Iconic Metlife Stadium Selects Arecont Vision

Press release date: April 24, 2014

Los Angeles, CA (USA) — Metlife Stadium's security management team have selected Arecont Vision technology to provide comprehensive, undisrupted video coverage throughout every part of its venue.

In the spring of 2010, Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ, USA, opened its doors as the first building owned and operated by two iconic NFL franchises, the New York Jets and New York Football Giants. This $1.60 billion groundbreaking project, 100% privately funded and built by both teams, opened four months ahead of schedule and on budget.

Each year, Metlife Stadium hosts 20 NFL games (twice as many as any other NFL Stadium), major concerts and entertainment events, college sporting events, international soccer matches, motor sports, and family shows. Since opening, the Stadium tops the annual charts, being named the Top Grossing Stadium in the World.

Arecont Vision megapixel cameras have been deployed to ensure wide area coverage with extreme detail and the ability to electronically zoom into live and recorded footage without affecting wide area surveillance. The new video surveillance solution was built around Arecont Vision's megapixel imaging technology to ensure that the highest levels of security and surveillance are maintained at the facility without impeding the fan experience.

"We are pleased that our innovative megapixel imaging solutions are playing a key role in the deployment of this advanced video surveillance solution," said Scott Schafer, Executive Vice President, Arecont Vision. "The Arecont Vision megapixel cameras installed at Metlife Stadium provide coverage of the stadium bowl, gates and plaza areas, with excellent cost-efficiency by using far fewer cameras versus legacy IP VGA or analogue cameras. Because the number of cameras is reduced, the system can be more effectively managed. The key attributes to a solution like this are excellent image quality to identify activity and people, frame rates to see the action, day/night video capabilities, reduced network and storage expense via H.264 compression and Power over Ethernet (PoE) to reduce power cabling costs."

The new video surveillance system installed at MetLife Stadium was designed by Corporate Security Services, Inc. located in Edison, New Jersey. The Arecont Vision megapixel cameras are managed using Genetec Security Center, a unified video management system (VMS), which is controlled from a centralised security command centre in Metlife Stadium.

The Arecont Vision megapixel cameras that have been deployed at Metlife Stadium including Megavideo compact 10-megapixel (MP) cameras located inside the bowl to monitor exterior seating areas, Surroundvideo panoramic 8MP cameras to provide 180 degree coverage of all entrances and Megadome 2 3MP cameras with remote focus, remote zoom and wide dynamic range (WDR) located in the stadium's security entrance areas.

Arecont Vision Megavideo Compact Series box cameras are available in 1.3MP to 10MP resolutions with features that include dual H.264/MJPEG encoding, fast frame rates, privacy masking, pixel binning to increase light sensitivity in 3MP, 5MP and 10MP models, extended motion detection grid, flexible cropping and PoE.
