India's leading tech institute brings safety & security up to date

New Delhi, India

At IIT Delhi, approximately 300 high-definition network cameras were deployed to cover all vantage points and locations.

Considering the size of IIT Delhi, one of India's most premier educational institutions, managers realised that having a few security guards was clearly no longer adequate and was inefficient to properly monitor the entire premises, safeguard the students and prevent unsightly events. The need of the hour was an intelligent surveillance system that facilitated end-to-end protection by providing complete visibility of the campus, especially the entry and exit points, perimeter walls, and passages, as well as help instil discipline within the institute. And the institute chose Videonetics technology and system integrator Supreme Audiotek to work with them to help deliver precisely that.

The three-way partnership identified key strategic locations on the premises that needed to be secured. Approximately 300 high-definition network cameras were deployed to cover all vantage points and locations. These cameras covered entry and exits, boundaries of the campus, passages, playground, cafeteria, outdoor walkaways and lobbies of the various buildings, to keep in check incidents of bullying, vandalism, teasing, unauthorised visitors, and so on.

Videonetics AI-powered Intelligent Video Management Software (IVMS) 3.0 was chosen to support these network cameras to ensure efficient and seamless management of massive amounts of video data. The enterprise-class solution helped to record, view and manage these cameras from its unified interface, providing situational awareness and actionable intelligence.

The hundreds of cameras deployed across the campus now provides a comprehensive view of all areas to the security personnel manning the Command & Control Centre. With live video playing 24X7 on the video wall, they are able to ensure constant vigilance, spot unusual behaviour at any time and send alerts to the on-ground security staff for swift action. With Videonetics Intelligent VMS, security operators at IIT Delhi are proactively identifying, addressing and investigating incidents faster.

To safeguard the privacy of students, staff and visitors, Intelligent VMS ensures that the highest possible standards of data protection are followed. In this respect, it has offered its multi-pronged security measures, which includes multi-factor authentication so that data is accessible only to authorised operators, encryption of data at rest to protect from cyber threats, video watermarking to discourage unauthorised use, and more. Smart investigation-friendly software With smart and user-friendly navigation of Intelligent VMS, security operators are able to monitor and evaluate live, as well as recorded videos simultaneously in the same interface, helping them to quickly investigate incidents in history, without losing sight of the current activities. That means when incidents happen, operators can quickly find, select such videos, and share them with authorised officials for conducting investigations without leaving their desks. Furthermore, the leading-edge Intelligent VMS also provides collaborative tools for the operators to exchange messages and share observations about any suspected activity by using in-built chat room of the software.

Lastly, Videonetics open, flexible, and resilient IVMS system can be evolved with the growth of the infrastructure, as well as seamlessly integrate with third-party applications and devices. Moreover, it is future-ready and can tackle all the challenges of today and tomorrow.

The AI-powered offering also provides them with intelligent insights to help on-campus authorities predict and prevent events. For example, people crowding to fight, someone being followed, property being vandalised, unwanted people entering the premises, etc. This allows them to intervene in time and take preventive action before the issue escalates. The intuitive, adaptive and user-friendly interface of the solution has made it very easy for the security teams to understand, learn and master the software.

The Videonetics solution has boosted the confidence of students, parents, faculty, staff and others and made them feel safe at all times. It has brought them immense peace of mind, helping them focus on what they came to IIT Delhi for -- learn and grow.

Mukesh Khandelwal, Institute Engineer of IIT Delhi said "We were looking for a solution that could provide security to the entire premises of IIT Delhi, as well as help us administer discipline. The Videonetics IVMS solution was a perfect fit for viewing and managing extensive camera network covered all key strategic locations, enabling protection of students and faculty. Additionally, its user-friendly interface with advanced features made it very easy to monitor the campus 24X7, by empowering our existing security infrastructures.”
