“We ’re pleased and proud that the Malmö Arena chose Axis cameras for coverage of this prestigious, internationally acclaimed event, ” said Ray Mauritsson, CEO of Axis Communications. “It ’s extremely important that guests, artists, and organizers are safe and secure during the contests. ”
The ESC is expected to attract more than 100 million TV viewers and up to 10,000 visitors to the arena, on 10 separate occasions.
ESC organisers set very high image-quality and safety standards for the installation. The network-based surveillance cameras enable HDTV picture quality, remote access with easy retrievability of material via the internet and high light sensitivity for reproducing color images in tricky lighting conditions.
“During this project, we ’ve worked very closely with Axis so that together, we get a solution aligned with international surveillance requirements during the contests, ” said Peter Narbe, head of security for ESC 2013. “I ’m delighted with the partnership and the results that my colleagues and I have with Axis. ”
The ESC is the world’s largest entertainment program; it will be telecast from Malmo on 14, 16, and 18 May.
