BSIA code of practice forms basis for new British Standard
A British Security Industry Association code of practice has now been developed into a new British Standard for digital CCTV recording systems for the purpose of exported image data to be used as evidence.
BSIA CCTV Section chairman, Pauline Norstrom, comments, "BSIA CCTV section members are delighted to have made such a significant contribution to the development of this new British Standard - BS 8495:2007. Ensuring that digital CCTV footage carries sufficient weight in court is of paramount importance and is dependent on a number of factors including: image quality and authenticity; storage; the method used to export images; playback; operator/owner awareness; and a comprehensive audit trail.
"The new standard should be seen as an independent benchmark for customers to look for when choosing a digital CCTV system. Ultimately, we want to see the same confidence in the validity of digital media in the criminal justice system as there is in VHS tape from a traditional VCR and this new standard is a significant step towards this."
