This short course is intended to help the student make use of the features found on modern digital cameras.So often a camera with many features is purchased, and then only ever used on an automatic setting.  A modern mobile phone is not purchased, and then only used to make simple calls; ignoring text messaging, the camera and numerous applications. Why do this with a camera?The two main settings that can be altered, giving so much more control over the image captured, are Aperture and Shutter. This course will cover the Aperture only. However it needs to be remembered that the two are inter-dependent . Read More

This short course, designed for anyone with an interest in IP networks, explains the principles behind providing Quality of Service, with explanations of delay, jitter and loss, presented in an easily digestible and jargon-free manner. Read More

The ubiquitous Router is the workhorse of the Internet. Some estimates put the global total at over 12 million. But exactly what do they do, and how do they do it? This Bite Size Module provides the answers to these and other questions. In this Bite Size Module, we’ll examine the development of the router, from a simple packet switch, to the highly intelligent device we have today.   The fundamentals of a routing protocol Queuing and priority Autonomous Systems Read More

This Video Content Analysis (VCA) course is designed for integrators, installers, specifiers and end users who are considering utilising VCA technology in their video surveillance system projects  Video Content Analysis (VCA) is the process whereby CCTV images are automatically integrated for a particular situation: such as the detection of intruders, people counting, smoke detection or any other situation that can be both seen and accurately defined on a video image, so an alert can be raised. New VCA systems have a wide range of applications and use specialist cameras and VCA tools which can be used to increase the effectiveness and return on investment of CCTV systems by adding enhanced or increased capabilities to detect events and analyse post-event video.   Read More

The commissioning process will verify that a newly-installed system meets both the technical performance of the selected equipment and the operational requirements set out in the early stages of the design process. It is important to review the original design specification and operational requirements prior to writing a commissioning plan. A commissioning plan lays out a step-by-step guide for commissioning a system. It details roles and responsibilities as well as defining the commissioning tasks and a timeline for carrying them out.

Virtual Local Area Networks, or VLANs, are becoming commonplace in the network infrastructure of a communications network. This Bite Size course will look closely at why VLANs are needed, how they are set up and used, and how Quality of Service over Ethernet became a reality. “A limited distance communication system covering an area within a building or a site or a campus, and capable of permitting attached terminals to intercommunicate” is a simple definition of a LAN.
