Essay: CCTV camera technology-cost of technology
The second issue of concern on the modern technology is the ever spiral cost of technology. Technology continues to be very costly thus making it very complicated for most organizations and individual persons to fully enjoy the benefits that are related to the technologies. The better a given technology is in terms of its efficiency and effectiveness, the more reliable the technology would be. High costs have therefore become very closely associated to better technological machines. This has led to more companies hiking the cost of technology in order to give the false impression of better and more efficient technological apparatus.
The future of a number of technologies is very unpredictable. It is very complex for an organization to fully plan about its future technological plans since the entire process basically depends on other environment and business factors that can never be predetermined. Patent rights, copyright issues and related issues that relate to ensuring that innovations are protected also tend to hinder the extent to which various technologies can be utilized. The fact that most technologies only work best when used together with other technologies that support them makes technology to be an area that demands special attention (Miles and Snow 1984, pp. 36-52). Most highly effective gun detector system, for instance, have been known to be closely integrated with closed circuits television cameras in order for full benefits and proper utilization of the system to be realized.
