Panasonic faces off security challenges for ice hockey venue

Bracknell, Berkshire (UK) and Langnau, Switzerland

Top Swiss ice hockey club SCL Tigers have put the freeze on disruption at matches thanks to the implementation of Panasonic's 4K dome camera, the WV-SFV781L, which has been installed to monitor spectator stands at the Ilfishalle stadium in Langnau. With 6x optical zoom and true 4K, the club is able to monitor the entire length of each stand using just two cameras.

Alongside the 4K technology SCL Tigers also opted for WV-SW598A full HD fixed dome cameras outside the stadium and in areas away from the spectator stands. Operators benefit from a 30x optical zoom, PTZ functionality and a 128x dynamic range to capture clear evidence day and night.

The Tigers play in the National League A, the top division in Switzerland. Strict regulations regarding the safety of spectators as well as the security of stadiums meant it was crucial the club had a camera setup that would be dependable and compliant.

“The stadium operators needed to be able to review the video material of the stands and the areas outside the stadium within hours of an incident taking place,” said CEO of SCL Tigers, Peter Müller.

“The Panasonic brand is well known for its reliability and high-quality products. Value for money was another key aspect, and Panasonic provides exactly what we were looking for. For us, it’s important that we invest capital in the best way possible and get the most out of it.”
