Midland County Jail Enhances Security With Panasonic System Solutions

Publish date:

SECAUCUS, NJ--A modern new 250-bed jail will replace the currently overcrowded 98-bed facility next year in Midland County, Michigan, and digital video surveillance technology from Panasonic System Solutions Company will boost security at the $25 million, 103,000-square foot facility.

Midstate Security, LLC of Grandville, MI, has been awarded the contract to install the Panasonic System Solutions digital video surveillance system. The jail project was designed by Bob Bayers at Tower, Pinkster & Titus Associates, Kalamazoo, MI for the Midland County Sheriff, Jerry Nielsen.

The surveillance system will include 87 Panasonic i-Pro network cameras, many of which are ruggedized megapixel day/night fixed dome IP cameras that feature a 1280x960 megapixel image sensor with dual streaming MPEG-4/JPEG digital output at up to 30 images per second and Power over Ethernet (PoE). Other Panasonic i-Pro cameras to be installed include an assortment of vandal-proof network day/night fixed dome cameras and weather-resistant network day/night pan-tilt-zoom dome cameras with Super Dynamic III (SDIII) technology which provides exceptional images in difficult lighting situations.

The Panasonic i-Pro cameras will provide images to two network video recorders (NVRs), each with nine removable 1 terabyte (TB) hard disk drives, providing a total of 18TB of expandable storage. Displaying the images will be fourteen Panasonic 42-inch plasma displays, and operators will use 13 universal system controllers with joysticks for PTZ operation and a numeric keypad for direct access to cameras. Panasonic's i-Pro Management Software will control the system. Using Panasonic's state of the art IP Matrix solution, which is based on the WJ-GXD400 HD decoder and WJ-MPU955A CPU, allows for Matrix-like controls which provide the same feel as an analog system with the flexibility of an IP-based solution.

The Midland County Jail is scheduled to open in September 2009.
