Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games were Secured by Avigilon HD Video Surveillance Solutions
At the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, Avigilon's HD Surveillance System solution was deployed to provide situational awareness to city emergency management staff and the Vancouver Police Department in their effort to maintain public order and safety at the main pedestrian corridors in the city's downtown core. The surveillance solution included a range of HD cameras installed at main intersections of downtown Vancouver. These installations were connected to the network via the City's fibre backbone. All the cameras were managed using Avigilon Control Center network video management software with HD Stream Management. Kevin Wallinger, Director of Emergency Management for the City of Vancouver, said: "With the Avigilon surveillance solution in place, we gained faster access to critical information that we used to mitigate potentially difficult situations."
