Tango PoE Driven Power Supply/Charger Series with Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery Backup | #TpromoCom #Altronix #Battery #POE | is an industry game-changing power solution that allows 12VDC and 24VDC devices to be powered simultaneously via 802.3bt PoE input.
Unlike Hi-PoE (60W), IEEE 802.3bt, also known as 4PPoE or 4-Pair PoE, uses all four pairs of wire in a structured cable to evenly distribute power. This new standard allows manufacturers of powered devices to design new products with power hungry features such as PTZ cameras w/ IR illuminators and heaters & blowers for harsh environments and more.
There are several sources for PoE injectors that can supply 4PPoE for Tango, such as Altronix NetWay Midspans which are available in single port or multi-port options, which eliminates the need for multiple individual power injectors for larger projects.
67% of US broadband households own and use at least one internet-connected video device | #TpromoCom #Parks #Broadband #Internet | Industry report examines device and technology platform strategies for large players Amazon, Apple, Comcast, Google, Roku, Samsung, and Sony
New research from Parks Associates finds 67% of US broadband households own and use at least one internet-connected video device, either a smart TV, streaming media player, internet-connected gaming console, or connected PVR/DVR. The firm’s Connected Entertainment Ecosystems: Competition & Cooperation notes that these devices get plenty of use but also have lengthening replacement cycles, which is driving manufacturers to explore new strategies, including software and service offerings, exclusive hardware-content bundles, and open ecosystems. The challenges and thin margins in the CE are also narrowing the field of competitors.
“The connected entertainment space is moving towards a smartphone model, in which a handful of platform players control the operating system, UX, and consumer access to services and features,” said Kristen Hanich, Senior Analyst, Parks Associates. “These platform players stand to win big as consumers increasingly choose to sign up for their OTT service subscriptions through storefronts like Amazon Prime Video Channels, Apple TV Channels, or Roku Channel Premium Subscriptions.”
Connected Entertainment Ecosystems: Competition & Cooperation profiles the product ecosystems and market strategies for Amazon, Apple, Comcast, Google, Roku, Samsung, and Sony. It analyzes benefits and drawbacks of closed versus open device and app ecosystems and offers insights on consumer expectations for their devices as content consumption shifts toward streaming service options.
“Major changes in content distribution and consumption are affecting the CE market, notably the rise of OTT services and decline in pay-TV subscriptions,” Hanich said. “The increasing fragmentation in the content services market means there’s no single path to reach consumers. These factors, along with the consumer demand to access their content when and where they are, are pushing the connected entertainment market slowly but steadily in favor of open ecosystems where consumers can access most, if not all, of the services they want on the device they want regardless of which platform they decide to use.”
The report notes that in 2019 alone, 6.4 million US consumers cut the cord on their traditional pay-TV service, transitioning to OTT streaming and/or broadcast television, both of which continue to rise in adoption and usage.

Security issues considered in a world depression | #TpromoCom #Security #GreatDepression | The Security Industry must consider the implications on security implications that took place in the 1930’s during the great depression
In 1929 the great depression brought the world into a time of despair that lasted 10 years. Covid-19 is the root cause which surmounts the issues even more so. This dynamic of the ‘perfect storm’ will create calamities and shifting crime into different directions causing the security industry to shrink in some areas and grow in others.
This period gave rise to certain types of crime being the birthing of the organized crime gangs dealing in bootlegging and prostitution, besides the entry of the ultra-right wingers where xenophobia led to the murder of millions.
The manufacturing industry industry took a major blow during the depression, the banks had their issues along with other sectors in the economic machine took its toll. Now, with the 4th industrial revolution is on the rise and will have its own unique issues and crime related.
The physical security will have to contend with issues that will increase dramatically. We comprehend that there has been a distinctive increase in migration over the past few years, whereas, the vulnerability landscape has changed dramatically. Polarized neighborhoods have grown in size and various countries experienced increased support for pro-nationalist parties. The crime related in cross cultural attacks of grievously bodily harm, rape and murder has increased along with demonstrations and riots breaking out periodically. This work is not going to research right now the crime and damages related to all of the above and other issues, however, one cannot fathom the possible outcomes related to this scenario in theater. [Ref Critical Thinking the X Factor in Criminology, Security & Risk by Juan Kirsten 2018]
Man’s basic need of food, shelter and drink [alcohol – (prohibition crime in the 30’s)] besides medicine or medical support will be heightened and calling for all related buildings and logistic services related as soft targets. This comprehension of this knowledge will give direction to the security industry whereas, security consultants, companies, risk managers, investigators and trainers must comprehend their position, predict the changes in their location and field of interest to survive this debilitating period
This scenario will impact on the skills required now which must be relevant with distinct purpose. There may be a rush by educators to make certificates available but all-the-information is not in just yet and therefore, the most important step is to rapidly disseminate information in short bursts with short predictions within days and weeks. The educators and regulators consider protocols for emergency and disaster first before promoting modules and upgrading on existing skills for relevancy. Some of these protocols can be found in ISIO because this is not a one size fits all kind-of-thing. There are standard protocols and then there are uniquely designed protocols for distinct sectors and using specific tech or equipment.
Crime related to covid-10 [Juan Kirsten 2020] predicted issues that have occurred recently which is based on [Criminology and Security Investigation Management Ref Juan Kirsten 2019] which uncovered new crime, uncovered evolving copycat crime and opportunities(methods) to limit or mitigate the collateral damage. This knowledge is now being used to comprehend the economic depression impacting the world in this moment in time in-keeping with calamities and crime.
The International Security Industry Organization [ISIO] is such a body that will be providing pertinent and relative information to its member base covering all sectors. It calls upon serious like-minded practitioners to participate in its quest.

Parks Associates research reveals 41% of US broadband households are concerned about hackers getting access to their devices. With concerns higher among households without smart home devices, these fears could contribute to reluctance among consumers to purchase these devices. The international research firm will address the importance of establishing device security standards and certifications in the upcoming webinar “IoT Security: Establishing Frameworks to Protect Consumers,” cohosted with PSA Certified.
The webinar, hosted Tuesday, May 19, 11 AM ET / 10 AM CT / 5 PM CET, will address the value of industry standards and certifications in creating product differentiation, reducing risks, and building consumer trust.
“Connected devices have proven valuable in extending and enhancing many elements of everyday life, including work-at-home, education, entertainment, and health and wellness,” said Patrice Samuels, Senior Analyst, Parks Associates. “But the expansion of smart home adoption and online activity also increases consumers’ vulnerability to hackers and cybercriminals. Parks Associates research has repeatedly found safety and security to be fundamental to consumers, so all players would benefit from industry-level solutions that can deliver on the security of connected devices in the home.”
Moderated by Patrice Samuels, Senior Analyst, Parks Associates, this webinar includes insights from the following panelists:
