Verint Systems Inc. and EMC Corp. are partnering to deliver the video surveillance system at the new KFC Yum! Center (model pictured) in Louisville, Ky., a sports and concert arena scheduled to open Oct. 10.
The system will manage and store video from a network of Verint VGA cameras and Arecont Vision 3-, 5- and 8-megapixel cameras in the arena and its adjacent 975-car parking garage.
Verint and EMC were worked more than a year to win the deal, said John McKenzie, business development manager for EMC Physical Security, and beat out a number of bidders, including one “local” supplier of end-to-end proprietary video systems that McKenzie declined to name, although it is common knowledge that Louisville is home to the Honeywell Security Group.
The open architecture of the Verint-EMC solution offered the customer, the Louisville Arena Authority, greater return on investment over the long term, McKenzie said. “They can deploy the technology today and be open to the technology available tomorrow,” he said.
