360 Vision Technology and Meyertech partnership delivers effective ONVIF-compliant systems integration

Promoting the company’s ethos of establishing close technical working partnerships, CCTV design and manufacturing organisation 360 Vision Technology – working in conjunction with systems control company Meyertech – has developed fast and easy set-up and “deep control” for 360 Vision’s range of ONVIF-compliant security cameras.

Right from the outset, the manufacturers’ technical relationship has spearheaded an objective to develop product offerings from both companies that will easily and seamlessly integrate when installed within any application using the ONVIF protocol.

Thanks to the ongoing technical partnership between the two UK-based technology manufacturers, simple product set-up, deep systems integration and performance benefits are built into many applications and sizes of CCTV installations across the globe.

However, the manufacturers’ long-term technical partnership extends much further than just a shared protocol, as Mark Rees (business development director at 360 Vision Technology) explained to Risk UK.

“From the design stage of any new product, our respective R&D teams interact to ensure the camera equipment we introduce to market is as best performing and simple to set-up and use as it can possibly be.”

For installations using the enterprise-class FUSION-Eclipse Video Management Software (VMS) through to the simple (four-camera) Nano VMS, the deployment of 360 Vision Technology’s ONVIF-compliant cameras offers simple two-click integration with any Meyertech control solution.

David Wood, business development executive for Meyertech, stated: “Users of our FUSION-Eclipse VMS software simply select the ‘Discovery’ tool and then add the desired 360 Vision camera from the list of devices available in a drop down menu. The camera is then ready for use in the system. Further to that, the usual IP camera options such as frame rate and video resolution are easily configured in an intuitive sub menu. Features such as IR and white lights, wipers and pre-set tours on 360 Vision’s Predator cameras can be selected directly.”

In this way, any 360 Vision camera can be integrated into a Meyertech-controlled CCTV system in minutes. The partnership continues to ensure that 360 Vision cameras are as simple as possible to integrate into existing systems or add to new installations, in turn minimising installation times and maximising system performance.

Rees concluded: “360 Vision Technology is always looking to partner with like-minded CCTV systems integration manufacturers. With our long term technical relationship with Meyertech, we’re not only ensuring installers and end users can enjoy a fully-integrated, hassle-free systems control experience, but also promoting the benefits to be gained by specifying ‘Best of British’ integrated surveillance solutions.”

Bloodstock’s heavy metal fans united and protected thanks to Showsec’s event management expertise

In many respects, Bloodstock Open Air is one big family reunion. The great success of this year’s event in the picturesque Derbyshire setting of Catton Park in Walton on Trent portrayed once again why the gathering continues to enhance its reputation for being the United Kingdom’s largest dedicated heavy metal festival.    

Founded and organised by the Gregory family, Bloodstock plays host to a ‘metal family’ of 15,000 fans in tandem with a Showsec family of staff who have become familiar faces at the festival due to their enjoyment of the working experience.

As well as the heavy metal band line-up – headlined this year by Within Temptation, Trivium and Rob Zombie – one of the other big attractions was an art exhibition featuring the work of the festival’s co-founder, Paul Raymond Gregory. This included Gregory’s work-in-progress dubbed ‘Mordor Festival’ which made another appearance in the RAM Gallery by the Main Stage, along with many other fantasy artwork pieces including a unique design of the festival’s popular logo.

The ‘Mordor Festival’ is inspired by Tolkien and has a unique frame, which now features the Showsec logo along with many other partners of Bloodstock Open Air.

“Our support of the art exhibition is a good example of how we’ve worked closely with the Gregory family to help develop the very unique and special festival community at Bloodstock Open Air,” explained Showsec’s operations executive Darren Evans, himself a heavy metal fan who used to attend the festival before he began working for the business.

“We have a great relationship with all who work at Bloodstock,” continued Evans. “Everyone knows everyone and this all adds to the success of the event. It’s like a big family gathering with a real sense of togetherness and community spirit which ensures the festival is enjoyed by all attendees. A large number of our staff really look forward to working at Bloodstock. So much so, in fact, that staff from as far afield as Wales are willing to travel to Catton Park to work there.”

Interaction with the fans

In praising the contribution of Showsec, Bloodstock director Adam Gregory cited an example of interaction with the fans which highlights the important role that’s played in creating such a good-natured and friendly atmosphere.

“Showsec provides a pivotal team to help with Bloodstock each year,” enthused Gregory. “The staff are friendly and welcoming to all while at the same time ensuring that the fans’ safety is their top priority throughout the festival. Bloodstock fans have embraced the Showsec team and consider them very much a part of the family.”

Gregory continued: “Walking through the crowds on the Saturday, I personally heard one of the fans asking a Showsec staff member for his name and he said: ‘Great to meet you’, which I thought was a really nice gesture. It goes to show exactly how the working relationship between Bloodstock and Showsec has grown. Showsec’s staff understand how to be in control without being aggressive in any way. We look forward to a continued partnership with the business.”

This was the 15th year that Bloodstock has been staged and, for the last six of those years, Showsec have been influential in developing the event’s special atmosphere.

Although some of the sights were pretty scary, including Predator, Zombies, Judge Dredd and a clown sporting a gas mask, you cannot fail to see that the environment is a huge metal family primarily there to ‘rock out’ and have fun.

Experienced team in the pit

One metal fan wrote on the festival’s Facebook page: “I love the Showsec personnel. They’re all really nice people, a lot of whom seemed to love the music as well. Maybe that’s why the same personnel seem to sign up for working at the event every year.”

While the good nature of its followers and the community spirit generate a special atmosphere, there’s nevertheless an important role for Showsec to fulfil in terms of ensuring Bloodstock is an enjoyable experience for all in attendance.

An important element of that operation is having an experienced pit team in place to manage the enthusiasm and sheer energy within the crowd.

For the fifth year in a row, Bloodstock partnered with the Teenage Cancer Trust. Since beginning that relationship in 2011, over £21,000 has been raised for the charity, with the money going to help the UK’s teenagers and young adults who have cancer.
