HD cameras from Avigilon with 5 to 16 megapixels are helping keeping a closer view on Long Branch (N.J.) Public Schools.

The largest-resolution cams are used in exterior areas including parking lots an the high school football field. The district plans to install the Avigilon HD Surveillance System at its remaining schools within the next year.

Also, 10 Avigilon HD network video recorders store up to two months of continuous surveillance video.

“The primary goal for the new surveillance system is for it to deliver exceptional image detail, including facial and license plate detail recognition, to lead to more successful investigations and quicker conflict resolution,” said Joseph M. Ferraina, Long Branch Public School superintendent. "After reviewing solutions from five vendors, it quickly became clear that Avigilon is the best solution on the market today."

The superintendent, school administrators, and IT team at the district manage the Avigilon HD Surveillance System using Avigilon Control Center network video management software with HD Stream. The Avigilon HD Surveillance System enables administrators to capture facial and license plate detail, and accurate motion detection capabilities also help reduce the cost of storage, because the system only stores video that contains real movement. It also features simple management tools and smart playback capabilities
