Infinova, a provider of core equipment for video control rooms, megapixel, IP and analog surveillance cameras, says its IP cameras and other video equipment are being used to oversee factories, inmate work areas, the central office and surrounding areas of California’s Folsom Prison.

The California Prison Industry Authority (CALPIA) selected Infinova for its “more rugged applications because of the durability of their equipment in environments not necessarily friendly to many video cameras,” says Wendell Hubbell, CALPIA’s senior information analyst. Infinova’s equipment is being deployed both outdoors and indoors, including at the facility’s central office, where most of the cameras are outside, watching the periphery of the building, Hubbell said.

Other cameras are installed in strategic locations throughout the area surrounding the prison, with the inside cameras focused primarily on inmate work areas, according to CALPIA.
