New York in November
Next week, I’ll be traveling to New York City to attend ISC Solutions -- now part of Security Week -- the northeast security event for dealers, integrators, installers and end users. Security Week encompasses four events: ISC Solutions, Securing New Ground, Security 500 and Security Week Gala. Many of the exhibitors already unveiled their newest products and services in September at ASIS so the slower-paced, more-intimate ISC Solutions is perfect for networking with industry colleagues and catching up on the latest company news.
The Security Industry Association and the InterPort Police will host the Security Week Gala on November 2, 2011, at the Lighthouse on Chelsea Pier 61. The Fred V. Morrone Memorial 9/11 Award and The George R. Lippert Memorial Award will be presented at the event. Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano will receive The Fred V. Morrone Memorial 9/11 Award for significantly contributed to making the world safer and contributed in protecting us form terrorist act.. Steve Roth, CEO of Tri-Ed/Northern Video Distribution, will recieve The George R. Lippert Memorial Award for making outstanding contributions to the security industry and SIA.
I also reserved a visitor’s pass for entrance to the National September 11 Memorial. I'm going to pay my respects, admire the engineering marvel of the two giant fountains -- the largest manmade waterfalls in North America -- that sit within the footprints of the Twin Towers and see SightLogix’s outdoor video system in action.

SightLogix, a supplier of outdoor area and perimeter security video systems, deployed its outdoor video system to protect the World Trade Center’s perimeter. The solution includes Thermal and Visible SightSensor video analytic cameras, Clear24 thermal cameras that use image processing to provide highly detailed thermal images in all weather condition, SightTracker automated PTZ/dome camera controllers for target identification, and SightMonitor coordination and GPS target location topology map display software. Portable solutions include the Video Security Trailer, a self-contained rapidly deployable perimeter security solution for temporary or long-term surveillance applications, and the Rapid Deployment Kit for first responders.
"SightLogix was founded to create an effective outdoor video analytic solution after observing video technology limitations at Ground Zero shortly after 9-11," said John Romanowich, president and CEO of SightLogix, in a press release. "We are honored to have our vision fulfilled through our selection to secure this key national asset."
It’s going to be a great show. See you there!
