SEA Games 2015 featured 36 sports and 402 events. Conceived 28 years ago as a means to help forge strong regional cooperation, understanding and unity within the South East Asian community, the Games once again returned to Singapore who were also the hosts in 1973, 1983 and 1993.
During the 11 days of the Games, which commenced on 5th June, 2015, live images from over 500 cameras installed at sporting arenas located throughout Singapore were transmitted to a central control room where they were recorded and stored onto an enterprise level Wavestore Video Management Software (VMS) solution. The users were able to use Wavestore’s leading review suite to search and instantaneous retrieve recorded video of any incidents and display them alongside live images of any activity occurring within the arenas and surrounding areas.
Wavestore’s VMS sat at the very heart of the total video surveillance system designed by Wavestore’s distribution partner in Singapore, Cyrus Innovations Pte Ltd.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to contribute to the success of the SEA Games 2015,” said Chris Williams, Director of International Sales for Wavestore. “We worked closely with Cyrus Innovations Pte Ltd in order to ensure that the client was able to take full advantage of the innovative and technically advanced features of the Wavestore VMS, in order to create a safe environment for everyone who attended or participated in the Games.”
News of the success of this contract for Wavestore follows on from a recent announcement that the company has been presented with two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise for Innovation and International Trade. Wavestore is one of only two businesses in 2015 to have won two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, the most prestigious accolades for businesses in the United Kingdom.
