Granite School District Employs Salient Systems CompleteView Platform
Now standardized on Salient’s open architecture VMS platform, the Granite School District in Utah is one of the largest school districts in the country, with 60,000 students, 7,500 staff members and 130 facilities.
AUSTIN, Texas — Salient Systems, a developer of open architecture video management systems, has announced that Granite School District, one of the largest school districts in the U.S., has selected the CompleteView Video Management Platform to deploy in more than 130 schools, administrative offices, and other facilities.
Salient Systems points out the open video data platform will help the Salt Lake City area school district manage its security and surveillance operations.
“School districts such as Granite not only require a robust platform for surveillance but one that can also accommodate new innovations in school security and operational efficiency technology,” says James Stephens, Western Regional sales manager, Salient Systems. “By leveraging CompleteView’s open platform approach, the district will not be limited to specific camera vendors, analytics providers, or other third-party integrations they might like to implement.”
CompleteView VMS Platform Safeguards Students and School Staff Members
Salient Systems explains that over the next several months Granite School District will connect more than 5,000 cameras to CompleteView to provide a district-wide picture of security operations, with the help of its systems integrator partner, Utah Yamas Controls, a company based in Draper, Utah. Salient notes the system will help protect 60,000 students and 7,500 staff members.
According to Salient Systems, Utah Yamas recommended the CompleteView solution based on its experience with the company’s products to meet the district’s need for a robust platform that was intuitive to use, easy to deploy, and could scale to meet Granite School’s current and future camera requirements.Salient Systems boasts the CompleteView VMS open architecture platform offers dynamic market capabilities by reducing bandwidth consumption and enabling more users to access more cameras from any client, including web browsers and mobile devices.
The platform’s bandwidth management features, such as multi-streaming, leverage a camera’s built-in capabilities and intelligently switches between low and high bitrate streams on up to three streams per device. Dynamic resolution scaling intuitively scales a video’s image and only sends useful pixels of data to the server, reducing strain without sacrificing quality.
