Corporate Security Services secures MetLife
MONTREAL—Genetec, a leading provider of unified IP security solutions, announced April 15 that MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., home of the New York Giants and the New York Jets, has installed the Genetec Security Center system in its 82,500-seat stadium.
MetLife Stadium is one of the largest outdoor sports and entertainment venues in the US, and requires a comprehensive and intricate security network. MetLife Stadium chose Corporate Security Services as its security integrator. Corporate Security Services recommended Genetec Security Center because it has been successfully installed in other major sports and entertainment venues around the world, and has the power and capabilities to monitor all areas of the facility for improved crowd control and video archiving to facilitate after-the-fact investigations.
Because of MetLife Stadium’s interest in undisrupted video coverage throughout every part of its venue, the integrator installed hundreds of cameras, many of which were high-resolution Arecont Vision megapixel and panoramic cameras, along with specially placed PTZ cameras, all connected to Genetec Plan Manager, an interactive mapping module in Genetec Security Center that gives an overhead-map view to accurately visualize any part of a facility at the click of a button.
The Federation feature in Genetec Security Center allows the MetLife Stadium security team to immediately route live surveillance feeds to local and federal authorities for instant viewing and access in case of emergency.
The video archive feature in the Genetec Security Center system captures and stores video feeds for multiple years. Archived video can be accessed and retrieved down to the precise time code and date within minutes in case of an investigation.
Genetec Security Center is a unified security platform that blends Omnicast video managed surveillance (VMS), Synergis access control and AutoVu license plate recognition (LPR) systems, presenting information to end users. Genetec Security Center also supports a large number of third-party systems, including intrusion panels, asset and building management systems.
