Caught on camera ... and DVR

September 2005 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

As the world reflects on the latest terrorist attacks in the UK, most people are astounded at the speed in which the perpetrators were identified and arrested. The modern technology that provided video pictures of train and bus passengers as well as passers-by in the street were a major key element in the crime detection process. In the case of live events, obviously efficient weapon detection units installed at entrances to stadia and arenas is essential. An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. It is however essential that police are able to get the information they need to find the offenders should an incident occur.

Although terrorism is at the forefront of everyone's mind, traditional problems, which also include pickpocket gangs and violence, are more likely to be the problem. In an environment such as competitive international soccer, crowd violence has become commonplace in many countries. Some countries even fence in sections of the grandstands to protect both players and other supporters.

Video Domain developed the MemoCam range for just such applications. Units are available that can snap up to 100 000 individual pictures in a miniature unit that contains the built-in DVR and camera. The unit can be set up to take an individual picture of each and every person entering the stadium or event as they pass through the weapon detection units. This unobtrusive system can be set up to group three walkthrough units together, photographing those people arriving together as well as those walking in just behind them in the line.
