As always, very well put together- Thanks!

Great handbook, I always keep those on my pc desktop as a guide :)

I think that a versioning history of what has changed, added, removed would be great.

Nicely done and well organized. As a rule I keep these documents on my computer for qucik access. Job well done!

Outstanding work guys.

...we encourage you to replace it with the 2015 version.

Done. Thanks!

Excellent, thank you!

Great work. Would appreciate though if next time you can also talk a bit more about the following subjects:

1. Thermal cameras.

2. What to look for when comparing different Video Management systems.

3. Thermal Radar cameras (I know that this is niche, but I suspect that many integrators will be interested in trying to differentiate themselves via such niche applications).

Just in case you hadn't seen this:

 

Startup: Thermal Radar

What a great benefit of being an IPVM member.  Thanks guys!

 The 2017 Surveillance Camera Book and the 2017 IP network book are very good tools to have! Awesome publications. Thanks IPVM! 

Thanks!

Would like to be able to purchase camera book in hardcopy...wearing out printers

and high cost of paper and ink.

thank you for the book

IPVM team. Thanks from me and our staff. On top of all of the articles, tests and tools, these guides are to notch and keep us security pros in the know. Your services are of great value and much appreciated.

Great book

The part about FOV calculations and the examples is very useful and interesting.

Thank you very much!
