Commentary and Opinions

The events of 9/11 shocked us from our complacency and raised our consciousness to the stark and terrifying consequences of security breaches. Technology has come a long way in the intervening decade, especially in the arena of video surveillance, and specifically in the technology of megapixel video.
The most compelling reasons for having video cameras in police cars are to help increase convictions, reduce liability lawsuits and settle citizen complaints. Video can also be an extremely valuable tool in helping administrators identify areas where officer safety training may need to be enhanced or monitor adherence to department policy. 
Traditionally, the Security Industry Association has been a standards developing body, but we recognize that we are not alone in this effort and many other organizations are doing good work on their own standards. However, the only thing worse than having no standards at all is have three standards for the same thing! To that end, SIA has produced a White Paper that describes an approach to harmonizing technical and operational standards among cooperating standards organizations, consortia and forums within the electronic physical security industry.
As IP-based video systems continue to gain widespread popularity in the video surveillance market, one of the benefits is the ability to capture high-resolution images through megapixel video. Also emerging is the use of the HDTV standards that are prevalent in the consumer video market.
As a product-agnostic provider of HSPD-12 compliant design and installation services for physical security systems in federal buildings, our team has learned significant lessons about key phases of most projects. First, it is critical to know the answers to certain questions prior to any design and installation activity. Second, the type of project -- whether it is a remodeling or new construction of federal entities -- can create its own challenges. Third, testing and validation is the final due diligence necessary for a successful system.
