Football matches are one of the most crowded community events. Tens of thousands of people in one place at any time creates a high risk security area. The prevention of violent incidents and fast reaction is the key to ensuring the safety of the spectators, staff and footballers. The LOGIPIX system has been designed specifically with this in mind.
Several individual 15 or 20 Megapixel LOGIPIX cameras cover the stadium . Their pictures are stitched together to create a panoramic view. Having large panoramic images means the security team can best assess any potential threats, and should any escalate quickly, they can best manage the situation. Owing to the several individual cameras, the system is easily restructured by the LOGIPIX team in case of any future developments. There are no areas unmonitored, and thanks to the high quality images, face recognition is possible.
Additional LOGIPIX Full HD PTZ cameras are measured together with the panoramic system and continuously scan the various sectors of the stadium. Their pan tilt and zoom functions can be controlled interactively on the stitched panoramic images by selecting the target area. More visual information of an incident means more effective action to manage the situation occurring.
It has been noted that there are certain areas more prone to outbreaks of violence. These potential threat areas can be marked and saved as PTZ positions, with a specific function that helps accelerate the navigation between these zones.
Building a system with 15 Megapixel cameras and beyond means a fewer devices are sufficient to cover entire stadiums with high resolution images wherein every faces are recognizable. As NVRs handle networking tasks, there is no need for complex IT network. This way system installation and maintenance costs can be drastically reduced and money can be saved even on the hardware part of the system.
