The security week: In-house inaction, and HD CCTV

Yo yo yo yo yo yo yo. Hi there. It’s been another week of high octane security news excitement, so let’s dive right in.

First up is old pal Wilson Chowdhry with his take on the licensing – or lack of licensing – of in-house security officers. He thinks it’s a missed opportunity. Yourself?

This morning myself and Security Installer editor Alan Hyder met with a man with one of the coolest surnames in all of security: Todd Rockoff. (Sure, he’s no Roger Vigilance, but who is?) Todd’s the executive director of the HDcctv Alliance, who are advocates of High Definition CCTV, you’ll be shocked to know. This new technology aims to utilise broadcast quality HD images across standard coaxial cable, and looks like it could be an important alternative to megapixel IP CCTV. Here’s a short video of what he had to say. We’ll be running a full exclusive feature interview on I4S next week.

Speaking of HD, Dallmeier’s new series of recorders glories in the ridiculous name of ‘In Memory of Leonardo’. I have nothing more to add to that one.

This week’s Song About Security comes from Public Enemy, and follows in that fine tradition of tunes about escaping from jail. Or gaol. But I assume they probably mean jail.

IFSEC India 2009 is happening in just a couple of months’ time. Why not go there, and also visit Internal Security India, the Counter Terror India conference, and Firex India? Do so! It’s no joke.
