Euro 2016 poses major security challenge for public authorities
Posted by Mira Shah on 12 July 2016 02:25 PM

As football fans gather in France to celebrate the biggest sports event in Europe, the Euro2016 tournament sets up a major security challenge for public authorities.

Starting on June 10, the 2016 UEFA European Championships takes place in 12 locations across France. In addition to the participating teams, the biggest sports event in Europe attracts more than 2,5 million visitors and sets up an ex-tensive security challenge for the public authorities. Calls for more video surveillance have risen to increase security in football stadiums as well as in public spaces such as train and metro stations, shopping centres and tourist attractions.

Due to the terrorist threat and other events such as the recent violent clashes among sports fans, security needs are often emphasized during major public gatherings. In public, the use of video surveillance is expected to bring more security to people and operations, but the fact is that many video surveillance systems are actually build up to gather footage and evidential material. To provide the expected security value, these systems need to evolve towards taking a proactive approach to security and enable measures that go beyond traditional video recording. The traditional fixed systems also need to become quickly adaptable to temporary and mission-critical operations involved in events like Euro2016.

A modern, sophisticated video security system is more than just video surveillance. It ties together fixed and mobile video sources, mobile security forces in the field, as well as stationary and temporary operation control centres. Ex-panding a fixed system with mobile and temporary modules can create an agile tool that supports efficient decision making and fits the needs of multiple authorities. However, as the number of operators and video cameras involved can rise extremely high, designing, building and operating such a system requires careful design and advanced inte-gration capabilities. What is more, data security and encryption within the system needs to be fully guaranteed during the operations.

Despite the challenges, we will see video surveillance implementations becoming more and more complex and so-phisticated in the future. To meet the requirements of flexibility and easy adaptation to changing environments, capa-bilities for mobile and temporary operations will be further emphasized. In addition, reinforcing the systems with fea-tures such as video content analysis will take intelligence deeper into the operations, and make it possible to utilize a set of automatic features to promote security. What we are ultimately talking about is approaching security from a pro-active point of view, in which footage, timely and accurate information, operative capabilities, and analytical features all unite in a seamless, operative entity.

Case reference: Teleste’s video security solution backs up public security in France

The Paris Police Prefecture and the French National Police have deployed Teleste’s video security solution to ensure the safety of people and operations in several locations in France during the 2016 UEFA European Championships. The deployment continues Teleste’s previous co-operation with the Paris Police Prefecture which has utilised our solu-tion to enhance security in the greater Paris area since 2010.

The deployment is carefully designed to meet the needs of the public authorities during the entire tournament. It in-cludes Teleste’s S-VMX mobility platform that extends the capabilities of the company’s S-VMX video management system to all security forces, police officers and first responders on the move. It offers many different possibilities and functions for CCTV mobile operation, including push HD video from an operating centre to mobile devices, mobile camera control from tablets, as well as the localisation of phones and tablets in real time on georeferenced maps, to name but a few.

The implementation, which also enables the effective use of temporary and moving video sources, such as drones and helicopter cameras and mobile command centres, is made possible by the Command & CaptureTM application that allows a seamless federation of events and tasks to a core system and their control from a single operating point. In addition, the best of cryptographic technologies are utilised to ensure fully secured and encrypted communication within the system over both public and private networks.
