The Farnborough Air Show attracts a large contingent of commercial aviation specialists, as well as thousands of families who enjoy spectacular flying displays as well as the attractions that the air show has to offer.
Security and safety during the July 2014 event was as always, a priority for the organisers, with an effective CCTV operation being essential. It needed to spot other potential issues, too: vehicle access and crowd movement; anything that may have impacted the comfort of the general public.
In charge of everything CCTV-related, Don Wetherell of Mobile CCTV Ltd is moving with the times supplementing analogue cameras with high-resolution digital imagery. Meeting his client’s requirements for more detailed vision.
One of Don’s biggest concerns of the new technology, was the staff operating the cameras were more familiar with joystick control keyboards rather than a mouse which is the preferred option with IP related digital images.
Enter Building Block Video to the rescue – with the Asgard HD Decoder Keypad.
The Asgard keypad is able to control of all the available IP cameras on the system, switching automatically from one camera to another, streaming high-resolution video to display images on an HDMI Monitor. It is substantially higher resolution means that a larger screen can be used, with crystal clear images that fully support the security and safety needs of any venue or event. That’s not all – the new Asgard HD Keypad means no need for a PC or laptop, simply plug in and go. The installation was rapid and painless meeting his client’s requirements for deployment with in a shortest time possible and with minimum disruption at such a prestigious event.
Don from Mobile CCTV was delighted. He found the new system intuitive, easy to
use and a considerable time-saver. Safety, security and crowd comfort were never at risk.
