Controlling Crowds – Sporting events attract very passionate fans and emotions can get heated quickly during a sporting event. Security cameras can help monitor, concessions, hallways, and stands for disturbances and fights amongst the masses.
Ease of installation – Today’s digital video surveillance cameras can be installed easily. Sporting complexes can be outfitted with IP cameras that communicate through an IP network. Since networks are easily scalable you can add cameras as you see fit no matter where you need the cameras installed.
Coming and Going – Most sporting events have very large crowds that form when entering and exiting the facility. This can cause many issues and disturbances. CCTV cameras can monitor those high traffic areas making sure that patrons have a safe and smooth passage.
Player Protection – Unfortunately players are also at risk during sporting events. Flying objects, streaking fans, and physical attacks are known to have occurred on the playing field. This activity can be monitored and you can quickly alert security staff directly to the scene before a situation gets out of hand.
Terrorism Prevention – With such large amounts of people sporting events are unfortunately viewed by many as potential targets for terrorism. Video Surveillance can help to recognize any potential terrorists. The Superbowl, as an example, is known for implementing and using video analytics such as facial recognition monitor crowds for known felons.
Remote Viewing – Network video recorders allow sporting events to view all their cameras and video streams on the local network and over the internet. Security personnel can monitor live video footage and even control cameras remotely from tablets, phones and any computer with Internet access.
