Organisers of Security & Counter Terror Expo, the UK’s leading national security event, have announced the launch of a unique live technology showcase at its 2018 event.
The Integrated Security Showcase will feature a live security operations centre where visitors can see innovative technologies, solutions and services in action, helping them to identify unique solutions that can be used in a variety of installations to tackle the latest security threats.
A carefully curated array of products will be displayed in the area, with facial recognition, hostile vehicle identification, cyber threat mitigation, intrusion detection, perimeter protection, CCTV, video surveillance and biometric solutions all working in harmony.
Among the suppliers taking part in the new Integrated Security Showcase are Bosch Security Systems, Custom Consoles, HARP Visual Communication Solutions, Frontier Pitts, Warrior Doors, Technocover, Fast Lane Turnstiles and Zenus Biometrics, who will each unveil their latest technologies, solutions and services.
Warrior Doors will bring its market leading, communal entrance and high security doors systems to the new show feature, while Zenus Biometrics’ facial authentication software will show visitors how its facial recognition can be easily integrated with existing hardware to offer the fastest and easiest check-in solution by identifying key personnel by searching a database of faces in real-time.
Custom Consoles will demonstrate its security control room desks and video monitor mounting systems. The manufacturer of project-specific and modular broadcast, process-control and security furniture will provide one of its SteelBase control desks for use within the showcase, which can be easily configured to provide an ergonomically efficient working environment for any size of control room.
Harp Visual Communications Solutions’ complex audio-visual solutions will also be on display, with the company demonstrating how multiple image sources can be integrated and displayed on one continuous screen surface – all processed through its own video wall processor, MERLIN.
Also joining the Integrated Security Showcase, Bosch Security Systems – a leading global supplier of technology and services – will provide its video management and CCTV systems, while Fast Lane Turnstiles will introduce its high-tech entrance control systems for pedestrian throughput. Revealing how security professionals can defend and prevent threats from unauthorised drones, Drone Detection Systems will demonstrate its drone detection and intervention solutions, designed to detect all type of civilian drones (RPAS, UAS).
In addition, Technocover will supply a cutaway mesh cage unit to emphasise the benefits of physical security access solutions, used to protect specific assets, Frontier Pitts will underline the essential role its security barriers play in regulating and restricting vehicle access, and Chemring Technology Solutions will show visitors how its VehicleScan technology can identify foreign objects concealed under vehicles.
Speaking about the Integrated Security Showcase, David Thompson, Event Director, Security and Counter Terror Expo, said: “This new feature is a unique, interactive learning environment designed to educate security system integrators, architects, consultants and end users looking to protect and secure critical assets from potential threats. It will offer exhibitors a chance to reveal the latest technologies live to an audience of senior buyers, while offering visitors a unique insight into real-time operations and the chance to discuss the ever-evolving range of threats, operational strategies and technologies to shape future policy.”
