It’s a buzzing industry

May 2016 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, News

Welcome to the CCTV Handbook 2016, our annual foray into what’s happening in the world of surveillance in Africa and globally. We’re particularly fortunate in this issue to be able to include not only our usual round table discussion with a few users and integrators about the realities they face in the surveillance world, but also a review of iLegal 2016. It certainly is a busy and buzzing industry.

iLegal has become something of an icon in the local surveillance market. It’s a one-day conference Hi-Tech Security Solutions and Dr Craig Donald host that has repeatedly been able to deliver outstanding presentations and pass on useful information to those involved in surveillance decision making.

This year was no exception. We had a full house, despite the economy, and the reviews from the attendees were overwhelmingly positive.

On a personal note, I would like to take this opportunity to again thank the attendees for their time as well as our presenters who put a significant amount of work into their presentations, and once again delivered beyond expectations. The team organising the event at Hi-Tech Security Solutions also did a fabulous job in tough conditions – you know the economy sucks when even the luxury goods companies complain about a lack of budget.

In the 2016 handbook you will be able to read a short review of the presentations, but it has to be said: you had to be there. You can’t do justice to a full presentation in a page or less of editorial, but we try to convey the salient points. The keynote from Australia’s Jeff Corkill set the scene. He spoke about the importance of extracting intelligence from your surveillance operation as well as the traditional evidential footage.

The concept of intelligence was one that repeatedly raised its head in the conference and you will see it popping up throughout the handbook. Big data, as the IT world calls it, is no longer the domain of IT; there is no bigger data than hours upon hours of high definition video footage.

It is also pertinent to thank all the people who contributed to this handbook in their different capacities. I would hand out bottles of red wine as thank you gifts, but I seem to have finished them all in the process of finalising the publication.

Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy the handbook and the information we have to offer. As always, your comments and criticisms are very welcome. It’s less than a year before we start the next CCTV Handbook and your input is invaluable.
