Axis IP cameras and the Milestone software platform, a company of the Canon group, at the service of the “Concertone”, the final evening of the Salento musical kermesse held on 25 August in Melpignano, near Lecce.
The 21st edition of the “Notte della Taranta” ended with the usual final evening, a concert in the square that, as every year, has seen a large audience participation. Overall, the event attracted over 150.000 people in a day and a night of music, characterized by dancing, frenetic rhythms and fun. The “Notte della Taranta” is in fact an event dedicated to the rediscovery and enhancement of traditional Salento music and its fusion with other musical languages, from world music to rock, from jazz to symphonic music.
To ensure the fundamental security and control, in addition to the commitment of the Police, it is necessary to use IP video surveillance technologies and solutions such as those provided by Canon Italia, Axis Communications and Milestone, as partners of the organization.
The installation company, Connect ICS, was able to use the Axis Communications and Canon digital cameras and the Milestone software platform to provide security for participants, musicians and staff, with solutions that provide clear, high resolution images, rapid focus management and a high level of detail. The XProtect Corporate platform is Milestone Systems’ most advanced enterprise solution, currently used to guarantee security in airports, cities, critical infrastructures and places where a high safety standard is required.
Fifteen Axis Communications cameras have been installed, equipped with Wide Dynamic Range – Forensic Capture for high quality video in situations with significant light variations, and Lightfinder, for the use of images even in low light. Other useful features such as the detection of people’s movement, facial recognition and perimeter control for unauthorized access have also been guaranteed.
Canon has instead contributed with… 4.000.000 ISO to see even in the dark! The Canon ME20F-SH camcorder offers a sensitivity of over 4.000.000 ISO, which allows shooting even in extreme light conditions. A ME20F-SH camera was focused on the public of “La Notte Della Taranta” not only for security, but also to provide images to professional video applications related to the event, such as video walls and projections.
