Details emerge about centralized monitoring system used during World Cup 2018
In preparation for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, AxxonSoft customized settings on more than 1,350 video channels, including 9 facial recognition channels, at three stadiums and a central monitoring station to meet the requirements of the country’s Ministry of Internal Affairs.
The system, which was launched within a month by a team of five people from AxxonSoft, also included 41 license plate recognition channels, according to the announcement. The facial recognition channels monitored stadium access points to identify individuals prohibited from entering.
AxxonSoft’s Intellect PSIM platform was used to pool more than 390 video channels from all 11 World Cup host cities at the Ministry of Internal Affairs central monitoring station.
“Start-up was done as part of our full post-installation testing and adjusting services. Our team completed this enormous undertaking within just one month,” notes Roman Khristoforov, head of AxxonSoft’s Technical Support Department. “Along with these services, we provide consultation to partners during post-installation start-up and handle requests to customize the software’s application as part of our projects. If a customized feature can be useful for other users, we include it in the development plan.”
Features added for the World Cup include integration with access control software, and a screen manager for adaptable management of camera layout and the visual wall. These features will be included in Intellect 4.11.0.
The Intellect PSIM platform was used in various areas around 10 of the 12 stadiums used, as well as training camps, fan zones, and transportation infrastructure, combining streams from 9,000 cameras powered by Intellect.
SITA says that its airport self-service gates at Moscow Domodedovo Airport processed more than 1.2 million passengers during the 2018 World Cup.
