9:45 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. Speaker: James Marcella - Director of Technical Services, Axis Communications
Presentation Title: "Technology and Crisis Management Tools: Active Shooter"
Description: Three first responders will weigh in on what technology advancement improvements have worked for them in recent critical events. Learn techniques and tools that work in a more secure and speedy manner in crisis situations. Workplace violence is one of the most popular and difficult problems today. How do you use threat assessment together with technology? When was the last time you conducted an emergency exercise? If the answer is greater than six months, you are at risk and you are also not alone. Learn how to test and model emergencies – testing is the cheapest insurance you can buy!
The presentation shows how Public Safety is addressed by IP Security Technology in areas such as:
- Video surveillance in workplace violence and active shooter situations
- The role of mobile surveillance
- The “instant” review: fast access of meaningful data in real time
10:30 a.m. - 10.40 a.m. Coffee Break with Exhibits Open
10:40 a.m. - 11:25 a.m. Speaker: Charles Foley, Chief Executive Officer, TimeSight Systems
Presentation Title: "Supporting Today's High Resolution IP Networks: Storage Technologies to Manage Both Data and the Budget"
Charles FoleyDescription: The surveillance world has seen a number of key trends in recent years, including rising camera counts for better coverage, rapid rise in resolutions (due to technology commoditization) to give better video data, and ever-extending retention times due to regulatory or best-practice requirements. These factors have pushed storage of video surveillance data to becoming a dominant cost factor for the security professional. The result: tight budgets that have to accommodate more and more storage to simply get the job done.

This session will focus on technology approaches brought across from the information technology (IT) world to allow users to manage down the cost and infrastructure needed to support this growing amount of data from larger numbers of higher resolution cameras. Different approaches and technologies used to manage the lifecycle of video data will be reviewed, with the aim of providing tools to allow security professionals to reduce the cost of storing video data as that video ages and becomes less valuable to the business. Leveraged properly, these approaches to video data management can reduce storage requirements by 60 - 90%, allowing significant infrastructure reductions and budget re-allocation to other, high-return items such as increased camera coverage, analytics, and biometrics.

11:25 p.m. - 12:15 p.m. Speaker: Steven Rea - Business Development Manager, MOBOTIX AG
Presentation Title: "Megapixel Video Implemented with Decentralized Concept and Hemispheric Technology"
Description: Megapixel CCTV cameras have changed the landscape of video surveillance. This requires innovation in hardware as well as processing of the video. The following presentation takes a look at decentralized concept architecture for a video surveillance system and the advantages it provides over the traditional centralized approach.
This presentation will address the following subjects:
- LowRes vs. HiRes
- Cost Analysis
- Flash Recording
- Hemispheric Technology
12:15 p.m. - 1:15 p.m. Complimentary Buffet Lunch - Dine with your Peers and Join in on the Conversation! !Dine with your Peers and Join in on the Conversation

Speaker: Wade Norman - Director of Sales, IQinVision 
Presentation Title: "The Texas Department of Aging and Disability Project - Protecting Texas´s Most Vulnerable Citizens"
Description: The Mission of the Texas Department of Aging and Disability (DADS) is to provide a comprehensive array of aging and disability services, support, and opportunities that can be easily accessed in local communities. In recent years, it came to light that DADS was falling short in fulfilling its mission. In June 2009, the Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 643, requiring that video surveillance equipment be installed in all DADS facilities for the purpose of detecting and preventing the exploitation or abuse of residents and clients.
DADS administers long-term service and support at 12 campuses throughout Texas. DADS also licenses and regulates providers of these services. The DADS installation, commencing in January 2010, utilizes IQinVision HD megapixel cameras, OnSSI Ocularis video management software, Zyxel network switches, and Dell Servers to provide the interactive video-monitoring interface.
The installation comprises more than 3,200 H.264 HD megapixel cameras installed in 336 buildings on the 12 campuses. The project two IQeye models of cameras, and an end-to-end network infrastructure with 35 miles of fiber optic cable to connect all the buildings together on each campus. Hugman and Norman will present the DADS case study, outlining project objectives and proposed solutions and how Knight and IQinVision won this high-profile contract by offering a scalable solution using new technology that achieved DADS’ security goals while saving the state money. 
2:00 p.m. - 2:45 p.m. Speaker: Dr. Ed Wassall - Director IP Product Development, Samsung Techwin
Presentation Title:  "IP DNA: The Art of Video Network Design"
Description: This presentation focusses on the gotcha's associated with good scalable design practice while taking into consideration the “marketechture” as related to plug and play.  
2:45 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. Speaker: John Harvey - Regional Sales Manager, March Networks  
Presentation Title: "Browser Based IP Video Surveillance and Why IT Loves It"
Description: While video security technology has advanced significantly in the last few years, one area that still remains largely untouched is the development of lightweight client applications for enterprise surveillance systems. Creating solutions that motivate security decision-makers to adapt to newer video surveillance technologies has been the focus for many, but as IP-based security video budgets increasingly fall into the hands of Information Technology (IT) departments, isn’t it time to target what IT managers really want?
Web-based and virtualization solutions – while not new to IT departments – are still uncommon within the IP video surveillance industry. In this discussion, you will learn about a new, browser-based enterprise IP video surveillance solution that can differentiate your business with its IT-focused, standards-based design and functionality.
3:30 p.m. - 4:15 p.m. Speaker: Jason Canada - Director Product Management, 3VR , ,
Presentation Title: "Transform Value of Video with Video Analytics"

Description: Getting projects approved in a challenging economic environment requires a strong business case driven by the ability to grow the business. An open platform that can meet the critical security requirements of searching terrabytes of video in seconds, build cases quickly and provide business and security alerting are minimum requirements. Transform the value of video in your organization with new video analytics like customer counting, queue line analysis, advance object tracking and customer not present. These new capabilities will help grow the business by providing video intelligence for marketing, merchandising and customer service and provide access to additional budget to get your project approved.
