Genetec was honored with the fourth annual NCS4 Golden Eagle Award at the 2016 National Sports Safety and Security Conference and Exhibition, held during the week of July 10 in Phoenix, Ariz. Genetec won for its security solution at BB&T Ballpark located in Charlotte, N.C.

Before construction workers broke ground on BB&T Ballpark, the park’s management contacted security consultant Rick Sousa, president of Vertex Technology Consultants, to detail the specifications for the new security system. The stadium’s aim was to promote an open and airy feel where guests could move freely throughout the stadium, while keeping an eye on strategic locations and limiting access to more sensitive areas. After the project went out to bid, systems integrator Security101 delivered the winning proposal for Genetec Security Center. The unified security platform unifies Omnicast IP video surveillance, Synergis access control and AutoVu automatic license plate recognition systems, with other third-party systems and plug-ins.
