ioimage, the pioneer of intelligent video appliances designed for simplicity, announced recently that the Shi Jia Zhuang High School in China has successfully completed installation of ioimage's video surveillance system to protect its 2,500 students, supervise the school's entrance and prevent theft.
The Shi Jia Zhuang School campus covers an area of 45 acres and houses 13 educational buildings occupied by 2,500 students and 170 teachers. ioimage's advanced video analytics were installed to ensure the safety of the students, to control access to the school campus and to prevent the theft of expensive equipment.
The school added ioimage's analytics to existing CCTV cameras and enhanced its security with perimeter and tripwire detection. Since the installation was completed, the number of security personnel has been reduced, and no incidents of unauthorized entrance or exit have been registered.
"We found the system extremely easy to install and operate. ioimage's unique appliance architecture eliminated the need for expensive centralized PC based processing and dramatically simplified the solution," said a representative from He Bei Hua Zhan information Ltd, the system integrator that installed the system. "We checked several systems and found that ioimage outperformed them all. As an advanced, secure, reliable and effective system with flexible expansion capabilities, ioimage can become a primary vendor of school security."
"Some of the students tried to cross the fence to go out. Once any accident happens outside, the school has to bear responsibility and it ruins the school's reputation," said the Security Officer of Shi Jia Zhuang School. "Also, the school has to manage the risk of the theft of computers and expensive laboratory equipment. Finally, we have to prevent unwanted persons from entering the school."
