HD surveillance at the O2

Avigilon monitors high-traffic areas to capture image details around an entertainment complex.
Avigilon has installed the Avigilon HD Surveillance System to monitor traffic at Greenwich Peninsula, a new district in London surrounding the music, sports, and entertainment complex, The O2. The HD surveillance system has also been installed at indigo2, a 2350 capacity live music venue inside The O2.
“With the Avigilon HD Surveillance System installed, we are confident that we can achieve full coverage of the entire area surrounding The O2 and capture the image detail required for better overall public security at this world-class venue,” said Gilbert Yule, facilities management consultant for Greenwich Peninsula. “Using the Avigilon HD Surveillance System, operators can easily manage images to review footage and pinpoint specific details for positive identification.”
Operators at The O2 Operational Control Room manage the system using Avigilon Control Center network video management software (NVMS) with HD Stream Management. Avigilon HD cameras ranging from one to 16 megapixels were installed around the exterior of The O2 to monitor high-traffic areas and capture licence plate and facial details, and at all entrances at indigo2 to identify incoming ticket holders. Several Avigilon Analogue Video Encoders were installed to create a hybrid surveillance system that dramatically improves the performance of PTZ analogue cameras in a very cost effective manner. An Avigilon network video recorder (NVR) stores up to 31 days of continuous surveillance video and additional workstations were set up at the Greenwich Peninsula Business Centre and the nearby Transport for London building.
With a five-year plan to transition the Peninsula’s entire surveillance system over to the Avigilon platform, flexibility and scalability were key selling features for GPRL. In fact, the entire system is expandable and can grow as more entertainment and leisure venues are added throughout the development. The Avigilon HD Surveillance System was designed and installed to achieve maximum image quality with the lowest bandwidth requirements and longest recording times possible. Leveraging Avigilon’s use of lossless compression technology, operators can view live scenes and recorded footage at the same time, zooming into specific events on up to eight split-screens on one monitor to dramatically expedite the investigation process.
“The O2 is an entertainment venue that is setting new international benchmarks, with a 20 000 capacity arena that hosts international music acts and world-class sporting events such as the gymnastics and basketball at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games,” said Dave Tynan, vice president of global sales and marketing at Avigilon. “The Avigilon HD Surveillance System can play a critical role in managing crowd control and deterring potential risk by enabling live monitoring and high quality recording and playback for quick identification and fast resolution.”For more information contact Avigilon, +34 6678 87503, firstname.lastname@example.org, www.avigilon.com
