U.S. Correctional Facilities Use NICE Systems IP Video Technology
NICE Systems has received follow-on orders from a large-scale U.S. corrections operation for its NiceVision IP-capable video surveillance solution. NICE received the NiceVision orders for four additional sites of a large-scale U.S. corrections operation.
Including these sites, NICE security solutions will now be deployed in a total of 56 of the operation’s corrections sites around the country. The state-of-the-art NICE video surveillance solutions, which will replace competitive products, are equipped to capture video from IP and megapixel cameras, a key feature for the corrections operation as it begins its migration to IP video surveillance.
Among the world’s largest prison systems, managing an inmate population in the hundreds of thousands, the large-scale corrections operation has been a NICE customer for close to a decade, with more than 10,000 video surveillance cameras currently recorded and managed using NICE technology.
The operation’s primary mission is to keep the outside population safe by securely confining inmates inside the prisons’ walls. NICE’s security solutions assist in this endeavor by enabling real-time monitoring, event detection and video recording of virtually every area that needs to be secured -- from outside prison yards to inside cafeterias.
With more modern IP cameras becoming part of its video surveillance mix, the large-scale corrections operation has decided to invest in NiceVision NVRs to better manage its IP migration. Two of the sites covered by the new orders will utilize NiceVision NVR solutions to leverage existing infrastructures while migrating to IP. The customer will benefit from the ability of NiceVision NVR to seamlessly manage analog and IP cameras on a single platform.
Powered by advanced analytics, NICE’s intelligent solutions also provide real-time insight and proactively alert to security situations. Integration between NiceVision and alarming systems, such as perimeter fence alarms, means corrections security operators get visual alerts and automatic video verification when virtual perimeters are breached. Integration with intercom and door control systems enable automatic visual verification when prisoners are escorted or transferred through gated areas.
“Very few operations face greater security risks or have more stringent security requirements than correctional facilities,” said Chris Wooten, president of the Security Division Americas of NICE. “NICE is especially honored that this large-scale corrections operation, a customer with whom we’ve had a long-standing relationship, continues to entrust its security needs to NICE.”
