The Maharashtra Police Academy (MPA) at Nashik will soon get a cutting-edge technology to protect itself from any suspicious character lurking around its periphery.
State home minister RR Patil will inaugurate the Intelligent Video Surveillance System (IVSS) on May 29 at the MPA.
The system consists of cameras and video management system and application software, and is one of the most modern systems and has been designed, commissioned and installed by Revmax security systems. It will man the entire 250 acres area of the MPA.
Sources say that the system is based on an open source video management system provided by an European company, Milestone Inc.
“The system can analyse the events in the present as well as the past using intelligence and analytics software provided by the Agent Video Intelligence, an Israeli company which is a global market leader in the field,” a source told the Hindustan Times. The cameras used in the system have the capability to detect and transmit data even in poor light conditions. “This will give superb detection capabilities at night,“ the source added.
The Geographical Information System (GIS) fitted in it will create virtual trip wires around the periphery of the academy.
“In case any wire is tripped due to any violation, the system will automatically highlight the area in which the transgression has happened. The area will be highlighted on the pre-fed map of the MPA in the system,” the source said.
The prototype costs around Rs85 lakh but is being provided free-of-cost to the MPA.
