Intuitive and User-friendly
The CORTROL interface allows all users to easily understand the configuration process and start using the software.

Complete System
The essential and advanced software features allow you to make the most of your  IP CCTV surveillance system.

Enterprise Ready
Central server hierarchy, failover, archive replication and many other high level features, CORTROL Global is the ideal system for large-scale solution.

Time-proven Performance
Quality and stability of the software’s core is proven and backed up by Ganz’s years of experience and continuous development.

GXi Imbedded Intelligence Content Analytics
Our intelligent network systems with GXi Imbedded Intelligence provide intelligent analysis of video with application areas including people counting and loitering detection, intrusion detection, vehicle monitoring, abandoned-object detection as well as camera tampering and failure detection.

Intrusion Detection
For perimeter security and crime prevention cameras can be used as intrusion detection sensor. An alarm is generated when a pre-determined object (person or vehicle) crosses into the detection zone. Equally, an alarm is generated if a person or object crosses from the inside to the outside of a detection zone, ideal for detecting a student or patient unknowingly wandering off premises.

People and Vehicle Counting
Count the people and vehicles that pass through a predetermined area with precision. Detect whether they are entering or exiting and measure the speed of the objects. This feature is ideal counting students, identifying traffic flow issues and alerting staff if a group gathers in a defined location

Abandoned & Removed Object Detection
Objects abandoned in a pre-defined zone it will trigger an alarm (a backpack or other object left behind). Applications include detection of suspicious objects and clarification of inventory losses.

Stopping and Dwell Detection
Vehicles or people that are stopped inside a zone, or remain inside a zone for longer than the defined amount of time will trigger an alarm. This option is ideal for identifying a loitering person.

Directional Detection
Objects that travel in the configured direction through a zone or over a line trigger an alarm. This can be used for traffic control and entry/exit monitoring.

CENTINELA VALLEY UNION SCHOOL DISTRICT HARDENS SECURITY AND IMPROVES SAFETY

Savvy school districts and security directors across the country are learning a whole new curriculum - how to successfully heighten security in their schools. So many incidents of sad and senseless violence in our nation's schools have hit the headlines over recent years, causing many districts nationwide to put increasing security for students and staffs at the top of their priority lists.

The Centinela Valley Union High School District (CVUHSD) based in Lawndale, CA had already proactively installed some analog cameras in its four High Schools back in 2009. So when it came time to prepare budgets for a major expansion and some reconstruction work at its campuses recently, funds were wisely allocated to expand and upgrade its existing video surveillance system. The District looked to José Covarrubias of JCC Video Security Systems, who served as the integrator on the initial project in 2009, to lead the effort. Security would be upgraded at each of its four High Schools: Hawthorne, Lawndale, Leuzinger (pictured below), and Lloyde.

Overview:

The expansion project got underway in the summer of 2013. Covarrubias turned once again to CBC AMERICAS and their Ganz Security line of video surveillance products as his technology provider. CBC had bid on the project and provided the District's Head of Security with an IP Video presentation. They were impressed with the technology Ganz products could bring to the installation and, because Covarrubias had already deployed Ganz analog cameras in the initial 2009 install, upgrading with their high-definition IP cameras was a natural progression. “I’ve been working with CBC for about fifteen years now," he says. "I'm really happy with the quality of their equipment, and their level of service."

The high schools are large and with the remodeling, required a lot more cameras. Covarrubias explains that many are being used to monitor hallways on the various floors, cafeterias, and other key areas throughout the school, as well as in the parking lots and entranceways. Approximately 400 new IP cameras have been installed over the two phases of the project, which was completed during the Fall 2014 school year, across the District's four schools, warehouse, and central office building.

The Solution:

To deliver the high-quality, high-definition resolution images the School District demands, JCC is using a variety of Ganz cameras, ZNS platform recording software, ZNR RAID-6 network video recorders and Digimaster DVRs. At the Leuzinger High School, there are 90 PixelPro GXi 1080p outdoor IP domes w/analytics (model# ZN-DNT352XE-XT) and 54 PixelPro 1080p outdoor IP domes with IR (model# ZN-DT2MTP-IR) being installed. At Lawndale, 106 PixelPro GXi 1080p outdoor IP domes w/analytics (model# ZN-DNT352XE-XT), two PixelPro ZN-DT2MTP-IRs, and 32 600TVL outdoor analog domes w/IR model# ZN-DT8312NBA-IR). At Hawthorne, 31 PixelPro GXi ZN-DNT352XE-XT and 67 PixelPro ZN-DT2MTP-IRs, and at Lloyde, the district's smallest school facility, eight ZN-DT8312NBA-IR outdoor analog cameras.

In addition to the schools, the District Warehouse is also being secured with 19 PixelPro ZN-DT2MTP-IR (1080p outdoor IP dome w/ IR) cameras. The District office also has been equipped with seven ZN-DT8312NBA-IR analog cameras, bringing the total number of Ganz cameras installed across the District to 416.

These cameras are equipped with GXi Technology which adds a suite of Imbedded Intelligence options to the already feature-rich PixelPro IP camera series. This Imbedded Intelligence Technology maximizes surveillance capability with a powerful set of built-in real-time video analysis tools. And the cameras, Covarrubias adds, because of the built-in analytics, can change position and follow intruders or and suspicious people when detection zones are breached and capture detailed information on the video stream. This is a huge benefit for the School District, offering added security and peace of mind.

Each school features its own mini-monitoring station where security guards and other security personnel, roughly six per school, can view the video streams. In addition to sending alerts to school security personnel (all of which have an app on their mobile devices to notify them when an alert occurs), the system is also tied into the local Hawthorne Police Department, allowing officers to log into their remote PCs to view what is happening.

Getting it up and running:

William Godoy, IP Product Specialist for CBC AMERICAS’ Imaging Technology Division, worked closely with the School District's IT Director, Gilbert Gutierrez, and security staff to train them on and acclimate them to the new IP system. "The training process has been pretty straightforward for Gil and his team," Godoy states. "They are learning quite a bit about our new analytic cameras they have installed and what these cameras can do for them. For instance, the cameras are set to record on motion for the smallest change in the scene at very high sensitivity. However, since we do not want to record 24/7, we enabled the analytics portion for Scene Change detection. This enables the camera to learn what it sees and only records when abnormal motion occurs."  

Godoy adds that they programmed the cameras to its ZNS Software to adjust resolution, recording frame rate, and analytics parameters. The District's IT department has also been instrumental in configuring IP addresses and helping to fine tune their system to their specific preferences.

The Results:

To deliver Centinela Valley Union High School District is now benefitting from a smarter, more secure surveillance system. Covarrubias notes that there had been some previous incidents of a few students vandalizing school property a bit, and now the cameras are curtailing that and also helping to provide evidence if disciplinary action is warranted. The interior and exterior of the school are now being better protected and, as Covarrubias adds, "It doesn't matter where a school is located, there is a need now in our society for cameras to be there, to safeguard them. It 's so much better to be safe than sorry." The Hawthorne P.D. now also has the added ability to view activity in real-time and provide a quick and thorough response.
