Stadium Solutions from Bosch Security Systems
Full Circle with Bosch Solutions
All entertainment facilities pose security challenges, but sports stadiums definitely top the list. Many modern sports stadiums are multipurpose venues that also host concerts and other cultural events. These facilities, in which thousands of people congregate on a regular basis, have to meet especially demanding security, safety, communication and building automation criteria. They therefore face daunting security issues which lead to the following challenges:
- Preventing and/or responding to terrorism, rioting and vandalism
- Dealing with fire and explosions
- Protecting athletes and staff
- Managing a wide variety of different access authorizations
- Separating crowds
Solutions from Bosch Security Systems help entertainment facilities to manage these security, safety and communication challenges.
The Video Management System from Bosch enables complete management and recording of all video surveillance elements. High-resolution CCTV cameras can continuously monitor groups approaching and entering the stadium, as well as bleachers to identify offenders. Special directional microphones can be used to record events, as well as PTZ cameras identify movement in all weather conditions, thus also helping to prevent operations from being disturbed by any criminal activity.
Additionally, Bosch Advanced Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA) enables self-developed early detection of suspicious behavior and identification of abandoned luggage. Tracking cameras can help verify or disprove alarms, alerting the security operator as appropriate. A “forensic search” function permits fast retrieval of relevant video sequences.
An IP-based access control system from Bosch is ideal for preventing unauthorized individuals from entering restricted areas such as equipment and locker rooms. It supports a large range of readers as well as biometric solutions to meet strict security requirements. Together with video surveillance, this makes it possible to capture and record all access events. Violations automatically trigger an alarm so immediate action can be taken to deal with the situation.
Entertainment facilities face the risk of valuables, equipment, or personal items being stolen from restricted areas such as backstage area, storage rooms.
Bosch can help to handle these risks as well. This is being done by intrusion systems that monitor all doors, vehicle entrances, and perimeters for unauthorized and suspicious persons, as well as stolen vehicles. If a detector picks up a possible threat, a security operator is alerted that can use the Bosch Video Management System with high-resolution CCTV cameras and Intelligent Video Analysis to verify the alarm, activate an appropriate action plan and support subsequent forensic searches.
Effective communication and professional sound are essential not only for dealing with security and safety issues, but also creating a good atmosphere and for holding other types of events such as concerts.
Modular public address and emergency sound systems from Bosch are ideal for live announcements and background music– always with maximum reliability and speech intelligibility.
More and more stadiums are now multipurpose venues that also host concerts and other events. Rounding out the Bosch portfolio, the Electro-Voice and Dynacord brands build upon over 140 years of combined experience in innovating professional audio solutions. They offer a full range of highly specialized equipment including microphones, amplifiers, signal processors and loudspeakers that are the industry standards for professional sound systems in sports arenas.
In order to protect lives and property at entertainment facilities, it is vital to quickly detect, locate, verify, and contain fires. Entertainment facilities pose special challenges: crowds, high ceilings, large open areas, and long distances to emergency escape routes.
Bosch modular fire panels and detectors are ideal for this and more. They apply multiple intelligent criteria to ensure early, reliable detection – with high immunity to false alarms – and fast responses. A large number of detectors can be connected in loops of up to 3000 m and networked to cover multiple buildings. The panels automatically notify the fire brigade, in addition to interfacing with sprinkler, ventilation, and public address systems as well as the Bosch Building Integration System (BIS) to fight fire events of all kinds and coordinate the evacuation of large groups of people.
With all of the security, safety, communication and building automation systems that can be installed in an entertainment facility, it is a challenge to efficiently manage and coordinate them all.
The Building Integration System (BIS) from Bosch provides a single Web-based cockpit for monitoring all security, safety and building management systems. This includes alarm management, fast alarm pinpointing via location maps, and follow-up procedures. It also seamless integrates fire and intrusion alarms, as well as evacuation, access control, CCTV and building automation systems.
Use of the BIS lets a single operator monitor and control all security systems, in addition to enabling faster responses to emergencies and greater overall effectiveness.
