‘The Cube’ by Electrolux monitored by PanoCam360 Surveillance Solution

Honeywell installs PanoCam360 integrated with Wavestore software in Michelin Star Restaurant on top of the Royal Festival Hall at Southbank Centre

AMG-Panogenics, the British manufacturer of sophisticated 5 Megapixel cameras, announces that its PanoCam360, integrated with Wavestore’s NVR with Video Management Software, has been selected by Southbank Centre for ‘The Cube’ by Electrolux. The Cube offers a unique dining experience featuring some of the most exciting Michelin star chefs in the UK. The surveillance solution has been installed by Honeywell Building Solutions. 

Hilton Wells is Head of Technical Services at Southbank Centre, which hosts The Cube atop the Royal Festival Hall until September 30th. He comments, “We have chosen the PanoCam360 camera not only for its discreet stylish looks but also for its 360 degree simultaneous recording capability.” 

Jacquie Rees, Projects and Sales Executive at Honeywell, says, “We see a big potential in the 5 Megapixel PanoCam360. The Cube is a prime example of an application where using traditional camera technology would require multiple cameras in order to cover the venue. The flexibility provided by the 360° functionality means that we can now cover the entire venue with a single AMG-Panogenics camera and this makes it a very cost effective solution. An added advantage is that the camera can be utilised for the Southbank Centre after The Cube has ended. The camera is particularly useful for areas within The Southbank Centre that require increased security as the 360 camera can view the front and back of individuals entering and exiting the building.” 

David Myers, CTO of AMG-Panogenics, comments, “AMG-Panogenics specialises in intelligent imaging solutions and develops cutting-edge hardware and software technologies for the global security industry. PanoCam360 streams 12.5 frames per second and the on-board de-warping reduces the processing requirement back in the control room. Offering up to 14 de-warped video streams/independent camera views simultaneously alongside the full-resolution fish-eye view makes PanoCam360 the most powerful and versatile 360 degree camera range available. It provides complete situational awareness from a single camera. To the best of our knowledge, there is no other 360 degree camera available in the market offering such a high number of simultaneous streams from the camera combined with a 12.5fps frame rate. Having the camera fully installed at such a prestigious venue is testament to the cameras versatility.”

The Cube by Electrolux is an initiative developed by Electrolux, a global leader in domestic and professional appliances and a company chosen by almost 50% of Europe’s Michelin star chefs to supply equipment to their kitchens. Following successful visits to Brussels and Milan, The Cube by Electrolux is positioned on top of the Royal Festival Hall from June to September 2012 offering incredible views of the capital and truly unforgettable food to match. The Cube by Electrolux seats just 18 guests around one table allowing them to watch their meal being prepared in an open plan kitchen, which is equipped with new state-of-the-art Electrolux domestic appliances as well as professional equipment. As part of the experience, each chef will also offer their hints and tips on how to create restaurant quality food when entertaining at home.

Visits to The Cube by Electrolux are priced at £175 per person for lunch and £215 for dinner Monday to Sunday. To book a table and find out more visit www.electrolux.co.uk/Cube/London.
