GITAM University takes safety and security business very seriously. It has setup closed-circuit television (CCTV) units in campus for security and monitoring activities. GITAM deployed about 300 cameras which operates 24x7. The video footage is recorded and stored in secure data centre and is made available on demand. GITAM has deployed high end digital network cameras with resolutions ranging from 1 MP to 3 MP, and are also equipped with night vision recording. We retain the video data for 3 months and in some cases up to 6 months. All the three campuses are under video surveillance, and CATS has the ability to monitor the health of the cameras from its NOC centre in Visakhapatnam.
