Great Ormond Street Hospital Relies on DVTel to Protect Patients

DVTel chosen over multiple VMS providers for world-renowned children’s hospital

Birmingham, UK and Ridgefield Park, NJ, May 23, 2011 — DVTel, Inc., a multiple award-winning market leader in Smart Security Solutions for video surveillance, today announced that the Great Ormond Street Hospital, London, UK, has selected DVTel from among eight video management software providers as the central platform for a newly-upgraded IP video management system.

The DVTel solution will manage data from more than 160 IP, High Definition (HD) and analogue cameras, covering the entire hospital complex and monitored from a Central Command video wall, along with dedicated workstations throughout the hospital (where required), and possibly in the future from portable devices such as an iPad. Check Your Security Ltd. performed a CCTV audit at the hospital prior to the project going to tender and was then eventually selected as the integrator for this on-going, high profile project.

Since its founding in 1852, Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) has been dedicated to children’s healthcare. Each year, there are over 170,000 patient visits to the hospital. GOSH is at the forefront of pediatric care and nurse and doctor training in the UK. For such a venerable, visible institution, the choice and installation of an advanced, highly effective security system to protect patients and staff was extremely important.

The hospital approached Check Your Security (CYS) in 2010 seeking to significantly upgrade their disparate analogue video surveillance systems. As a starting point, CYS recommended their Enterprise Audit service. The Audit evaluated every piece of security and network equipment to provide a comprehensive picture of exactly what was in place, technology capabilities, legacy equipment to be utilized in a future solution, and a list of hardware and software options to meet their current security goals.
