Keeping Formula One covered

April 2011 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Entertainment and Hospitality (Industry)

Racing to effective surveillance.

The Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi, UAE is owned by the Executive Affairs Authority of the government of Abu Dhabi and operated by Abu Dhabi Motorsports Management.

Approximately 50 000 spectators can view the action on the circuit from the comfort of permanent, covered grandstands and VIP facilities.

The racetrack needed to improve security levels for an upcoming Formula One race, with the new security system able to prevent any critical events occurring.

The main complex at Yas Marina Circuit had an existing security system that needed upgrading to IP surveillance and integration with an access control system. Fortunately, the main complex had a good Internet infrastructure setup, so together with the Power over Ethernet (PoE) IP cameras there was a huge reduction in the overall infrastructure cost.

A total of 50 ACD-2100 video encoder units were used in the upgrade and the track’s existing analogue cameras were converted to IP cameras with an extra 380 ACM-3511 megapixel dome cameras installed in the main building. These cameras provide good low-light performance and video quality and are able to monitor all locations and in corners.

The main reason for choosing ACTi is because the megapixel picture quality is superior. In addition, the ACTi open platform design base helps third-party software easily integrate with the ACTi camera solution.
