What is IFSEC?
Taking place on the 13-16 May 2013 at the NEC Birmingham, IFSEC International is the largest event for the security industry, bringing together the entire security buying chain in one place.
Here at Flatvision our innovative ‘UltraVision Thin-Bezel’ video wall display solutions provide an incredible visual experience for anyone viewing the displays, designed to provide the best video solution possible for CCTV and broadcast applications, where image quality is the overriding factor.
Following on from the popularity of our ‘UltraVision’ Range of high end metal-cased CCTV displays, we have developed a new range of larger format Thin-Bezel solutions, which can be individually wall-mounted or tile-mounted in landscape or portrait format dependant upon the application.
Providing full HD-Resolution these displays available in sizes 40″ and 46″ have been designed for continuous 24/7 operation, with a high-brightness 700cd/m LCD panel and ultra-thin front bezel making them an ideal solution for tile-mounting as a video wall within a City Centre control room environment where reliability, robustness and high image quality is critical.
As standard all of our video wall displays have Composite Video (BNC), VGA (PC), DVI & YPbPr inputs, providing a variety of input configurations to suit every application.
If you would like to find out more about our Video Wall displays and whether they could suit your application please have a look at our website, or alternatively please feel free to contact one of our highly experienced Sales Team over the phone: (01782) 567979 or in an email and we will respond to you as soon as possible.
Ten specific routes have been initially targeted, with the CCTV cameras recording the number plates of any vehicle using the bus lanes.
All registration plates captured are then compared to a database of allowed vehicles, not least emergency services, taxis, and specific allowed drivers.
Any vehicles caught on camera using the bus lanes during operational hours, without permission, will be a sent a £60 fine.
Councillor Gordon Mackenzie said: “Bus lanes allow public transport to flow more easily around the city and get to their destination as quickly as possible, but this only happens if they are kept clear of other vehicles.

Typically Public Viewing Monitors are seen at the entrance points to ‘Department Stores’, ‘Supermarkets’ and ‘DIY Stores’ to act as a visible deterrent to reduce store theft or retail shrinkage.
This “All in One” Professional CCTV LCD Monitor incorporates an invisible high performance camera and media player within the case of the monitor,
We typically use a “Wide Dynamic Range” high performance PIXIM camera to ensure that we record the best CCTV images even from very well lit heavily backlight areas where making peoples faces with traditional CCD base cameras is virtually impossible.
Pixims WDR camera utilities their patented “Digital Pixd System” technology to give you the best image capture results currently available.
The media player within our PVM monitors can run images, slide shows and photos from a SD/CF memory card in order that you can not only record the publics activity at store entrances but also send out promotional and information messages, making the PVM monitor a very versatile system.
For an in depth chat on how our PVM monitors could be used in your application, please give our specialised CCTV team a call on (01782) 567979 or alternatively please send us an email and one of our team will respond to you as soon as possible.

Are you a security professional that needs the best image quality and reliability possible from a professional CCTV LCD Monitor?
The Edinburgh Licensed Taxi Partnership (ELTP) wants to introduce the cameras to cut down on attacks on drivers, both verbal and physical.
The proposals will go before the City of Edinburgh Council’s regulatory committee later this year.
Plans would see three cameras being installed in each vehicle and would only be put in if the driver wanted it.
The chairman of the ELTP, Les McVay, believes the CCTV would help decrease the number of attacks on drivers.
He told the Evening News: “CCTV would help to protect the driver and the public. It would defuse a lot of hotspot situations – if somebody knows they are going to be recorded, they might think twice about taking the incident further.

Systems used to detect aircraft and ships could soon be fitted in train stations to quickly identify objects — or even people — that have fallen on the tracks, preventing serious accidents and reducing delays that are frequently caused by these mishaps.
Used in conjunction with CCTV, which can often blur or become obstructed, a radar device could quickly identify luggage items that regularly fall off station platforms and in the event of a person falling on the tracks, feedback to a system that stops oncoming trains and cuts the high voltage of the lines.
The detection system, demonstrated on January 6, in IOP Publishing’s journal Measurement Science and Technology, sends ultra wideband radio waves towards objects and then records them as they bounce back, revealing the intricate characteristics of the object in question.
“The aim of the system is to identify any objects or persons that may have fallen onto the tracks. In a large, capital city underground, this can happen two to three times a week and lead to significantly long service interruptions.
“With the possibility of trains, passengers and even poor lighting, in some instances, obscuring the view of CCTV cameras, radar techniques could certainly be effective in these scenarios,” said lead author Ali Mroué.
The researchers, from IFSTTAR and IEMN, in the framework of the Université Lille Nord de France, used an Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) procedure whereby the characteristics of an object are defined and then trimmed down so only the most important ones are stored. The characteristics are then compared to those of other objects on a database, with the overall classification depending on the degree of similarity.

These are some of the research projects that will be the focus of a major UK cyber-security centre launched today.
The new £25 million Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT), based at Queen’s University Belfast, is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the Technology Strategy Board, Queen’s University Belfast and a range of partner organisations.
CSIT is unique because it brings together, under one roof, cutting-edge expertise in data security, network security, wireless network enabled systems and surveillance intelligence systems.
Harnessing this expertise, CSIT will help pioneer the concept of converged security – the use of IT systems to improve people’s physical security while protecting the systems themselves to ensure they can’t be hacked into.
CSIT is one of the first Innovation and Knowledge Centres to be established in the UK.
