The events hosted annually by the Veronafiere attract up to 800,000 trade fair visitors and exhibitors every year. To ensure security for the outdoor areas of the brand new “Gallerie Mercatali” in Verona, Veronafiere again decided to install a Dallmeier video security system with Panomera cameras.

To help ensure greater safety for its guests, since 2016 Veronafiere has implemented a Dallmeier video security system with a total of 15 Panomera cameras. The initiative protects as much as possible both exhibitors, starting from the stand set-up phase, and visitors and operators, during the events. This high-tech solution also allows for objective management of any complaints, in a rapid, reassuring and unequivocal way.

“Recognition” over the entire area with minimum number of cameras

In 2021 the Dallmeier Panomera video coverage was also extended to the spaces of the “Gallerie Mercatali” of Verona, transformed by Veronafiere into additional exhibition and meeting spaces serving business and the city, after a long conservative restoration intervention of the two archaeological industrial structures.

“The purpose of the video system is to minimize the hazards from vandalism, theft and unauthorised entry, even when no trade fairs or events are taking place. At the same time, Veronafiere wanted to watch over the adjacent parking area”, says Simone Sterza, System Engineer of Italsicurezza, installer and system integrator who collaborates with Dallmeier. “It was just as important to the customer to have the best possible price-performance ratio: Veronafiere wanted to have 'Recognition' image quality according to DIN 62676‐4 over the entire area to be monitored, with the smallest number of cameras possible and low total operating costs.” Furthermore, the system should also offer high availability and have comprehensive data protection and data security functions.

Detailed coverage of expansive areas

To find a video solution that satisfies the requirements profile, Veronafiere instituted a call for tenders, which was won by the Italian general contractor Cubi S.r.l. One of the main reasons the contract was awarded to Cubi was that as a customer of Italsicurezza, it was able to offer the patented  Panomera multifocal sensor cameras.

The remarkable feature of the Panomera cameras is that they can capture long distances and large expanses in high resolution. To do this, they combine up to seven detail sensors having various focal lengths with an overview sensor in one optical unit. The result is a homogeneous, high resolution total image covering the entire area that is to be captured.

The benefit in this case is equivalent to combining multiple 4K cameras with any number of “virtual” PTZ systems, but with significantly lower total operating costs. The reason for this is that, apart from fewer cameras, users also need considerably less infrastructure, such as cables, masts, network, and monitors, to be able to see everything that is happening.

Simple mounting system

“Besides their well-known image quality, the thing I found particularly surprising about the new Dallmeier Panomera cameras was how quickly and easily we were able to mount them”, declares Simone Sterza, System Engineer with Italsicurezza. “Just a single Allen key size was needed for all of the main installation and adjustment work. Thanks to the Mountera mounting system we were able to mount the cameras safely using just one technician, without needing any assistance from a second person."

"The Dallmeier system”, concludes Simone Sterza, “helps to ensure that exhibitors and visitors have an untroubled, enjoyable trade fair experience.”
