Verint Delivers Physical Security Solution at New Multi-Site Arena
When construction is completed for the KFC Yum! Center in October, it will implement the Nextiva IP Video Management platform from Verint Video Intelligence Solutions. Verint, along with its integration partners EMC and Orion Systems Group, is delivering the robust physical security solution for the new $252 million, 22,000-seat basketball and multi-purpose arena on the Ohio River waterfront in Louisville, Ky.
The KFC Yum! Center is operated by the Kentucky State Fair Board (KSFB) and is part of a $450 million project that will include a 975-car parking structure and floodwall. The University of Louisville basketball women’s and men’s teams will be the primary tenants in the arena complex, though conventions, ice shows and other collegiate sport championships also will use the facility. The facility is expected to be the fifth largest college basketball arena in the nation.
The Nextiva platform will perform in conjunction with the high-performance EMC CLARiiON storage to continuously record and archive video data for viewing incidents in real time from virtually anywhere. Together, EMC and Verint help improve management of video surveillance data from capture through monitoring, analyzing, protecting, securing, archiving and evidence authentication through a jointly engineered, IP-based software solution.
“The Kentucky State Fair Board wants to be at the forefront of technology in our state-of-the-art facilities,” explains Alicia Dunlap, director of division of information technology for the Kentucky State Fair Board. “At KFC Yum! Center, we want all athletes, sporting personnel, performers, event staff, fans and visitors to feel safe and secure both within and around the facility. We believe the Verint video security system will help us deter threats, and fully meet the expectations and security requirements of the public and other stakeholders.”
