The Vigilant digital video recording solution offers absolute integrity for high risk sites such as prisons and custodial centres.
The CCTV network plays a pivotal role in the overall security system in prison applications. It has to secure a vast area and protect a large number of people and usually includes a network of hundreds of cameras.
Prisons tend to have several control rooms, which in turn link into one central control room. These control rooms often have responsibility for other areas of the security system all of which need to be integrated, such as access control, alarms and fire detection. As the security operators are not always familiar with IT-based CCTV solutions it is important that new technology is easy to use.
