Full Throttle Saloon intensifies surveillance measures with installation of IQeye megapixel IP cameras
Full Throttle Saloon intensifies surveillance measures with installation of IQeye megapixel IP cameras

10 IQeye megapixel cameras with Milestone's IP software ensure that the Saloon runs smoothly during the RallyIQinVision, market leader in high-performance HD megapixel network cameras, smart IP cameras, and network video recording systems, announced that Michael Ballard's Full Throttle Saloon, the epicentre of the world-famous Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, has deployed a mix of IQeye cameras for security and surveillance at this high-volume cash operation. The integrator for the unique installation is Spearfish, South Dakota-based Clearwater Security and Investigations.With over 30,000 visitors daily, the Full Throttle Saloon is the place to be during the Sturgis Rally in South Dakota each year. This year's 70th Sturgis Rally will be held August 9-15, and the Full Throttle's 300 employees, including 100+ bartenders, can focus on keeping their thousands of customers happy while Clearwater and IQinVision take care of minding the cash and recording any patrons that might want to celebrate a bit too much.Jeff Haasb, owner of Clearwater Security and Investigations, and his team of security experts have an arsenal of tools deployed at the Full Throttle that are more powerful than some of the casinos in Las Vegas: "Using cutting-edge surveillance cameras from IQinVision has made our daunting task much easier. Imagine trying to keep an eye on 30,000 visitors and 100 bartenders. You have got to follow the cash, each transaction, and make sure that Ballard's money stays where it's supposed to stay."Amazingly, 10 IQeyes - six Mini Domes, three Alliance domes, and a single Sentinel - are all that are needed to do the job of protecting people, cash, and all other assets during the week-long celebration and for the rest of the year. Managing high-performance HD megapixel network cameras can be a challenge without the right software, so Haasb chose Milestone Open Platform IP management software to ensure he gets the best from the IQeye cameras. IQeye HD megapixel cameras help to keep an eye on 30,000 visitors and 100 bartenders during the RallyHaasb's been impressed with the system's functionality: "With IQinVision's Alliance Series megapixel cameras, we are able to digitally pan, tilt, and zoom in so close that we can literally count each bill that is placed in the cash register." In addition to closely monitoring the saloon's high-volume cash transaction areas, this year Haasb has added cameras to other sensitive areas like the Full Throttle Saloon Bank, which allows his team to monitor the cash as it makes its way through thousands of bar patrons, to the teller, and into the vault."The new cameras we have deployed this year in the bank will allow us to count each bill, track what the teller is entering into the bank's computer system, and observe the teller place each cash register's net deposit in the vault," Haasb explained. The Full Throttle Saloon stores over 10 terabytes of video, and it can be recalled as necessary for law enforcement, internal documentation, and/or insurance purposes. Full Throttle's owner has been pleased with the increased level of protection his system provides. "Four out of five businesses go out of business because of theft, and bars are close to the top of the list. This system is well worth the investment - it has paid for itself each year," commented Michael Ballard. Managing the massive crowds at the Full Throttle Saloon is also an important security system objective. "With our IQeye cameras, we are able to detect problems a lot of times before they even start," said Haasb. This critical addition to standard bar security enables ground security staff to respond faster and make necessary interventions before problems erupt, leading to a safer, more enjoyable, rally experience for all."I remember my first Sturgis Rally in 1978," recalled Mark Nazarenus, IQinVision Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing. "It's amazing to see how much this event has grown. In 1978, we were just hoping there would be enough outhouses. Now, the Full Throttle Saloon is utilising our leading-edge surveillance technology to keep watch over all the festivities. We are pleased that IQinVision is central to the security solution that helps makes this event safer for everyone."

Arecont Vision enables Davenport Grand hotel to provide a safe, secure, and relaxing hotel experience
Arecont Vision enables Davenport Grand hotel to provide a safe, secure, and relaxing hotel experience

