The Cencon ATM Cash Vault Security System from Kaba Mas is designed to combat insider theft from ATMs through the combined use of lock hardware, systems software and Smart Keys™. Cencon offers total access control and accountability with its One Time Combination™ feature.

The One Time Combination is dispatched from a central location and cannot be reused at a later date, thus eliminating temptation.

Unique software allows you to control and monitor tens, hundreds, even thousands of locks located anywhere in the world – from one central location.

Cencon is a revolutionary and cost-effective solution to today’s most serious security challenges.

Interactivity offers engagement at a higher level. It puts people in control when searching for information, and allows them to discover items of interest on their own terms. This makes it a powerful means of communication.

So too is a very large screen. It can present images with high impact to command serious attention and deliver a far more immersive experience.

Ci have recently installed Australia’s first giant interactive LED wall at QUT and there is nothing else to match it in Australia. Operable via gesture or touch it provides independent zones within its giant display so that multiple users can interact with the wall simultaneously.

The technology involved was first developed for Sega world in Japan and is on the cutting edge of large-scale interactivity. Appropriate uses are corporate showcases, visitor centres, student centres, shopping plazas, hospitality and entertainment venues, museums, retailers and more.

Enquiries are welcome.




The range of technology Ci can integrate for retailers is truly amazing. Large format display is only the beginning. It’s what becomes possible when you can combine data, touch and display that things really get interesting. Or when you combine cameras and display in ways that engage customers in an immersive experience.

Ci can provide the means to create some memorable shopping experiences that will demonstrably generate store traffic. Each would be tailored specifically to the retailer concerned and the customers they serve.

Wayfinding is another technology that Ci can integrate for retail along with a range of other customer interactions. Ci also offers the means to create interactive shop window LED displays that operate through glass. So if your client is a retailer, invite Ci to the table early.

In 2010, MiTek SAPPHIRE Structure application was launched, giving component manufacturers unprecedented ability to create 3D digital models of commercial and residential structures-design solutions with even more precision and visibility than ever before.

Now MiTek offers builders, architects and engineers SAPPHIRE Viewer: the technology to efficiently collaborate with your component manufacturing experts and resolve the structural framework early in the design process through efficient collaboration centred around the 3D model.

By collaborating electronically with a MiTek component manufacturer to resolve structural frameworks and component design during the home design and estimating process, cost estimates are more accurate, overall design time is reduced, and many of the unexpected costs of change orders can be a thing of the past.

One of the only products of its kind, PipeCad is a software module entirely dedicated to the design of mechanical heating and cooling boiler rooms.

By combining a realistic graphical view of the equipment and room interiors with advanced calculation technology, the software allows the designer to thoroughly investigate and address the needs of each project.

Each component of the ensuing design can be fully specified and sized, with adaptors and connectors automatically calculated and inserted according to pipe sizes.

Offering full integration with AutoCAD and other programs in the Mc4Suite, PipeCad is an invaluable means for designing plants and other industrial projects with speed, ease, and accuracy.

FireCad is Mc4Software’s innovative program for the design and sizing of fire protection systems. Encapsulating roof or in-rack systems for industrial and warehouse protection, and internal and external options for other structures, the program’s range of applications is broad.

Featuring a clear, intuitive interface, the FireCad software allows for a flexible, user-defined generation of pipe networks. Architects and engineers can use the software as a tool for the design, calculation, and graphic representation of complex heating, cooling, and plumbing systems of any configuration. Integration with other programs in the mc4Suite allows the specification of hazard levels, load calculations, and placement of sprinkler and hose systems.

Users are able to quickly and accurately generate an optimum design for fire safety and risk mitigation.

Sophisticated graphics collate and communicate data in a coherent and legible manner, with FireCad software fully compatible with files produced in AutoCAD.

For projects involving hydraulic and thermal calculations, HvacCad from Mc4Software is the ideal computer program. The most complete and high performing software of its kind, HvacCad is fully AutoCAD compatible, and able to analyse and generate values from graphic inputs.

HvacCad is intended to streamline the heating and cooling design process. Its main capabilities include heating and cooling requirements, the sizing of heating and refrigeration components, and facilitation of the complete design of duct and radiant heating and cooling systems. The program is suitable for the calculation and design of all types of pipe net systems, encompassing gas systems, plumbing, and wall and subfloor radiant heating systems.

The HvacCad software is available in either Standard or Pro versions, depending on the needs and size of the project in question. Both versions are graphical input compatible and contain a series of self contained software modules for specific areas of design.

Producing presentation images of architectural, object, and automobile design projects, Artlantis Render is a 3D rendering platform for the creation of static images. Equipped with numerous viewpoint, lighting, and background functionalities, and offering user customisation of shadows and lenses, the software ensures that all projects are represented in photorealistic detail.

A clear and intuitive user interface is combined with CAD modelling software (including SketchUp and ArchiCAD) to generate exceptionally resolved rendered scenes and models. The unique ‘Postcards’ feature allows users to archive material settings and views at any stage of the project, with the capability for later retrieval thereof.

In conjunction with extensive view options, a broad catalogue of pre-made 3D models in the program’s Media Catalog makes it simple to enhance 3D scenes and interiors. Texture mapping, people, and landscaping are all fully integrated into the software, alongside an HDRI background capability.

Available for both Mac and PC operating systems, Artlantis Render can be used in tandem with Artlantis Studio to produce panoramic images and project animations. 

For the creation of animations and virtual panoramas, Artlantis Studio is the ideal software solution. Developed in partnership with AXYZ Design, Artlantis Studio animates objects, characters, and scenes.

The powerful software maintains an intuitive, user friendly interface, with 3D people and objects placed using a simple ‘drag’ and drop, and fully customisable in terms of scale, materiality, and colour.

Artlantis Studio’s camera simulation functionality allows navigation of a rendered scene, giving users and clients a feel of the interior atmosphere and character of a space. The programs ‘timeline’ window facilitates precision editing, and a broad range of lighting and lens features ensures high resolution graphics on each project.

In conjunction with iVisit 3D, Artlantis Studio allows for the creation of panoramic views of a project, with these images then exportable to Flash and other presentation platforms. Full 360º navigation means that project images can be viewed smoothly and seamlessly both on desktop computers and mobile devices on which the free iVisit 3D app is installed. 

The latest in Abvent’s range of 3D rendering software, Artlantis 5 is the French company’s most comprehensive and user friendly program to date. Suitable for architects, designers, and students alike, the software generates high quality photorealistic renders for presentations and competitions.
