Bosch Supplies Security Technology for Sport Stadiums in South America

 It is crucial for every sports stadium to have accurately designed emergency plans and advanced safety measurements in place. At two major South American arenas, Bosch Security Systems recently demonstrated the necessary steps for trouble-free sports competitions on a large scale.

To mark the completion of the Copa America in 2011, the Malvinas Argentinas Stadium was overhauled. Its renovation included an enhancement of amenities and facilities, as well as a major update of the stadium’s safety technology. A total of 17 cameras, including Bosch’s Dinion and FlexiDome cameras with Intelligent Video Analysis, were placed at entrances, corridors and training rooms.

The video surveillance system is integrated into the Center of Strategic Operations of the city of Mendoza. Angel Pitton, head of the department of Informatics and Telecommunications of the Ministry of Mendoza says: “We are now able to control the access of people to the stadium, detect crimes or unusual situations in real time and, crucially, give logistical support to security personnel. The link to Mendoza’s emergency center not only ensures prompt police services, but also the support of fire-fighters and medical emergency personnel.”

Being one of the chosen venues to host the FIFA U-20 World Cup 2011, the Hernán Ramírez Villegas stadium in Pereira, Colombia, assigned Bosch Security Systems to support the adaptation and modernization of the entire stadium according to the FIFA’s strict technical recommendations. A newly installed system now allows video monitoring, public voice messaging and the reproduction of anthems as well as audio playbacks from the stadium’s large screens.

To capture detailed images at all times, AutoDome PTZ and Dinion cameras were installed throughout the venue. In addition to the cameras, 700 Series recorders were also implemented. Furthermore, an extensive audio system ensures clear emergency messaging and PA announcements and can also be used for music.

As a result, school leaders are now charged with two non-negotiable responsibilities. The first, as always, is to ensure kids have what they need to learn, grow, and thrive.
