Lenel Systems, Axis Donate Security Solutions for Little League World Series


SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa.—Axis Communications has partnered with Lenel Systems Int’l and contributed more than two dozen thermal, fixed dome and pan/tilt/zoom (p/t/z) network cameras to this year’s Little League World Series in South Williamsport, Pa.

Every August, the Little League Int’l World Series attracts more than 300,000 Little Leaguers, families, fans and international dignitaries to the small town of South Williamsport, Pa., for a two-week tournament to decide the world champion.

For the 12th year, Lenel has donated access control and digital video security solutions for the event. The system includes Axis network cameras deployed around the stadium and dormitory complex where the international athletes live during their two-week stay. Lenel’s video management system (VMS) allows security personnel to control and monitor the network cameras remotely. Furthermore, Lenel IntelligentVideo analytics track objects left behind, detect people approaching secured areas, help locate missing individuals and verify badge holder IDs when they are swiped through access control systems.

“Keeping participants, family and fans safe during the two-week competition requires a massive, coordinated effort involving local, state and federal law enforcement in addition to a contingency security force that patrols the complex during the World Series,” says Jim Ferguson, director of security for Little League Baseball and Softball. “We are especially grateful to Lenel Systems Int’l and Axis Communications for their contributions to the security of our event.”

In addition to p/t/z, fixed and wireless network cameras, Axis has also included several of its AXIS Q1910-E thermal network cameras to protect the stadium and dormitory perimeters at night. AXIS Q1910 uses thermal imaging as part of a total network video solution to detect people, objects and incidents in complete darkness and difficult visual conditions such as smoke, haze, dust and light fog.

“We’re excited to play a continuing role with Lenel Systems Int’l and Little League Baseball to help protect the largest gathering of international youth sports teams in the world,” says Fredrik Nilsson, general manager, Axis Communications. “Whether installed at baseball fields, hospitals, university campuses, schools or other demanding environments, network cameras provide superior image quality and are very easy to deploy, making them perfect for temporary systems.”
