Case Studies

Fanzone in 4k

by Mark Rowe

A case study of CCTV at the Fanzone at Newcastle’s Science Central, which has a capacity of 10,000. Newcastle City Council commissioned Universal Systems Solutions, a North East-based installer, to install a Sony ultra-HD 4K camera.

According to the makers, 4K cameras provide better, higher quality coverage with fewer cameras. The installation at the Fanzone is part of an ongoing working relationship between Universal and the city council. Universal also provided two Rapid Deployment wireless CCTV cameras.

Kevin Bruce, Director of Universal Systems Solutions, pictured right, said: “We are thrilled to have negotiated the first ever installation of Sony 4K cameras as part of our ongoing work with Newcastle City Council. The state-of-the-art technology we are using to cover the site will help in ensuring that public safety is of the highest levels during busy periods.”

Paul Angus, Community Safety Officer at Newcastle City Council, pictured left, said: “It’s great to have Universal Systems Solutions as a North East based company providing support and safety to the Rugby World Cup Fanzone at such a busy time. We believe this latest, revolutionary technology, provided by Sony, will really help to improve safety and everyone’s overall experience of the Fanzone and are excited to be the first organisation to utilise it.”

Universal Systems Solutions has been awarded Gold Partner status by Sony Europe; the installer also holds Platinum Partner status with the video management software developer Milestone Systems and are a Silver Partner with Microsoft.
