Excelsa - A Minority Owned MSGI Business - Provides Security for the Funeral of Pope John Paul II
ROME and NEW YORK, April 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Excelsa SpA, a minority-owned business of MSGI Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: MSGI), has announced that they are providing security for the Pope's funeral in Rome. The exceptional scale of visitor numbers in Rome during the recent tribute to the late Pope John Paul II has required exceptional organizational measures. Excelsa technology is contributing technological flexibility and speed to the deployment of the public security shield over the eternal city. Since the spring of 2003, the City Police of Rome has been using the Excelsa Real Time Security (eRTS) video surveillance platform to centralize and re-distribute live images from its CCTV camera network to various control rooms throughout the city. The high-capacity and high-flexibility of eRTS Video and Alert over IP features allow the Police in Rome to adapt field resources to changing field requirements, providing access to cameras and alerts where needed, as needed. The enormous number of visitors, an estimated 4 million added to the local population of 3 million has put great pressure on the public authorities to come up with constantly adapted crowd control and also support responses. Additional police forces have been called into Rome, and the Civil Protection agency and volunteers have been mobilized. The same deployment of resources, as in catastrophic events has taken place, providing emergency water, food, shelter and first-aid to the masses congregating in Rome. Thanks to the flexibility of eRTS, the City Police in Rome have also extended secured camera access to the Civil Protection agency command center, providing them with real-time monitoring of crowd movements and shortening the time-to-action of their field personnel. The IP architecture of eRTS allows secured remote access as needed, when needed, where needed, including mobile. When this global event concludes, the City Police in Rome will simply restore the normal distribution of secured video surveillance access. Excelsa's 24x7 support services are also available for special requests.
