Wimbledon Champions Videosoft for Event Security Surveillance

The Wimbledon Championships have stepped up event security operations this year by installing real-time Rapid Deployment cameras provided by Videosoft Global, faultlessly streaming the entire first week without any issues.

Videosoft are leaders in real-time video surveillance solutions for government operations and local authorities, serving up real-time video for large public events using the lowest possible bandwidth. Offering greater flexibility than traditional video management systems, Rapid Deployment cameras combined with real-time visuals are revolutionising large-scale public event management such as this.

With the RDS-900 unit positioned at the entrance of Centre Court, Merton Council can ensure the wellbeing of the local community and all visitors to Wimbledon, no matter the network conditions. Quick and easy to install, the Videosoft RDS-900 Pole Camera streams low latency real-time video to the control room VMS over 3G/4G cellular networks. Often the case at busy sporting events when cellular towers become congested, sharing bandwidth with multiple devices in one area can severely interrupt internet speed and critical data transmission. Able to switch between mesh and cellular networks with ease, leading public surveillance solutions from Videosoft Global create secure, low-bandwidth networks to keep critical communication flowing as events unfold.
