Bosch Security Systems is one of the principal suppliers of security equipment for the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai, China.
This event of global significance is expected to receive between 70 and 100 million visitors. Within the 5.3 square kilometer Expo site, exhibits from 192 countries and 50 organizations are on show. Over the six months that the exposition will run, it will host around 20,000 cultural performances.
The China Pavilion is one of the largest and most important buildings in the exposition and will be among the legacies to be left in place at the end of 2010 World Expo. It highlights the host country's long-standing history and time-honored culture.
To protect visitors to the China Pavilion, nearly 700 Bosch cameras were installed inside and outside the pavilion to offer comprehensive real-time monitoring of areas such as the surroundings, interior exhibition rooms and elevators. The Bosch video control system was installed in the central control room of the pavilion. Offering full matrix switching capability, the system displays video from any camera on any monitor and provides alarm handling capabilities.
Connected to the China Pavilion, the Expo Axis is the central boulevard of the Expo site and consists of steel-glass funnels with a 1,000-meter long membrane construction. The Expo Axis project is the largest single project at the Expo site, and adopts a whole new architectural form.
The Expo Axis has been fully equipped with a Bosch video surveillance system comprising more than 800 Bosch cameras. A digital public address system connected to more than 1,600 speakers is installed within the structure's magnificent architecture as well.
The Expo Center is one of the most important permanent venues in the Shanghai Expo site, and takes on the functions of an operational command center, Festival Conference Center, Press Center and the Forum Center. After 2010 World Expo, the Expo Center with more than 60 meeting spaces will become one of the international conference centers in the country.
