​World-Class Security

Ion Oblemenco Stadium in the Romanian city of Craiova is home to football club CS Universitatea Craiova and has more than 30,000 seats. The futuristic stadium was built to host international and premium league matches, requiring a security solution that meets European football championship standards for safety.

Craiova officials chose Bosch to implement a complete security solution. Bosch experts installed a fire and safety solution with four fire panels and 1,500 detectors. The sound system includes Electro-Voice Pro Sound speakers for music and commentary, Dynacord Promatrix for evacuation, Bosch loudspeakers for interior sound, and a conference and interpretation system for the pressroom.

The fully integrated video security system supports 211 cameras, centrally managed via the Bosch Video Management System. Video is monitored by operator personnel and members of Romania’s police during matches and stored on two Bosch DIVAR IP 7000 network video recording units.​
