St. Joseph’s Health Care London Enlists Tyco Security Products for Video System Upgrade

Hospital system migrates video system to IP with new cameras, servers and victor video management system

WESTFORD, MA — April 2, 2015 – Tyco Security Products, part of Tyco, the world’s largest pure-play fire protection and security company, announced today that St. Joseph’s Health Care London, Ontario, has chosen its unified security solution to provide a single management platform for increased security across the organization.

With St. Joseph’s upgrade to the victor video management system and installation of Illustra IP cameras and VideoEdge servers, the hospital’s surveillance system will be integrated in one management platform across the health network’s three major hospital sites.  With advanced reporting capabilities and increased image precision, the victor video management system incorporates both new IP cameras and existing analog cameras, giving St. Joseph’s the flexibility to prioritize upgrades of legacy equipment over time.

“This project has optimized our camera system, giving us much better security overall,” said Mike Bessegato, Director, Fire & Security Services at St. Joseph’s Health Care London. “The victor platform brings us immediate playback with no latency in our real-time viewing, so our guards can react to events faster.” In addition, higher resolution allows the organization to capture clearer images, such as facial features and license plates, which can be sent to other security personnel or first responders.

Along with its integrator partner of more than 20 years, Integrated Video & Surveillance Inc., London, Ontario, St. Joseph’s began installing new Illustra IP cameras in one of the hospital’s recent wing additions, in addition to upgrading some of its 600 existing cameras to Illustra IP models. The organization chose Illustra fisheye cameras to give St. Joseph’s a 360-degree view in corridor intersections and other strategic locations, increasing square footage and angle coverage using fewer cameras. In addition, the victor video management system allows St. Joseph’s to harness the full capabilities of its surveillance system with sophisticated analytics and faster video playback.

Founded in 1869, St. Joseph’s Health Care London is one of Ontario’s leading teaching hospitals, ranked as one of Canada’s top ten research hospitals by the Lawson Health Research Institute. St. Joseph’s is comprised of St. Joseph’s Hospital, Parkwood Hospital, Southwest Centre for Forensic Mental Health Care, Parkwood Institute Mental Health Care and Mount Hope Centre for Long Term Care. Affiliated with the University of Western Ontario (Western University), St. Joseph’s Health Care London hosts annually more than 2,000 students from colleges and universities around the world. Its 4,200 employees and 800-plus physicians complete approximately 22,700 day surgeries and 33,200 urgent care each year.
