SAN DIEGO—Wireless video surveillance provider MicroPower Technologies, based here, announced July 8 that its solar, wireless surveillance system has achieved a positive evaluation by the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4).

NCS4 officials evaluate a variety of solutions to determine how specific technologies can help solve security issues, such as crowd monitoring, tailgating issues and event management, in and around facilities that host spectator sports.

The MicroPower solar, wireless surveillance platform demonstrates value in this market because it can be easily and rapidly redeployed as areas of interest change, even in environments with limited power and network infrastructure, according to the company. Additionally, the solution drives collaboration between law enforcement and first responders due to its open, IP-based architecture and integration with other network-enabled devices.

Evaluation of MicroPower’s surveillance platform in the NCS4 testing laboratory provides users assurance that the system is validated and delivers efficient configuration and deployment. The outdoor surveillance solution tested positively in all aspects of the evaluation process, including reliability, recording, frame rate, sustainability and weather, proving that the outdoor surveillance system can help to solve security challenges in arena and stadium environments and surroundings.

Located at The University of Southern Mississippi, NCS4 supports the advancement of sports safety and security through training, professional development, academic programs and research. It also provides a living laboratory and learning environment where security solutions can be evaluated, demonstrated and showcased through the NCS4 National Sports Security Laboratory.
