Massive protects Western India campuses
Intelligent Microwave Detector ,July 5, 2017 Hikvision, the world’s leading supplier of innovative video surveillance products and solutions, has supplied VMS software and IP products for the Government of Gujarat Directorate of Technical Education (DTE), to protect and administer education facilities across Western India.
Providing remote surveillance and alarm monitoring, Hikvision proposed an IP solution using DTE’s secure VPN, which connects all the education sites. Fully supporting Hikvision products, including DVRs, NVRs, cameras and speed domes, as well as third party manufacturers’ products conforming to ONVIF standard, Hikvision iVMS-5200 Professional VMS software was installed to control the new surveillance system 24/7.
Providing affordable high-quality surveillance imaging across the 43 campuses, Hikvision specified a mix of DS-2CD2620F-IS HD 2 Megapixel vari-focal IR network bullet, and DS-2CD2720F-IS HD 2 Megapixel outdoor network IR dome cameras. Both camera models provide 1920×1080 resolution, and true Day & Night (ICR) low-light capabilities, along with Back-Light Compensation (BLC). Approximately 1,300 new Hikvision cameras now provide surveillance within the campuses lobbies, classrooms, laboratories, staff rooms, examination halls, auditoriums, storerooms, exit and entry doors, and access gates and car parks.
“The Hikvision IP based surveillance solution illustrates what can be achieved with large-scale integration,” explains Pinkal Shah, Asst. Manager – Technical Support, at Prama Hikvision India. “The Hikvision iVMS-5200 VMS software enables 43 campuses to be monitored easily and reliably, encompassing central video management, integration and failover mechanism. Supporting all remote sites’ local storage and camera SD storage, the system uses Hikvision’s Center Video Record (CVR) mode using NAS to receive data streams directly from network cameras. With CVR there is no need for an intermediate storage server, which increases storage efficiency and system stability, whilst greatly reducing hardware costs.”
“The Hikvision surveillance system utilises a WAN/VPN to connect the locations in this massive multi-site project,” explains Mr. Dayashankar of systems integration company, Progility Technologies Pvt. Ltd. “The excellent Hikvision iVMS-5200 Professional VMS software enabled us to integrate existing third party cameras, as well as providing remote alarm configuration and monitoring. The quality of the Hikvision camera images is exceptional under every operating condition.”
