Mike Newton

FireVu (NetVu Ltd)

Mike Newton graduated from the University of Manchester in 1981 with a BSc (Hons) in Computer Science, founding Dedicated Micros immediately afterwards. The business has been at the forefront of technological innovation within the CCTV sectors for more than 40 years, with the first commercially viable video multiplexer for CCTV and the first fully digital CCTV video transmission system in 1992.

In 2003 Mike launched the pioneering FireVu combined visual smoke and flame detection products with development ongoing in NetVu Ltd. That technology has now evolved into the current, industry leading, FireVu Multi Detectors incorporating a unique and patented flame detection algorithm that enables the system to quickly and reliably detect the presence of a fire in even the most demanding environments. Speed of response and low false positives has delivered a highly successful solution for waste processing and recycling sites specifically, with significant fires effectively eradicated in any site utilising the solution.

Mike continues to lead the development progress of this and other key NetVu Connected products, while continuing other activities in motorsport engineering, including being a race driver in historic Le Mans cars which he originally raced with success at the Le Mans 24 Hour races.
