Bosch Security Systems is one of the principal suppliers of security equipment for the World Expo 2010
in Shanghai, China.
This event of global significance, which opened on May 1, 2010 and is scheduled to run until October 31, is expected to receive between 70 and 100 million visitors. Within the 5.3 square kilometre Expo site, exhibits from 192 countries and 50 organisations are on show. Over the six months that the exposition will run, it will host around 20,000 cultural performances.
The China Pavilion is one of the largest and most important buildings in the exposition and will be among the legacies to be left in place at the end of World Expo 2010. It highlights the host country's long-standing history and time-honoured culture.
The Expo Axis has been fully equipped with a Bosch advanced video surveillance system and a Praesideo digital public address system
To protect visitors to the China Pavilion, nearly 700 Bosch high-performance cameras were installed inside and outside the pavilion to offer comprehensive real-time monitoring of areas such as the surroundings, interior exhibition rooms and elevators. The Bosch Allegiant 8900 Matrix System was installed in the central control room of the pavilion. Offering full matrix switching capability, the system displays video from any camera on any monitor and provides powerful alarm handling capabilities.
Connected to the China Pavilion, the Expo Axis is the central boulevard of the Expo site and consists of steel-glass funnels with a 1,000 metre long membrane construction. The Expo Axis project is the largest single project at the Expo site, and adopts a whole new architectural form.
The Expo Axis has been fully equipped with a Bosch advanced video surveillance system comprising more than 800 Bosch cameras and a Praesideo digital public address system connected to more than 1,600 speakers installed within the structure's magnificent architecture.
The Expo Centre is one of the most important permanent venues in the Shanghai Expo site, and takes on the functions of an operational command centre, Festival Conference Centre, Press Centre and the Forum Centre. After World Expo 2010, the Expo Centre with more than 60 meeting spaces will become one of the leading international conference centres in the country. Bosch provided the DCN NG Digital Conference System for Expo Centre.
