eter Houlis 2020Vision System’s Managing Director has been invited to participate in the Security Technology Leaders Forum. Along with senior representatives from key technology vendors in the industry including manufacturers of cameras, video analytics software, video management systems and command and control systems, as well senior individuals from the worlds of access control, fire and intruder alarms, intercoms and building management systems.
The worlds of guarding, outsourced services, integration and consulting, as well as end users and Government bodies, will also take part in this important debate which offers those involved a great opportunity to look forward and make their own predictions for technology adoption in the new decade.
At the inaugural meeting to be held at United Business Media HQ in London on Friday 23rd of April, participants will examine the following areas (and more besides) relating to security technology:
- The speed of migration from analogue to IP surveillance – what’s driving this change from a technological standpoint?
- How fast is that change occurring, and will we reach a ‘tipping point’ – if so, when?
- What factors are driving IP adoption in terms of business-critical issues/vertical sector penetration?
- Which technologies might be commoditised, built-into central management systems or cameras?
- Will/should more and more functionality head into central systems or flow towards the edge devices?
- Is megapixel technology really the ‘game changer’ it’s billed to be in terms of quality output?
- Is the whole ‘HD versus megapixel’ debate little more than a marketing-driven red herring or something more significant?
- What does all of this technological development mean for the security manager, and could it be that all physical security requirements might be managed by IT Departments in ten years’ time?
- If that were to happen, are there any inherent dangers within this approach?
- How should security managers ‘defend their corner’?
- What does all of this mean for security guarding companies, and how will they need to adapt and change?
- Will the security industry have to reinvent itself to embrace technological change?
- What are the barriers to change, and how will they be broken down?
- What is likely to be ‘The Next Big Innovation’ in security technology?
To address the demand from the end user community for more information and education as to how they can implement security strategies and deliver better ROI for their businesses edited and approved output from this first debate will be published on Security Management Today SMT Online There will also be a live blog on the event, to be hosted by www.info4security.com and a live Twitter (www.twitter.com) to feed in action during the debate, and post-event podcasts of the most important points made.
