Megapixel Revolution at Ifsec 2008

By: Dipol

This fair enjoys excellent reputation both among exhibitors and visitors, so it is not affected by the decline of world exhibitions. The whole exhibition space is reserved long before the event. This edition will draw all major companies dealing with security issues.

The perfect location of the exhibition (the whole complex includes Birmingham airport and railroad station) makes the fair more accessible for the public - there are expected more than 30,000 visitors this year. High reputation of the fair is the result of hard work of its organizers. It is recognized as one of the best prepared fairs in the world. Permanent and often updated website promotes the exhibitors all year round. Early enough announced conferences and lectures attract many participants. Clear division of exhibition space into sections makes it easy for visitors to find what they are looking for.

This year the main topics include: RFID & Smartcards, Counter Terror, Access Control and Security Solutions, CCTV Village, IP & Networks, Security Guarding & Support Services, Intruder Alarms & Physical Security, Fire Solutions. Due to participation of all major manufacturers, the fair is an indicator of technological developments and trends for the near future.

Looking through advertisements in magazines and fair announcements, we may expect in video surveillance technology:

* significant increase of the share of megapixel cameras. Wider use of these cameras will gradually supplant speed dome cameras

* migration to MPEG-4 with H.264 codec in all IP CCTV devices including DVRs

* dominance of WDR sensors in analog cameras
