Five-star hotel impressed by IQeye camera’s image quality, performance and that megapixel technology cuts project costs by reducing overall number of cameras needed

The Opera Hotel Presides Over where Europe and Asia Meet

An important cost benefit for the hotel in using IQinVision HD megapixel cameras is that they were able to reduce the overall number of cameras needed for the project, particularly in the main lobby and for building perimeter security.

IQinVision (http://www.iqeye.com), market leader in high-performance HD megapixel IP cameras, today announced that the 5-star Opera Hotel in Istanbul has deployed a wide range of IQinVision HD megapixel cameras in anticipation of its grand re-opening in January 2012. Bilge Electronics is the integrator for this project.

The Opera Hotel is one of the historic hotels in Istanbul. After changing hands in 2004, the new owner planned for renovations to take the building back to its original form and grace. Upon re-opening, the hotel will offer 76 amenity-filled rooms, four suites, three meeting rooms, a swimming pool, fitness center, sauna, and a rooftop bar with a magnificent view of where Asia and Europe meet along the banks of the Bosporus Strait.

The Opera Hotel sets a standard for luxury and since it will be hosting many important guests, hotel management wanted the best in video surveillance security. Along with their excellent relationship with Bilge, hotel management was also impressed with the IQeye camera’s image quality and performance.

The 64-camera installation is deployed so that 42 IQeye Alliance-mini dome cameras cover each floor’s corridors, lobbies, and waiting rooms; 12 IQeye Alliance-mx cameras watch over the parking lot; and 10 IQeye Sentinels are located in strategic locations around the building perimeter and cover the entrance and street in front of the hotel.

Another advantage of the IQinVision cameras is that they fit in nicely and unobtrusively with the hotel’s classic design. The cameras record on motion at 15 frames per second. The Opera Hotel’s security goals are clear-cut: capture all important events at an image quality sufficient to recognize persons and objects. An important cost benefit for the hotel in using IQinVision HD megapixel cameras is that they were able to reduce the overall number of cameras needed for the project, particularly in the main lobby and for building perimeter security.
