Project Completed Ahead of 2015 Mardi Gras Festivities
Dallas, Texas – March 16, 2015 – Guidepost Solutions recently completed the first phase of a multi-million dollar security technology enhancement project at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. Phase one of this project addressed the challenge of monitoring crowd movements within exhibit hall space during largely attended events. Completion was targeted in advance of the 2015 Mardi Gras festivities to be hosted at the convention center, including five Masquerade Balls.
Guidepost Solutions’ technology designers worked with Genetec, a leader in IP-hosted video surveillance technology, to identify ideal camera technology options. The design team found that the Arecont Vision 360 degree and 180-degree camera solutions, provided by Genetec, offered optimal coverage while maintaining budget expectations.
Guidepost Solutions then developed the RFP for the implementation phase of the project which included a very aggressive installation schedule in order to meet the time sensitive deadlines laid out for the project. Siemens Building Technologies was awarded the installation project and completed their scope on time and on budget, continuing an ongoing partnership with the Ernest Morial Convention Center.
