Bold Gemini leads the way for central monitoring

Press Release: April 20, 2010

In response to the growing number of integrated security software users and Bolds philosophy of continual improvement, the latest version of Gemini will be launched at IFSEC 2010. Ease of use remains the principal design objective and operational benefit, but a new range of features and support for third party security products ensure that control rooms can now be run with maximum efficiency and minimum cost.

The multi-protocol, Gemini MultiView CCTV management solution will be on the stand, easily and effectively managing several different manufacturers security products within a single user interface and database. Several useful new features have been added. For example, when an alarm event is received, a whole site view, as well as pre-alarm view can be generated, for comprehensive remote management. On screen point and click PTZ controls add to the operators ease of use. So, not only is it possible to handle many different CCTV systems within one system, but their individual functionalities are significantly enhanced when handled together within Gemini.

To maximise the systems usability, an unlimited number of different security systems can be associated with each site, such as multi-protocol intruder and fire alarms, together with CCTV, access control and lone worker protection devices. To add to these, Bold will be presenting the new Gemini geographical information module at IFSEC. The module is fully integrated and will support geographical location fixes for alarm events as well as people and asset tracking. For the first time, the control room operator will be able to handle alarms, view CCTV and interactive site plans, manage access control and mobile services all at one integrated workstation with one fluent user interface.

Additional third party interfaces include Europlex 3GS have been added to the already popular Galaxy IP and BoldNet IP alarm signalling solutions.

Bolds powerful new version of Gemini not only supports BS:5979 Cat II compliant alarm and video monitoring centres, but provides unique functionality for site management and interaction. Comprehensive reporting and scheduling delivers the right information at the right time and the secure web module enables customers to manage and administer their own sites.

Designed and developed using all Microsoft technologies, such as the .Net platform and SQL database schema, Gemini has been created with integration a designed in feature. Bolds software development process, accredited to ISO9001, requires that integration with any third party product is completed and tested in accordance with the manufacturers recommendations for central monitoring use and does not rely on SMS or email notification.

This is the 10th year that Bold have exhibited at IFSEC. Managing Director, Brian Kelly, said, The exhibition provides an excellent opportunity to meet with new and established clients from around the world, and to show the quality and functionality of our market leading Gemini security management software. In addition to the award winning Gemini software, Bold will also be presenting some of its innovative alarm communications products. We look forward to seeing you at our Stand D30 in Hall 4.
