Nedap | Date:
Spain saved their best until last at UEFA EURO 2012, a final-record 4-0 victory in Kyiv completing an unprecedented hat-trick of major tournament wins. This record is set in the Olympic Stadium in Kiev, where almost 70,000 visitors followed the match. They could watch the match in a great and safe atmosphere, also thanks to the contribution of Nedap Security Management. Nedap Security Management contributed to this smooth and safe European Championship edition with AEOS security management system for access control and intrusion. In Kiev's Olympic Stadium, Nedap's business partner ISK Transexpo installed CONVEXS M80FC readers at the 480 access points. The venue also deploy AEOS's unique ‘security levels' functionality, enabling security managers to respond swiftly to any calamity that might occur at a major event like EURO 2012. In case of emergency, the system switches to a predefined emergency scenario with alternative access authorizations. This takes just seconds.
Like all other modern stadiums, Kiev is equipped, inside and out, with a permanent closed-circuit television system that can take still shots, and with colour monitors in a control room. AEOS is integrated with the CCTV and burglar alarm systems. Security management at the stadiums can monitor and handle alarms using the AEOS Graphical Alarm Handler; giving the operators clear work instructions. Combined with a graphical representation of buildings, the stadium layouts and alarms, the Graphical Alarm Handler shows the actual status of the alarms and who is handling them. Another very helpful tool used in both stadiums is the fully integrated “Guard Tour” that enables the extensive monitoring and audit trail of security guards. With the Guard Tour it is possible to define a sequence of card readers or alarm inputs that have to be checked within a pre-defined time span during routine tour. With the AEOS Guard Tour option, guards can be sent on their rounds of the premises while their progress is monitored from the control room.
