MTI has developed a new way to connect family and friends with their loved ones in detention centers. If the detention center is equipped with MTI's Video Visitation system and the visitor has the correct computer hardware and internet connection, distance is no longer an issue.
Attorneys, clergy, counselors, and bonding agents can also use our system to visit with inmates using a suitably equipped office computer.
This feature provides the ability to schedule video visitation directly from your home computer, whether you are participating in "from home" Internet based video visitation or on-site visitation. This feature is already in use at facilities in the USA and has received great reviews from those who have used it.
This feature is beneficial to the detention facility because it provides a more streamlined approach to video visitation scheduling and administration in which the visitor provides all information and schedules the visit. Most of the decision making process can be handled by the system software, which cuts down on the amount of labor needed to implement this feature. Also, the new "from home" feature provides more visitation space without adding brick and mortar.
