Regent University, which shares a campus with the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) in Virginia Beach, Va., is using the V.Networks IP-based cameras and network video recorders from JVC Professional Products Co., Wayne, N.J.
Some 48 JVC cameras, including the VN-C625U PTZ dome with 360-degree endless rotation, 12x optical zoom lens and Super LoLux technology for night-time surveillance secure the campus. Of the 45 installed cameras, most monitor building interiors with eight guarding exterior sites, including parking lots, loading docks, dormitories and the plaza adjacent to the library. Regent also deployed three JVC VR-N1600Us NVRs in a master/slave configuration that allows dispatchers to log into one unit but access all 45 cameras on the system. While the police department's dispatch center is monitored live 24/7 365 days a year, footage from JVC cameras are recorded as well.
According to CBN/Regent University Campus Police Department Lieutenant Eddie Lawhorn, no annual camera license renewal requirement, as well as the VR-N1600U's pre-installed Milestone XProtect Enterprise software for advanced display and search capabilities were important selling points. "It's a great product with fantastic support and no recurring fees," he added. "And the overall recording technology provides us with no tape worries. It's like night and day."
