PANASONIC SECURITY SOLUTIONS AT THE ZIGGO DOME / AMSTERDAM
Since its opening in 2012 the Ziggo Dome has built up a solid reputation. Big names such as Adele, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga and Pearl Jam have already performed there.
The concert hall, which belongs to Live Nation (who also own the Amsterdam ArenA and the Heineken Music hall) can hold around 17,000 concertgoers and is fully equipped for optimal acoustics. An astounding 840,000 LED lights are used to turn the exterior of the building into a huge screen, enabling those standing outside to also gain a sense of the atmosphere inside the concert hall.
With some 100 events and more than 1 million visitors a year, security is a key concept at the Ziggo Dome. Around 180 Panasonic digital surveillance cameras record what is happening at the concert venue non-stop. "Monitoring a building like the Ziggo Dome is no small task. The cameras are mainly used to support our security team of 150 employees, which is always in direct contact with the control room," says Ronald Fiolet, Director of Operations of the Ziggo Dome.
A Panasonic 42" touch screen display gives the central coordinator in the control room an overview of all the surveillance cameras via a plan of the concert hall. "Thanks to the touch screen, he can quickly switch from one camera to another. If there is an incident, we have images of what is going on within seconds. Using the plan, the central coordinator can also guide security staff or emergency workers to the right place, while viewing them with live camera images." Fiolet adds: "The system is quick and easy to use. The Ziggo Dome can be a real maze, but with the Panasonic system we can be on the spot inside a minute".
But the surveillance cameras are still running even when there is absolutely nothing to do. "At such times there are no security staff present," explains Fiolet. "Thanks to the Panasonic cameras we still have 24-hour awareness of everything that is going on in the Ziggo Dome."
