exacqVision and IQinVision Team Up for Community Health Network
IQinVision announced that Indianapolis-based Community Health Network has installed an exacqVision-IQinVision-combined solution to meet their video surveillance needs. Koorsen Security Technology provided complete design and installation services for the project.
Established in 1956, Community Health Network is a not-for-profit health system offering convenient access to expert physicians, advanced treatments and leading-edge technology, all focused on getting patients well and back to their lives. With caring and compassion, Community's five hospitals, comprised of more than 90 buildings, continually strive to improve the health and well-being of all of their patients.
exacqVision hybrid servers and IQinVision HD megapixel cameras were installed to enable the Community Health Network Information Technologies department to monitor their data center to ensure continuous operations of their IT infrastructure. exacqVision VMS software was installed on two exacqVision hybrid servers to manage a mix of IQinVision megapixel cameras located throughout the data center and connected office building, as well as existing analog cameras. The exacqVision client software is installed on a video wall in the network operations center and in several other locations located through the facility. Video is continually monitored, and if an incident is reported, the staff will search for the video recorded on the server to investigate and support their findings.
“We selected exacqVision Hybrid Servers and Video Management Software because we needed a trustworthy video surveillance system to monitor our data center facility 24x7x365 and provide clear, real-time video as well as easy-to-access, recorded events,” said Chris Stewart, manager, Data Centers and Server Technologies. “The exacqVision Hybrid Servers also needed to operate seamlessly with existing analog cameras and integrate with the new IQinVision IP megapixel cameras. A major benefit was the flexibility of the client workstations to be easily integrated into our Network Operations Center for continuous video monitoring. exacqVision met our requirements and provides excellent performance.”
To date, Community Health has installed a mix of 42 IQeye Alliance dome and Sentinel cameras, ranging from 1 to 5MP in resolution. Going forward, Stewart plans to replace his analog cameras with the newer, IQeye megapixel cameras as the analog cameras fail.
“We’re happy with the IQeye cameras; if we had the budget, we’d replace all the analog cameras now. The clarity of the megapixel cameras is so much better; it really is night and day.”
Stewart has the high-performing IQeye cameras providing surveillance video for all his important, high value assets and locations.
“The IQeyes, they do the job well,” he concluded.
