Prioritizing the Safety and Protection of Your Patients & Visitors
We know the healthcare industry doesn’t get breaks. The safety and security of hospital staff, patients, visitors, buildings and any surrounding areas is an all year-round concern 24/7. Intelligent video security technology is always evolving so it’s crucial to keep up with the latest solutions.

Secured Access for Your Healthcare Facilities
Healthcare organizations especially can be an active and complex environment. An Emergency Room is a prime example of why high level security is necessary to ensure the safety and security.
“Our Emergency Department and its waiting room is a very active location. Gunshot victims, gang retaliation, Sheriff Department transfers, and mental health transfers. Having high quality video without blind spots is very important.”
— Director of Security, Hospital
An ED does not shut down and the system installation would need to take place during a normal course of business. The existing system would need to be removed using infection-control cubes which require a knowledge specialty. The ED waiting room is an L-shape thus there is a need for more than one high resolution camera. The ED patient area has multiple hallways, a large nurse station, and several offices.
Konica Minolta partnered with the hospital’s existing physical security system company who is already trained on the use of infection control cubes and already knows the ceiling space of the hospital. Konica Minolta worked on the design of the camera system to include 6 megapixel fish-eye cameras to eliminate blind spots and provide the Security Operations Center a total view of the ED areas. The cameras integrated into the client’s existing video management software platform.
All camera blind spots were eliminated with the installation of the new video surveillance cameras that provide 360-degree views. The new cameras also tripled the resolution/image quality over the previous system.
