Open IP video networking reduces crime in US high school.

Milestone Systems : 14 November, 2007  (Application Story)
Milestone management software for open platform IP video networking results in massive reduction in crime at Californian high school whilst satisfying scalability requirements for future network expansion.

The Shasta Union High School District in California needed a surveillance solution to help improve school security for the students and staff, managing theft and vandalism. Milestone Systems open platform IP Video management software provides a powerful and easy-to-manage solution for their needs here and now, as well as in the future. The Shasta Union High School District includes four high schools in different locations with more than 6,000 students and 540 faculty members. There had been incidences ranging from fights and vandalism to theft and property damage. Their previous security system had failed to meet the complex needs of buildings that are geographically widespread. The new IP system installed by Ojo Technology is a perfect solution. Utilizing Sony and Axis network cameras tailored for the specific environments and managed by Milestone XProtect Enterprise IP Video management software, their needs are met. “We have experienced a 98% reduction in school vandalism and theft - combined with an efficient way to accurately identify responsible parties associated with student conflicts,†says Mike Vincelli, Director of Information Technology at Shasta Union School District. The Milestone software provides monitoring of activity in the main gathering areas with access to all installed locations – centrally or remotely – for live viewing or fast search-and-find of recorded video. The solution is scalable and allows a best-of-breed mix of cameras, so the newest technology can be added as it becomes available. This means that they do not fall victim to “proprietary jailâ€Â, being stuck with one vendor. There are up to 20 cameras per location installed in such different areas as football fields, hallways, cafeterias and parking lots. Ojo Technology is a Certified Milestone Partner. This means that they have completed special training in the top XProtect video management software. This in turn ensures greater expertise in surveillance installations and greater customer satisfaction. “We found the staff at Ojo Technology to be knowledgeable and easy to work with. They efficiently assessed where improvements could be made to our initial plan while still keeping within our designated timeframe and budget,†says Vincelli. “The solution fulfilled our expectations, and we are very satisfied.â€Â
