DVTel’s ioimage Intelligent Video Analytics Deployed at Elayn Hunt Correctional Center as Part of Perimeter Security Protection
Ridgefield Park, NJ, May 10, 2011 --
DVTel, Inc., multiple award-winning market leader in Smart Security
Solutions for video surveillance, today announced that the Elayn Hunt
Correctional Center in St. Gabriel, Louisiana, has installed DVTel’s
ioimage intelligent video analytic cameras to assist in providing
improved perimeter protection for its skilled nursing facility and a
nearby cell block area where prison inmates are locked down in their
cells the majority of the day.
The Elayn Hunt facility uses ioimage cameras with onboard video analytics to establish a virtual fence within the perimeter 24x7. Upon a registered activation, the smart cameras stream video of a potential intruder in the restricted area across the network. With smart cameras maintaining a watch of the perimeter and generating alerts upon detection of suspicious behavior, the facility sees the potential to reduce the need for manned guard towers. In addition, the video from an alert highlights and identifies the subject, providing timely information for command center operators needing to quickly assess threat levels.
By deploying DVTel ioimage technology, Elayn Hunt officers in this area of the facility respond only to analytics-generated alerts, reducing their reliance on full time observation of live cameras and potentially reducing wasted time viewing lengthy video streams trying to identify breaches in the restricted zones. A patrol vehicle provides live monitoring of these zones as well.
“Smart Cameras with video analytics are more reliable than a person sitting in a tower for 12 hours, and the technology will alert and buzz staff when someone is breaching the fence,” explained John Whiteman, Vice President of Strategic Programs for DVTel.
The correctional facility is using the WDC 100dn ioicam to cover 3,000 linear feet of perimeter fence surrounding the 200-bed skilled nursing facility and cell block area. Elayn Hunt Correctional Center houses a total of 2,100 inmates in minimum, medium, and maximum security areas.
“Like most states, Louisiana is going through a budget crunch, so they are trying to maximize their prison system manpower by leveraging technology,” said Billy Ridge, Director of Sales for MMR Communication, the systems integrator for the project.
Each WDC 100dn camera views approximately 240 linear feet of fencing and is configured to identify and notify correctional officers should anyone try to climb the prison perimeter fence. The video is monitored by officers in multiple locations of the facility.
The WDC 100dn is an
ultra-wide-dynamic-range IP color day/night security camera with
built-in video analytics. It can detect intruders, suspicious baggage,
stopped vehicles and removed items by leveraging proprietary algorithms
and PIXIMŪ video image processing to provide crisp, fine-tuned images
for optimum detection and best security-usable video even in extreme
lighting and harsh weather conditions.
“DVTel’s ioimage intelligent video
cameras with the video analytics built in provide a proven and reliable
method for detecting incidents, so much so that several prisons have
deployed this solution to assist with detecting potential escapees,”
said Whiteman. “Our Smart Security Solutions offer reliable,
cost-effective solutions that leverage the benefits of technology to
improve operator efficiency and response time.”
DVTel develops, designs, and provides smart security solutions for video surveillance that help protect critical infrastructure -- in transportation hubs, city centers, nuclear and power facilities along with buildings and campuses of corporations, educational institutions and government facilities. We tie together leading edge IP-based cameras and encoders, with built-in analytics capabilities that detect and report security threats, creating a powerful security “edge". Using our Intellectual Property for the design and integration capabilities, we manage these edge devices through our versatile and highly scalable Latitude video management system. DVTel's solutions address the security needs of single locations requiring as few as two to three cameras, as well as those with global operations and thousands of video channels spread throughout a continent or around the world.
