Delhi ups security ahead of Commonwealth Games

Delhi Police is bolstering its surveillance with Barco in anticipation of the Commonwealth Games 2010. HCL Security, a subsidiary of HCL Infosystems, was chosen to set up the C4i (Command, Control, Communication, Computing and Intelligence) centre.

The project incorporates a highly sophisticated surveillance system for communication with Delhi patrol officers during the Commonwealth Games 2010.

The C4i center will utilise Barco's LED-based technology, consisting of sixteen 50” display cubes along with two 46” Narrow-bezel LCD monitors and a control room management suite. Nearly 1000 police control room (PCR) vans, 12 police video monitoring vehicles and 700 other monitoring vehicles will be linked to the centre. Live feeds from cameras will be displayed at the centre, and threat information – colour-coded in red, yellow or green, according to the severity of the threat – will be flashed across the screens. Any suspicious movement, or an emergency, will be spotted at the centre and relayed to the local police.

“We are proud and honoured to contribute to the safety of Delhi during the Commonwealth Games 2010,” concluded Mr. Nalin Advani, managing director, Barco India.
