Vlado Damjanovski, Vidi Labs.

Vlado Damjanovski, the Australian security industry’s foremost CCTV expert, has launched 2 new online training courses, which include 15 hours of training conducted over a 5-day period via Zoom.

The syllabus of each of the courses, Complete CCTV and Practical CCTV, is comprehensive to say the least, covering key areas like light, resolution, colour, transmission, compression, system design, tendering, installation and implementation of IP CCTV systems, choosing VMS, commissioning systems, implementing GDPR, and plenty more.

“If you want to understand how cameras and optics work, demystify compression, get a crash course on IP networking, and learn how to design and test your system – we are here to help,” Damjanovski said.
