Doktor Jon had an idea ...

Phase 1 of this project was officially launched on 1st June 2004, to provide a truly unique insight into "The Use and Application of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV)" ... but how did it all begin?
 

Well, once upon a time, in a not very distant land, Doktor Jon was plying his trade as a purveyor of fine CCTV systems, with smiling customers who had simple, cosy little problems. Whatever the job, DJ was here to help; but as the days grew shorter and his hair grew longer, he realised something was not quite right.
 

" 'ere mate, I'm gonna need to pick yer brains a bit ", were the cheery words that greeted him almost every single time he picked up the telephone.

As the 'brain picking' sessions increased in both intensity and duration, Doktor Jon thought that he'd really have to do something about it .... and quick!! Early retirement? ..... not really an option; relocate to the South of France or California? ..... too much like fun. It was whilst taking a leisurely stroll in the park, that it suddenly hit him out of the blue..... don't you just hate it when those damned frisbees smack you between the eyes!!

Some years ago, a survey was conducted to find out the views of CCTV manufacturers represented in the U.K. The questions were wide ranging, but one overwhelming opinion that stuck in Doktor Jons memory, was on the subject of information. When asked to comment on the statement, 'There is a real need for end users to be able to easily obtain good quality independent advice', would it surprise you to know that 92% of manufacturers agreed. In fact with another question, 84% thought that the CCTV industry should be responsible for educating their customers.
 

Anyway, based on those indicators and the fact that Doktor Jon couldn't cope with much more 'brain picking', the idea for a free access website providing information about CCTV, was born. Having set aside, about eight weeks to get the project up and running ... eighteen months and twenty nine nervous breakdowns later, June 2004 was crunch time for the launch!
 

Almost the entire contents of this site (now well over three thousand pages!) have been lovingly crafted, photographed, video recorded, and designed by Doktor Jons own fair hands, so if you like what you see, it's all been worth it; if you don't like what you see .... well, tough!! :-))
Doktor Jon does not claim to be a web designer, so if you're not keen on the look of the site, send him lots and lots of money, and he'll pay a talented professional to do it properly!!!
 

On a more sensible note, the site has been deliberately designed to be simple and clutter free. Absolutely no cookies (except on the Forum), no 'Flash', no pop ups, just oodles of information and experience, which you simply won't find anywhere else. You can find some general navigation tips on this page., and the various site indexes are listed on this page.


Although this site was officially launched on June 1st 2004, it is very much a "work in progress", so if any bits are missing or the odd page could do with a bit of a tidy up, my apologies for any shortcomings. If you find any broken links, or have any great ideas or suggestions please don't hesitate to get in touch - your comments will always be welcome
