Network Video Technologies Wins By Decision At Muhammad Ali Center

The Muhammad Ali Center is a cultural attraction and international education center inspired by the ideals of its visionary founder, Muhammad Ali.

It features interactive exhibits and captivating multimedia presentations, the centre carries on Ali's legacy and inspires the exploration of the greatness within ourselves. The centre includes a five-screen orientation theatre, timeline of Ali's life, historical Civil Rights era and fight footage, and exhibit galleries.

The Ali Center has over 30 cameras protecting the museum and its underground parking garage. The existing surveillance system transmitted analogue video 800 to 1200ft over traditional coax cable to the control room.

To improve image resolution and flexibility, the museum decided to upgrade to an IP-based system.

To perform the upgrade the Ali Center turned to Tyco Integration Security, who then recommended the Network Video Technologies (NVT) EoC solution based on past successes at other customer sites. Re-deployed coax eliminates the expense of removing old cable and replacing it with new wiring and it also meant zero facility disruption. Furthermore, Power-over-Ethernet signals are easily delivered at extended distances without the need for mid-span repeaters or IDF wiring closets. Successful and trouble-free deployment experiences at other Tyco customers’ sites were other reasons for choosing NVT.

In selecting the NVT EoC solution, the Ali Center was able to install a cost-effective state-of-the-art surveillance upgrade, using existing cable at extended distances with no disruption to visitor enjoyment of the facility.
