It is one of the season’s most admired megayachts, and not just for its profile, but for the level of the technologies on board. Welcome the 69m full-custom Benetti M/Y Spectre, winner of the 2019 World Superyacht Awards category “Displacement yachts between 500 and 1,999 tonnes”,in which Videoworks has built a highly technological installation that includes audio-video, network, telephony, home automation and CCTV systems, confirming in this way its leading role in AV and IT integrations in the yachting world.
NETWORK AND CYBERSECURITY
Onboard network security (firewall, bandwidth manager, connection manager...) is guaranteed by the Kerio NG500 system, which allows to surf securely while on board and to manage bandwidth as needed, e.g. if the Owner needs to work aboard, the system allows to limit bandwidth access and use. To guarantee the greatest security possible, the system uses Cisco products from the Catalyst and Aironet professional lines.
The telephone switchboard is managed through a Cisco Router and the Cisco Unified Communication Manager software. The system includes 17 cordless telephones + 17 landlines, buzzer, fax line and light signals for calls from the Engine Room.
The closed circuit television system manages 10 cameras, two PTZ cameras (one interior and one exterior), a number of external fixed cameras and a 360° fisheye camera, two observation and management stations (one in the wheelhouse and one in the crew mess), through a dedicated Panasonic software and PC touch panel. The Network Disk Recorder allows the captain to make recordings for security, control and surveillance purposes. The CCTV system is integrated in the entertainment section through the Itworks “ Myinfos” app.
