The Tall Ship Races 2013 real-time monitored with Axis cameras

Szczecin Municipality makes rally of the world’s largest and most beautiful sailing ships available for virtual participants via video surveillance footage

“Our involvement in such a large and spectacular event brought about the intended result. In the opinion of the organizers and all members of security staff directly involved in the event, security requirements were met. For us at mvb, it has been an invaluable source of know how and expertise in the scope of monitoring events of such type.” Agata Paciejewska-Strzelska, mvb’s marketing manager.


In August 2013, the city of Szczecin was the meeting place of the world’s grandest and most beautiful sailing ships along with thousands of visitors and tourists. The organizers aimed to prepare a sailing fiesta at world level. The success of the event was partially due to the highest degree of security provided to all TTSR participants and the city’s residents.


TTSR’s official partner was the Szczecin based company mvb, responsible for providing organisers and journalists with multimedia packages containing necessary software, as well as for preparing the IT infrastructure. Mvb’s key task was to provide security to the event. With the use of modern IT solutions, a concept for an integrated IP surveillance system, offered by Axis Communications, was developed and implemented.


The event area was covered by monitoring measures based on AXIS Q6035-E Network Cameras providing the highest image quality, real time view and live broadcast of the event on YouTube. The system was installed and configured especially to meet this event’s needs. The system covered the entire area of the event: the mainland, the quay, the islands and areas of water by the entrance to the port. Proactive video surveillance consisted of ongoing analysis of the images from cameras in special surveillance centres, and the operators interpreting the incidents and, when necessary, initiate preventive measures in the public space.
