So would you like to play "Spot the CCTV Camera?". Eagle eyed visitors may recognise the profusion of street furniture, surrounding a single heritage dome camera keeping watch over part  of Londons' prestigious Oxford Street shopping area.

CCTV Industry 'News in Brief' - January & February 2007


2007 seems to be the year for anniversaries, with the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) due to celebrate 40 years of success; the Canadian Security Association celebrating 30 years, the UK's Neighbourhood Watch movement having a 25th birthday, and ALAS, the Latin American Security Association who provide CCTV training for their members in Mexico, celebrating their 10th year of operations.

New from Pelco this month, the latest version of their integrated dome camera units, the Camclosure IS, provides five different pre assembled case designs, each offered with five camera / optic combinations, to suit practically any conditions .
With imaging packages that range from standard resolution colour, through high resolution, wide dynamic and day / night operation, users can select the exact performance package to suit their needs. Transmission options include composite unbalanced, or balanced UTP connections, with an additional service video output as standard.

The latest additions to JVC Professional Europe's camera range, are four true Day / Night models, with switchable IR cut filter. Providing 540 line resolution and low light performance down to 0.4 lux colour (0.05 lux B/W), the models TK - C 925E & 926E, along with the TK - C1530E & 1531EG units, have been introduced with a host of new features, including switchable output for LCD or CRT displays, dynamic focus adjustment, privacy masking, and a 'scene memory' function on the 1500 series, which is particularly suited to applications such as ANPR.

Also new for 2007, JVC Professional Europe's VN - C625U IP Network dome camera has been incorporated into a rapid deployment camera system, which features 3G mobile phone (cellphone) transmission technology.

The system which has been engineered by Clearview Communications, based in Chelmsford , Essex, U.K., is particularly suited to providing remote coverage of areas prone to crime and anti social behaviour.

Working on the principle that "the proof of the pudding is in the eating', Bosch Security Systems recently held a camera demonstration event, at a Water Ski Club adjacent to it's Denham HQ. Throughout the event, invited guests including consultants, specifiers and end users, were able to see the company's complete range of Dinion cameras, working under a wide range of diverse lighting conditions.
