Brooklyn, NY, March 22, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cemtrex Inc. (NASDAQ: CETX, CETXP), an advanced security technology and industrial services company, has received a $0.8 million order through Vicon Industries for a new prison being built in the United Kingdom to install a full end-to-end system of Vicon’s surveillance products including hardware and software.
The new Category C prison, with cell space for 1,400 prisoners, has been designed to incorporate the latest smart technologies to better protect prisoners, staff and the public. It will also be the first new prison in the U.K. set to operate as zero-carbon in the future, with an all-electric design, solar panels, heat pumps and energy-efficient lighting systems.
The new system from Vicon will include state-of-the-art video surveillance security capabilities utilizing the Valerus Video Management System (VMS) and award-winning Roughneck cameras and servers. The Roughneck is a powerfully advanced, NDAA-compliant, camera lineup designed for effortless remote configuration, eliminating tedious and frustrating installations. This extensive line of vandal-resistant cameras provides models for every application, ranging from corner-mounted cameras for in-cell use and super-high resolution, hemispheric models that can capture every detail in larger spaces like mess halls and exercise yards. The order is expected to be shipped partially in the current quarter and into the following quarter. Details of the customer were not provided due to confidentiality agreements in place.
“We are delighted to garner another major enterprise, mission critical project with this full system order for Vicon’s surveillance solutions. From penitentiaries in the U.S. to the U.K., our internationally recognized brand Vicon keeps operations safe for prisoners, workers, and visitors,” said Saagar Govil, Chairman and CEO of Cemtrex. “The order also reaffirms our expectation for driving 16% revenue growth to $28 million this year for Vicon. In the U.S and internationally, corrections facilities are increasingly focusing on deploying the latest and greatest technologies and our Valerus system is an example of that. Vicon’s full-featured video management systems are engineered to streamline every aspect of the security operation. We expect to see increasing demand as the corrections industry continues to invest into their operations in newer and more efficient technology.
