The vast majority of conferences and sporting events last only a few hours to a few days. As a result, it makes little economic sense for event organizers to install permanent and pricey security systems. Golf San Antonio, a local charity that runs that PGA Tour's annual Valero Texas Open, found an innovative and affordable way to boost its security team. It brought in NAVCO, a security systems integrator, which set up Axis' Video Hosting System and eight cameras to stream video to a cloud-based storage facility. During the event, staffers monitored the video feeds to keep tabs on ticket gates, refreshment areas, parking lots, and other areas.
