Hikvision helps secure African Union Summit

September 2019 News, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Hikvision established a complete intelligent video solution to ensure the security of the thirty-third African Union (AU) Summit held on 7 July in Niamey, the capital of Niger.

The summit was attended by African heads of state and other government leaders, the AU organisation leadership, officials of the AU Commission and auxiliary organisations, representatives of partner organisations, the diplomatic corps, and invited guests.

With the arrival of the summit’s participants, Hikvision provided a customised solution to meet the significant challenges around urban security and traffic management, including front-end cameras, transmission control displays, storage devices, mobile traffic command devices, central platform software, and more.

In order to resolve the traffic congestion issues caused by the many visitors and their vehicles, Hikvision intelligent products were set to alert operators about traffic congestion issues in realtime, allowing them to take immediate action to keep lanes clear and to keep traffic flowing.

Additionally, high-definition cameras were installed at every entrance and exit as well as key areas of the main venue. With clear, real-time imaging, security personnel could discern situations on the spot and respond immediately. It is worth mentioning that Hikvision also provided Eagle Series industrial-grade drones to keep on standby, ready to provide high-altitude perspectives for the summit security if needed.
