New Jersey School District Deploys Avigilon HD Surveillance System

Avigilon recently announced that Long Branch Public Schools in New Jersey has deployed the Avigilon HD Surveillance System to deliver strong image clarity and coverage for greater investigative success while maintaining a positive, open educational environment.

“The primary goal for the new surveillance system is for it to deliver exceptional image detail, including facial and license plate detail recognition, to lead to more successful investigations and quicker conflict resolution,” said Joseph M. Ferraina, superintendent at Long Branch Public Schools.

Requiring fewer cameras to achieve complete coverage, the Avigilon HD Surveillance System heightens security without impacting the learning environment at the schools.

The superintendent, school administrators, and IT team at Long Branch Public Schools seamlessly manage the Avigilon HD Surveillance System using Avigilon Control Center network video management software (NVMS) with HD Stream Management and installed Avigilon HD cameras ranging from five to 16 megapixels at five schools.

The Avigilon 16 megapixel cameras have been installed on the exterior of the buildings to monitor the parking lots and the high school’s football field, while the remaining Avigilon HD cameras were installed throughout the interior of the schools. Long Branch Public Schools also installed 10 Avigilon HD NVR to store up to two months of continuous surveillance video. Long Branch Public Schools plans to install the Avigilon HD Surveillance System at its remaining schools within the next year to further boost student safety across the board.

"With student safety a key priority at Long Branch Public Schools, the new Avigilon HD Surveillance System offers a significant advancement in the board’s ability to keep students safe while maintaining an open and positive educational experience," said Dave Tynan, vice president of global sales and marketing at Avigilon. "Avigilon Control Center NVMS captures the image clarity needed to make positive identifications and delivers the features required to manage the evidence effectively for greater investigative success."

The Avigilon HD Surveillance System enables administrators to capture facial and license plate detail with dramatically fewer cameras than if they had deployed an analog-based system. With fewer cameras required, the school board saved at least 10 percent in up front installation costs.

The motion detection capabilities also help reduce the cost of storage, because the system only stores video that contains real movement. Simple management tools and smart playback capabilities mean that users spend less time managing the system and can achieve greater investigative success.
