While the aging population rises with the declining birth rate, healthcare has become a crucial issue all over the world. Security in and around the healthcare institution is always a major concern due to the open nature of these places and the sensitivity of hospital operations. To protect the staff, patients, visitors, as well as the assets in many areas in the hospital, the security requirements are much more stringent than those in regular surveillance applications. Being a professional solution provider in vertical application, Surveon offers complete healthcare solutions, including high-resolution cameras, enterprise hardware RAID NVR, as well as enterprise VMS with real-time video analytics (VA) to detect forbidden area access like patient rooms, protecting the patients and staff from potential risks.

The plan is part of a larger upgrade of district security cameras. The Spring-Ford Area School District Board of Directors voted on Oct. 28 to approve the addition of cameras in Ram Stadium as part of a district-wide security upgrade. These cameras, expected to cost roughly $22,000, will be added to the $206,489 approved for a security system upgrade that was approved in September. Roughly $300,000 is in reserve for the project. Dehnert objected to the project at the Sept. 23, saying that he would rather see a comprehensive plan for all cameras and security in the district in place before purchasing systems piecemeal. “One of the problems we have today is that we have a piecemeal system that does not work,” Dehnert said. Board members Willard Cromley, Bernard Pettit, Dawn Heine, Ed Dressler and Clara Gudolonis voted in favor of installing the cameras in the stadium; Tom DiBello, Joe Ciresi, Mark Dehnert and Julie Mullin voted against the measure, according to the Pottstown Mercury . In September, DiBello agreed that a comprehensive plan on safety was necessary so that the cameras could fit into larger-scale plan. Currently, the plan is to convert the district’s security cameras to a digital system, and then to install additional cameras. According to The Mercury, other sports teams that use the stadium, such as the Spring City Legion, are unable to contribute to the project.

The Exacqvision hybrid server combines analogue and IP camera inputs into one surveillance system. This allows the Gallery Place to easily transition to new IP technology and still use their current equipment. It also provides a scalable system for future expansion. of additional IP cameras and servers. They were able to continue to use their Pelco switch with the Exacqvision server. Since their officers were already trained on this, they felt comfortable with the system and were able to […]
