CCTV - security and beyond

April 2007 News

Hi-Tech Security Solutions brings you the 2007 CCTV Handbook. The third of its kind, this reference book again contains stories of trends and best practice in the closed circuit television arena, as well as some case studies of successful applications of the technology.

The benefits of CCTV are apparent, and growing. A report available from on the UK CCTV market claims that: "Replacement systems, extensions and upgradation play key roles in the UK CCTV market that is poised for a 7% compound rate growth by 2009 to the tune of £700 million, as opposed to £568 million in 2004. CCTV market growth from 2006 to 2009 is expected to witness a significantly high demand for digital recording equipment." And this in a country whose capital already boasts what are probably the most intensive CCTV systems in the world!

The trend towards IP CCTV is also growing, but traditional CCTV certainly still has a significant role to play, which is why we have looked at both in this Handbook and endeavoured to provide fair comment on both technologies to assist you in making the correct, and informed, choice for your CCTV application and solution - from sophisticated tiny systems for covert surveillance to huge integrated systems for fighting crime, we have got it covered.

Enjoy the read and if there is any more you would like to know - or need to know - about CCTV, let us know and we will look into it for a future issue of either the Handbook or the monthly Hi-Tech Security Solutions magazine.