World-class service, sublime surroundings, and luxury within reach are all things you will find at Davenport Hotels in downtown Spokane, Washington. The four-hotel collection runs the gamut from classic to contemporary, full-size to boutique, and historic to modern. Guests can enjoy luxurious spa, wedding, and business facilities, as well as some of the best dining in the city. Davenport history Opened in June 2015, the new 716 room Davenport Grand Hotel offers a unique alternative for travellers who seek a reprieve from the traditional, uninspiring hotel environment. The Davenport Grand provides a lifestyle hotel experience in a highly social atmosphere rich in cutting-edge design, energy, and comfort. The management team knew from the start that an analogue surveillance system would not be sufficient Crafted to appeal to both business and leisure travellers, the Davenport Grand combines the dynamic qualities of urban living with best-in-industry services and amenities in a unique setting. The new Davenport Grand embraces the glorious past of the Davenport Hotel with a bold, modern spirit and joins the historic Davenport Hotel, Davenport Tower, and Davenport Lusso family. Move from analogue to IP Davenport Hotels had relied on an analogue video surveillance system for the existing hotel facilities and structures. For the new Davenport Grand Hotel, hotel management wanted to ensure the safety and security of its guests, employees, and visitors while helping to prevent theft and other loss. It was also important to be able to capture images of the vehicles that come and go from the public garage used by hotel guests. This would enable the hotel to better deal with potential vehicle damage claims, which is a common issue in the hospitality industry. Each of the Davenport Grand’s planned camera applications would require highly detailed video, and the management team knew from the start that an analogue surveillance system would not be sufficient. “We have other hotels that have analogue cameras installed, so getting a more current system with clarity was a priority. We decided we're not going to invest in an older system,” said Kevin Miller, Corporate Director of Security for the Davenport Collection of Properties. Instead, an IP megapixel surveillance camera solution would be required.  Leveraging megapixel technology Hotel management had a system design in mind, which Kevin Jetton, A-TEC’s President, was able to refine based on what he saw after touring the facilityWorking with Spokane-based security firm A-TEC, the hotel narrowed its potential choices down to three camera vendors, each of which submitted a bid for the video surveillance system project. After evaluating all of the products included in the bids, the hotel chose IP megapixel cameras from Arecont Vision, primarily based on image quality. Exacq was chosen as the video management software. “If we’re going to build a new surveillance system, we need to make sure that if we have an incident, we can actually see who was involved,” said Miller. “We wanted an innately high-quality, flexible solution, and we got it with Arecont Vision.” A-TEC software solution Hotel management had a system design in mind, which Kevin Jetton, A-TEC’s President, was able to refine based on what he saw after touring the facility. According to Jetton, the changes were largely based on the ability to cut the hotel’s costs without sacrificing camera coverage. “We pride ourselves on determining what the areas of concern are, how we are going to address them, and what cameras will do the best job,” Jetton said. “We realised we could incorporate SurroundVideo Omni and other Arecont Vision megapixel cameras to lower the camera count and increase overall views.” Before moving forward with the modified design, A-TEC set up a software solution in conjunction with demo cameras provided by Arecont Vision. These were used for test shots to provide to hotel management the types of views they would be able to get with the cameras Jetton recommended. “Once we were able to get it all set up and show them what they were going to get with the reduced camera counts and increased camera views, they were definitely on board,” Jetton said. “I knew what solution needed to be proposed. My partnership with Arecont Vision is unprecedented, and I knew that presenting the Davenport with this solution was going to be a success because we were all working together.” Arecont Vision SurroundVideo Ombi user-configurable omni-directional multi-sensor megapixel cameras were used in the installation, such as in the Grand Bar. Arecont Vision camera families The overall installation included nearly 70 Arecont Vision cameras, all of which were deployed to suit the individual areas in which they were to be used. The installed cameras are from several Arecont Vision families. SurroundVideo® Omni user-configurable omni-directional multi-sensor megapixel cameras  SurroundVideo® 180° panoramic multi-sensor megapixel cameras MicroDome® ultra-low profile megapixel dome cameras MegaBall® megapixel dome cameras A-TEC remained in close contact with Kevin Miller and hotel management to ensure that they knew the details of the project’s progress MegaDome® 2 megapixel dome cameras with remote focus/zoom Throughout the installation, A-TEC remained in close contact with Kevin Miller and hotel management to ensure that they knew the details of the project’s progress and to demonstrate the evolving system as cameras were deployed. Stuart Wells of A-TEC led the onsite installation and integration of the system, working with the Davenport team. “A-TEC did test shots for us before the hotel was even finished so we could see the exact depth, range, and view that we were going to get with each camera,” Miller said. Megapixel solution benefits Davenport Hotels had a number of safety and security goals for its new surveillance system in the Davenport Grand. Hotel management wanted to ensure that the cameras wouldn’t be the first thing guests noticed. With their high quality and their sleek, unobtrusive design, the Arecont Vision cameras have met those needs. “We certainly didn't want to give people the feeling that they're being watched throughout the hotel,” Miller said. “We really like how the low profile of the cameras and the multi-sensor capabilities enabled us to use just one camera opposed to four separate ones.” Shortly after the installation was completed, Jetton conducted a test to see just how unobtrusive the surveillance system was. Proactive and preventative approach to security The Arecont Vision cameras have allowed the Davenport Grand to take a more proactive and preventative approach to security "I took two visitors with me to do a walk-through of the hotel when the installation was first completed and I challenged them to find the cameras. On many different occasions they didn’t even notice that they were in the camera views,” he said. “People are there to relax and enjoy their time away; they don’t want to feel like they are being watched by cameras.” The Arecont Vision cameras have allowed the Davenport Grand to take a more proactive and preventative approach to security, something that would have been missing from an analogue surveillance system. “We can see activity and hopefully stop and report behaviour to prevent things from happening,” Miller said. In terms of return on investment, the ability to avoid claims for which the hotel is not responsible has been a major benefit of the new system in the Davenport Grand. This has been particularly the case with the vehicle valet service. “With the valet service, customers will come in and claim that marks on their vehicle weren’t there when they arrived, and quite honestly, they may believe that’s true. With the Arecont Vision cameras, we’re able to look at the video and say with confidence whether the mark was there when he or she arrived at the hotel,” Miller said. Preventing theft The cameras have also helped with a number of instances of items disappearing from the exterior of the hotel. In one example, the Davenport Grand was able to provide the local police department with video which led to the items being returned and the thieves apprehended. In addition to the Davenport Grand’s potential cost reduction from a lower camera count, savings were realised in other areas as a result of the new surveillance system which is monitored on the premises. “What’s really nice is we can actually view the cameras from several different locations in real-time or in playback,” Miller said. “These cameras help reduce our on-floor manpower and increase our effectiveness because there can be one person on the floor and another person who is watching the cameras, who can cover 10 times more area than one person can on foot.”

