Vicon on the ball at Southampton

September 2002 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

A wide range of dome cameras, multiplexers and monitors from Vicon Industries have been installed at Southampton Football Club's £32 million 32 000-seater Friends Provident St Mary's Stadium.

South West Communications carried out the installation. The new stadium has allowed the Saints to achieve gates of around 30 000 so boosting the club's income and sustaining them in the Premiership.

Vicon's Surveyor dome cameras are monitoring the concourse area at the stadium. The design features a drive mechanism that can be operated independently from the housing, thereby allowing installers an easy way to test functionality prior to permanent mounting. Extensive menu-based programming configures each unit to individual requirements. The units have self-learn tours which allow for in-sequence editing and reverse touring.

The control room at St Mary's Stadium features a Vicon V1344 high-density programmable control and matrix switching system from the Nova series. At Southampton the matrix is accommodating 32 camera inputs and eight monitor outputs but the unit has a 128 input by 24 output maximum capacity.
