|VIVOTEK’s SD8363E monitors movement both inside and outside stadiums
VIVOTEK is pleased to announce that its speed dome network camera SD8363E has been deployed to aid the Brazilian military safeguarding the matches at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
The World Cup, an international event held once every four years, is known as one of the most prestigious sporting events in the world. This year, Brazil was endowed as the host of this festival. In order to protect athletes and fans at all of the stadium sites, the Brazil government dispatched one of its military brigades, the Special Operations Command (COPESP), to establish security. COPESP employed its professional intelligent military platform, with VIVOTEK’s state-of-the-art 1080p Full HD speed dome network camera SD8363E integrated, to monitor movement inside and outside stadiums. VIVOTEK’s SD8363E, with several advanced features as exceptional frame rate, extreme weather proofing, IP66- and NEMA 4X-rated housing, WDR Pro technology, and 360°continuous pan and 220° extended tilt range, is especially ideal for monitoring wide open spaces like stadiums.
Claudio Freitas, the Colonel of COPESP, remarked, “The World Cup is an international event. We knew that the entire world would be watching. Thus, the real-time security control is crucial. My COPESP personnel, with the professional intelligent military platform and VIVOTEK’s cameras, did an amazing job ensuring that the venues were a safe place to enjoy a football match.”
Steve Ma, Executive VP at VIVOTEK, stated, “Large open venues like football stadiums are potential targets for terrorist attacks. Thus, it is crucial to have real-time security control over the entire event, seamlessly protecting the players and also the audience with an advanced surveillance system. VIVOTEK is honoured that our latest speed dome network camera SD8363E, with high-level reliability and top-notch image quality, supports COPESP to ensure security at the World Cup.”
