Stewart says Vemotion can play a major role in assisting UK and other border forces
Thirsk based global wireless video transmission specialists Vemotion believes the recent scenes in Calais highlight just how crucial intuitive security systems are in our modern world.
Hundreds of migrants attempted to board lorries stuck in queues due to French ferry worker strikes, leading to tense contact between the migrants and police. Worryingly, members of the public were also at danger, with lorry drivers and others stuck in the traffic threatened by those attempting to gain entry to the UK.
Selecting correct security systems
Vemotion’s CEO Stewart McCone believes these scenes illustrate just how important security systems are and how all forms of agencies can benefit from the correct technology.
“Day to day we see examples of how important CCTV and security systems are to our towns and cities,” said Stewart. “But sometimes we see high profile media stories such as this which really hit home why appropriate, sensitive security systems are so integral to stability in our modern world, protecting national and international borders, for example.”
Border security with detection technology
Vemotion specialises in compression and transmission of quality live video over wireless and wired networks meaning central staff can not only see but securely share all footage between agencies. What’s more, footage can be shared directly to and from vehicles, smartphones, tablets and body worn units meaning agencies can be kept up to date in real time. Vemotion can offer both blue light and general security applications, ensuring seamless use and maximum security for all.
Following the UK’s announcement of extra security measures at ports in northern France and Belgium, including a £2m upgrade in detection technology along with a spend of £12m spread over three years for security at the port of Calais, Stewart says Vemotion can have a major role to play in assisting UK and other border forces.
“Our products guarantee military grade capabilities, in any environment - meaning everyone involved in scenes like Calais can benefit. All of our data is safeguarded by Vemotion’s secure architecture as well, with a large degree of flexibility for users, too.”
