CCTV transmission specialist Vemotion is reporting another set of successful outcomes as a result of attending the British Exhibition of Security Technology at the RAF Museum in Hendon.

“BEST is one of those must attend events for the sectors of the market in which Vemotion operates,” said Stewart McCone, pictured, CEO of the Thirsk-based company. “We attend several exhibitions overseas but these UK events remain very much our bread and butter when it comes to our core markets and business has never been better.”

BEST brings the best of British manufacturers closer to the towns and cities of the UK and allows visitors to view and try the very latest security equipment in a relaxed environment, which is perfectly suited to both the Vemotion approach and product range.

“We always say that with Vemotion, seeing really is believing, so BEST allows us to let visitors get hands on with our products and literally see for themselves,” added Stewart. “Merely talking about the products is not enough. We need to prove they work in practice and exhibitions like BEST allow us to do that, while also meeting up with many of our fellow specialists in the industry.”

Joining Vemotion at the exhibition were several other specialists in the field with who Vemotion has collaborated, including icomply and Ogier Electronics to name just a few. When people think of CCTV, they tend to think of fixed cameras feeding images back to a control room, but BEST allows Vemotion to demonstrate there is very much more to it than that these days.

“People have stereotypical views when it comes to CCTV, but everything from the products, the technology and the way it is deployed has developed in leaps and bounds,” added Stewart. “For Vemotion wireless systems are a speciality. People do tend to think of dropped signals and reliability issues, so they are truly staggered when they see just how powerful this technology has now become.”

Stewart points out a number of examples from the latest body worn technology, overt and covert systems, mobile deployments and much more – all capable of being integrated for use by police, councils and others according to need, thus reducing duplication, delivering matchless reliability and cutting costs rather than coverage at the same time. Other surveillance products Vemotion offer include vehicle based systems, smartphone video apps and pole mounted transmitter kits and much more.

“With the correct modern technology, the opportunities and advantages surveillance can offer is endless,” adds Stewart, “Yet it is only at events like BEST that give us the opportunity to offer practical demonstrations. We received a number of new enquiries from the event and are following up on them now.”
