Celebrate safely – ABUS video surveillance at the Electrisize Festival

Incidents at international music events, such as those in Paris and Manchester, have unfortunately shown that enjoying a concert is no longer the carefree experience it once was. Major events organisers therefore have a responsibility to ensure that their visitors are as safe as possible. This means that security technology and staff need to work together even more effectively so attendees can really enjoy themselves. The organisers of the Electrisize Festival in Erkelenz, Germany, one of the largest dance music festivals in the region of North Rhine-Westphalia, therefore rely on the combination of ABUS video surveillance and trained personnel to provide comprehensive round-the-clock protection for their visitors. With the help of Outdoor IP Tube Cameras and Outdoor IP PTZ Dome Cameras, which can zoom in to look at individual people, criminal behaviour is detected quickly and prevented effectively. Video recording ensures that even unresolved cases can be cleared up at a later date.
