Cricket Ground monitors Crowds On DVR System

Samsung Techwin : 27 June, 2012  (Application Story)
The Oval cricket ground ensures compliance with local authority regulation with crowd activity monitoring using DVR equipment from Samsung as part of its surveillance system
Cricket Ground monitors Crowds On DVR System
One of the UK’s most famous international sporting venues has put its trust in Samsung DVRs to record video of crowd activity during match days.

The Kia Oval in South London regularly hosts international cricket matches, as well as being the home of Surrey County Cricket Club. It is understandably determined to maintain its reputation for being a safe and secure environment for its visitors and staff.

“It is essential we have a reliable and robust CCTV system operating at the Kia Oval in order to ensure that we comply with the rules and regulations specified by the Local Authority and that a match day licence can be issued,” said James Wagg of OCS Group UK Ltd, who are contracted to provide 24/7 security at the cricket ground. “The video surveillance system is at the heart of our security operation. It is an invaluable tool which allows our control room operators and the police, who are present on match days, to proactively use live or recorded images to identify potential problems and deal with them quickly and efficiently.”

Four Samsung SRD-1670DC
DVR’s have been installed to collectively record the video captured by 54 cameras, a mixture of PTZ and fixed dome cameras which are located in and around the cricket ground. “The Kia Oval has never hesitated to invest in the latest technology when necessary and in this respect, the recently installed Samsung DVRs replaced recorders which had become outdated,” said James Wagg who as Facilities Manager oversees the in-house maintenance and outsourced cleaning services which are also provided by OCS Group UK Ltd.

Two of the SRD-1670DCs are installed in the cricket ground’s control room and the other two in the Hobbs Gate security office. Each can simultaneously record real time 4CIF images across from up to 16 of the cameras. They utilise Virtual Progressive Scan (VPS) technology which eliminates blurred edges on moving objects, and with an HDMI output, offer the option to upscale images to 1080P. An intuitive graphical on-screen display makes it easy for operators to set up each channel to record at different frames rates or resolutions.

“Following the introduction of the Samsung
DVRs, our control room operators are confident that we now have a highly effective video surveillance system which we and the police can use to its full potential,” said James Wagg. “Outside of match days it continues to play a major role in helping security personnel deter and detect anyone tempted to carry out any criminal activity at the cricket ground.”
