IndigoVision supplies IP video to NJ county prosecutor
IndigoVision has supplied an IP video surveillance and recording system to the prosecutor’s office in Hudson County, NJ.
The company says the system has “transformed the interview process” in the prosecutor’s office.
The new system was installed by ADT, IndigoVision’s local partner, and it replaced an analog / VCR system.
The old system was “inadequate for the demanding application of recording law enforcement interviews,” according to IndigoVision. “Officers could only view video from a small room adjacent to the interview room itself and longer interviews had to be interrupted to change tapes.”
The new IndigoVision system allows “live and recorded video from any camera to be viewed from anywhere on the network,” the company says. Tape changes have, of course, been eliminated, and multiple users can view video over the network.
“Following an analysis of competing systems we chose IndigoVision’s solution because it delivered the highest quality video and the best audio and video synchronization,” Sergeant Gerald Dezenzo, head of computer crimes, said in the company’s statement. “It is vitally important when recording interviews that we have no delay between the audio and video, otherwise it could bring into question the validity of the interview.”
The prosecutor’s office currently has 25-30 users who monitor live and recorded video from 20 cameras installed in four interview rooms, cells and public waiting areas, the company notes, and officers who use PC workstations running IndigoVision’s security management software to view live and recorded video.
