Uniview is covering the 9 hour Kyalami Intercontinental GT Challenge

Itâ’s been 37 years since South Africa hosted the Intercontinental GT Challenge at the Kyalami circuit and it’s anticipated to be the greatest motor event in South Africa this year, where the world’s best endurance drivers and international manufacture i.e. Audi Sport, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Honda, Mercedes-AMG, Nissan, Porsche, Aston Martin and Lamborghini join to fight it out for a place on the grand stage of endurance motor racing in 2019.

Kyalami race track and conference centre was recently revamped with a massive 700+ million Rand investment in order to obtain these prestige international events.

Part of this investment was the implementation of a sophisticated technological infrastructure for their network facilities, security services and hosting services. This included a complete fibre backbone, 5G, dedicated Fibre services as well as a world-class Uniview race surveillance system and control room designed and implemented by Delcor, (supported and distributed by Eurobyte Technology).



What’s unique about the Uniview Kyalami race control room?

Most international race tracks use analogue format surveillance systems because of the high frame rates required to monitor fast-moving vehicles, the limitation of this is the quality of the content management features.

At the Kyalami Race Track, they use specialized high frame rate IP cameras, which have amazing video quality and analytical features such as:

    • Being able to produce day like colour video streams at night
    • Automatic Alerting if a vehicle is pushed off the road/barrier
      o Resulting in a popup video stream of the incident
  • Statics – Motorised lens 10x zoom 4.7~47mm (100m IR)
  • PTZ 4.7~148mm capable of seeing the tiniest details on the track!

Some of the most fascinating features available on the Uniview Kyalami race control room are:

  • Having an interactive E-map that identifies and alerts a particular corner or section of road where an incident has occurred (e.g. if a vehicle is pushed off the road)
  • Advanced incident reporting (where controllers are able to search by incident/event type, or by time)
  • Multi- HD display video wall for superb uninterrupted streams
  • Quick playback feature for single or multiple cameras
  • Vehicle or people counting
  • Facial recognition (identification by photo comparison database)
  • Licence plate number database reporting
