Konica Minolta Builds MOBOTIX Video Surveillance System for Ski Arena

In just 6 weeks, Konica Minolta set up a MOBOTIX video security system for the world-famous Norwegian ski arena Vikersund that enables the organizers of numerous World Ski Flying Championships to monitor the entire area free from blind spots. The system not only meets the customer's requirements, it even exceeds them in terms of smooth operation, image quality, and cost control according to Mr. Brørn Henning Jahren, Department Manager Arena/IT Vikersund.


“Konica Minolta installed six MOBOTIX MOVE SpeedDome 340 pan-tilt-zoom cameras. Their 40x zoom and 360° horizontal and vertical manoeuvrability make these devices ideal for covering large areas and scaling-up of crowds to detect and analyse possible irregularities and act upon them,” Tonny Frederiksen, MOBOTIX Regional Sales Manager Nordics, says of the project. The cameras are also suitable for surveillance in complete darkness and in harsh weather conditions of up to -40°C. All the cameras are connected to a MOBOTIX data storage system. In addition, the MOBOTIX MxMC system enables faster and more intuitive camera control.


“The project demonstrates just how well the cooperation between MOBOTIX and Konica Minolta is progressing,” explains MOBOTIX CEO Thomas Lausten. “Since Konica Minolta joined MOBOTIX as a strategic investor, both companies have been working together to market our solutions for the benefit of our customers,” says Lausten.
