Traveling Seminar Series Teaches Building Blocks of IP Video

Whether you sell, specify, design or manage video surveillance systems, making use of TCP/IP signal transmission for surveillance simply makes more and more sense. IP-based video systems are proving themselves to be incredibly flexible, robust, secure and fully scaleable and allow for video monitoring and management from anywhere in the world.

And while the technology is now ready for deployment, our industry has sorely lacked the proper training in system design, installation and maintenance needed to deploy these network video installations. Fortunately, a number of vendors and education organizations have been launching training programs on this topic.

The latest of these training programs is from video systems vendor Vicon, which will be offering a free, half-day seminar on the subject. The seminar introduces the basic principles and components of designing IP-based systems. It's an opportunity to further your professional growth and learn about a critical technology that is bound to play an increasing role in the security landscape for years to come., Security Technology & Design magazine and Security Dealer magazine are the media sponsors of this 12-city tour.
