OTTAWA, Feb. 7, 2012 /CNW/ - March Networks® (TSX: MN), a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, today
announced that Escambia County School District - which oversees 60 schools serving more than 40,000 students in
Pensacola, Florida - has standardized on the company's video
surveillance system to enhance school safety. Equipped with March
Networks Command™ video management software and 4000 C Series hybrid NVRs, the school district now has an easy-to-use, IP-based surveillance
solution that allows it to resolve incidents quickly and better respond
to potential threats.
"At the moment, we have a mixture of March Networks hybrid recorders in
some schools and the server-based Command software in others," said
Brian Johnson, a network systems analyst with the school district. "The
solution is ideal, because it allows us to continue using analog
cameras where they are already installed, and eventually transition all
of our schools to IP surveillance as our budget permits."
The fact that the Command software is compatible with both Windows and
Macintosh operating systems was another key consideration for the
school district, as most of its administrators use Macintosh computers.
In addition, Command's web-based client interface eliminates the need
to install and maintain new software on each individual system, saving
the school district both time and resources. The web-based software
also makes it easier for Escambia to open the surveillance system to
law enforcement and other first responders if needed - providing them
with a real-time view into a school in an emergency situation.
"Security is a top priority for school communities worldwide, with video
surveillance playing an increasingly important role," said Net Payne,
Chief Marketing Officer, March Networks. "Our solutions offer the
ease-of-use and management capabilities needed to efficiently oversee
large school districts and campus environments, as well as the proven
reliability educators, students and their families demand."
