Future Proofing Video Surveillance at Orange County Convention's 2.5 Million Square Foot Facility
The Orange County Convention Center (OCCC), located in Orlando, Florida, is the nation's second largest convention facility and a world-class destination. The complex is comprised of two separate buildings connected by a 1,500 foot, open-air bridge with moving sidewalks across International Drive.
OCCC sought to increase the effectiveness of their surveillance operations by replacing its analog cameras and video encoders with superior performance IP cameras. During an extensive camera evaluation process, Manny Rustia, MIS Analyst for the OCCC, and his colleagues narrowed the choice down to cameras with resolution above 3 megapixels with H.264 compression and day/night capabilities as a way of “future-proofing” the system. “Arecont Vision was the hands-down standout based on megapixel quality and price,” said Rustia.
