Event #10: Reviewing / Understanding Manufacturing Specification Sheets
November 22, 2016 / 1pm-2pm EST
Reading specification sheets or forms is a misnomer of its own. There is no such talent available. Interpreting and finding those tidbits of important information, often hidden amongst unimportant items is the key. With modern, IP-based, equipment the specification form becomes even more important if you know what to look for. This session is all about sorting the grain from the chaff.
Manufacturer specification sheets are an extremely important tool for the system designer, consultant, engineering group, installation, and potentially the service groups as well. This is also a good study for security directors or end users that may be involved with the decisions concerning the use of specific equipment under varying circumstances. Although not intended to make the attendee an expert at what can be a very complicated process, this session will help sort the important information from the unimportant filler. Everything from lenses, housings, mounts, data stream, features, storage requirements and much more can be found on a specification sheet, in fairly short time, if you know what to look for. Utilizing the information, once found, is a whole separate subject.
The problems that has bothered every industry that promotes specification sheets are numerous. Accuracy of reporting specifications is based upon the manufacturer's reputation and the supporting licensing association. Enhancing the importance of a product by expanding a specification sheet with "fluff" details is a common practice of every marketing department. Using vague and sometimes confusing terminology for items that are not necessarily standard is common. Creating new and proprietary terminology for common features has been done since the beginning of the reporting of technical specifications. This session is designed to assist the attendee in recognizing the differences between important information and fluff … between common language and proprietary language.
