Panasonic takes to the pitch

April 2003 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

The ICC Cricket World Cup 2003 ('CWC 2003') that ended last month attracted capacity crowds at each of the 54 limited-overs games. Highlighting the enormity of the crowd control required and the potential hazards surrounding the event from an incident perspective, these attendance figures underscore the importance of world-class security and crowd surveillance systems.

With this in mind, the CWC 2003 Organising Committee took unprecedented precautions to ensure a safe and secure environment for spectators and players alike, including the installation of Panasonic surveillance systems at the 15 stadia (12 in South Africa, two in Zimbabwe, one in Kenya).

The installation and commissioning of the equipment was awarded to AV Electronics and was completed by the end of November 2002. The product list included:

* 53 Panasonic WV-CW860 outdoor dome cameras.

* 25 Panasonic WV-CP240 high resolution full colour cameras.

* 25 Panasonic WV-LZA61/2 variable focal auto iris lenses.

* Six Panasonic WJ-SX150 16-input matrix systems.

* Six Panasonic WJ-HD500 16-input digital recorders.

* Six Panasonic WV-CU50 system controllers.

* Nine Panasonic WJ-FS416 16-input full colour digital video duplex multiplexers.

* 18 Panasonic AG-TL350 24-hour time video cassette recorders.

* 18 Panasonic WV-CK1420 14-inch full colour monitors.

* 12 Panasonic WV-CU360 system controllers for the PS-data devices.

"We are confident that the high quality for which our products are renowned, stood the installation in good stead," said Mags Anthony, director, Panasonic CCVE Systems - a division of NPC (Electronics).
