PHOENIX – January 21, 2015 – Climatec, LLC, a Phoenix-based building technology company, is pleased to announce the completed installation of a new security solution at the University of Phoenix Stadium in preparation for the 2015 Pro Bowl and Super Bowl XLIX events.
Climatec worked closely with Guidepost Solutions, a security and technology consulting firm, and the stadium operations team to successfully engineer and deploy a complete video solution. Using ultra high definition camera technology, manufactured by Avigilon Corporation, the stadium’s operational and security staff now have complete situational awareness of activity occurring inside the stadium, covering the entire 63,400-seat facility and surrounding parking lot areas.
“University of Phoenix Stadium has a long standing relationship with Climatec and we were looking to upgrade to a new video surveillance system that would provide high definition image quality with a host of system functions. We fully appreciated Climatec’s unique approach to the design, as they understood what the stadium needed. Climatec did not present an out of the box mediocre solution, but a complete customized deployment for our own application,” said Joe Coomer, director of security and services for Global Spectrum at the University of Phoenix Stadium.
Known for its unique design, engineering and technology, the University of Phoenix Stadium is unlike any other stadium in the country. With its retractable roof and field, this multi-functional facility is home to NFL’s Arizona Cardinals and the annual VIZIO Fiesta Bowl.
The new system permits stadium staff to operate all camera equipment and search through digital footage rapidly. Andy McQueen, head of the security division at Climatec said, “Our goals were to provide a system that would both meet the budget expectations and provide high-quality, reliable digital video. We wanted to be sure the stadium staff had an application that would give them a state-of-the-art system but still provide intuitive command and control. Our team is dedicated to providing the right technology, to improve all public safety and well-being of the people at the stadium.”
