Flat-Panel Visitation

VUGate Inc. recently expanded its line of steel equipment enclosures for its inmate video-visitation system. The Flat Panel Visitation Module augments VUGate’s longstanding line of steel enclosures, including full size visitation enclosures for traditional television monitors and mobile roll-about enclosures, supporting up to 27″ televisions, for segregation, medical and arraignment uses.

The Flat Panel Visitation Module can be surface mounted at standing height or with an optional stool for seating. According to the company, the unit provides the smallest space footprint on the market, important for retrofitting visitation into existing jails and for mounting in locations previously not usable for inmate video visits.

The air vent holes are positioned to be inconspicuous and prevent accidental liquid spills. A baffled interior design provides forced air circulation, resulting in internal temperatures as little as five degrees over outside ambient air temperatures, providing maximum equipment life.

The enclosures are available in a variety of powder-coated colors, including custom colors to match existing d?cor, or in polished stainless steel. The viewing windows are available in polycarbonate or tempered glass up to 1/2″ thick.

Units can optionally be equipped with dual handsets or hands-free sound. All units provide video at 30 frames per second for the clearest possible pictures. When utilized in new construction, power and cabling connections can be totally hidden. For retrofit into existing facilities surface mount cabling is supported, the company says.
