Airport-like security

The security centre is well prepared for the upcoming event. "We are now occupied from around the clock," said Herbert Wagner, the security operations manager. With such a huge TV show the organisers should prepare for everything. At the song contest a particularly high level of security is required. "We have indeed own X-ray devices like at the airport and any other event," says Wagner.

Inside the hall work has already started as well. Christoph Malin and Matthias Hosp work on a time-lapse camera that shows how the stage is built. The camera will programmed by a remote control and you can then access it from anywhere.
