IFSEC in photos: Day 2

Oops, I guess we're a little slow on the Day 2 IFSEC photos, but yes, the camera was still working. Tuesday packed a real punch, allowing me to get much deeper into the aisles of the tradeshow floor and to meet with some scheduled press appointments...


Oops, I guess we're a little slow on the Day 2 IFSEC photos, but yes, the camera was still working. Tuesday packed a real punch, allowing me to get much deeper into the aisles of the tradeshow floor and to meet with some scheduled press appointments. Here's a look at the technology and flavor of the show.

JVC booth with megapixel surveillance camera

JVC's IP camera line is getting stronger, and in the top of this photo, you can see an as yet unreleased camera that provides megapixel imaging, so I'm told.

Visual Defence Command Centre

Simon Jerome, V.P. of sales and marketing (Europe and Canada) for Visual Defence was demonstrating their 3C (Command and Control Centre) video and integration platform.

Stanley iPAC

I popped by the Stanley booth to have a look at their iPAC system, a nifty acess control system for up to 16 doors. Simplicity is the key here.

SeeTec robot with cameras

See Tec had an eye-grabbing metal robot-like structure at their stand. The company provides video surveillance management software.

Axis camera M3011-3014

An afternoon press conference at Axis Communications highlighted this can-style camera that snaps into a hole in a drop ceiling and can be installed in less than a few minutes.

Keri Systems NetXtreme access control

Hitachi VeinID hardware

Slowly, I'm giving up my biometric information to every firm on this planet. At tradeshows, I'm always being enrolled as a test subject as part of a demonstration of on-display biometric systems. Who knows how many companies have my fingerprints now... And after stopping by Hitachi's demonstration of the VeinID finger vein recognition solution, I can proudly say that my veins are now on file in some random computer. Neat system, though.

Video gaming at the DualCom booth

Kicking back at DualCom's booth playing Sega Rally. Surprisingly, I came across another booth that had a full-size video game console for weary tradeshow attendees...

More to come from Day 3...stay tuned.
