Cernium Corporation, a Reston, Va. developer of video analytics-enabled products, has been selected by Mount Holyoke College to enhance the security of its South Hadley, Mass. campus. Cernium’s Perceptrak video analytics software, integrated with Milestone XProtect Enterprise video management software, analyzes video from security cameras 24-7 for events of interest.
It also adds metadata about the content, enabling organizations to monitor, manage, distribute, store and query video in different ways. Security operators are alerted in real time only to situations that require attention, and a database of events simplifies searches for critical video information during investigations.
Milestone XProtect open platform IP video management software makes it possible to manage an unlimited number of cameras. XProtect allows operators to centrally, locally or remotely view live or recorded video from multiple locations simultaneously. Perceptrak works within this environment to offer analytics capabilities that help achieve safety and security objectives.
“Perceptrak provides our campus community with an additional layer of security,” said Doug Vanderpoel, director, auxiliary services at Mount Holyoke. “The intelligent video technology immediately alerts security personnel to suspicious activity, allowing for a more proactive response to potential incidents.”
Other U.S. colleges utilizing Perceptrak include Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Md., and the University of Minnesota Twin Cities Campus in Minneapolis.
