Reviews

Alan Matchett brings together customers and vendors with a book that lays down the foundation of video surveillance. ...Nontechnical security managers stand to gain the most from this book, specifically the knowledge to communicate effectively with equipment sales personnel. For the equipment vendor, this book should lead to a better understanding of customer needs and perspectives. And anyone else who isn't already fluent in the language of coax, CODECs, and connectors will receive a fine overview. - Security Management
