Video Insight Expands 2015 School Security Grant Program to $1 Million

January 28th, 2015 | Author: Lisa Hyndman

Will donate video surveillance systems to 50 underfunded schools throughout the U.S.


HOUSTON (January 28, 2015) – Due to the incredible success of its 2014 School Security In-Kind Grant program, Video Insight – a leading developer of enterprise IP video surveillance software – has increased the program fourfold for 2015 and will donate $1 million in grants to underfunded school systems across the United States.

“We started this grant program last year in an effort to help schools and colleges that have limited or no video surveillance protection in place to combat the continued violent acts and threats they face on a day-to-day basis,” said Video Insight Chief Executive Officer Robert Shaw. “While we were aware that many campuses simply do not have the funds to provide the security they need, we were overwhelmed by the response to our program and the absolute need for basic video surveillance protection which is why we are increasing the number of grants for 2015.”

The 2015 Video Insight School Security In-Kind Grant program will donate 50 video surveillance grants valued at $20,000 each to school and college applicants from across the United States. Each grant recipient — to be chosen and announced monthly — will receive Video Insight Video Management Software (VMS) licenses; 16 IP video surveillance cameras; 1 video encoder that includes VMS software licenses and 10 years of software upgrades.

School and college systems that received a Video Insight School Security In-Kind Grant in 2014 include Columbia County School District in Florida, Allen University of Columbia in South Carolina, Yucaipa-Calimesa Unified School District in California, Monroe Public Schools in Michigan, Gateway School District in Pennsylvania, Harrison School District 2 in Colorado, and Pilot Rock School District in Oregon.

Those that received grants in 2014 expressed much gratitude for the school-business partnership.

“The Harrison community is so fortunate to receive a grant from Video Insight to provide a top-of-the-line security system for one of our schools,” said Harrison School District 2 Superintendent Andre D. Spencer. “While school districts around the nation are investing in and improving security practices, we also look to business partners like Video Insight who can provide high quality equipment and training that allows us to focus on the most important goal…our students and their education.”

September 16th, 2014 | Author: Lisa Hyndman

HOUSTON – Video Insight, a leading developer of enterprise-class video management software (VMS), announced the release of VI Monitor for Mac. This free VMS client for Mac allows users to access live and recorded video from any cameras on the surveillance system using an Apple computer.

“Apple users love their Mac’s and are not excited when the VMS software is only accessible from a browser or from a product that was built for Windows. To address this, we challenged our Apple Mobile Team to build a native Mac client that they would like to use,” said James Whitcomb, Chief Technology Officer of Video Insight. “I’m happy to report that this new client gives Mac users easy access to the cameras in a familiar Apple style.”

VI Monitor for Mac provides users a native application that includes the most common features including high quality images, thumbnails to locate cameras, preset groups of cameras, facility maps, and snapshots for quick review in an investigation. The new client allows:

  • Full Resolution H.264 images
  • View cameras from any Video Insight Server
  • Integrated Active Directory login
  • Recorded clips via Motion based thumbnails or quick rewind
  • Control PTZ and select presets
  • Facility maps with live thumbnails and more
