Following AUF guidelines, H&O deployed an access control system based on face recognition and video surveillance of each stadium’s entry points, as well as seats, bleachers, and stands. To be completely effective, however, a security system of this magnitude needed real-time image processing. Thanks to Ultra HD and Full HD monitors from ViewSonic, the clear and detailed imaging needed for complete surveillance was possible.
A central control room was equipped with ViewSonic VX2475SMHL-4K monitors that delivered stunningly detailed images ideal for facial recognition and identification. ViewSonic VA2407H Full HD monitors were used for general surveillance and playback of the security cameras. ViewSonic monitors were installed in three of Montevideo’s major stadiums, in three separate stages: the Centenario (13 screens), the Campeón del Siglo (11 screens), and the Gran Parque Central (11 screens).
According to H&O, they chose ViewSonic monitors because in comparison to similar brands, ViewSonic delivered the best possible solution at a reasonable cost. In addition, H&O searched for monitors that would meet the specific needs of the AUF:
- HDMI Connectivity
- VESA-compliant mounts for installation in the control rooms
- Good image quality and high resolutions
- Brand reputation and perceived quality of products
- Reliability and durability
“We chose ViewSonic because of the quality of their products, and because of their great reputation as a partner,” Diego Di Bello, CEO of Home&Office, said. “We also took screen durability into account, and we feel that ViewSonic delivers a more reliable product when compared to other brands we looked at. This project is meant to last five years, and we want the screens to look the same from the first day to the last day of the project, and we want the clients to be happy throughout the project.”
