Speed Reading

Technicians read once and practise many times.  Professionals read many times and practise once.  How do professionals read a lot more than technicians assuming that both work the same hours a week?  The answer is speed or power reading.  Cigarette, coffee, and drug are not part of the equation.  Weeding is as it enhances consciousness.  This session attempts to offer 3 simple steps to achieve effective speed reading of technical or professional materials. 

Video Analytics and Computer Vision

Compucon has started testing a suite of software applications that analyse images taken by a surveillance camera.  The software is able to determine territory intrusion, for example, among other applications.  Territory intrusion is the same as motion detection by a surveillance camera, but the technique is totally different with video analytics achieving higher accuracy.  Computer Vision is another term to denote the ability of being more descriptive like human eyes than Video Analytics.  This session explains the 3 methods involved, and the ambition of a research project being conducted jointly by Compucon and the University of Auckland.

IPVS Business Outlook

The PC industry has certainly contracted a lot and cloud computing is taking jobs away from IT consultants and service providers gradually leaving 1000 tiny coins on the ground for us to pick up.  We have to look for a blue ocean and we believe IPVS is a blue ocean especially when we are equipped with video analytics and computer modelling later this year.  We intend to introduce a licensing scheme to assist our peers to enter this industry from a different angle to traditional physical security practitioners.  This session will explain how different is the angle, if the difference is sufficient for us to win jobs, and how the licensing scheme operates.   

E-Series Cameras & MIPS Project 

Compucon should have installed and commissioned another IP based surveillance project by the time the seminar takes place.  This new project is being implemented in 4 stages in accordance with the building construction schedule for a small village of 12 houses on Manukau Road in Epsom.  It deploys a new version of video management software and new generation of IP cameras which are characterised with 3MP high resolution, IR LED night vision, and lower cost than the first generation.  We expect to be able to showcase some samples of project implementation in this session.
