Cathexis Technologies has played an important security role in Pope Francis’ visit to Ireland. Cathexis worked alongside its Dublin-based, Gold Channel Partner, Mongey Communications, and the Irish Garda, to facilitate the critical role of surveillance management.
With an official itinerary that was jam-packed with meetings, visits and official engagements, all within a two-day schedule, His Holiness, had a whirlwind visit through Dublin, which included the World Meeting of Families and Festival of Families at Croke Park on Saturday 25 August.
Cathexis worked in partnership with Mongey Communications to provide a fully-integrated 24/7 surveillance management solution that would effectively manage the entire visit. The CathexisVision IP Video Management Software suite provided an around the clock CCTV surveillance solution, which supported three linked control rooms to ensure an immediate response to any situation of potential security threats.
“We are exceptionally proud to have played a role in the Pope’s World Meeting of Families visit,” said Mark Ross, managing director of Cathexis Europe. “Cathexis is committed to providing the most efficient and effective, tailored video management software solutions, to provide maximum return on surveillance investment,” he added.
The Cathexis Europe Technical team worked alongside Mongey throughout the design, build up and operations over the weekend to ensure that CathexisVision was providing optimal performance, and to provide additional cameras and surveillance management to the police service of the Republic of Ireland (Garda).
“We are delighted that we had the opportunity to play a part in the Pope’s historic visit to Ireland at the weekend, and are exceptionally honoured for the ongoing international recognition,” concluded Ross.
