A case study of HD surveillance for Majmaah University in Saudi Arabia, across multiple campus sites.

Majmaah University was founded in 2009; the main campus is in Majmaah city, with satellite sites in Hawtat Sudair and Alghat.

The university security team chose the IDIS DirectIP product with regional security systems installer Digital Media. The networked solution includes 336 pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ), box, dome and infra-red bullet cameras; 18 network video recorders (NVRs); a suite of ISS Expert servers and clients; and 16 DAS systems. A new command centre at Majmaah was equipped with control equipment including an ISS video wall and 512-channel federation server to provide central monitoring across the campus sites, some tens of kilometres apart.

Ahmed Dahi, General Manager of Digital Media said: “Following a thorough review of available surveillance systems, the integrated IDIS DirectIP solution proved an ideal match. Major advantages included the reliable redundancy capabilities to minimise network congestion, failover features to prevent service disruption and one-touch focus rapid response cameras. It was quick and simple to install, while user-friendly software enables the university’s in-house team to easily manage monitoring, playback and reporting from any network device.”

The security manager at Majmaah University said: “Maximising safety for students and staff and across our campus locations is central to our duty of care. Thanks to the IDIS solution, we can easily and cost-effectively maintain high quality security and provide added peace of mind for our students, faculty members, staff and visitors. This in turn is enhancing the quality of the educational environment and supporting our strategic aims.”

Harry Kwon, General Manager of IDIS Middle East and Africa, added, “We are delighted that Majmaah University chose the IDIS DirectIP solution and that it has been so well received. In today’s rapidly expanding and increasingly global university education sector, maintaining a positive reputation as a safe learning environment is vital to the success of any university. We are pleased therefore that IDIS DirectIP is making a valuable contribution to the pursuit of learning and knowledge at one of Saudi Arabia’s newest universities.

“This news also marks the start of an exciting collaboration between IDIS and Digital Media. Thanks to the in-depth expertise of the Digital Media team, the installation was carried out quickly and smoothly without disruption to routine operations. In addition to the expert installation of all network equipment and devices, Digital Media ensured a seamless hand-over to the Majmaah in-house team. We are looking forward to a long, mutually successful partnership.”

DirectIP is as the makers say based on an IP framework, consisting of IP cameras, NVRs, network equipment and client software as a package.
