GITAM University was coming up with its new campus in Bangalore. Being a highly reputed institute, it did not want to compromise on security and reputation of the institute and looked for a trusted Indian brand that could provide direct pre and post-sales support.
GITAM University is a leading research and innovation-driven university in India. The university has three campuses - its main campus at Visakhapatnam on India’s Eastern coast and off campuses at Hyderabad and Bengaluru.
Following a rise in criminal activities in campuses across the country as well as growing cases of “ragging”: initiation rituals for new students that often include harassment and humiliation of junior students, education leaders in India face serious concerns to provide a safe and secure learning environment.
GITAM University was coming up with its new campus in Bangalore. For such a large project, the University was looking for a trusted Indian brand that could provide direct pre and post-sales support.
The university wanted to operate the entire video surveillance system without a special IT infrastructure room and other peripherals like servers that complicate management and monitoring. The system had to be very easy to use so that it could also be operated by security guards without any hindrance.
Being very particular about discipline and security, they wanted video recorders that could store recording from all cameras for 45 days, and at the same time efficiently reducing storage costs.
Solution: matrix covered the entire campus with high-resolution IP cameras.
The solution was designed through a joint site visit by Matrix
executive along with the System Integrator. It began by securing the periphery of all five buildings with a combination of 1.3MP and 2MP IP cameras by estimating threat perception at each point.
Areas with higher threat perception were covered with 2MP varifocal cameras, whereas areas with low or medium threat perception were covered with 1.3MP cameras. A total of 80 cameras were installed to secure the periphery of all five buildings.
Interiors of the buildings were secured by mounting 1.3MP cameras in the corridors of all five buildings. Matrix 1.3MP camera, with a day as well as night vision range of 30 meters, ensured that the entire corridor was covered by a single camera. All in all, over 220 cameras were deployed in various areas of the building, covering every nook and corner of the campus.
These cameras provided crystal clear images with great detail that could be used to identify a person in case of an event. This acted as a deterrent for students indulging in ragging at hostels and helped the institute to ensure security and discipline through live monitoring.
