Perceptrak advanced video analytics software enhances campus security.

Mount Holyoke College has selected Cernium Corporation’s Perceptrak advanced video analytics software, integrated with Milestone XProtect Enterprise IP video management software, to enhance the security of its South Hadley, Massachusetts campus.

“Perceptrak meets Mount Holyoke’s objective to increase public safety and security in open areas and key facilities,” says Stephen Graham, president and general manager of Cernium’s Systems Division. Perceptrak optimises safety, security and operational effectiveness. It analyses video from security cameras 24x7 for events of interest and adds meta data about the content, enabling organisations to monitor, manage, distribute, store and query video in a powerful new way. Security operators are alerted in realtime only to situations that require attention, and a robust database of events simplifies searches for critical video information during investigations.

“Perceptrak provides our campus community with an additional layer of security,” says Doug Vanderpoel, director, auxiliary services at Mount Holyoke College. “The intelligent video technology immediately alerts security personnel to suspicious activity, allowing for a more proactive response to potential incidents.”

Milestone XProtect open platform IP video management software makes it possible to manage an unlimited number of cameras. Reliable and easy to use, XProtect allows operators to centrally, locally or remotely view live or recorded video from multiple locations simultaneously. Perceptrak works seamlessly within this environment to offer powerful analytics capabilities that help achieve safety and security objectives.

“The deployment of Perceptrak together with XProtect illustrates how Milestone is the open platform company for integrations that deliver real added value. Making video installations more intelligent translates to greater protection for the people and property of this campus,” said Eric Fullerton, president of Milestone Systems.

Other institutions of higher education across the United States utilising Perceptrak to improve campus safety and security include Johns Hopkins University and the University of Minnesota Twin Cities Campus in Minneapolis.
