2013 Equestrian Endurance race - Borotín

Attractive horse races through the eyes of powerful Axis IP cameras

“The installed mobile camera system was really beneficial to our event. The wide range of use, quick installation and cost-effective rental pleasantly surprised us.“ Antonín Hrdina, 2013 Endurance Race - Borotín event organizer.

Mission

Endurance horse riding is a fast growing equestrian discipline and a demanding sport requiring extremely well-trained horses, riders and support teams. Organization of these equestrian competitions also places huge demands on the event personnel. The Hrdina Riding Stable, which is organizing the third annual National Endurance race in the South Bohemian city of Borotín is well aware of that. 115 horses were registered for this and for other races as well. During two days they had to cover a distance of 180 km. Therefore, the event organizers were looking for ways to make the work of judges and referees more efficient and also for additional ways to introduce this attractive sport to the general public.

Solution

The organizers decided to use Axis IP cameras and mobile monitoring solutions provided by NetRex. Thanks to these leased technologies the requirements of the event organizers were successfully fulfilled. NetRex MVSi 01 mobile systems fitted with AXIS P1354-E HDTV Network Cameras, suitable for day and night operation, were installed at the Start area and at veterinary checks. Streaming NetRex services broadcasted video images and sound from cameras to a central platform where the stream was reproduced and subsequently distributed to audiences and to their computers, mobile phones or tablets. Recordings were continuously stored via the Internet in remote secure servers, and at the same time (in high quality) directly on SD cards inside the relevant cameras.

Result

Direct broadcasting available on many websites allowed direct visitors but also many fans and the general public to soak up the exciting atmosphere of this attractive sport. The image transmitted by the cameras to a monitoring station and to mobile phones and tablets made the work of the event staff and support teams much easier. The recorded picture was an indispensable tool for referees trying to solve irregularities and, at the same time, it was used as a great marketing and promotion instrument. The overall benefits of the applied solution were further enhanced by economical lease prices paid for the entire technology, which did not put any significant financial burden on the event budget.
