Base Jump Case Study

Base Jump is the biggest trampoline park in the South East of England, offering over 35,000 square feet of fun with a capacity of up to 175 people. This new and unique trampoline park in Essex is designed to offer various activities ranging from standard jump sessions to fitness classes for children, teenagers and adults as well as catering for group parties and events.

The Challenge  

Usually, a CCTV surveillance system is used to provide a layer of security, however Base Jump have taken the use of CCTV a step further. As part of the initial planning to build the ultimate trampoline park, Base Jump required a High Definition surveillance system at every trampoline play area to monitor, record and access footage of any incidents that may occur.

Similar to other sports, jumping on trampolines can be dangerous and can result in sporting injuries. Although the trampoline park employs staff at each play area to supervise and ensure customers watch a safety video, injuries can still take place. The aim of the CCTV system is to record such incidents and enable Base Jump to review the footage and determine the cause of the injury and to see how such injury can be prevented in the future.

As part of their health and safety process, Base Jump ensures that all customer injuries are recorded and depending on the severity of the injury, a recorded footage is usually downloaded and kept on file. This helps Base Jump in both reducing liability against potential legal claims but most importantly it helps them to greatly reduce their insurance premium.

The requirement was a CCTV system that covered 35,000 square feet of footprint but also offered High Definition Imaging.

The Solution

As part of their health and safety process, Base Jump ensures that all customer injuries are recorded and depending on the severity of the injury, a recorded footage is usually downloaded and kept on file. This helps Base Jump in both reducing liability against potential legal claims but most importantly it helps them to greatly reduce their insurance premium.

Scott Francis Managing Director at AVS reviewed Base Jump’s requirements and based on the size of the project, AVS proposed and recommended Genie’s latest WISH IP range.

The WISH IP range is a series of IP cameras providing high quality full 1080p HD surveillance images using sophisticated network protocols. Catering for different requirements, the WISH IP series of cameras are offered in various forms and range between 1.3 megapixel to 3 megapixel.

The IP Network cameras are ideal because they offer High Definition imaging which was a prime requirement for Base Jump but they also allow scalability if future cameras are added to the network.  The WISH IP 3 megapixel range also provided real-time Full HD recording which was essential  for the client, as they are using the recorded footage to analyse incidents and cannot afford to have any lag in the recording.

Furthermore, Genie’s user-friendly NVMS1000 software is also ideal for the client’s requirements as the software allows staff to retrieve any footage easily whenever its required.

AVS reviewed the trampoline site design plan with Genie and proposed Base Jump with 64 3 megapixel IP cameras consisting of Genie’s latest Auto Focus bullet (WIP3BVAF), Vandal (WIP3VDV) and Eyeball (WIP3EBV) cameras. To support this complex system, two 32 channel NVR’s (WNVR832P) with 96TB storage capacity were required. Using the NVMS1000 software meant the client only required two monitors to display all 64 cameras.

 

 

The Result

All 64 HD cameras are displayed on two monitor screens.

“We are really impressed with the High Definition images from the Genie IP network cameras and user-friendly software. We have now decided to display CCTV footage from the play area onto a big screen near the café so that parents can enjoy a coffee and keep an eye on their children playing.”
-Base Jump (Owners)-

“Using Genie’s latest WISH IP Auto Focus 3MP cameras was a great help. Having the benefit of not focusing the camera manually made a significant difference in the installation time and helped us meet Base Jump’s launch deadline.”
