Combination of audio, video and mapping create a comprehensive security solution for National Taiwan University
National Taiwan University is not only the nation’s premier higher-learning institution, it also boasts several sprawling campuses covering a combined 1.6km² in the Greater Taipei area alone. With so much ground to cover, it is only natural that the university would also have an extensive surveillance camera network to ensure the safety of its faculty and students.
EverFocus has supplied some of the surveillance equipment deployed at the university, making its own unique contribution to improving on-campus security. The company provided 178 security cameras — including Power-over-Ethernet speed dome models — all of which feature full-HD recording with a wide dynamic range, a built-in network interface and true day/night functionality to ensure round-the-clock coverage. In addition, 37 emergency intercom units were installed at important on-campus intersections.
However, the most important feature EverFocus provided the university is the Genie XMS central management system. Through Genie XMS, security personnel can access cloud-connected network video recorders to easily call up any footage they desire. Thanks to a platform map function, when any of the emergency intercom units are used, Genie XMS automatically alerts security staff, displays the location of the intercom and provides a real-time video feed. This three-pronged approach of audio, video and mapping provides the university with a comprehensive security solution.
To alleviate any possible privacy concerns, access to the university’s closed-circuit surveillance system is limited to the campus network.
