Video surveillance as a key component of security programs

Streaming digital video is one of the biggest innovations that has come about due to recent advancements in Internet bandwidth. Remote video surveillance is now possible over the internet with installation of multiple cameras and a streaming solution. Epiphan’s Standalone VGA Grid can capture and stream up to

An American technical school accommodating more than 1,000 students needed a video surveillance system that provided true integration to maintain a safe environment for the campus community. The school’s representative tells how Epiphan’s VGA Grid is used in this system and explains his choice: “Our technical school encompasses several buildings including instructional centres, library, and a stadium. There are multiple classrooms, teacher offices career-training labs and student services. Since we must address the different learning styles and lifestyle needs of the students, technology-enhanced security is very essential. What we needed was an integrated technology-oriented solution for monitoring and digital recording videos from multiple surveillance cameras in a control center.”

“The digital surveillance system based on VGA Grid is a scalable solution for years to come. We needed to increase the coverage across the school’s area and manage the data through one graphical user interface. Not only the system fullfils not only our immediate needs, but also lays a firm groundwork for expansion in the future. One of the main benefits of the system is its extremely high degree of customization. The safety and security of our students and staff has always remained a top priority for our school. With the new system we will surely achieve this goal. We let our partners in Epiphan know what configuration is needed exactly, and we got it. The system monitors and records data from cameras for simple event recovery and digital reproduction.  No matter whether our operators in the control room are strongly technology-oriented or not. Whatever technical skills and comfort level they possess, they can operate efficiently – starting from logging into to the video management system, configuring customized channels and recording. Everything is pulled to one screen from dozens of cameras. The safety and security of our students and staff has always remained a top priority for our school. With the new system we will surely achieve this goal.”
