In recent years, CCTV has become a more prevalent topic of conversation, featuring in national and international media, particularly in high-profile investigations. The Security Institute, in its latest Good Practice Guide, supported by the manufacturer Dallmeier UK, brings the subject up to date by detailing procurement, good management and legislation that managers of such systems need to be aware of. This guide has sought to provide a definitive resource to address the requirements when looking at this area of security.
Image quality and integrity are of the highest importance in any CCTV system. The quality of an image is directly related to the constituent components, from the camera through to the recorder and, if applicable, the monitoring. All of these topics and more are covered in this excellent guide which has been written by CCTV experts who are members of the Institute.
Led by CCTV trainer Gordon Tyerman with fellow Institute members, this guide is for practicing or aspiring security professionals who manage CCTV systems or are involved in their procurement. Written in simple language, the guide is designed to demystify some of the more technical and legislative issues. This guide was launched on the Wednesday of IFSEC, on the Dallmeier stand. Copies cost Institute members £15; for others, £25. Visit www.security-institute.org and phone 08453 707717.
