Before the 2019-20 season,\u00a0Ipswich Town Football Club\u00a0was faced with an ultimatum: improve their Portman Road home\u2019s CCTV for match day safety, or the ground might not pass muster to play in League One, England\u2019s third tier.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe Chelmsford-based security and surveillance installation company\u00a0ClearView\u00a0has maintained the club\u2019s CCTV for the past decade. Club and company agreed that the CCTV system had become outdated and was in need of an overhaul. The ability to increase recording capacity, as well as allowing for recording of higher quality and higher resolutions images, was required. ClearView gave Ipswich upgrade options, but a lack of funds meant these had to be put on hold. That pre-season ultimatum meant that an updated CCTV system was a priority, but the stadium would present the installer with difficulties.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nPaul Main, Strategy Director at ClearView, said: \u201cPortman Road has four large stands, with the existing CCTV system utilising analogue coaxial cables that ran over the roofs of those stands. The system we wanted to deliver Ipswich Town was based around the 8MP IP PTZ cameras from Hikvision. This was because the club needed the ability to deliver high resolution, evidence-quality images for crowd monitoring and safety purposes. With that in mind, we had to devise a solution to ensure those IP images could be transmitted over long-distance coax cable.\u201d\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nTo read more on ClearView's solution for Ipswich Town Football Club, please see the full article on Professional Security Magazine Online. \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAlternatively if you are interested in our CCTV systems, please call\u00a001245 214104\u00a0now or email\firstname.lastname@example.org.
