â€œI am looking forward, as the CCTV IG chair, to working towards the goal of the SIA CCTV Industry Group being used as a resource for the industry,â€ Canalas said. â€œThis would include aids for the techs, salespeople, dealers, integrators, law enforcement, and people doing research on the CCTV industry. I would like us to get to a point where CCTV is accepted in the public arena more readily, and try to find ways to dispel the old â€˜big brotherâ€™ is watching paradigm. As long as it is not abused, the public use of CCTV could benefit us all.â€
