Stadium surveillance solution features Axis HDTV cameras

Published by Dan on April 20, 2010 3:31 PM

Parma's Ennio Tardini Stadium, home of the Parma Football Club, hosts soccer matches and other high-level sporting events that draw large crowds throughout the year. In order to maintain a high level of security for the spectators and workers who enter its gates, the stadium requires a comprehensive video surveillance system. Recently the existing surveillance system was expanded to include Axis HDTV network cameras. A hybrid solution featuring both IP cameras and analog cameras connected to video encoders was already in place, but the system needed an upgrade to ensure total coverage.

Now, the stadium surveillance solution effectively monitors every sensitive area throughout the facility, including turnstiles, exits, corridors, emergency exits, entrances, and of course the stands and bleachers. The latest batch of cameras patrolling Tardini Stadium includes sixteen Axis Q1755 HDTV IP cameras and one Axis 233D outdoor PTZ dome camera.

With high-definition resolution and a powerful 5-50mm varifocal zoom lens, the Axis Q1755 is a great choice for stadium surveillance. The Q1755's high resolution is especially important because some of the cameras are positioned at distances of up to 130 meters from the areas they cover. Others are as close as 3 meters away. The Axis Q1755 is flexible enough to handle both solutions. It offers wide-angle views for the areas that are closer, while from long distances it can maintain high image quality when you have to zero in on details.

The Axis 233D network dome camera provides fast and accurate pan/tilt/zoom control, allowing operators to follow moving objects from far away, and quickly zoom in on suspicious activity.

The stadium surveillance solution is managed using Axis Camera Station software on a dedicated server. Video recordings are stored for seven days.
