Rotterdam Police Use Megapixel Technology For Football Match Security

Secura Systems : 28 July, 2010  (Application Story)
Crime prevention was a primary goal for police in Rotterdam during high profile football matches, resulting in the use of SentryScope megapixel technology cameras supplied by Secura Systems
Security and safety inside and around the football stadium is often talked about not only during World Cup or European Championships but surely during national soccer matches there's a substantial need for safety on short notice.

Secura Systems and the Police of Rotterdam-Rijnmond together have successfully operated two projects for the highly explosive finals between Feyenoord Rotterdam and Ajax Amsterdam. Wireless equipment from Wavesight as well as the SentryScope 21 MegaPixel camera has been used.

The Police of Rotterdam decided to go with Secura Systems due to the immediate availability and the unique technology used. 'Secura Systems worked straightforward and very quickly. They did a great job. It is quite unusual that within two days only a company can install and operate such a complex system. There were more than 10km of wireless connections throughout the city with a constant bandwidth of approximately 45 Mbps. This combined with the unrivalled technology of the SentryScope 21 MegaPixel cameras we were able to observe the whole scenery in front of the stadium and the city hall at all times with only two cameras. We're talking about 35,000 m² each or to stick to soccer, approximately 5 times the size of a football field.' notes Cor van Paridon, who was in charge of the project on behalf of the Police Rotterdam-Rijnmond.

'To accept challenges and to master them is the base of our daily work. It's great fun to combine different products for projects such as this to generate an efficient solution. The co-operation with the responsible people from the police was excellent and highly professional.', stated Paul André de Jong, managing director of Secura Systems GmbH.

The Police of Rotterdam-Rijnmond leads if it comes to employing new technologies. More than 500 cameras are deployed around in the city and are analysed in the central monitoring stations. From here the police can also access more than 3,000 cameras installed in public transport. A new feature used during the game Feyenoord vs. Ajax was a lip-reading device to see instantly if people were chanting anti-Semitic paroles or other banned texts. Furthermore all field personnel were provided with live images to their PDAs to quickly pick up troublemakers.
