NAV Project Initiates Standardized Surveillance Platform for MGM Resorts Intl Properties
Located between the Bellagio and Monte Carlo Resorts on the
famed Las Vegas Strip, the new CityCenter is big, even by
The CityCenter project is the first deployment of a standardized surveillance platform, designed by NAV, for other MGM Resorts International properties. The custom hybrid solution at CityCenter is built around the Honeywell VMS and features multiple matrix systems spread across seven different head-end locations with monitoring in six separate monitor rooms; six different access control rooms tying together approximately 300 controlled doors; PSIM (physical security information system) integration and management control; and a fiber backbone tying all properties and systems together. More than 3,700 video surveillance cameras provide detailed images on a 24/7/365 basis.
“This project was a challenge to both NAV and the client because of the sheer scale and variety of applications across the multi-use development,” said Jason Oakley, CEO, North American Video. “We were successful in delivering this project on time and on budget by working in close cooperation with the MGM Resorts team to ensure their needs were met and their technology investment protected.”
The enterprise system provides versatile features needed for surveillance of the mega complex, including simultaneous record, playback and viewing of live or recorded material, internal and external redundancy, and backup and advanced networking capabilities. Oncam IPC 5 megapixel 360-deg. cameras are used in selected locations in order to provide full 360 deg. persistent situational awareness; complete scenes can be viewed in panoramic or multi-view screen mode. The 360-deg. cameras are additionally capable of generating intrusion alerts upon motion detection and other alarm events, and of notifying personnel via e-mail and/or ftp, complete with images of the event.
NAV developed a local team led by five different project managers
to help advance project efficiency. All racks, enclosures and integrated
systems were built, tested and commissioned locally at NAV’s Western Region headquarters
CityCenter is a joint venture between MGM Resorts International and Infinity World Development Corp. (a subsidiary of Dubai World). The urban metropolis covers 18 million square feet and cost $8.5 billion to build. It includes 17,000 miles of electrical wiring and 7,000 miles of telecom, security and A/V cabling.
