ARC Event Solutions Ltd ltd’s (ARC) unique award winning mobile security checkpoint proved its capabilities when it was operationally launched at the Zoo Project Festival ( ) held over three Days at Donnington Park Raceway at the weekend ( 30th Aug – 1st Sept)

AP Security Manager Chris Holland following discussion and agreement with ZOO Promoter Oli Bartlam of Full Fat Events, utilized the innovative ARC checkpoint with great success recognising its offer of a unique means of screening ticket holders in a Green Field situation. ” The ARC mobile system provided us with full audience and baggage screening facilities to Airport standard, which removed the possibility of weapons, banned items and other illegal objects entering the Festival site.We were also able to monitor the campsite areas using a stand-alone ARC CCTV tower fitted with both HD day and night vision fully managed cameras with data capture, also developed by ARC for the events industry. The comprehensive CCTV images were fed back, via secured wifi to the control unit in real time with full auditing capability for evidential gathering Mr Holland added that use of the ARC mobile units was simple, quickly positioned and are fully operating within 45 minutes.

A spokesman for Leicestershire Police who were in attendance throughout the weekend said that they were impressed with the ARC unit’s capabilities, operation and the excellent level of quality equipment.

As a soft deterrent we believe they should be introduced across the event market to increase safety and reduce crime. “We welcome and recommend the use of such clever user- friendly solutions”, he said.

ARC’s Commercial Director Roger Edwards said the company intended rolling out a rental fleet over the coming months to provide major events with a range of solutions that uses current state of the art fully tested and certified equipment. As all is mounted and secured in a sophisticated yet simple to deliver and deploy mobile unit, which is up and running within forty five minutes of arrival on site. It is easy to provide a nationwide service. “We are in discussions with Major film and TV companies wanting to vet visitors, in addition to the Event Industry, Law Enforcement Authorities and Government Agencies around the world”, he said, adding that recent media reporting of International Festivals drug deaths highlighted the increasing need to more effectively monitor crowds whether at Sport (Boston Marathon) or Entertainment events for their own safety together with those around them.
