Security surveillance specialist AD Network Video has introduced its enhanced integrated HD IP video solution for schools.
Virtual NVR delivers high definition IP video images for evidential purposes which directly tackle a range of issues that affect schools in a completely secure way allowing greater protection for staff and students.
Jamie Horastead, business development manager responsible for AD Network Video and the Virtual NVR Solution, comments: “Schools face a range of serious challenges such as vandalism, crime, bullying and assault that can be reduced through the presence of responsible surveillance monitoring, with well-trained staff.”
Horastead continues: “If schools use high definition video images with specific aims with sensitivity to issues and good communication with students, parents and staff it can have demonstrably positive effects.
“Intelligent IP Video solutions deliver tangible results that can improve school performance and help screen out anti-social behaviour.”
The Virtual NVR solution intelligently distributes video storage across single or multiple locations, with IP cameras recording and storing images on the in-camera server. These will carry on recording even in the event of a network outage as the devices operate as if they were standalone systems resulting in no single point of failure.
The evidential recordings are easily accessible locally or from the control room via a single user interface and are exported in compliance with police and home office guidelines. Recordings can be archived and managed from a central location driving greater efficiency and flexibility in locating and retrieving video from multiple sites.
Virtual NVR's secure and segregated network enables schools to implement the HD IP camera solution and integrate event triggers such as door openings.
Pauline Norstrom, chief operating officer of AD Group, of which AD Network Video is a part, comments: “Virtual NVR illustrates the continuing commitment to bringing to the education sector uniquely beneficial and effective video security management solutions.
“Our in-house R & D capability continues to underpin our industry reputation for innovation, with solutions that win out over and above the 'glorified web cam' by combining effective video transmission, alarm handling, database integration and HD storage mitigation in a way that no competitor can match. We have something special here that will help schools address serious challenges through improved security, increase ROI and lower cost of ownership.”
