The system will improve the safety of children and employees on the territory of the educational institution
Requirements for image quality from CCTV cameras will be strengthened in Moscow schools. Clearer, more non-monochrome HD images will enhance the safety of children and educators in educational settings.
The new contract, designed for five years, provides for the transfer to the Unified Center for Storage and Processing of Image Data from 13 thousand cameras located in the territories adjacent to institutions, as well as in common areas inside buildings - entrance lobbies, hallways and others.
"According to the technical requirement, the service provider will have to provide a clear, non-one-color video image with a stable non-static video stream, with a communication channel capacity of at least 1,024 Kbps per video camera. At the same time, the camera resolution must be at least HD (1280 х 720) is a fundamental change in comparison with the current contract, which provides for lower image quality,"- said the press service of the Moscow Department of Information Technologies.
At the same time, the contract does not provide for video surveillance in classrooms, it is about transferring images exclusively from public areas, the Moscow Department of Information Technologies emphasizes. Now 12.6 thousand cameras located in educational institutions are connected to the city video surveillance system. They are used to ensure security, as well as to control the maintenance and improvement of adjacent territories.
The system will improve the safety of children and employees on the territory of the educational institution. "In case of any abnormal situation, the image from the cameras allows you to establish the circumstances of the incident, so it is important that the video is as clear as possible. In addition, video surveillance in HD will increase the efficiency of the video analytics system that law enforcement officers use to find offenders," explained in the press service of the Moscow Department of Information Technologies.
The department also noted that video from CCTV cameras in educational institutions will be sent to the Unified Data Storage and Processing Center, which only authorized employees of city services and law enforcement agencies have access to in strict accordance with Russian legislation.