HD megapixel cameras from IQinVision keep a watch on miscreants at Slovakian football stadiums
HD megapixel cameras from IQinVision keep a watch on miscreants at Slovakian football stadiums

The Slovak football association has recommended the IQeye video surveillance system for all 18 stadiumsIQinVision, market leader in high-performance HD megapixel network cameras, smart IP cameras, and network video recording systems, announced that, in cooperation with Slovak T-Com, IQinVision HD megapixel cameras are being installed in multiple football (soccer) stadiums throughout Slovakia to combat against "hooligan" violence and create a safer, more enjoyable atmosphere for all who attend football matches. The integrator for this on-going project is Siemens, with custom software provided by Canex Connections.  Thus far, three Slovakian stadiums have installed between 12 and 16 IQeye Alliance cameras at each location to provide panoramic views of all seating terrace areas. Two more stadiums are scheduled to install the same array of IQeye cameras located in approximately six metal cylinders in the infield of each stadium and trained on the seating areas. There are 13 more stadiums considering installation of the same system utilising IQeye HD megapixel technology. Security forces monitor activity in the stadiums from a central control room, where they use the cWatch Stadium Monitor System (from Canex Connections), an advanced new touch-screen control system to monitor camera images, zoom in to quickly and easily identify trouble-makers, and then immediately intervene to stop potential incidents. According to experts, the camera system meets the strictest standards of the European Union (EU). Since August 2009, at least six separate incidents have been observed by the new systems and security forces and/or police have intervened to stop incidents and, when appropriate, prosecute wrong-doers. Incidents have included fights, lighting seats on fire, and burning flags. The newly-installed solution has been welcomed by the highest representatives of Slovakian football. "I am delighted that through the cooperation of the Union League Club, the Slovak Football Association and Slovak Telekom that our football stadiums are now using these advanced camera surveillance systems. This comprehensive solution fully meets the needs and stringent requirements of our Union. I believe that this step will lead to increased security, appreciated not only by all fans of Slovak football, but also the general public," said Charles Belaník, President of the Union League Club (ULK).On the basis of performance to date, the Slovak football (soccer) association has recommended the video surveillance system, powered by IQinVision HD megapixel technology, for all 18 stadiums. All the stadiums are scheduled to have video surveillance systems installed by the end of autumn this year.
