New York School District Turns To IP-Based Surveillance

The Amityville, N.Y. school system is now a safer place, thanks to a video surveillance management solution from On-Net Surveillance Systems Inc.

The recent installation of an IP-based integrated security solution at the Amityville Middle and High Schools in the Amityville Union Free School District was designed around an open platform, enabling interoperability between systems as well as providing the ability to add on and upgrade as needs and budgets dictate in the future.

"OnSSI’s IP video management solution greatly simplifies complex video surveillance operations, allowing schools to easily monitor activity over their entire campus infrastructure,” said Mulli Diamant, vice president of sales for OnSSI. "Our solution also offers a great deal of intelligence in the form of analytics so that schools can react to events and potential problems more effectively and in some instances prevent them from escalating."

The installation, which features OnSSI's multi-site/multi-server IP-surveillance platform NetDVMS, is decentralized, allowing authorized users access from multiple PCs at remote locations. Security personnel and administrators are able to view and control the system from anywhere on the network.

OnSSI's NetDVMS offers live video, archiving and event management, investigation tools and an array of video clients to assure the delivery of video from any camera, wired or wireless, to any user. Video from networked surveillance cameras is recorded to NetDVMS in full resolution and can be stored to any location on the network with no need for video matrixes, multiplexers or switches.

With OnSSI's NetDVMS, fewer operators can monitor large camera installations through automated event detection and blank screen monitoring -- on-event push live video to users. Dedicated content analytics modules can be seamlessly integrated for directional motion detection, no-motion detection, crowd behavior and other events.

Alerts are streamed to users automatically through intelligent remote, Web and mobile video clients/controllers. Powerful investigation tools, including digital PTZ into recorded images and time-synchronized playback of video from multiple servers and sites enable accurate and efficient examination of events and exceptions.
