“IF THINGS GET A BIT TOO WILD, SECURITY CAMERAS CAN SPOT THE ACTION. MIRASYS HAS BEEN A GREAT HELP IN IMPROVING SAFETY“.
When Ralph Isaksson, the technician of the Stockholm-based Globe Arenas, was looking for a reliable video surveillance system for the world-famous venue, he had several requirements in mind. The future system solution had to meet all of them. “We wanted to make sure that our events are safe and enjoyable for both the audience and the performers”, Isaksson explains.
When we are talking about a large arena like Globe Arenas, which attracts over 1.4 million visitors annually, the biggest security challenge is to prevent disturbances. Threats need to be detected on time, and there needs to be the capacity to react quickly to them.
Anders Lundgren, a partner of a Swedish security company (Svensk Säkerhetsvideo AB) presented several different options, but the Mirasys VMS Enterprise system was the only one that fulfilled all of the strict criteria. Needless to say that Isaksson chose the Mirasys solution, which offered all of the required features – and more.
“The system has to be easy to use, and a Swedish interface must be available. In addition, the system has to cover future needs, that is, there must be the possibility for expansions and upgrades. We also wanted an open platform system, so that we have the freedom to choose the cameras that suit our purposes.”
