|Comvox Systems deployed the VMS with use of the Aimetis Symphony server client
Aimetis Corp., a global leader in intelligent video management software, recently announced that The Peabody Hotel in Orlando, Florida, a 350,000-square-foot multi-use convention, spectator, show and banquet center connected to a four-star-rated 1,641-luxury-room hotel is utilising Aimetis Symphony to improve infrastructure security and operational efficiency.
Comvox Systems, an Aimetis Certified Reseller located in Jacksonville, Florida deployed the intelligent video management system with use of both Aimetis Symphony server client as well as Mobile application.
This deployment was granted an award from a new program on behalf of the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4), sponsored by SDM. This award is in direct recognition of excellence in system integration at sporting venues.
Aimetis Symphony was selected as the software of choice due to robust video analytics and the open architecture system. The system monitoring, analysing and reporting throughout the entire building, immediately improves security and enhances the management of core operational processes.
Comvox Systems installed and programmed 489 Panasonic IP cameras and converted 35 Panasonic analogue cameras to IP output for this deployment.
Camera recording and video analytics were achieved by upgrading existing systems to Microsoft-based servers running Aimetis Symphony Enterprise Analytics and Basic recording and viewing software. Aimetis’ mobile client allows key security and management personnel to view alarms and cameras on Panasonic ToughPads via the hotel’s Wi-Fi network.
The use of Panasonic ToughPads with access to all of the cameras has resulted in a flexible, mobile solution. Alarms are sent to the appropriate internal personnel for immediate follow-up and action.
This has allowed management to identify recurring problems and issues related to pedestrian and vehicular traffic. The system also allows Peabody personnel to concentrate on protecting guests and employees; reduce liability; help deter criminal activity; and apprehend and prosecute offenders.
A combination of a dozen different Panasonic i-Pro PTZ, dome and fixed camera models were strategically positioned in and around the convention center to provide comprehensive coverage of the facility. Now security can track individuals and events, quickly dispatching guards and police as soon as they believe questionable activity has taken place. This has reduced costs, increased coverage and allowed management to deploy personnel where and when they are most needed.
