A fully integrated security system is in place as 16 Little League Baseball teams and hundreds of thousands of fans from around the globe come together Aug. 17-27 in South Williamsport. A priority of Little League Baseball officials is promoting a fun, exciting experience, while also providing the highest level of security.
With more than 120 permanent network cameras in place at Volunteer Stadium and Howard J. Lamade Stadium, Little League Baseball works to add new technologies each year to keep the installation as secure as possible. This year's system advancements include Axis 20-megapixel cameras, thermal imagers, radar perimeter protection, and people-counting video analytics.
Axis Communications is supporting the Little League Baseball World Series for its eighth consecutive year and continues to build on the security program it helped establish during previous events.
New technologies deployed this year include the AXIS Q1659 Network Camera, which is the first to combine professional-caliber photographic imaging technologies from Canon to deliver ultra-high image quality for fixed, wide-area surveillance and detail, even in the most challenging lighting conditions. The brand-new AXIS D2050-VE Network Radar Detector is deployed as an outdoor motion detector for accurate and reliable perimeter protection, day and night, to minimize potential false alarms. The new AXIS People Counter video analytics solution helps the Little League gain operational insights.
