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.
