In this case study, security system supplier, CVSS installs an effective and compliant system from Redvision to secure Thorpe Park Resort.
Before Thorpe Park Resort was established as one of the world’s largest visitor attractions, its estate was demolished in the 1930s, leaving behind a partially flooded gravel pit. This created a unique opportunity to develop a water-based theme for the park, which later lead to the marketing strap line “An Island Like No Other”. Since Lord Louis Mountbatten officially opened the park to the public, Thorpe Park has continually expanded to become one of the nation’s favourites.
In need of a rugged CCTV system, security supplier CVSS Limited used a surveillance solution from Redvision for the resort that is built to last. Arran Henderson, Managing Director of CVSS Ltd commented, “We have a great relationship with Redvision CCTV, and their UK heritage as industry experts in manufacturing rugged CCTV cameras made them a perfect fit for Thorpe Park.”
CVSS installed custom coloured X2 COMBAT IP PTZ cameras on the entrance arch at Thorpe Park resort. Thorpe Park’s widely recognisable blue was matched and the PTZ cameras powder-coated the same colour. The versatile X2 has optional Power over Ethernet, enabling simple plug and play experience utilising connectivity via the RJ45 socket in the base of the camera, operating over a full 100m Cat 5e span. Redvision provided custom standoff brackets, 300mm in length, colour matched to fit the project.
Henderson added: “We have had great success with Redvision CCTV equipment at Thorpe Park resort, previously having installed over 100 VEGA rugged
camera housings. These were fitted with the Customer’s choice of camera and lens, to suit each scene and location to their exacting requirements. This recent install
continues to demonstrate the flexibility of solution available from Redvision CCTV.”
Thorpe Park are reportedly delighted by the recent upgrades to their CCTV, which has been operating seamlessly with the additional custom colour enabling the powerful imagery of the iconic entrance arch to remain undisturbed. The long-life silicone wiper has permitted continuous high definition surveillance even after being splashed by a Tidal Wave, one of Europe’s tallest water rides.
