Since its completion in 2017, the Gazprom Enviornment has served as the house floor stadium for the Russian soccer membership, Zenit St. Petersburg. And as one of many host stadiums for the 2018 FIFA World Cup and the 2021 Euro Soccer Championship, the Gazprom Enviornment should additionally fulfill the strict safety rules of FIFA, UEFA and ESSMA. When choosing the video safety system, the managers accountable at Zenit due to this fact opted for an answer from the German producer, Dallmeier. With its patented Panomera multifocal-sensor system, Dallmeier ensures the safety of many stadiums all around the world.
The target was offering protection with video safety expertise for the whole space surrounding the stadium, the doorway gate approaches, the rooms under grand stands and the grand stands themselves in one of many largest video safety tasks ever undertaken in a soccer stadium. Beneath monumental time strain, a high-performance system needed to be applied within the stadium with a capability of 60,000 followers and but needed to stay adaptable and versatile in response to altering buyer needs because the challenge progressed.
Traceability of offenders via minimal decision
One requirement which occasionally offered the best problem was capturing all areas of all of the grand stands the entire time, in order that unequivocal identification of offenders might be assured in all circumstances. As a way to obtain this, the Russian Inside Ministry stipulated two key necessities for the video safety system: Firstly, it should seize the whole grand stand space with a “minimal decision density” of 250 pixels per metre (px/m). This additionally corresponds to the efficiency criterion outlined within the globally legitimate normal DIN EN 62676-Four for video safety methods for functions of enabling identification of an unknown individual. And secondly, the picture frequency should not fall under a body fee of 25 frames per second (fps). As a result of it’s usually solely the mix of the required minimal decision density and a fluid illustration of occasions that may guarantee incontestable proof that’s usable in a court docket of regulation.
The stadium resolution from Dallmeier satisfies all standards
As a way to meet these stringent necessities, the safety managers invited various distributors to current their options upfront at Zenit’s former residence floor – the Petrovsky Stadium – to allow them to decide on the fitting resolution for the Gazprom Enviornment. A Dallmeier video safety system has already been working within the Petrovsky Stadium since 2012 and after an intensive analysis of all of the options, the operators determined to put in a stadium resolution from Dallmeier within the Gazprom Enviornment as effectively.
As a result of in contrast with typical digital camera applied sciences akin to megapixel or PTZ cameras for instance, the patented Panomera multifocal-sensor system from Dallmeier can assure protection of even the most important expanses with the stipulated minimal decision density and body fee. And Panomera methods repeatedly seize all the things that’s occurring in full decision and permit high-resolution zooms – each dwell and within the recording and by a number of operators on the identical time. This allows stadium operators to trace and reconstruct related occurrences intimately each dwell and after the actual fact.
Dallmeier’s 3D planning
Apart from the technical superiority of the Panomera expertise, one other decisive benefit of the Dallmeier stadium resolution was the progressive 3D planning method, with which a digital copy of the Gazprom Enviornment was created. This makes it very straightforward to fulfil the requirement in accordance with which a minimum of 250 px/m have to be assured actually “in each final nook”: color coding within the 3D simulation makes it doable to see precisely the place the worth has been reached and the place a correction must be made, maybe by organising in a one other place or utilizing a special digital camera mannequin. An additional main benefit of this planning method is the acute effectivity of the answer. For instance, Zenit St. Petersburg is ready to present safety on the terraces all through the Gazprom Enviornment with fewer than 100 Panomera digital camera methods, protecting all areas with a minimum of 250 px/m and 25 fps. Another resolution would have required a considerable four-figure variety of typical single-sensor cameras. Other than enormously excessive infrastructure prices (masts, cables, and many others.) this may even have generated a virtually unmanageable deluge of pictures for the video system operators.
One other advantage of Dallmeier’s 3D planning programme is the automated technology of “CamCards” – precise configuration paperwork for each single digital camera. Armed with this data, installers on web site know precisely which digital camera have to be mounted the place, how excessive and at what angle. The massive benefit apart from the immense period of time saved consists within the planning reliability: It may be predicted with nice accuracy how a lot labour the set up of the full resolution will entail, as a result of this method minimises uncertainty components.
Due to Dallmeier’s unwavering help all through the challenge, testing by the state technical personnel in Russia was additionally profitable within the subsequent challenge phases, with the consequence that the stadium operators had been in a position to start working the video safety system after last challenge commissioning in good time for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
In the present day, over 1,000 single-sensor cameras have been put in within the Gazprom Enviornment along with the Panomera methods – these safeguard the remaining areas of the stadium. Because of the massive variety of cameras, the full storage capability for the video safety system quantities to greater than six petabytes (equal to about 6,000 TB). Excessive-performance recording home equipment from Dallmeier are used to course of this data. Authorised personnel from numerous departments and stakeholders can entry the system at 80 workstations.
The Gazprom Enviornment is a totally safe stadium
The video safety system from Dallmeier has offered ample proof of its efficiency capabilities and reliability within the working of the Gazprom Enviornment, not least throughout the seven matches of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
On this topic, Karlheinz Biersack, Director Gross sales Jap Europe/RUS/GUS at Dallmeier explains: “After all we had been delighted that the safety managers of Zenit St. Petersburg additionally determined to depend on Dallmeier once more for his or her new residence, the Gazprom Enviornment. This success within the largest stadium challenge we’ve ever undertaken and exhibits as soon as once more that Dallmeier’s holistic safety and resolution method – above all of the patented Panomera expertise and our unrivalled challenge and consulting companies symbolize an immense profit for our prospects.”
