P&O Global Technologies, Inc. Offers Cutting-Edge HEVC Security Camera Systems that Integrate with Echo or Google Home, Allowing Easy Viewing of Entryways


Fort Lauderdale, Fla. — (Dec. 19, 2017) — P&O Global Technologies, Inc., an international leader in surveillance camera systems and other sophisticated technology, is unveiling its cutting-edge high efficiency video coding (HEVC) security camera systems, that integrate home or business cameras with Echo, Google Home and more. The systems allow viewing of who is in the entryway simply by asking “OK, Google, show me the entryway.”

“HEVC is a technology that will become mainstream in the coming year,” said Maurizio Pejoves, Director, P&O Global Technologies. “It promises a 50 percent storage reduction, better visual quality, an improved de-blocking filter, and sample adaptive offset. At P&O, we are committed to not only educating our clients about our latest emerging technologies but providing an affordable product to help protect their homes and businesses.”

According to a recent study by Intel Corporation, 71% of consumers are expecting to see at least one smart-home device in every home by 2025. Smart technology incorporates capabilities that can improve lives with practical and time-saving features.

The installation of the security camera system should be done by a professional to ensure it is completed properly. P&O’s installations have a 1-year warranty and customers are trained regarding the proper use of the equipment and retrieval of recorded data. P&O provides customer service all year round.

The outdoor cameras, which are aesthetically pleasing and blend with the environment, can endure inclement weather, especially important in Florida.

For integration with Echo or Google Home, the security system camera installed must be compatible and a Smart TV is needed. All components should be on the same network.

Installation can take from a few hours to several days, depending on how many cameras will be installed and the system to be configured. Prices start at $125.

The Hideaway Speakeasy Bar, Offering a Glimpse Into Historic Downtown Fort Lauderdale, to Open in the Notable Bryan Building on Las Olas Boulevard in December 2017


Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (Dec. 7, 2017) Located in Fort Lauderdale’s classic Bryan Building, listed in the National Historic Registry, The Hideaway speakeasy bar will be unveiled in December 2017. Offering a glimpse into historic downtown Fort Lauderdale, The Hideaway serves artisanal cocktails, approximately 30 varieties of craft beers, a large whiskey selection, and an eclectic rotating counter-style menu in an industrial chic setting, with exceptional service.

Acclaimed Designer Kurt VanNostrand, owner of 5&Dime Design, saved the historic designs from the original space in the Bryan Building, even uncovering original columns that were constructed of Dade County Pine. Offering a unique walk back in time, The Hideaway features an authentic lounge, refurbished and reclaimed décor, stamped tin ceilings, and custom period furniture. VanNostrand, who specializes in unique and out-of-the-box designs and hospitality concepts, worked in the hospitality industry himself for over 25 years.

Built in approximately 1913, the two-story Bryan Building was constructed for Thomas Bryan, a member of one of Fort Lauderdale’s most notable pioneer families. One of the first hotels in Fort Lauderdale’s original downtown district, it was one of the initial commercial buildings constructed after the 1912 fire that destroyed much of the original Fort Lauderdale.

“The Hideaway is unlike any other bar in Fort Lauderdale; it is the first in the city that is a speakeasy, New York-type bar with a history,” said Michael Tuck, owner of The Hideaway, and longtime nightclub and bar owner. “It pays homage to the exciting, multi-faceted history of Fort Lauderdale, while being a part of Fort Lauderdale’s continuing revitalization.”

Tuck has owned and operated successful establishments including Automatic Slims, a high-energy rock ‘n’ rock bar in Miami Beach; and Play and Stereo, two of the first VIP EDM (electronic dance music) clubs in Fort Lauderdale.

Mixologist and Miami native Carla Rivera brings over 15 years of experience to The Hideaway as the developer of its drink menu. An award-winning mixologist, Rivera now serves as a South Florida mixologist for Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits, where she specializes in on-premise cocktail development. Most recently, she served as head bartender of Fontainebleau Miami Beach’s renowned modern Chinese restaurant, Hakkasan.

The Hideaway’s cocktails use fresh fruits and artisan crafted syrups, such as blueberry basil and honey pineapple. These unique concoctions were created by up-and-coming chef, Sergio Velazquez.

The drink menu entices with craft cocktails, about 30 types of craft beers, and a massive whiskey selection. It dazzles with unique concoctions, dedicated to the founding families of Fort Lauderdale. Craft cocktails range from $11 – $15. A few examples are:

  • The Hideaway: Bulleit Bourbon, strawberry & blueberry basil syrup, lemon juice
  • The Shepherd: Grey Goose, St. Germain, blueberry basil syrup, lemon juice
  • The McCrory: Knob Creek 100, Angostura bitters, filthy cherry, orange twist
  • The Sterling: Ketel One, honey, ginger, lime, basil, ginger beer
  • The Bryan: Bacardi Coconut, pineapple, mint, lime, Coco Lopez, Angostura bitters
  • The Victoria: Nolet’s, watermelon, fresh mint and lemon juice

Distinctive, delectable fare will be served at the bar starting in January 2018.

It is located at 21 W. Las Olas Blvd. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301.

Operating hours are Tuesday–Saturday, 5 p.m.–4 a.m. The Hideaway will feature nightly DJs.

The Hideaway is also a great location for private events and large group reservations. For more information, call 954-945-5545.
