Police interest in Vicon’s surveillance system shoots up for the right reasons
Vicon's virtual matrix controller allows IP video streams to be controlled and displayed just as analogue matrices
Vicon reports that its stand at the 2010 HOSDB exhibition and conference attracted a large number of visitors, many of whom were particularly interested in the company's video management systems for police custody suites and prisons. Vicon also reports strong interest in its portable and static vulnerable witness interview recording systems.

Taking place on 16-18th March in Farnborough, the event was organised by the Home Office Scientific Development Branch, a government agency which exists to research and develop science and technology so that both may be effectively deployed by the various law enforcement agencies.

"The manufacturing of surveillance equipment for custody suites and prisons is a major part of our business and this show was therefore very important to us," said Richard Allen-Miles, Vicon's Sales Director for the UK and Ireland. "We were delighted not just with the level of interest from the delegates but also with the opportunity to engage with key figures within the HOSDB to ensure Vicon's thinking in terms of future product requirements is aligned with their own. As the supplier of choice for surveillance systems in the police and prison sector, we are committed to delivering tomorrow's policing requirements as well as today's." 

Vicon's range of IP cameras including the new 2 megapixel camera range was also exhibited



The three day show also gave Vicon the opportunity to demonstrate its specialised cell cameras which incorporate the necessary features essential for providing in-cell monitoring, including privacy masking, IR illumination and of course a high degree of vandal resistance. The police and custodial market sectors have particularly demanding requirements in respect of video recording and Vicon were able to demonstrate its comprehensive range of recording platforms. Also on show were Vicon's range of IP cameras including the new 2 megapixel camera range.

Police and prison authorities are increasingly showing interest in IP/network based video surveillance solutions and Vicon demonstrated its capability in this area with its virtual matrix controller which allows IP video streams to be controlled and displayed in the same way as traditional analogue matrices.
