Theme and Leisure Parks
Grand View Research, Inc., estimate that the global amusement parks market is expected to reach USD 70.83 billion by 2025
Their findings suggest the key drivers of this growth include the introduction of hotels and resorts within parks and increasing spending capacity of consumers as they look for entertainment options for the entire family. The growth of multiple theme-based attractions, live entertainment shows, and extraordinary rides for people of all age groups and abilities.
The requirement to provide a safe and secure environment for both staff and visitors, free from the threat of anti-social behaviour, petty crime, personal assault and risk of injury is of course paramount.
However, reducing these risks while managing the efficient flow of visitors, staff and supplies creates unique challenges.
Core to the management of risk, containment of incidents, implementation of emergency plans and providing an excellent customer experience lays in the ability to report threats, situations and status quickly and efficiently instantly, but most especially in the event of a natural or man-made catastrophe where access for emergency services and the safe and fast evacuation of large numbers of people through multiple access points will need to be managed.
The most powerful means to achieving operational efficiency lays in the ability for management and cross functional teams to communicate with each other reliably and instantly, anywhere on site, which is why Kenwood two-way radios feature so prominently in many theme park operations including Puy du Fou, France and Georgia Aquarium, North America.
Typical uses of two-way radio communications in and around a theme park include:
- Protection of staff and visitors
- Protection of property
Cost-effective migration from analogue to digital
The beauty of a Kenwood digital two-way radio solution is that the investment in new equipment when upgrading from analogue can be phased over time as all Kenwood digital radio devices feature automatic analogue/digital Mixed Mode operation (which allows them to communicate automatically with any existing analogue radios whatever the make) providing a predictable and cost effective path to full digital implementation.
Kenwood NEXEDGE NXDN and NEXEDGE DMR offer highly flexible and infinitely scalable digital trunked systems for digital conventional, IP and trunked operation that can accommodate multiple user groups and sites. In addition, NEXEDGE DMR can be specified with simulcast and multi-frequency capabilities.
Linked to appropriate integrated application software, for example Kenwood’s KAS-20 AVL and Dispatch suite, users can greatly improve operational safety and security either at a single site or across multiple site and include a host of features including call recording, personnel and vehicle tracking.
Simulcast and Trunked capabilities
Kenwood DMR Tier 2 digital conventional and Tier 3 trunked systems with optional simulcast architecture can provide the capacity for more users while using fewer frequencies then was possible previously.
Rugged, Durable and Dependable
NEXEDGE® Digital Two-way Radios with Lone Worker features are available in both hand-portable walkie talkies and mobile in-vehicle units which all conform to MIL-STD-810 C/D/E/F/G for ruggedness and durability and are IP54/55/67/68 Water & Dust Intrusion rated, making them ideal for operation in harsh, outdoor environments.
To maximise efficiency and ensure 24/7 availability of clear, instant communication to first responder services, Kenwood hand-portable radios are equipped with batteries designed to last an entire shift without recharging in normal use. Spare batteries and chargers are available to enable 24-hour operation along with batteries with additional capacity for heavy duty cycles.
