Derek Maltby, MD of Global MSC Security says: “There is an important and largely untapped opportunity, for Police forces to take advantage of the investments made by local authorities in to their CCTV networks. For example, it is possible to stream camera footage to Police officers wherever they are, be it a crime scene, on-foot or in a vehicle, the custody suite, or the command and control centre.” He adds: “At the conference this year we will be helping the two parties to come together, to be enlightened to the possibilities. We will link end-users who are actively in the market to purchase security products with suppliers and integrators looking to supply their products and services to our clients.”

Running alongside the conference will be an exhibition including headline sponsor Genetec and event sponsors Bosch, Meyertech, Silent Sentinal, wcctv and 360 Vision Technology. Other exhibitors include AMG, Commend, Comtrol, Digital Barriers, eyevis UK Ltd, Honeywell, IndigoVision, Mytec, Pivot 3, Purdicom, Qognify, RCCU, Redvision, SilverNet, Synectics, The Linx International Group, The Security Institute, Thinking Space and Vicon.
