Operations Center for Lovely Professional University (LPU) upgrades and modernizes the video surveillance system.
LPU is a modern-, technology-driven educational institute with a campus that is spread more than 600 acres. Located in the north-western state of Punjab and bordering the city of Jalandhar, the LPU campus offers more than 150 disciplines to its 24,000 students coming from all parts of India and abroad.
The university management required an enterprise-level video surveillance solution to help prevent vandalism, thefts and break-ins as well as to offer a safe environment for the students and their parents, staff and faculty alike. It was also mandatory to have in place a common infrastructure to support and centrally manage the video surveillance solution and public address (PA) system.
The project involves approximately 1,200 surveillance cameras with a mix of indoor and outdoor, day and night, IR fixed focus and PTZ cameras deployed across the campus with round-the-clock live monitoring and recording of synchronized video and audio.
The solution also includes a PA system, where audio traffic through the network needs to be unidirectional, and DVTel's video and audio encoders were implemented to support this. For the classrooms where both the PA system and recording of lectures take place, the audio/video encoders with bidirectional audio-channels were deployed.
More than 40 users are operating the DVTel system, so saving of personal preferences and permission settings are critical. High availability was another requirement so the entire intelligent security operations center system has been deployed in a failover configuration, so in the event that one of the NVMS servers going off-line, the operation and management of the cameras and other system traffic being managed by that server will automatically switch to the active standby NVMS server.
DVTel VMS has also been deployed in multiple Embassy Group projects, installed by Twice Digitale.
The Embassy Group is one of India's property developers with 25 years of experience in real estate development. Embassy has a land bank across the country. One of The Embassy Group's initiatives is in developing Special Economic Zones (SEZs) for their tenants. Being designated an SEZ provides tax benefits to the companies located in them as well as increased cost benefits in the future.
The Embassy Golf Links Business Park and Manyata Embassy Business Park, two most prestigious business parks developed and maintained by Embassy Group in Bangalore, are home to some of the companies from around the world.
Both parks offer video monitoring and recording of the area surrounding the perimeter of the buildings and in the parking lots servicing the business parks. More than 120 DVTel network cameras are deployed in the two parks. The cameras deployed are a mix of outdoor fixed and PTZ cameras. The software features of DVTel NVMS coupled with the network cameras helped the customer to decide in favor of DVTel.
