YARMOUTH, Maine--United Publications, publishers of Security Systems News, Security Director News, and Security Systems News Europe, will kick off its third annual TechSec Solutions conference Feb. 26, with an exhibitor's dinner at Dallas' Fairmont Hotel. Over the course of the following two days, more than 500 industry professionals will take in an educational program featuring 40 end users, integrators and manufacturers offering their expertise on the migration of the electronic security industry to the TCI/IP protocol environment.
The result of a call for publications held in the summer of 2006, the educational program features high-level executives from Adesta, Johnson Controls, Convergint, Infrastruct, and others teaming with heads of security protecting employees and customers in the retail (Target), corporate (Lehman Brothers), medical (New York Presbyterian Hospital), governmental (City of Ottawa), aviation (Houston Airport), and non-profit (Royal Ontario Museum) fields to explore best practices and the vast new possibilities created by IP-based products and systems. They will be joined on the program by large established manufacturers such as Honeywell, Sony, Axis, Cisco, Verint, HID Global, Fargo, and Tyco, along with up-and-coming high-technology manufacturers like 3VR, Vidient, IndigoVision, and Genetec.
The keynote speaker is Dave Tyson, CSO of the City of Vancouver, who has overseen the integration of the city's IT and physical security departments, made possible by an IP environment.
A show floor will feature product demonstrations by a collection of the manufacturers and integrators working with IP technology. From video to access control to applications of software and hardware that will solve problems people don't know they have yet, conference organizers said even the most veteran industry member ought to find something new and different from the traditional analog security world's classic cameras and panels.
