Bahrain International Circuit benefits from IP CCTV system that improves security surveillance and safety at the track

100% surveillance coverage for the home of the Bahrain Grand Prix

As the  Home of Motor sports in the Middle East, the Bahrain International Circuit hosts drag racing, V8 supercar racing, the GP2 series and the annual Grand Prix. At a build cost of $150 million the facility has set new standards in motor sport and the Grand Prix is one of only a handful around the world to be played out to a capacity crowd. To monitor crowd safety at the race track Bahrain International Circuit selected an advanced CCTV solution based on Controlware technology that would be scalable to support future expansion and deliver tangible benefits.

Working with LSS Technologies, a leading integration partner, Controlware provided a comprehensive IP CCTV surveillance solution based around the Cware management platform to monitor spectators, traffic and car parks at the track. The 20-channel IP CCTV solution was installed in time for the Grand Prix and is set to expand as security requirements evolve.

“Having worked together on similar projects we have a great working relationship with Controlware and knew that they had a strong technical solution that would deliver the high quality video transmission and flexible management platform that our customer insisted upon,” said Abdul Rahim Shaikh from LSS Technologies.

The race track benefits from a state-of-the-art IP CCTV solution that provides 100% coverage. At the heart of the solution is Cware, which provides operational benefits and helps improve surveillance. As an open platform, support for multi-vendor hardware provides increased flexibility to integrate leading products from different manufacturers. The track operators also benefit from high-quality video and killer applications that make surveillance easier. ICN (Image Content  Navigation) enables operators to navigate between cameras in the video, taking video interaction to the next level while 2.5D mapping technology, provides advanced site orientation and improves navigation. This enables the operators at the track to benefit from a reliable, easy to use solution that is able to integrate with existing systems and is scalable to support long-term growth of cameras and storage requirements.
