|The project enables Genetec to demonstrate its latest unified IP security solutions in a simulated control room
Leading control room furniture manufacturer, Winsted has supplied a customised console solution at the Genetec UK Solutions Centre, located in Reading, UK. The project enables the physical IP security solutions provider to demonstrate the very latest in their unified IP security solutions in a simulated control room.
For over 15 years, Genetec has led the development of world-class IP security systems, providing unified video surveillance, access control and automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) solutions in a flexible, open platform that supports hundreds of hardware and software partners around the globe.
Provide functionality for hi-tech demonstration area
Winsted was commissioned to provide a console that would not only provide functionality for the hi-tech demonstration area, but also fit the space available within the multi-functional room that is also used for training purposes. Julie McGill, from Winsted’s Business Development team explains that the solution lay in using a Prestige Insight console. This incorporates all the benefits of Winsted’s popular Sight-Line range, but packages them within a compact profile with a smaller footprint.
Attractively finished in Genetec’s corporate colours with a blue work surface with coordinating white side panels, the console allows use of Winsted’s Versa-Trak display mounting system for ergonomic comfort and adjustability. Combined with VESA-compliant brackets, Versa-Trak has enabled three 21inch flat panel screens to be easily attached and provides horizontal and vertical adjustability for optimal viewing angles and sight lines for operators. The console also offers long-term advantages through its modular design, which allows the console to be adapted to meet changing future requirements, thereby extending its operational lifespan.
Commenting on collaboration with Winsted
Commenting on its collaboration with Winsted, Genetec’s Business Development Manager for EMEA, Simon Barnes, confirmed that the company is pleased with both the standard of equipment and the service provided. “We actually assembled the console ourselves and can vouch for the quality of the components and instructions provided. Great thought and experience has clearly gone into the engineering and use of the Winsted console”.
