Everton enhances security with Dallmeier

Everton FC's Goodison Park  has modernised its video security system with the patented multifocal sensor system Panomera from Dallmeier

 


Q&A with stadium manager Alan Bowen.

What were the main reasons for choosing Dallmeier?
We first met Dallmeier at a FSOA (Football Safety Officers Association) conference where they were exhibiting with their new Panomera multifocal sensor system. We invited Dallmeier to come along to Goodison Park to do a live match trial with their system. We also invited four other manufactures during our selection process, who claimed they could provide a CCTV solution to meet our requirements for separate live match trials.

Throughout the selection process, Dallmeier time and again demonstrated the best quality images, live and recorded, be they in a normal daylight scenario, or in our second live trial application, by observing the rear of the seating areas through our low level floodlighting.

What does the video surveillance solution comprise?
The Panomera solution includes several multifocal sensor systems, which provide a quality up to 85 megapixels each at a frame rate of 12 images per second.

The images can be streamed to multiple operators enabling them to work independently with detailed 'spot' views. The whole scene is being recorded irrelevant of where the operators are looking, enabling retrospective playback into any area after an event. Recorded footage can be viewed instantly and simultaneously to live views on match days or reviewed subsequent to the event.

In addition to the Panomera, the solution includes high definition Dallmeier PTZ cameras located in strategic positions around the ground to provide live images in exceptional quality. There are also fixed HD dome cameras located in licensing areas within the ground.

What do you expect from the new surveillance system?
We are very confident that the complete solution inclusive of the Panomera multifocal sensor system is the best we could find in the market at this time. The product gives us the maximum opportunity to identify those committing offences inside the stadium and will greatly assist in reducing crime and anti-social behaviour inside Goodison Park.
