Axis camera system at the Spartak Myjava Stadium

Axis camera system at the Spartak Myjava Stadium
Myjava features a large sports center with a playing field, which is used for the preparation of all the sportsmen in the region. As per the law, every first league stadium must operate a permanent specified camera system, which continuously monitors the individual visitor sections, stadium access gates and entrances, and all the public areas inside the stadium. A camera system had to be built at the stadium in accordance with the valid legal regulations of the Slovak Republic.

The IP camera choice was clear as the specified laws and regulations require the use of IP cameras with the emphasis on their future applications at sports facilities, especially at entrances (face biometrics, etc.). In accordance with the valid legislation, the investor’s initial specification required a system with its minimum resolution of 100 pixels per meter; however, to meet the minimum infrastructure requirements per the UEFA criteria, it was eventually changed to the minimum resolution of 180 pixels per meter.

Out of the total number of 32 stadium cameras installed from Axis Communications, nineteen AXIS P1357 Network Cameras permanently record visitors, and eight AXIS P1428-E units cover the stadium’s surrounding areas and its individual entrances. Two AXIS Q6115-E Network Cameras are primarily designed to search for a problematic visitor in a crowd. These cameras provide resolution exceeding 500 px/m even at the most distant location of the stadium.

One AXIS P3364-VE generates data for the club’s website as it features an online stream based on the ACAP application of Netrex. Two additional AXIS V5915 Network Cameras were then installed. They primarily follow the game and they are directly connected to a video cutting room through SDI. The whole solution is designed for very simple operation without any need for complicated training.

The whole system is exclusively based on Axis IP cameras. The stadium features 32 installed units of these cameras. The client’s original goal was to “meet its legal obligation and secure its stadium premises”; however, it currently uses the camera system to “entertain” its visitors as well. The cameras are connected through a software video cutting room, and when they are not monitoring visitors, they generate video data for “replayed” views of the game displayed on a large screen. One camera also generates data for the club’s website. It features a live online stream based on the ACAP CamStreamer application of Netrex.
