AMG Supplies CCTV Transmission Solution for India’s Inaugural Formula One Grand Prix

AMG has supplied its AMG5000 transmission solution to equip the new Indian Formula One circuit.

With a name derived from the word Buddha, representing peace and calm, the new Buddh International Circuit just outside New Delhi hosted the prestigious event on October 30th to establish India on the global Formula One map.

With an investment of approximately USD 215 million, a circuit of just over 5 km has been created within a total area of 875 acres. The initial seating capacity is 110,000 and this is excpected to increase to 200,000.

Indian based Pan Intellecom Ltd is responsible for implementing the surveillance project for the F1 event and Managing Director Mr Harbir Singh explains why the company chose the AMG transmission solution.

“AMG Systems has always enjoyed a fantastic reputation for delivering products of very high quality. Not only are AMG’s products cutting edge, the company is also highly acclaimed for their technical support and training. We selected the AMG5000 Series for the project and, although we were very pressed for time leading up to the inaugural Grand Prix, we completed the solution in time for the televised trial runs which started on the Friday. The AMG Transmission solution is taking Video signals with associated data from 225 Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) Cameras back to the onsite control room.”

The lap time for a Formula One car around the 5,141m long track is 1 minute, 27.02 seconds, an average speed of 210.03 km/h (131 mph). At the end of the long straight between corners 3 and 4, Formula One cars reached a top speed of about 318 km/h (198 mph). The Buddh International Circuit is part of the Jaypee Greens Sports City, which will also include a 100,000 seat cricket stadium, an 18 hole golf course, a hockey stadium and a sports academy.
