In addition to writing books and lecturing seminars based on my books, one could label me as a prolific writer because I continue to write and contribute to various magazines and digital media.

 

Below you will find copies of many interesting articles, of which, I especially cherish the ones from the “love of my life” - the foregone “CCTV focus” magazine, which I edited and published it 20 years ago, for 7 years (1999~2006)! 

There are over 100 articles from the “CCTV focus” days and over 40 newer ones, up to the latest ones.

 

In addition to the main work produced by myself, there were a lot of contributed articles to the “CCTV focus” content and I included the ones which I consider interesting and important. 

 

The listing below is in time order, the latest ones being at the top, and they could be considered interesting and relevant from contemporary point of view. 

Others, being written many years ago, have now earned the historical values. There are many interesting company biographies, products test drives and various project stories. Many of the older articles are still valuable as they discuss things from our industry which are still important, such as minimum illumination, optics, compression, etc. 

 

I would like to mention here, some of the news we wrote about over 15 years ago, have become real products only recently, such as the T-Ray cameras, drones, light field photography, etc. Similarly, many new technologies at the time we wrote first about, like the HD technology or perhaps the H.264 compression, many readers have not heard of them prior to us writing about them. A pioneering effort in any case, which today has different, historical, meaning.

 

Enjoy the reading, and should you want to use or re-publish some of them, you have our permissions, providing you notify us and give our web site credit for making them available. 

 

Thank you.
