ACTi network cameras installed at British International School
The British International School in Cairo (BISC) has chosen ACTi IP cameras for its new school surveillance installation. The video security systems features 44 ACTi ACM-5711 box cameras and 4 outdoor ACTi CAM-6630 speed dome cameras all managed by ACTi NVR Enterprise IP video software. The cameras were installed at key locations througout the school to increase the overall level of security for students, faculty, staff and visitors.
Since the IP surveillance system operates using the school's existing local area network (LAN), new cameras can be added anywhere along the infrastructure at any time. Easy scalability is one of the key advantages of an IP-based school surveillance system.
Footage from the ACTi network cameras is streamed in full D1 resolution (720 x 576) at 25 frames per second using MPEG4 compression to maintain low bandwidth and storage requirements. By deploying an IP-based surveillance network, the school is able to view cameras remotely form multiple locations. This solved a key concern: distance limitations between security cameras and the control room. With IP cameras, those concerns were quickly squelched.
