Courthouse Project Includes Video Surveillance, Access Control

By Brian Albright, Business Solutions magazine

A security integration platform has helped this integrator secure a place at the table for large government projects.

Video surveillance systems and associated video management systems (VMS) have become a larger part of the security landscape, but they are just one part. In many installations, VMS works in conjunction with access control, perimeter security, and other solutions (like building automation), and end users have sought out ways to better coordinate these various solutions.

Ottawa-based Marcomm Systems Group (MSGI), founded in 1991, specializes in the design, supply, and installation of electronic security and control systems. In addition to offering a wide range of access control, surveillance, video management, and other solutions, the company has developed its own security solution (DYNATROL) that simplifies user operation by integrating the disparate components of security and building management systems via an intuitive GUI, a custom report generator, and dynamic facility maps.
