Board Decides to Upgrade System
After a thorough investigation, comparison and trial of several digital video security solutions, the recommendation of the York Region District School Board’s systems consultant, IBI Group, was to choose a digital video security solution that combined digital video surveillance with video analytics, and suggested i³DVR’s digital video security solution. The Board, along with IBI Group, selected one of i³DVR International’s newest products, SRX-Pro. The Board decided to completely upgrade 27 of the schools. This current upgrade will allow for data analyzation that will contribute to the students’ public safety strategy, and determine the possibility of future upgrades.
According to David Neale, senior manager of administrative services, it was the ability to incrementally grow into IP technology that allowed the Board the ability to leverage its existing investment in CCTV equipment, while also taking advantage of the new technology.
Cameras will be used to monitor school grounds as well as the interior of each facility, a security combination that has proven to be extremely effective in helping to provide a safe and supportive school environment.
