River Vale Police Department trades in analog system for JVC IP surveillance
The River Vale Police Department in New Jersey recently installed a digital surveillance solution from JVC Professional Products. The new IP surveillance system replaces an outdated analog system with a mix of indoor and outdoor cameras watching over any areas at the police station where officers and visitors are including entrances, the dispatch center, the jail, and the parking lot.
The new network cameras use IP technology which produces higher resolution images, more storage space for footage, and better video analysis. A JVC VR-N900U network video recorder, VN-V26U day and night security cameras, and a VN-X35U megapixel IP security camera make up the system which has been in place for a little over a month. The intuitive nature of the new surveillance network makes it easier for police officers to use, saving crucial time when it comes to using footage as evidence.
Police department officials already have plans to expand the surveillance network. Eventually a microwave link will be added, connecting to covert wireless surveillance cameras in specific areas of town to a recorder at the police station where footage can be monitored. There are also plans to install IP technology in the interrogation rooms.
