MicroPower Technologies Achieves NCS4 Seal of Approval
Lab-testing process ensures the reliability and benefits of the MicroPower system in spectator sports facilities
SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MicroPower Technologies Inc., an award-winning provider of surveillance solutions optimized for rapid, cost-effective deployment, announced today that its solar, wireless surveillance system has achieved a positive evaluation by the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4).
“Evaluation by NCS4 assures stadiums and arenas of the security, scalability and reliability of the MicroPower solution. Moreover, because the system combines wireless and solar technologies, and is mobile, users can enjoy significant cost and infrastructure savings as the need for cabling and therefore, trenching, is eliminated”
NCS4 officials evaluate a variety of solutions to determine how specific technologies can help solve security issues, such as crowd monitoring, tailgating issues and event management, in and around facilities that host spectator sports. The MicroPower solar, wireless surveillance platform demonstrates value in this market because it can be easily and rapidly redeployed as areas of interest change, even in environments with limited power and network infrastructure. Additionally, the solution drives collaboration between law enforcement and first responders due to its open, IP-based architecture and integration with other network-enabled devices.
NCS4 testing follows a proven framework to evaluate security technologies systematically to ensure products meet or exceed expectations in the dynamic spectator sports environment. Evaluation of MicroPower’s surveillance platform in the NCS4 testing laboratory provides users assurance that the system is validated and delivers efficient configuration and deployment. The outdoor surveillance solution tested positively in all aspects of the evaluation process, including reliability, recording, frame rate, sustainability and weather, proving that the outdoor surveillance system can help to solve security challenges in arena and stadium environments and surroundings.
Located at The University of Southern Mississippi, NCS4 supports the advancement of sports safety and security through training, professional development, academic programs and research. It also provides a living laboratory and learning environment where security solutions can be evaluated, demonstrated and showcased through the NCS4 National Sports Security Laboratory.
"The MicroPower surveillance platform has undergone a series of stringent testing processes, as well as technology evaluation in the NCS4 laboratory. This process validates the use of the solution in the stadium environments,” said Steve Miller, Ph.D., Associate Director, Training and Business Development, NCS4. “Users in this market who choose to integrate MicroPower solutions as part of their security infrastructure can do so with the confidence that the technology meets our validation criteria and helps mitigate the security risks associated with today’s sporting events.”
MicroPower Technologies delivers reliable and cost-effective wireless video surveillance solutions that create superior value for customers by reducing deployment and infrastructure costs. Its wireless video security solution does not require cabling for power or data transmission. This unique approach removes the restrictions found with traditional cameras and allows users to place cameras at the point of highest risk without the added the complexity of trenching, or pulling for data or power cables.
"Evaluation by NCS4 assures stadiums and arenas of the security, scalability and reliability of the MicroPower solution. Moreover, because the system combines wireless and solar technologies, and is mobile, users can enjoy significant cost and infrastructure savings as the need for cabling and therefore, trenching, is eliminated,” said Dave Tynan, Vice President of Global Marketing and Sales, MicroPower Technologies.
