Axis HDTV network cameras ensure security and web broadcasting of the tournament
“The IP video surveillance solution that we have implemented for the Gemax Open definitely made sense and saved us time and money in preparation and realization of the tournament. Internet live video streaming of the tournament with Axis network cameras further improved the tournament’s ranking and gave us ideas for a wide range of IP-based applications.“ Zoran Aleksievski, IT Manager, Gemax d.o.o.
Tournament management requested an IP video surveillance system that would guarantee a high security level at the sports arena, tennis tournament and related tournament conference activities. Along with the security aspect of the event, the organizers requested an additional system for the live video streaming of the matches played on court, in order to facilitate the web broadcasting of all tennis matches.
Gemax Open opted for a video surveillance solution consisting of Axis HDTV network cameras, Netavis Observer video management software and Neteye network video recorders. Live web broadcasting of the tennis matches was carried out using the AXIS Q1755 HDTV Network Cameras with H.264 compression.
Thanks to the IP video solution based on Axis network cameras, Gemax Open organizers ensured a remarkably high level of tournament security. Furthermore, the Axis cameras helped them to broadcast the tournament matches via the Internet, thus raising the international rating of the Gemax Open and significantly influencing media coverage.
