Everyday, thousands of inmates meet with their families hoping to hear positive news. In fact, any good news is necessary for prisoners as emotions can easily break even the most hardened criminals. Perhaps, physical trauma is not as harmful as the emotional trauma of living away from families.
The lack of communication can take its toll on families, too. Most of inmate’s families spend a large part of their paycheck on calling their loved ones inside the prison. As such, it is also normal for many of them to spend countless hours every week planning trips to State prisons. Often a trip consumes an entire day because visitors need to go through several security inspections. In addition, the travel expense is a major financial burden.
Fortunately, there is ray of hope as Securus Technologies has created a powerful application that will help inmates and their families cope with everyday trauma. The revolutionary software is called Securus Video Visitation. As the name suggests, it allows face-to-face video communication. While it is true that there are lots of video communication software in the market, video communication inside prisons is a complicated affair. For instance, video chat from prison requires a powerful software that is able to transfer data at high speeds and ensure that the data is transmitted safely across the prison walls. As most prisons have multiple security layers, it is almost impossible for traditional video software to operate in a complex prison environment.
Overcoming these challenges, Securus Video Visitation has surpassed expectations by offering streamlined video conferencing at high speeds ensuring safety and consistency of video. In addition, the user-friendly application can be played across a variety of devices including tablets, desktop and smartphones. Overall, Securus Video Visitation is a powerful tool that allows inmates and families to remain in touch, everyday.
