Schools can prepare to respond to active shooter scenarios in many ways. Implementing technical security solutions, conducting routine drills, and establishing active shooter action plans allow schools to quickly protect teachers and students if a shooter enters. Local law enforcement should also be included in active shooter drills to ensure efficient cooperation during an attack.

Video Walls (Part 3)

Posted by on

Video wall architecture varies depending on manufacturer and operational requirements. There are two basic categories of video walls, hardware-based or software-based, that determine the needed components to make the wall run smoothly. For example, software-based architectures rely heavily on the processors on board to perform the heavy lifting related to dynamic switching and control of the inputs so these systems require very high end servers. The location of the electronic components that make up the video wall is also an important consideration for service, maintenance, noise, power, cooling, and other reasons so the type of wall used will determine where the components are located.

Video Management Servers

Posted by on

Video management servers, also known as VMSs, refer to digital video recorders (DVRs) that are PC-based rather than older DVRs that use an embedded architecture. PC-based or server-based video recorders feature a software interface for users to manage live and recorded video, among other analytic features. The software is defined as a video management interface. When you combine the server-based hardware architecture with the graphical user interface to manage the video feeds from the surveillance system, you derive a video management system. The video management servers form the backbone of the system and consist of the physical video recording network appliances that are responsible for both analog and IP surveillance video cameras.

Security Integrators: Not All Created Equal

Posted by on

Many people often hear about a company being referred to as a security integrator or security integration company. In my experience, that means different things to people depending on their backgrounds and former involvement with the technical security industry. Security integrators come in various sizes and often have different areas of expertise. The important thing to realize is that not all security integrators are created equal so each customer should research and carefully analyze the expertise of each security integration firm they are considering for specific projects.

Synchronizing Video and Audio

Posted by on

Many surveillance operations are enhanced when the ability to record audio is coupled with video. Having an audio and video record of an event paints a more complete picture of what happened and provides more comprehensive evidence of past activities. This concept is not new and has long been understood. However, the challenge has been synchronizing the audio and video correctly so that the words are coming out of the people’s mouths as their lips are moving on the recorded video.
