Orlando Stadium gets hi-tech parking system March 2009, News
The upgraded Orlando Stadium, which will host matches during the FIFA Confederations Cup soccer tournament this year and serve as a training facility for World Cup teams in 2010, has implemented a new security system for the main gate and VIP parking area.
Tswelopele Solutions, a specialist in the deployment of technology solutions focused on improving the general spectator experience for soccer and other sports fans, contracted Protoclea Advanced Image Engineering, a local image-based security systems developer, to provide a system to secure and control access and egress for vehicles entering the main gate for VIP parking at Orlando Stadium.
The solution is based upon Protoclea’s locally developed SINON automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) system for cost-effective vehicle access/egress and parking security applications.
“SINON is a practical, high accuracy system that has also been well proven in very large applications such as the expansive parking security required by Acsa at O.R. Tambo International Airport,” said Protoclea marketing manager, Bradley Josephs
The SINON Mini is designed for small parking systems with a maximum of six lanes and is ideal for the Orlando Stadium application where four cameras have been installed, two overview CCTV cameras for overall monitoring and two ANPR cameras to record number plates and vehicle type of all incoming and outgoing vehicles.
The camera images are integrated into a database for immediate comparison against authorised and unauthorised vehicle lists at both entry and exit with exceptions automatically alarmed and highlighted for security personnel to check.
