Commentary and Opinions

By Richard Brent

It’s 2014 and time for a new way of thinking when it comes to security. It’s kind of like our five senses, we have each one for a reason and they are all equally valuable. We need to start giving audio the same amount of attention that we give video when it relates to security. Both audio and video should be on the same playing field but the present reality is that our industry remains focused on video only systems.

The New York City Marathon is the largest in the world. After the 2012 race was canceled due to Superstorm Sandy, a record number of runners turned out for the return of the marathon in 2013. More than 50,000 people finished the race, the most ever in any marathon. In addition to the runners, more than two million onlookers lined the 26.2-mile route as it wound through all five of New York City’s boroughs before concluding in Central Park.

In an effort to stay ahead of the ever increasing demands of managing and controlling the world’s vast network of roads, the vehicles that use them and the people that rely on them, law enforcement is turning to transportation vision systems for help. 

Machine-to-machine communications, or M2M, is the automated interchange of information between several machines or between machines and a control center. In more and more areas of business and life, M2M is making entirely new business models possible by simplifying workflows and improving processes. 

M2M takes the big data conversation to new levels because it allows users to collect data, analyze it and gain deeper insights into production and processes. 

The disastrous results of the Boston Marathon bombings are testimony to the ineffectiveness of current security systems to predict and help avert devastating attacks. Although Boston’s security infrastructure was quite effective at post-disaster forensics, enabling the identification and neutralization of two suspects only days after the bombings, the community still had to suffer hundreds of injuries, loss of lives and hundreds of millions of dollars in collateral damage.

Paul Mackler, President of Eagle Eye Expositions, expresses great satisfaction with exhibitor turn-out and quality of the sessions in the 2013 Expo. He gives a lot of credit for the event’s success to his Advisory Board, which included Jason P. Ahern and many other former high-ranking officials in CBP, DEA, ICE and other government agencies. Mackler also announces that the first annual U.S.- Canada Cross Border Conference will take place in Detroit, MI on September 12-13, to help advance the Beyond Border agreement signed by U.S.

Vumii, the Atlanta, GA manufacturer of thermal imaging and illuminated IR cameras, was awarded a Winner’s trophy for “Best Thermal/Night Vision/Infrared Cameras” at the 2012 awards dinner. Primary markets for the cameras, according to President and CEO Randall Foster, are facilities with large, outdoor perimeters to protect, such as airports, seaports, utilities, government sites and military bases.

Kris Pearson describes VIEVU as the world leader in body-worn video technology, with 23,000 customers worldwide. One of the reasons that police officers are now wearing surveillance devices, he asserts, is to capture their interaction with the public through audio and video so that they can prove what they’ve been doing when they’re out of range of the in-vehicle video, which only captures what’s in front of the car.

Eric Ivers gives a demonstration of the RoboteX robot and indicates that they are sold mainly to law enforcement agencies, the military, SWAT teams, Army rangers and the company is presently developing a new market with special ops. He estimates that the RoboteX models are the best priced robots on the market, with a service contract that enables the buyer to have a robot that works all the time.

Peter Onruang explains that the Wolfcom 3rd Eye is more than a body camera -- it’s a multi-purpose, multi-functional tool that is the officer’s best friend, because “it allows you to see what you can’t see”. Because it can see and record what the officer sees, the 3rd Eye can save a lot of expense arising from false allegations. Its 16 megapxiel camera has a high-resolution recorder that can capture up to 17 hours of video, including 6 hours of continuous operation. It also has an audio recorder that can create 500 hours of audio, along with an optional battery that lasts 20 hours.
