9 Security Technologies For Super Bowl And Beyond
February 03, 2012 08:35 AM From the Super Bowl to the World Cup, sports fans are being watched in new ways. Consider these technologies changing sports security.
Little League World Series
The annual Little League International World Series draws more than 300,000 baseball fans to South Williamsport, Penn., a town of just 6,000 people. How does a tiny community provide security at such a large event? It reaches out to a powerful team of volunteers--including Axis Communications, security systems integrator Lenel Systems International, the FBI, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons--to keep the players and spectators safe.
In 2010, for instance, Axis provided more than two dozen surveillance cameras, which were installed in various locations around the stadiums and dormitories. Lenel supplied the video management system, allowing security staff to look for suspicious vehicles, packages, and people; verify badge IDs; and so on. Axis' HD cameras with pan, tilt, and zoom features help with crowd control, as well.
