Educating the CCTV industry since 1988 

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 even test your system, then we are here to help.

We conduct easy-to-understand seminars on the subject of Closed Circuit Television  and associated technologies, based on the world’s most recognised books on CCTV, presented by the author himself - Vlado Damjanovski.

Closed Circuit Television (also referred to as IP Video Surveillance), is a modern video technology used in many aspects of modern life, from security and safety and monitoring manufacturing processes. CCTV is now found on mining sites, educational sites and in the medical sector.

​

This is a complex technology comprising optics, cameras, displays, compression, networking, computing and storage sciences. Based on my four best-seller books on CCTV, I am here to offer you enlightening seminars to help  demystify these technologies.

​

The duration  of a typical seminar is 2 to 3 days, which covers the complete book content, and includes plenty of time for Q&A. At the end of the seminar, all attendees receive a certificate signed by the author as well as an electronic version of the book

​

Check the syllabus page to see if we have covered your topics of interest and add or remove topics of your own choosing.

(You may also get a discounted offer on our made-specially-for-CCTV test charts and you can also bring your own copy of the book "CCTV - from light to pixels" for a personalised autograph.)

"I came all the way from Hong Kong to Singapore, just to hear you and learn from you. Fantastic seminar, thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience."

​

"I attended one important Physics lesson today. From the concept of SI units of measurement to the spectrum of wavelength, I struggled to recall many of these ideas which I learnt many years ago during my school days. Back then, the drive for learning and understanding Physics was to pass my exam :). Today, I was convinced by Vlado Damjanovski (founder of ViDi Labs) that understanding Physics is the key to comprehending CCTV and its application. I look forward to the Day 2 program tomorrow." 

Dex Yan, CPP, MBA,

“I truly think your book is one of the best around from a technical slant. There is very little out there about CCTV and a lot of mis-information or shall we say grey areas on specifications for cameras and your book and articles offer advise from an independent point of view.” 

Pat Moore  

Baxall, UK 

​

In my 30 years of teaching, I have trained many professionals, end users, installers, managers, consultants and manufacturers.

They all learned something new and important for their business.

​

A large number of professionals are very knowledgable in many areas, but like any human being, they have knowledge gaps in other areas. 

​

I have spent nearly 45 years of my professional life studying, working with, designing, testing and developing products and technologies in CCTV. As a result, I have the experience and the ability to pass such knowledge onto others - simply, systematically and efficiently.  

​

This was the reason I wrote my first book on CCTV when, in 1995, there were few books on the subject to be found. 

​

My books grew out of this lack of materials and the ever changing CCTV technologies. 

​

Also, this was the reason for having four editions of the book, each one of them including additional and new technologies to the previous ones.

​

My customers have used the Syllabus page to decide what topics they feel would suit their outcomes and those topics not needed. In addition, they’ve added some new and interesting topics that I easily  included in the seminar. 

​

If needed, we can even design a new seminar based on your specific needs, such as my recent one on Video Content Analytics held in Singapore (2018.)

E-mail me your requirements and let’s discuss options.
