Avigilon announced that the SLOVNAFT ARENA in Bratislava, deployed the Avigilon high-definition to ensure the safest and most enjoyable experience for participants and spectators at the 2011 International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) World Championship and at all future events. Avigilon was selected for its extreme image clarity, advanced search and playback functionality, and unfaltering reliability.
SLOVNAFT ARENA security personnel manage the Avigilon high-definition surveillance solution using the Avigilon Control Center network video management software (NVMS) with High-Definition Stream Management (HDSM) technology. The Arena has 99 Avigilon high-definition 3 MP cameras to monitor all entrances and exits, arena aisles, parking garage, and open spaces both day and night. Twelve Avigilon high-definition 11 MP cameras provide complete coverage of the seating bowl. SLOVNAFT ARENA also installed an Avigilon analog video encoder to integrate a Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) camera in the seating bowl into the Avigilon high-definition surveillance system. SLOVNAFT ARENA stores seven days of continuous surveillance video on an Avigilon Network Video Recorder (NVR) and monitors the surveillance system live 24/7.
SLOVNAFT ARENA can monitor its entire 10,000-seat seating bowl with just 12 Avigilon high-definition 11 MP cameras, lowering its infrastructure investment, and can achieve complete facial and license plate recognition using the Avigilon 3 MP cameras in the parking garage for fast and accurate identification. Security personnel leverage Avigilon's digital zooming capabilities and image quality to identify and remove rowdy guests before they become a serious threat to public safety and can successfully share surveillance video with local police leading to conviction.
