FLIR protects Commonwealth Games

April 2018 News, Entertainment and Hospitality (Industry)

FLIR Systems announced it has been selected as the official video security provider of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) in Australia. FLIR will provide surveillance equipment, including security cameras and video management software (VMS), to help national and local law enforcement provide safety and security at the Games from April 4 – 15, 2018.

In preparation for GC2018, FLIR has delivered a suite of visible and thermal security cameras, including fixed and pan-tilt-zoom cameras. In many cases the cameras will be equipped with embedded video analytics, the cameras will detect threats and stream live information to allow rapid response to security events at the Commonwealth Games’ venues. To protect this high-profile international event, FLIR will also provide a mix of thermal imaging cameras that operate day and night, through light fog or smoke, ensuring continual observation and accurate detection capabilities.

“Public safety is our number one priority and we are determined to make sure all athletes and spectators are able to enjoy GC2018,” said GOLDOC chairman, Peter Beattie AC. “The Games are a major sporting event – not a security event – and importantly for fans, we are using a number of products, like those being delivered by FLIR, to provide a safe and secure environment while still allowing for efficient access to venues for patrons, athletes and officials in an unobtrusive manner. We have acquired the largest number of sponsors for any Commonwealth Games and I’m pleased to welcome FLIR to the GC2018 Sponsor Family.”
