The Secure Video Visitation Booth (SVVB) from Tate® Inc. is a secure enclosure facilitating offender video conferencing in correctional facilities. The product is the first in the Fast Flexible Cell product line, which was developed to deliver a variety of prefabricated, modular units to address the emerging needs of the corrections industry. The SVVB modular units can replace in-person visits requiring confidentiality, including legal consultations, judicial hearings, mental competency hearings, telehealth appointments and family visitation. SVVB has been developed in collaboration with correctional industry leaders including Ross & Baruzzini, River City Construction and Salke Advisory Group.
Utilization of the SVVB reduces the cost of operating prisons and jails by reducing offender transport, and therefore improving safety and security for offenders, staff and civilians. Additionally, limiting civilian entrances minimizes disease transmission, which can be devastating and costly for correctional institutions. The flexibility of the SVVB allows for direct placement in housing units for enhanced control of offender movement. The units can be grouped together in unit blocks to allow a single correctional officer to supervise multiple offenders simultaneously, reducing personnel costs. The SVVB qualifies for Federal Cares Act expenditures.
The detention-grade SVVB unit is manufactured in the United States and is easy to install. By design, its plug and play capability works with the facility’s preferred video hardware and videoconferencing system. Additionally, it provides confidential acoustics, is ADA compliant and is customizable in terms of orientation and integrated components.
