Raytec logoSummer is coming to a close which means the days of it staying light out until 9 p.m. are getting less and less, before you know it you will have to start turning your headlights on at 5 p.m. on your way home from work. These earlier dark days also mean that artificial lighting is going to start becoming one of the main deterrents  to criminals.

That is why CCTV lighting experts Raytec have already released dates for their Autumn series of training webinars. These webinars are free to attend and are specifically designed to give security professionals the chance to catch up on all the new technologies as well as the latest techniques in system design in order to optimize lighting performance on-site.

Whether you are using infrared or white light, these webinars will offer practical tips and guidelines in order to help you maximize the night-time performance of your surveillance system as well as aid the specification of the best fit-for-purpose general lighting.

On Wednesday, September 7th check out the “Comparing Lighting Specifications” webinar. This webinar is designed to make the lighting design and specification process easier and to make users more informed. In addition to that, it will also allow security professionals to understand the differences between LED lighting and other technologies, effectively assess a range of different LED illuminators and their features and understand what features are necessary for different installations.

This webinar will also compare LED lighting against thermal imaging and bullet cameras and even give an in-depth look into the technologies behind controlling LED lifetime, specifying illumination distances, power levels and measuring light.

Wednesday, October 5th plays host to the “Lighting Fundamentals – Understanding the Basics” webinar. This webinar will give security professionals a better understanding of the principles of lighting, allowing the specification, installation and use of lighting to be more informed and achieve better nighttime images.

This session will also explore light and surface, brightness and glare, color rendering and images, reflectance and lenses and using the inverse square law to deploy multiple illuminators. In addition to that, this webinar also considers lighting as part of a system, explaining how the light emitted from an illuminator travels to the destination, reflects off of a surface and travels back to the camera sensor via the lens.

The final webinar will take place on November 2nd and is the “Insider Knowledge – Set-up Tips to Get the Most from Your Installation” webinar. Lighting has become an integral part of modern security camera systems and the performance and feature-sets of LED illuminators are rapidly developing.

In this session, engineers from Raytec will advise how to install illumination as well as how to exploit some of the more advanced features for real performance benefits. This webinar will also explore advanced techniques for designing lighting for major systems, including lighting for network cameras, domes, pulsed lighting and remote control systems.

If you are a security professional, then you will definitely want to check out Raytec’s webinars. They will be highly educational and will give you a lot of great information on how to maximize illumination to get the most out of your security system.
