Surveillance technology from IDIS was selected for upgrade projects to the systems for two of the stadia used for the recent World Cup in Russia. Both the 45,000 capacity Rostov Arena and the 35,000 capacity Kaliningrad Stadium were installed with an IDIS Total Solution.
A total of 3000 IP cameras were installed. This included full HD and H.265 models as well as PTZ cameras with Smart UX Controls v2.0, a range of full HD, true wide dynamic range (WDR), IR bullet cameras and full HD box cameras. All external cameras were equipped to withstand Russia’s harsh weather conditions.
Combined command and control was via a centralised surveillance monitoring centre. A key portion of this was an IDIS ultra-thin bezel 55-inch video wall which allowed security staff to access 60 days of archived footage from 50 remote IDIS DR-8364 NVRs implemented at situational centres. IDIS technology deployed at these response centres enabled security staff to rapidly detect and respond to any breach of health and safety, suspicious behaviour or terrorist threat.
In addition, IDIS Critical Failover was installed to prevent loss of vital recorded data during a range of fault conditions. The system automatically steps in to ensure continued recording in the event of network instability, network failure, storage failure, recorder hardware failure and power supply failure, in each case ensuring that no data is lost.
“The IDIS surveillance system, installed inside and around the stadium gave security controllers a complete overview of the site and perimeter fences,” said Joon Jun, President of the Global Business Division of IDIS. “Our advanced technology helped to ensure safety and security by preventing unauthorised intrusion.
“We are proud that our brand credibility and product stability has been recognised on the global stage at an event which was the focus of world attention,” he continued. “To safeguard thousands of visitors at these key venues, it was essential to use the most reliable technology including high-resolution surveillance cameras with waterproof and dustproof functions and a solution that prevented data loss in the event of network instability.”
