CCTV Image Magazine -issue 35

Advance features list – issue 35 – September 2009

Articles being considered for our next issue – (Subject to change)

::Rooms with a View: case studies of control rooms and CCTV systems around the country
· Newark and Sherwood District Council: Predominantly rural, Newark and Sherwood presents challenges for CCTV monitoring. The council has recently upgraded its CCTV systems from analogue to IP, but CCTV manager Mark Henry has plans for further development in cooperation with the IT services department.
· Slough Borough Council: We visit Peter Webster, head of the CCTV system at Slough, to find out about his ambitious expansion plans. Peter already has a close working relationship with Thames Valley Police to monitor ANPR cameras in the Borough, and he has plans for further developments that will make Slough an attractive partner for neighbouring areas looking to outsource their monitoring.
· Sussex Police: Working closely with BT, Sussex police have completely revamped their CCTV system. Operating two control rooms (down from four) covering some 30 towns and cities in this largely rural police force area, the system is, according to BT, a model for large scale monitoring systems which cover a wide geographical area.
· IP camera standards - ONVIF: Interoperability between IP CCTV products – that is, how cameras, video recorders and control systems can work together – is key to the future development of IP CCTV. In this issue, we take a look at ONVIF, the Open Network Video Interface Forum. Next issue, we look at the Physical Security Interoperability Alliance (PSIA), a predominantly American organisation, committed to similar objectives.
· High Def CCTV: coming to a control room near you soon? The HD CCTV Alliance has been established to help transport this technology – increasingly wide-spread in the entertainment industry – to the security industry. We interview some of the leaders of the HDCCTV Alliance.
· And more excellent reasons to read CCTV Image: · Prof. Martin Gill – a regular column from the CCTV academic and director of the Perpetuity Group. · Talking Shop – with some of the leading consultants in CCTV today.
