Tavcom day

The training company Tavcom recently ran an Education Information Day, at its training centre in Bishops Waltham in rural Hampshire.

The 50-plus delegates representing industry associations, institutions, local authorities, police and security industry employers, took in presentations on a range of subjects including analytics, forensics, cyber security and the importance of new international standards.

Paul Tennent, Managing Director of Tavcom, said: “Our Education Information Day has become an annual event and we know from the feedback provided by delegates that they highly value the overview provided by our expert speakers on how to best capitalise on the latest generation of electronic security solutions, as well as the insight provided on future trends.”

Among the speakers was the consultant and trainer Jon Laws, pictured. With the market for IP network based video surveillance systems growing almost exponentially, Jon shared his knowledge on how to extend the life of an analogue system, by introducing hybrid solutions while starting the process of migrating to an IP network based solution. Jon also gave a view of the technologies which are likely to be integrated into tomorrow’s security systems.

Daren Wildgoose delivered an update on cyber security and data breaches, to combat the very real and active risk that can threaten a business’ resources and reputation; and Paul Fletcher offered an ARC ‘insider’ picture of the most effective way of providing a technical ‘fit for purpose’ solution.

Peter Mason, an IP/Networking specialist, shared his vision on the future of the optical world and what is on the horizon for Video Over IP, with a section of his presentation addressing the threat of cyber crime to IP Version 6.

It is 20 years since Mike Tennent founded Tavcom. Having witnessed and kept pace with the many changes over the years, Mike gave an update on the latest CCTV/VSS Standards, and addressed some questions including why CCTV is changing, why the new international standards are so important and who needs to know about them. After a buffet lunch provided by the CCTV manufacturer Eneo, who sponsored the day, delegates took a tour of the Tavcom CCTV control room operators’ testing area and workshops, and saw demonstrations of CCTV, intruder alarm, access and IP.
