With the spread of 3G technology, China’s wireless video surveillance technology is migrating to a new Internet communication standard from traditional CDMA technology. At the China Police Expo 2008 in Beijing, various new surveillance products were on display. According to a Xinhua news report, the boom of this industry was because of the government’s strategy of creating a “harmonious society” and the Olympics Security Operations. Exhibitors at the Expo included companies based in China, Italy, U.K., Germany, Singapore, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Czech, New Zealand, U.S., Russia, and France.
