One company that is able to offer solutions and services required is Siemens Southern Africa, whose German parent has installed a Siemens safety management system in nearly every World Cup soccer stadium in
Siemens has combined fire, smoke, and motion detectors on a single, centrally-controlled platform in its new safety management system. The modular system can be configured and adapted to the individual needs of each stadium.
Adapting and integrating new technologies isn't always easy in every stadium, as the experience with the communications technologies in the Olympic Stadium in
Thanks to Siemens engineers, the membrane ceiling of the stadium conceals the sound system, which consists of 2,300 loudspeakers, along with the bulk of the safety, media and communications technology with its more than 300 kilometres of cable.
Also invisible, but nonetheless highly effective, is the communications system installed by Siemens in the World Cup stadium in
Journalists will also be able to take advantage of other services immediately following the big event. A special multimedia system developed by Siemens allows reporters to use their mobile equipment to transmit images and sound directly from the stadium. A broadcasting van, which used to be necessary to link the journalists to their networks, is no longer needed.
