VISE

VISE PHASE 1

The main campus of the Indian Institute of Science has an area of 400 acres with a perimeter of 8 Km. There are 9 gates in the main campus accessible by motor vehicles and one pedestrian gate near the health centre. This is a residential campus with student hostels and housing for the families of a large fraction of the Institute Faculty and employees.

In addition to students, faculty, the employees and their families, the IISc  campus plays a host to a large number of academic visitors, non IISc students attending workshop and courses. IISc has a sprawling main campus with scattered buildings, extensive tree covered roads and streets, and hardly any access control except the gates. Under these circumstances, it is practically not feasible to monitor the campus with security guards of reasonable size.

With this in mind, the present committee was set up in March 2012 (as listed below) and assigned the task of studying the possibility of monitoring the campus with strategically placed network IP cameras.

Committee Members

  • Prof. Anurag Kumar, ECE (CHAIR)
  • Prof. R.Govindarajan, SERC
  • Prof. B.S.Rajanikanth, EE
  • Prof. K.R.Ramakrishnan, EE
  • Prof. R.Venkatesh Babu, SERC
  • Dr.T.V.Prabhakar, DESE
  • Mr. T.Shankar, CSA
  • Mr. B.K.A.N Singh, DESE
  • Dr. Panneer Selvam, Administration
  • Mr. M.R. Chandrasekar, Security Officer

The committee had discussions with several representatives of the institute community and finally decided to prepare an RFI (request for information) after getting their valuable inputs.

The following locations were identified for camera based monitoring as listed below

CURRENT STATUS: All the cameras are functioning satisfactorily.   The recorder with NAS storage is also functioning satisfactorily.

VISE PHASE A

The project VISE PHASE A has been completed successfully and rides on the existing campus network.This phase has covered 35 key locations as identified by the Chief Security Officer comprising a total of 64 cameras. The cameras deployed are 3MP,Varifocal,motorised focus and zoom control suitable for both day and night operations with built in IR source for night vision.

All the cameras are being monitored at the security control room on a 55 inches LED display

Monitor and being continuously recorded in a 64 Channel NVR(Network Video Recorder) withsufficient hard disk capacity to store recordings upto 30 days. The NVR is in DIGITS serverRoom. The vendor who has executed this project is M/S Bell Teleservices. Cameras and NVR are from UNIVIEW (OEM).  All the camera location details are provided below.

PHASE A will also extend few cameras to be installed in the new chemical sciences complex andin Main library.This work will be taken up shortly. It is also proposed to start PHASE B to cover the remaining locations once the new campus OFC network work gets completed.
