University Of Rhode Island Implements Networked IP Video Solution From Verint Systems

Verint Systems Inc., a provider of analytics software-based solutions for workforce-enterprise optimization and security, recently announced that the University of Rhode Island has implemented Nextiva networked IP video management from Verint Video Intelligence Solutions to focus on student and facility safety.

The institution -- which is home to more than 16,000 undergraduate and graduate students, and serves as the state's principal public research university -- selected the technology in support of its security operations strategy, and in doing so, has transitioned from a legacy analog security system to a robust, scalable IP-based platform.

To replace its former DVR platform, Verint system integrator Galaxy Integrated Technologies, Inc. installed the Nextiva IP Video Management software, along with Nextiva S1708e 8-channel encoders -- all leveraging the university's existing infrastructure. The initial phase of the analog to IP video migration was deployed at the University of Rhode Island's main campus in Kingston with the full realm of security operations, including effectively monitoring and recording parking lots, buildings and walkways, as well as restricted areas.

With automated system health monitoring and analysis, live and recorded video viewing, policy-based video distribution and versatile investigation management capabilities, Nextiva can help the university meet its security needs today, while offering the flexibility to expand as requirements and policies evolve.

"In order to keep pace with our growth and increasing traffic volume -- and to align with our security strategy -- which includes equipping the university with the best in high-caliber, reliable technology -- we selected the Verint Nextiva platform," explains Paul Perrone, senior information technologist at the University of Rhode Island. "We partnered with Verint based on extensive research and the fact that it was the only organization with an open and reliable solution that could both meet our needs now and into the future -- all without putting a strain on our existing resources."

"We are pleased to offer this premier education institution a robust, cost-effective and scalable IP video solution that will expand the university's existing network," adds Elan Moriah, president, Verint Video Intelligence Solutions and Verint Witness Actionable Solutions.
