Vlado Damjanovski, widely considered to be one of the leading experts in CCTV system design, has announced the impending release of his latest book. Expanding on the work of his previous, highly regarded book CCTV – from light to pixels,’ released in 2014, this newest version will include a multitude of updates around new technology, trends and practices.
“Technology changes at a fast pace, and seven years since the last edition is a long time in the development of CCTV technologies.” states Damjanovski. “This calls for new chapters on many topics, including VMS and the cloud concepts, AI and Video Content Analytics, the new 62676 standards, new compression algorithms, thermal imaging, and so much more.”
With over 600 pages, fully illustrated and well explained, the new book will be a reference manual for many years to come. Thhe book is aimed at both current and future industry professionals including system integrators, consultants, installers, distributors, manufacturers, government organisations, tertiary and technical students.
According to the author, while book has been primarily written for the security and video surveillance markets, this latest version will be equally useful for all involved in the development of modern AI algorithms based on video, autonomous driving, robotics, manufacturing, traffic monitoring centres, medical research, maritime industries, astronomy and much more.
Damjanovski goes on to explain “After working in the industry for over 38 years, this will be my ‘swan-song’ . I have signed an agreement with the Australian Security Industry Association (ASIAL) to produce the new book, and I thank them for their generous support in this project. I am especially excited that the English language rights of this book, for both printed and electronic versions, will be owned by an Australian company, rather than an American publisher, like with the previous three editions.”
The book is due to be launched in the middle of 2022 so get in early and pre-book your signed copy with a special discount, via ASIAL (asial.com.au).
