal would still be on the streets in your town.

With that said, stop by the Mazy Hedayat’s pm blog, he needs your help informing attorneys of the new web tools out there.   Like that group doesn’t have DuPage’s Funniest Video…..

Mike Dunteman’s blog offers some helpful thoughts on visuable OutSide Security Cameras.   Which our hero here didn’t read because his hands were busy

In moving forward with our theme: “Changing the view” .

Our first attempt: http://platinum-cctv.com/ManufacturingCCTVCameras.aspx

Second phase is more “client” based video for display. Third is finishing our training room, Mike is looking forward to doing “Webinars” with surveillance equipment. For now let’s stay the simple course and discuss other use for video content.

Though we have seen the “crazy Office guy” video, what about an operation than is a quick turn business for cash. Say – beauty salon and all that entails. Or as suggested: the production facility, either management watching or marketing VP’s taking advantage of the content.

Service Oriented business should consider any form of getting your message out. The days of read a script are over. Showing a video of a satisfied client speaks it’s weight. Showing a facilities’ capacity to meet a required dead-line with qualified staff could close the deal. Waiting is not a option, remember Obama’s question to American Competitiveness – American made needs to be on video, whatever it takes.
