Avigilon, the performance and value leader in high definition (HD) and megapixel video surveillance systems, today announced that they have installed the Avigilon HD Surveillance System to monitor traffic at Greenwich Peninsula, a new district in London surrounding the world-class music, sports, and entertainment complex, The O2. The Avigilon HD Surveillance System has also been installed at indigO2, a 2,350 capacity live music venue inside The O2.
“With the Avigilon HD Surveillance System installed, we are confident that we can achieve full coverage of the entire area surrounding The O2 and capture the image detail required for better overall public security at this world-class venue,” said Gilbert Yule, facilities management consultant for Greenwich Peninsula. Trained by the experts at Direct Security, security professionals were up and running on the Avigilon system quickly and smoothly. “Using the Avigilon HD Surveillance System, operators can easily manage images to review footage and pinpoint specific details for positive identification.”
Operators at The O2 Operational Control Room manage the Avigilon HD Surveillance System using Avigilon Control Center network video management software (NVMS) with HD Stream Management. Avigilon HD cameras ranging from one to 16 megapixels were installed around the exterior of The O2 to monitor high-traffic areas and capture license plate and facial details, and at all entrances at indigO2 to identify incoming ticket holders. Several Avigilon Analog Video Encoders were installed to create a hybrid surveillance system that dramatically improves the performance of PTZ analog cameras in a very cost effective manner. An Avigilon Network Video Recorder stores up to 31 days of continuous surveillance video and additional workstations were set up at the Greenwich Peninsula Business Centre and the nearby Transport for London building.
