'Green' CCTV system from Sanyo

Luton, UK

XZ-400

Sanyo will be demonstrating a solar powered CCTV system at IFSEC that can be installed virtually in the middle of nowhere as it does not need to rely on an external electricity supply.


"What makes this possible is that we are able to use Sanyo manufactured solar panels which are acknowledged to be among the most efficient in the world," says Andy Aitchison, Sanyo's national sales manager "Long term covert surveillance is just one of the applications that could benefit from our solar panelled CCTV system."

Also on display on the Sanyo stand will be the full range of cameras equipped with pan focus optics. Pan focus utilises a unique technology that enables a camera to focus on all objects in the field of view. With a huge depth of field, clear images are consistently generated without any need to adjust the focus.

Big changes ahead for access control market

Following our recent reports on the Kaba and Dorma merger, and now with the news that Allegion plans to acquire Simonsvoss from HgCapital.  Blake Kozak, Principal Analyst for Security and Building technologies at IHS, predicts that this latest merger may again reshape the access-control market in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). The merger of Allegion and Simonsvoss would immediately create the second largest company in the EMEA region, after the market leader, Assa Abloy. The merged Kaba and Dorma would then rank third in the region.  But it has to be pointed out that this most recent merger still requires approval, by the German Bundeskartellamt, which prohibited a planned merger of Assa Abloy and Simonsvoss back in 2008.
