Stadiums, auditoriums, government facilities and utilities can all pose different potential challenges for security and telecommunications.
Department of Public Safety officials at the University of Michigan needed to increase security while expanding the third largest stadium in the world. They sought a solution they could use for multiple purposes and particularly for crowd-flow monitoring and surveillance during stadium construction. As sworn police officers, DPS personnel understood the challenges of trying to solve a case with poor quality video.
By integrating 31 Pixel Video Fusion tm cameras into the existing building structure and the communications network in the headquarters building, DPS could monitor all entry and exit points, as well as the main parking concourse areas. Achieving the same solution with 4cif cameras would have required more than 220 cameras. The entire system rode on the same network as other game day media participants and a small amount of bandwidth.
