Hikvision Security Cameras Help Dutch Football Club with Game Analysis
Hikvision security cameras provided a surveillance solution to monitor training and soccer matches for Dutch football club Ajax at two locations in the Netherlands.
Partnering with Ajax and video analysis expert GameOn, Hikvision’s panoramic 24 MP PanoVu surveillance camera is delivering high resolution footage at the Ajax "Sportcomplex of the Future" and Ajax stadium in Amsterdam to analyze training and game days for improved performance.
“We are amazed by the Hikvision technologies we recently implemented at our training grounds and stadium. The PanoVu camera is opening an entirely new world for us in performance analysis. Being able to capture the full pitch at high resolution is simplifying our analysis process so much. Being able to provide real-time feedback to coaches and players empowers us even more,” said Max Reckers, Ajax’s performance technologist in the Hikvision case study.
Specialized software from GameOn stitched together four PanoVu lenses, dewarping images and providing a full view of the entire pitch. GameOn’s software adds a ‘virtual PTZ’ function which allows the software to zoom in on specific players and track them on the field, according to the case study. A Hikvision NVR allows Ajax to save images and video footage for later viewing.
