Video Insight to Donate Video Surveillance Systems to Schools, Colleges
The company is stepping up to improve schools' and colleges' safety posture.
In an effort to help campuses prevent and combat violence, Video Insight, a developer of enterprise IP video surveillance software, will donate more than $250,000 in video surveillance software and hardware to schools and colleges nationwide in 2014 via a new Video Insight School Security Grant.
"In this day and age of continued violent acts and threats on campuses, every school and college needs a video surveillance solution as part of an overall security plan," Video Insight CEO Robert Shaw said. "Despite the fact that video surveillance is essential, there continue to be schools and colleges out there that have absolutely no protection due to budget constraints. The Video Insight School Security Grant is designed to help those schools that lack funds to implement a video surveillance solution."
Beginning in January 2014, and for each month throughout the year, a school or college will be chosen to receive the software and equipment necessary to implement a video surveillance solution. Each grant recipient will receive the following equipment:
- 48 Video Insight Video Management Software (VMS) licenses
- 16 IP video surveillance cameras
- One video encoder
- 10 years of the Video Insight Software Upgrade Program (SUP)
- One year of the Customer Assurance Program (CAP)
"The safety of students and teachers should never be compromised because of budgetary constraints. This grant is a small gesture in helping to provide security to stressed and underfunded districts, as well as to give back to these communities in need," Shaw said.
