Trying to increase security in a time of tight budgets, the Chippewa Valley School District in Michigan is installing more than 600 network cameras and video encoders from Axis Communications in its six high schools and ninth grade centers this spring.
Chippewa Valley, serving 15,000 students, sought out a network video solution over analog because of superior image quality, centralized storage and management, integration into the district’s active directory, and Web integration, Axis said.
“Many schools share Chippewa Valley’s concern for the security of children and for several years we have seen an increasing interest in installations of network video products at schools and universities. While the schools often have the infrastructure in place, a cost-efficient installation of network cameras with superior image quality can easily be done, says Ray Mauritsson, president of Axis Communications, based in Sweden.
The company also specializes in extremely small surveillance cameras and small encoders.
