Brick, NJ (April 26, 2007)–Education. Education. Education. It´s a common refrain heard from manufacturers, customers, installers and system integrators regarding ways in which security professionals can upgrade their knowledge and skills to meet the demands of a changing industry. To this end, North American Video (NAV), a leading security systems integrator, and a premier provider to the gaming industry, was recently invited by the 2007 ISC West Education Program to provide a tour of its systems integration facility in Las Vegas for security professionals interested in obtaining practical systems integration knowledge.

"Education programs, such as those offered by Reed Exhibitions at ISC West, provide valuable and practical information to help meet the challenges of continually improving one´s knowledge and expertise," said Cynthia Freschi, President of North American Video. "Our offering–a comprehensive tour of our systems integration facility in Las Vegas? extended an opportunity for participants to gain firsthand knowledge and insight to the big picture of implementing cross-disciplinary security systems."

The system integrator visit, along with a tour of the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino, were optional conference packages offered by ISC Education.

According to Rich Billington, NAV´s Director of Operations, Western Region, two tours of 35 persons each attended the session at NAV´s Las Vegas facility, hosted by Billington.

"We offered the tour for the first time last year and were pleased to be asked again this year," said Billington. "It was really an eye opener for some of the people attending and they had a lot of questions about system integration as well as NAV and its history."

The tour included demonstrations of various vendors´ products, including North American Video´s 360° surveillance camera system, and a manufacturer-presented demonstration of digital recording, analytics and management solutions from VidSys. As well, attendees learned of the processes involved from start to finish in implementing an integrated and networked security system.

"Classroom sessions and panel discussions are basic to any educational program," said Cynthia Holloway, Director of Industry Development, Reed Exhibitions. "However, NAV´s Las Vegas facility provided an ideal situation for security professionals to learn through a practical experience. "
