IndigoVision IP cameras provide city surveillance in Lansing
Lansing, Michigan just received a new city-wide video surveillance system that aims to clean up a number of known high-crime areas. The new surveillance deployment uses IP cameras and equipment from IndgiVision. By embracing IP video technology, the city now has a comprehensive IP camera network that the police department can tap into remotely from any location.
911 dispatchers as well as police vehicles are able to access the cameras on the move using IndigoVision Control Center software. They can view live video in real time, and can also access recorded footage. The system helps to speed up response times in emergency situations, and also allows the police department to broaden its reach, as the cameras can monitor areas where officers might not be currently present. The goal here is to make existing police operations more effective and efficient.
Along with the benefits of mobile surveillance, the IP video footage is also accessible from control Center workstation in two precinct headquarters, where police officers monitor the cameras. Footage is also archived in case an incident requires further investigation. The video is streamed at a frame rate of 30 fps, providing clear and smooth video images that are recorded Network Video Recorders.
Future plans include a 60-camera deployment for the city's correctional facility, plus upgrades to existing analog systems in local area schools and transit systems.
