It’s almost upon us. That once a year, adrenalised security thrill-monkey that is IFSEC. Monday’s the kick-off, though exhibitors are likely to be gathering in Birmingham even now. But not in a menacing way. Well, not necessarily.
SMT Online editor Brian Sims has been busy chatting to some of the major exhibitors about their plans for the show. See what luminaries from Sony, Panasonic (Steven Gerrard, no less!) and HID Global have to say about what they’re launching, and the state of the market.
Of course there’s also a raft of preview information from more than 70 exhibitors on our dedicated IFSEC news page. Some of the latest articles focus on iDTEQ, Zyxel and ACTi, CSL DualCom, VideoIQ, Irisys, ASL Vision, Clearview, Honeywell, and the recently launched Mobile Phone Security Association.
In the midst of all of this IFSEC 2010 preparation, Brian has managed to find time to have a chat with Nick Palmer of VSG about the company’s rigorous vetting procedures.
And we’ve had advice from our Access Control Doctor on using the features of high end access systems.
Sometimes you just want to know what it is that everyone’s keen on reading. That’s why we provide our handy ‘Best read stories’ service. It tells you which I4S stories have been read by the most people in the last month. Wow!
Our Song About Security this week comes from excellent electropop Mancunians New Order. Have it, etc.
Also, there was an election in the UK yesterday. Interesting.
