Day/Night dome cameras from Vicon chosen for Beijing Olympics.

Vicon Industries : 11 March, 2008  (Application Story)
Pan and tilt mechanisms and VFT dome cameras to provide surveillance protection at the 90000 seat stadium in Beijing for the 2008 Olympic Games.
Day/Night dome cameras from Vicon chosen for Beijing Olympics.
The opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Summer Olympics, as well as some of the athletic events, will be held at the newly constructed Beijing National Stadium. When completed the stadium will be able to seat over 90,000 spectators.

As athletes and spectators converge on Beijing this summer, Olympic committees and government officials are under great pressure to provide a safe and secure environment for visitors both before and during the event. A big event such as this can be a focus for terrorist attacks and it is crucial that high-tech video surveillance is used to its full. Realizing the importance of spectator safety within the venue, decision-makers are depending on Vicon's cameras to monitor the stadium.

Vicon's Surveyor VFT day/night dome cameras were chosen because of their excellent record for performance and reliability and will be installed around the stadium along with fixed cameras on Vicon's Vistar pan & tilt drives.

Commenting on being awarded the prestigious contract, Chris Wall, Vicon's Managing Director said: "We are delighted that our cameras have been entrusted to provide the surveillance at such an important venue and that Vicon will have a role in making the 2008 Olympics safe for everyone that attends or participates in events at the Beijing National Stadium."
