“A Primer on Electronic Security for Schools, Universities & Institutions” Second Edition is under development for release in Spring 2012.
The Primer, originally published in 2006 by Henry Homrighaus Jr. , is designed to assist educators, engineers, security personnel, and suppliers to address and resolve the issues of potential terrorism or other acts of violence or disruption in our educational institutions.
The Second Edition updates the Primer to include the multitude of changes the security industry has seen in the last three years such as the convergence of Security, IT & Communications and the maturity of the digital video market segment. To update the Primer, the author Henry Homrighaus Jr. added co-authors Frank J. Davies and Greg Bernardo.
Together the team of authors has launched a website to promote the upcoming Second Edition. The website includes a blog which encourages discussion on topics found in the First Edition Primer and seeks to identify additional topics for inclusion in the Second Edition. Digital (IP) video (which was still fairly immature at the first writing) is the first category of discussion in the blog focusing on the topic of H.264 compression.
