Aimetis announced that Aimetis Symphony™ has been deployed as the video management software platform for The China Art Museum in Shanghai.

Aimetis Symphony provided The China Art Museum with a single platform to upgrade its existing CCTV system to an IP network-based solution, that includes a scalable system to easily add new network cameras as needed. The system is also one of the largest installations in the region, using the latest technology available in network cameras from Axis Communications.

“We selected an integrated solution from Axis and Aimetis because of system scalability, openness and compatibility. These benefits will allow us to drastically improve our monitoring immediately and also give us flexibility to adapt to our long-term interests. With Axis’ industry- leading IP cameras and the stable platform of Aimetis Symphony, our monitoring system has improved functionality and enhanced user experience,” said Liu Chengfa, Director of Security Department, The China Art Palace.

Aimetis partnered with Shangan, a leading systems integration company that provided the system installation and project management, to deliver a turn-key solution. “Aimetis Symphony is the centrepiece of our network video solutions offering,” said Gao Qi, Project Manager, Shangan. “The software is easy to administer and scales nicely to meet the needs of large enterprise projects like The China Art Museum,”

The China Art Museum has installed Aimetis Symphony to work with 1,200 new and existing analogue and IP cameras, with approximately 5% of cameras running Aimetis video analytics. The number of cameras is estimated to increase to 1,500 as China Art Museum grows and expands.

“The open architecture of this solution made it possible for us to make full use of the infrastructure the museum already had, including analogue cameras, network facilities and video walls. This capability protected our initial investment and achieved substantial savings in human and material resources.” said Chen Sheng, Supervisor of Security Systems, The China Art Museum.

“Applications with large numbers of cameras is one of the key vertical markets where Aimetis solutions add tremendous value to our customers” said Marc Holtenhoff, Chief Executive Officer, Aimetis. “We are extremely pleased that The China Art Museum has selected Aimetis Symphony as its video management platform.”
