Standardisation is one of the hottest topics in video surveillance today. GDSF Asia 2010 unites the PSIA, ONVIF and HDcctv Alliance under one roof for unparalleled dialogue. Hear about the latest in video standards and interoperability on April 22.

The panel discussion - "Video Surveillance 2.0: HD Standards and Challenges" - will be moderated by John Shih, Editorial Director of A&S magazines. Panelists from the HDcctv Alliance, PSIA and ONVIF will debate on issues such as what the specifications mean to manufacturers, the pros and cons of megapixel versus HD, and how products are differentiated despite standardisation.

Here are the brief biographies of the three panellists.
