Image Matrix Tech on Sky News: Motorola Solutions public safety demo

In Sunday’s segment on Sky News Australia (Weekend Edition with Tim Gilbert) we reported live from Kuala Lumpur* about the rising demand for security cameras around the world and how they are being deployed. We showed a public safety demo that looked like something out of a Jason Bourne movie. . Motorola Solutions put on the demo to show how security cameras and police work together to solve crimes and respond to disasters. Using body cameras and the latest CCTV cameras they showed how a team in a control room can track down criminals in real time and communicate effectively with first responders. All the relevant video is saved for evidence.

We saw a simulated fire and bomb-proof remote cameras. New surveillance or ‘public safety’ cameras are coming online everyday but it’s important to note that computers with AI will do most of the heavy lifting. Humans will only watch public safety videos when alerted by the system.


Doorbell cameras are playing an increasing role in solving and preventing crimes. Police are looking for CCTV from any source and that includes from us .. at home. They are also the source of funny videos. There’s even a new series coming out called RING NATION based on the videos captured by Ring video cameras. It’s a bit like America’s funniest home videos. These are popular online and it’s a sign we are becoming used to surveillance – because we are doing it ourselves.


Do not wait. Do it now. Apple has issued an update to iOS which is serious. You must update to 15.6.1 Available for: iPhone 6s and later, iPad Pro (all models), iPad Air 2 and later, iPad 5th generation and later, iPad mini 4 and later, and iPod touch (7th generation)

iPhones are very safe but this a serious threat because a hacker could take control of your device. There is also an update for Mac OS 12.5.1 This a timely reminder to turn auto update on!


Now that international travel is underway again we showed a few devices that can make the time pass a little faster. If you want to watch a movie on the plane in total privacy then try TCL NXTWEAR G. These glasses give the impression of a 140 inch screen on your face.

I was dubious about these when they launched at $899 sitting at home in the pandemic. But now I’m travelling again and I used them on a real flight to KL – I’m hooked. I watched a Stan offline video of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country via a Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. For sound I used the Technics EAH-AZ60 true wireless earbuds. Just awesome. Works with many phones and laptops but not iPhone. They have dropped in price to $649

When it comes to big physical screens .. you can’t go past the Samsung Galaxy TAB S8 Ultra. This is the best screen I’ve ever seen on a tablet. It’s a beautiful wide-screen 14.6 inch Super AMOLED display. Might need a bit of elbow room in economy 😉

When it comes to earbuds, look for a pair that can do active noise cancelling (ANC) and ambient/transparent sound. That’s so you can listen to announcements from flight crew. The models shown (and others not shown) in the segment are undergoing a full review that will be seen soon on Image Matrix Tech.

The buds in the group shot include: Technics EAH-AZ60 | SONY LinkBuds S | Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2 | SONY LinkBuds | Samsung Galaxy Buds2

When it comes to power – get a PD (power delivery) charger. They are small but can charge everything including laptops up to 100W. The one in shot is from Belkin.

And something simple like a power board with USB sockets is essential on my trips.
