St. Joseph’s Health Care ramps up cameras

St. Joseph's Health Care has doubled the number of cameras in its facilities since it began using the technology.

IndigoVision’s integrated IP Video technology has been providing multi-site CCTV surveillance for St. Joseph’s four facilities in and around London, Ont., since 2001. The system now includes 250 cameras.

IndigoVision’s technology provides an IP-based means for transmission,
control and storage of live-networked video. The system is location
independent, allowing an operator to view live digital and recorded
video from on- or off-site.

The system uses St. Joseph’s existing wide area network to deliver live
video around the site, allowing the installation of more cameras –
additional cameras can be added anywhere on the network without
additional cabling or even a cable infrastructure.

“A live network gives my staff the opportunity to view real time images
which is important in caring for our clients. Emergency Response is
crucial when dealing with a violent person or someone in need of
medical attention. We cannot afford the time delay,” says Mike
Bessegato, the director of fire and security services/emergency
planning, at St. Joseph’s Health Care.
