Avigilon partners with G4S to secure the Miami Dolphins’ stadium
Avigilon Corporation has announced its high definition surveillance solutions have been selected to protect Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla., home to the Miami Dolphins, University of Miami football team, Capital One Orange Bowl, Super Bowl LIV and the 100th anniversary of the NFL, international soccer and a host of other big events.
G4S says it has completed phase one, installing the Avigilon Control Center (ACC) software and 229 Avigilon surveillance cameras at the 65,000-seat Hard Rock Stadium and the Baptist Health Training Facility at Nova Southeastern University. Phase two of the installation will include 600 additional Avigilon cameras, according to Avigilon.
“Avigilon and G4S have successfully created a state-of-the-art security solution,” says Miami Dolphins senior vice-president of operations Todd Boyan. “Avigilon security solutions enable us to monitor the crowds and gives us the ability to identify and respond to potential security issues in a proactive manner.”
Using its HD Pro cameras, Avigilon says the entire seating area of a venue can be covered while providing enough image detail to zoom in and get an image of any visible individual or event in question.
“G4S has been working with the Dolphins’ security and IT functions to deploy a comprehensive and integrated security solution that we believe will become a model for how security is delivered and managed at other major sporting and events venues,” said John Kenning, regional CEO, North America at G4S. “Teaming with Avigilon was the right choice as part of this security solution due to their experience securing high-profile stadiums around the globe, quality products and focus on customer service.”
