Candlestick Park, home of the San Francisco 49ers, is one of the oldest NFL stadiums. Until recently, its analog video surveillance system was looking nearly as outdated. Candlestick management last year brought in systems integrator IPVision and other security firms to install video encoders throughout the park. The new system digitizes existing analog cameras and gives them many more features, such as server-based storage from Hitachi Data Systems, instead of outdated VCR/DVR technology.

Featuring live multi-camera replays made possible by video management software from OnSSI, and improved video intelligence, the new system will help stadium security document troublesome incidents, such as the violence that marred a 2011 preseason game between the 49ers and the Oakland Raiders.
