In recent years, CCTV has become a more prevalent topic of conversation, featuring in national and international media, particularly in high-profile investigations. The Security Institute, in its latest Good Practice Guide, supported by Dallmeier UK, brings the subject bang up to date by covering in some detail the issues of procurement, good management and legislation that managers of such systems need to be aware of. Much has been written about CCTV, albeit rarely from an informed single source. This latest guide has sought to provide a definitive resource to address the requirements when looking at this area of security.
Image quality and integrity are of the highest importance in any CCTV system. The quality of an image is directly related to the constituent components, from the camera through to the recorder and, if applicable, the monitoring. All of these topics and more are covered in this excellent guide which has been written by CCTV experts who are members of the Institute.
Led by renowned CCTV expert Gordon Tyerman with fellow Institute members, this guide is a must-have for all practicing or aspiring security professionals who manage CCTV systems or are involved in their procurement. Written in simple, easy to understand language, the guide is designed to demystify some of the more technical and legislative issues.
This guide will be launched at 2.00 pm on Wednesday 16th May on the Dallmeier stand D80, Hall4 at IFSEC (running at the NEC in Birmingham from 14-17th May 2012), where copies will be available to buy at the special discounted price of £20 each. The cost of the guide is normally £15 to Institute members and £25 to non members. Pre orders are being taken via the website at www.security-institute.org and by phone on 08453 707717.
