Mark Collett,

General Manager
Security Systems Group
Sony Electronics Inc.

Welcome to Sony Security Systems' October eNews!
Mark CollettLast month I joined Sony Electronics as the new General Manager of the Security Systems Division amid the great excitement of planning ASIS. At the show, we'll be announcing some exciting additions to our product line and showcasing our innovative technology. In my 20+ years in technology businesses, I have never been more encouraged by the growth of the market -expanding beyond traditional CCTV, monitoring and recording - and being at Sony, there is plenty to be excited by. Each month, I plan to use this space to highlight the cutting edge features that make Sony the leader in HD surveillance.

But this month, I'd like to use this column to invite you to drop by booth 2923 at ASIS in Dallas, so we can meet and discuss what is new in our line of scalable solutions.
