The security week: CCTV performance, video analytics, and football violence

What a week of security news it’s been, eh? It was crazy!

How’s this? It’s a bit of an in-depth look at one of the questions in our CCTV End User Survey – this time dealing with performance expectations. Wow!

SMT Online editor Brian Sims this week looked at the security implications following the latest bit of football violence following the West Ham/Millwall match, in his SMT Online Editor’s View. And this week’s Song About Security focuses on that very topic as well.

We’ve also got a couple of articles on the furore surrounding the London Met Police report into the effectiveness of CCTV for crime solving – here’s take one; and here’s take two. Double fun!

Don’t forget to check out our latest Bench Test; get some words of advice from the Access Control Doctor; and find out about the debate surrounding using video analytics at the edge or centre of a CCTV system. Mind blowing!
