Agent Vi Enhances Security at Montreal’s Convention Center

The Palais des congrès de Montréal (convention center) – a site covering 1.4 million square feet, that hosts conventions, exhibitions and other events – sought a surveillance solution to protect the facilities as well as provide a safe and secure environment for the guests at this vast site.

The Palais des congrès chose Vi-System – Agent Vi’s real-time video analytics solution – and employed a best-of-breed solution comprised of Vi-System, Axis video encoders, and Genetec Omnicast VMS recording and viewing application.

The solution has provided the security team with much greater awareness and an enhanced ability to respond to concerns and incidents. Real-time alerts are received for a range of behaviors and incidents including unauthorized entry though doors designated as exits, movement of people in off-limits areas, loitering in sensitive areas, objects left behind, and unauthorized entry into the car park (tailgating). Additionally, Vi-System enables critical people-counting capabilities, which allows the security team to know if maximum room capacity has been reached.

Robert Charron, Associate Director of Security & Building Services at the Palais des congrès, said that “With over 400 events annually, we face risks and physical security threats to our building and guests on a daily basis. We looked for a solution that would allow us to increase our level of security and safety without employing additional security staff. We chose Vi-System to automate the task of monitoring our surveillance system and this has dramatically improved our response rate, allowing us to act rapidly as the incident unfolds.”
