IPVideo Corp Selected by Illinois Agency to Upgrade Interview Recording System

June 29, 2018  | 

IPVideo Corporation, a leading manufacturer of IP-based video surveillance and command center solutions has been selected by the Plainfield (IL) Police Department to help upgrade the agency's current interview recording system with IPVideo’s AVfusion solution.

IPVideo’s AVfusion is a network-based audio/video recording system designed for police interview rooms where recording frame-by-frame, synchronized audio and HD video is critical.  IPVideo was selected to upgrade the precinct’s older, analog system and implement a new IP-based audio/video recording platform.

The Village of Plainfield is a prosperous and bustling community located 35 miles southwest of Chicago, with a population of 40,000 residents. The Plainfield Police Department has 55 officers on staff with seven officers who handle criminal investigations and conduct interviews in five separate interview rooms. IPVideo says the agency wanted an easy way to capture quality audio and video recordings of all interviews. In addition, it was important to have a software system that integrated with the active directory, giving the investigators and officers the ability to view the video recording from a centralized database and log in from their own desks.

Another huge challenge for the department, according to IPVideo, was the time it took to search through audio video recordings.  The existing platform did not give the officers the ability to search by case number or date and time and they would end up spending too much time searching through footage and audio recordings. “Our AVfusion solution helped the Plainfield PD upgrade their video recording platform into a reliable, network-based, state-of-the-art video system that will help investigators with their criminal investigations,” says David Antar, president of IPVideo Corp.

AVfusion replaced the current analog DVR system and 10 Axis IP cameras were installed – 2 per interview room along with audio ceiling microphones that were there to improve the audio quality. In addition, the department was able to save on costs by using one amplifier for both cameras in each interview room, IPVideo says.

“We are extremely happy with our decision to install IPVideo Corporation’s AVfusion solution at the precinct and have seen quite an improvement in our audio and video quality,” states Tom Goral, Information Technology Specialist at Plainfield PD.
