Within a NorVenue system, each entry point (and exit point, if necessary) is individually monitored by one of four counters within an NCT200 counting controller. Each counter can receive count inputs from voltage free contacts in a turnstile or similar entry control system. The NCT200 stores the count values locally and makes them available to the NorVenue software over a network connection.
NorVenue maintains a database of counter identities, count values, alarm thresholds and other user settings. It processes the count information using virtual counters to calculate and store values such as the throughput of each bank of turnstiles, the occupancy levels of individual sections and the overall venue occupancy level. These values can be used to display important summary information on screen and to drive Variable Message Signs that are strategically placed around the venue to ensure that officials and visitors are aware of the current situation.
In addition, the stadium administrator, safety officer and other key officials have access to a wealth of useful information including real-time occupancy data, early indications of potential problems and a continuous count log to facilitate the statical analysis of visitor and spectator arrival patterns, attendance, section utilisation, etc.
