HIGHER Education Solution
Two important factors at every school are information and safety. Students and professors need to have access to libraries all over the world, research tools, audio/visual materials, periodicals and more. The internet is the perfect way to bring this information into the schools. Therefore, school systems have been quick to adopt IT strategies resulting in today's wired classrooms and educational facilities.
However, the learning environment needs to be safe. In fact, it should be so secure that safety isn't even on the minds of students and educators. As a result, time-lapse VCRs and computer-based DVRs that utilize video from analog surveillance cameras have been an important part of the overall security of school campuses for many years now.
Today there are thousands and thousands of educational facilities all over the world that are already wired for IT and surveillance. Additionally, IT infrastructure is always an important component of any newly built school or university building.
According to the International Association for Healthcare Security and Safety (IAHSS) the healthcare industry was the largest employer in the world as of 2004 with over 13.5 million people employed. Additionally, every person in the civilized world will enter a health care facility on numerous occasions in just a typical year.
Healthcare security departments create a sense of security so that patients and visitors find the facility to be open and inviting and choose it for their healthcare. As well, security focuses on the needs and concerns of workers so the workforce finds the institution to be an employer/workplace of choice. (SOURCE IAHSS FACT SHEET)

The retail setting creates a unique set of opportunities with regards to surveillance video. While video cameras are certainly pointed towards merchandise in an effort to reduce shrinkage, a shared concern of many retailers is internal, or employee, theft. Therefore a surveillance system needs to be covert enough to detect and detract all types of loss prevention. Moreover, a surveillance system enhances the image of a retail establishment by making customers feel safe. Since many retail applications involve more than one location, it is important for a surveillance solution to be scalable and have powerful remote functionality.
Banks and credit unions often have an image of being highly secure institutions. It's common to walk into a bank and instantly see an armed guard and several surveillance cameras. Surveillance footage from crimes like robberies is often dazzling enough to be featured on television news. Being able to identify and apprehend an assailant is a positive reflection on the security measures of that institution. But crimes like check fraud and identity theft also pose a significant threat to financial institutions and require the latest in video surveillance.
