SAN ANTONIO, Texas - April 24, 2007 - MDI, Inc., the leading provider of Unified Technology solutions for the security industry, today announced that it has teamed with Unified Solutions Partner North American Video to launch a state-of-the-art system at the new Atlantis Cove Resort, located on Paradise Island in Nassau, Bahamas. With over 600 guest suites and 21 floors, the property sits atop two of the most beautiful beaches in the world (Cove and Paradise Beaches). The resort and casino officially opened last month.
The Kerzner International resort property dominates the island's real estate and employs over 6,000 residents. It includes 11 lagoons, 11 swimming pools, 35 restaurants, 21 bars and clubs, a golf course, the largest casino in the Caribbean and a major convention center on site. North American Video's professional integration team spearheaded the high-profile project, utilizing the proven capabilities of the MDI ONE Unified Technology Platform as its security command and control solution.
"The MDI solution was specifically requested by the Atlantis security team based on its proven capabilities as a unified system," said Cyndi Freschi, President of North American Video. "We are experts in providing security solutions that solve complex problems to casinos and gaming establishments across the world and the open architecture customization capabilities of the MDI system have really impressed our professional integration team. The technology is far beyond that of most typical integrated software and is able to accomplish security requirements that no other system that we have worked with can meet. We are excited to be partnered with MDI and look forward to installing more of their systems, on some of our largest projects, in the future," she added.
The MDI system is currently controlling over one thousand edge devices on the Atlantis project including end points on slot machine doors, retail stores and secure counting rooms to name a few. The system is integrated with North American Video's complete line of video surveillance products and utilizes their best-in-class consoles, power supplies, workstations and racks. The North American Video team is currently working on expanding the system to additional new facilities on the property.
"North American Video is one of the most innovative and forward-thinking integrated security providers in the industry and we are very happy to be partnered with them on this key initiative," stated J. Collier Sparks, President and CEO of MDI, Inc. "The selection of our platform on this complex project is a testament of its capabilities. Because of MDI Unified Solutions Partners like the professionals at North American Video, our company continues to gain momentum in the commercial security arena as the solution of choice on large complex integration projects," he concluded.
