Football Hooligan Banned From Matches On Basis Of Surveillance Images

IQinVision : 22 July, 2010  (Application Story)
IQeye HD camera images of a football hooligan engaged in criminal damage at a Bratislava match identified from surveillance footage and banned from attending future games
Football Hooligan Banned From Matches On Basis Of Surveillance Images
Violence at football (soccer) matches is a well-known problem and affects soccer authorities and fans all over the world. In our continuing series showcasing IQinVision technology assisting end users to "Catch the Bad Guy", here's our latest successful incident.

At Pasienky Stadium in Bratislava, Slovakia, Canex has installed (17) IQeye HD MegaPixel cameras in a novel set-up to provide panoramic views of all the seating areas around the stadium.

During a match between the home side Slovan Bratislava and Spartak Trnava, a fan expressed his excitement by lighting a seat on fire with a smoke bomb. In the photo, you can see a nearly-full section of the stadium enjoying the game while the man with a gray sweatshirt lights his smoke bomb.

On the basis of the IQeye images, the perpetrator was identified in less than two seconds by stadium personnel and then apprehended by the police. This fan will have to express his future excitement from the couch in front of his television—he's been banned from attending future Slovan Bratislava football matches.
