  • Concentrates power into too few hands
  • Marks a new corporate era

On deck:

Coming up in the November/December 2012 issue of SP&T News

The surveillance side of security has long promised more information and better real-time analysis when it comes to interpreting camera data. We check in with leading vendors to gauge their product offerings and see if the "free with purchase" solutions are worth hanging on to or if third-party add-ons are still the go-to option for end users.

Licence plate recognition:
It's widely regarded as a police and parking tool, but the field of LPR has grown beyond expectations. Find out how it's being used today and how it might be used tomorrow.

Event management:
