The security week: Surveillance predictions for 2010

Hello there, security newsfolks. It’s time to dish the dirt on the juiciest security news stories of the week, all courtesy of your friendly neighbourhood security newsportal, info4security. Let’s crack on.

First up is IMS Research’s top 10 video surveillance predictions for 2010. Do you agree with their conclusions? Or do you think they’ve gone and got it all wrong? Vent your spleen – or offer words of support – once you’ve read the article.

We’ve also been blessed with two pieces of opinionising from security news dynamo and gentleman editor Brian Sims: there’s his SMT Online Editor’s View, focusing on the SIA’s Annual Report; and his take on the Mylene Klass knife-wielding ballyhoo.

Brian also spoke exclusively to BSIA chairman Stuart Lowden about the appointment of James Kelly as the association’s chief executive.

In other news this week, DVTel has acquired ioimage; a West African edition of IFSEC is set to launch next year; photographers are planning a protest this weekend (thanks to these sorts of incidents); and Honeywell has gone all wireless on us.

And our Song About Security this week comes from Australian rock revivalists Wolfmother, who have big hair. Yikes!

Mylene Klass; and DVTel acquires ioimage

Today on I4S Brian Sims offers his take on the Mylene Klass knife-wielding brouhaha – and gives us the lowdown on a protest set to take place this weekend.

There’s also the news that DVTel has acquired prominent Israeli analytics equipment firm and annoying user of lowercase letters ioimage. Owned.

Bosch has launched a new ‘no nonsense’ DVR; Siemens is providing outsourced CCTV for Bexley; IC2 is protecting Maidstone’s park and ride facilities; and IndigoVision is in action in Jordan (the country).

That’s some magnificent security news for you, right there.

Ahoy! Here are some highlights from security wondersite info4security. It’s where I am employed!

First up, it’s SMT Online editor Brian Sims, with his Editor’s View – this time he’s tackling the Security Industry Authority’s Annual Report. It’s a thrill-ride!

Industry group the HDcctv Alliance has ratified version 1.0 of its standard, allowing manufacturers to make compatible equipment. Up the coax!

There’s also Genetec in action at the MCG; a new appointment for DVTel; and the launch of a new thermal imager.
