Chillicothe High School, in north-central Missouri, has deployed IQinVision HD megapixel cameras as part of its new IP video surveillance system.
When Dan Nagel, Assistant Principal and Athletic Director, assumed his position two years ago, his many responsibilities included attendance and discipline for the school’s 605 students. One of the tools at his disposal was the existing video surveillance system. “We had about 16 analog cameras and the images were not very clear at all. The DVR was hard to work with, and even if you did figure it out, getting positive ID on a student was quite difficult. We had to make an identification by looking at the clothes a student was wearing. If we didn’t solve an incident that day, and the students showed up the next day in different clothes, we were out of luck.”
