Massachusetts College Uses Cernium, Milestone Technology To Enhance Security

Cernium Corp., developer of video analytics enabled products, announced recently that Mount Holyoke College has selected Cernium’s Perceptrak advanced video analytics software, integrated with Milestone XProtect Enterprise IP video management software, to enhance the security of its South Hadley, Mass. campus.

“Perceptrak meets Mount Holyoke’s objective to increase public safety and security in open areas and key facilities,” said Stephen Graham, president and general manager of Cernium’s Systems Division. “We are very pleased to provide a cost-effective, scalable, integrated solution along with Milestone that can easily accommodate surveillance system growth and changing security requirements.”

Perceptrak optimizes safety, security and operational effectiveness. It analyzes video from security cameras 24x7 for events of interest and adds meta data about the content, enabling organizations to monitor, manage, distribute, store and query video in a powerful new way. Security operators are alerted in real time only to situations that require attention, and a robust database of events simplifies searches for critical video information during investigations.

“Perceptrak provides our campus community with an additional layer of security,” said Doug Vanderpoel, director of auxiliary services at Mount Holyoke College. “The intelligent video technology immediately alerts security personnel to suspicious activity, allowing for a more proactive response to potential incidents.”

Milestone XProtect open platform IP video management software makes it possible to manage an unlimited number of cameras. Reliable and easy to use, XProtect allows operators to centrally, locally or remotely view live or recorded video from multiple locations simultaneously. Perceptrak works seamlessly within this environment to offer powerful analytics capabilities that help achieve safety and security objectives.

“The deployment of Perceptrak together with XProtect illustrates how Milestone is the open platform company for integrations that deliver real added value. Making video installations more intelligent translates to greater protection for the people and property of this campus," said Eric Fullerton, president of Milestone Systems.
