Algood, Tennessee - Research Electronics International (REI), the world’s leading manufacturer of technical surveillance countermeasure (TSCM) equipment, was recently featured in Pinpoint Productions “The Red Balloon”, an information video on industrial espionage and electronic eavesdropping. The Red Balloon explores domestic and foreign espionage against individuals and companies by first providing an overview of the problem and then showing several examples of radio bugs and wiretapping devices and techniques and discussing other forms of eavesdropping. Finally, and most importantly, this instructional video explores technical surveillance countermeasure equipment (TSCM) and TSCM manufacturers, providing advice on how companies can protect themselves from attacks on their intangible assets. REI is featured in the video as one of the world’s largest manufacturers of eavesdropping detection equipment. Charlie Taylor, host of the Red Balloon, states that “REI distinguishes itself from some of the other TSCM manufacturers by keeping its engineering, research and development, and almost all manufacturing processes in house, ensuring that their products are of the highest quality and utilize the latest technology.” The video is an excellent educational tool to raise the awareness on the potential threats of competitive espionage and the need for attention to this important area of security. It provides an introductory overview of TSCM, and also provides beneficial,practical, and realistic security advice for the modern business organization.
