The advanced surveilance system employed a colossal 2,500 cameras, each installed manually to relay images back to the system for various processing. A tremendous amount of effort was placed in the installation process to support the safe operation of the Olympic Games. To support safe operation of the event is one of the missions Panasonic had during these Olympic Games. The one issue was the tight schedule. For instance, Wimbledon, the official tennis compatition venue for Games, only allowed for eight days to complete the installation. To ensure seamless setup, it became necessary to design a plan for installation and configure each camera ahead of time.
To facilitate, Panasonic established the Engineering Centre and Systems Solution Centre in the suburbs of London. Preparation started a year prior to the Games, such as building a plan of action for installation, system development, and equipment testing. Such meticulous preparation led to a smooth installation, and helped support the safety efforts of the London 2012.
