(TAIPEI, Taiwan) — The 12th SecuTech Expo 2009 featured quality training, with the return of two popular seminars and a brand-new conference.

Global Digital Surveillance Forum


The Global Digital Surveillance Forum highlighted “IP and Intelligence — Future Landscape of Surveillance.” In light of the economic downturn, GDSF Asia 2009 focused on network solutions with added functionality. Security leaders discussed the IP surveillance trends, benefits and applications with system integrators for a meaningful dialogue.

GDSF Asia's keynote speakers included Masatoshi Matsuzaki, Engineering Fellow, IT Solution Division, Engineering Headquarters, Shimizu Corporation, and John Honovich, founder of, a dedicated IP video Web site.

Matsuzaki talked about the real-life benefits and challenges of convergence at his session, “System Integration from Real Experience: Demands on Physical Security.”

For “Examine the Key Strategies to Survive and Thrive in the Recession,” Honovich explored developments in video surveillance for cost-effectiveness, including video analytics, H.264 and megapixel. He also provided tips on generating sales leads in the current depression.

Other speakers included Panasonic System Solutions, Axis Communications, IBM ObjectVideo, VideoTec, Hikvision and ioimage.

The Global Digital Surveillance Forum has consistently been considered a must-attend series for attendees, according to annual participant surveys. Its narrow focus on digital surveillance offers information on the latest security developments.



The first CompoSec — the only international expo for components in security technologies and applications — was held concurrently with SecuTech. CompoSec completes the security supply chain, covering a spectrum of key components ranging from chipsets and modules to subsystems and embedded software.

Component provider Texas Instruments presented, “Why Aren't More IP Cameras Shipping? Secrets to Mass Deployment.” Danny Petkevich, Video Surveillance and Imaging Business Manager, Texas Instruments, discussed how semiconductor improvements influence surveillance product development.

For security, SecuTech is a true one-stop shop. Other exhibitors and seminar speakers include NXP, OmniVision, Micron, Xilinx, Grain Media and more.
