    Infrared video camera and illuminator? I don't know cost, but Kodak used to take photos in a coating plant while work was in progress recording an image of the workers and film or paper using IR film.

    Part of me wants to say all this is making more of a threat than really exists. The news media make it sound like every adult wants to molest every child. The reality is that while molestation is a tragic thing that does occur, it is more likely harm will come to a child by an automobile accident while being driven to the youth center.

    If actual risks were the issue, we would insist upon four point harnesses and rollover cages in cars. The risk from molestaion is quite real, but has been unrealistically magnified by the media's response to it's repugnant nature.

    Anyway - an IR imaging system would solve the conundrum.

    I use red cast acrylic sheet in my portable darkrooms and the RV conversion. Works OK for wetplate collodion and I suspect it would be OK for B&W printing as well. It is cheap and could be cut to any size you need. Something like 8mm thick is probably what you need. (I use 4-5mm for my application.)

    Here's a few shots of the stuff in use:


    in my portable darktent


    outside looking in


    in the RV

    I think revolving darkroom doors are also available made out of the stuff.

    Thanks all,

    Plenty of food for thought. While the video feed solution would be a nice one, I would fear that the cost would be prohibitive. The Rubylith/Acrylic sheet and LED safelight sounds like it would be at least worth a try. Having changing bags for film loading is no problem, I have couple floating around.

    Vaughn, in reality a good Child Protection Policy will protect both the child and adult, so there is naturally an "Adult CYA" aspect to the policy, as you say a shame that there is a necessity, unfortunately it is the world we live in

    David I may have the solution for you which is a wireless baby monitor we have at home. Now that she is gone past that stage I could let you have it. Please let me know if this is ok and I'll dig it out of the attic.

    Fintan,

    Good idea, is it an audio monitor or does it have video also?

    Sounds interesting. Let me get back to you, there is a meeting in the next few weeks about the youth center and I'll run it by them. How much do you bet there'll be something about using video surveillance :rolleyes:

    But it does sound like a neat solution!
