RADWIN Secures Copa América, South America’s Biggest Football Event
Virginia Reginato, Mayor, Municipality de Viña del Mar: “RADWIN’s wireless solutions ensured that fans and families could safely enjoy the games at Sausalito Stadium”
RADWIN announced that it helped secure the Copa América football games which took place in Chile between June 11 and July 4. Lionel Messi, Alexis Sanchez and Neymar were just some of the players that competed in the continent’s biggest football event. As part of tightened security measures in the stadiums, RADWIN 2000 Point-to-Point (PtP) equipment was installed in the Sausalito Stadium in Viña del Mar, connecting high resolution video cameras to the control center. Global Links was the system integrator of the project, and turnkey solution provider Transworld was in charge of project distribution.
Jose Roa, head of the Chilean government’s ’Safe Stadium Plan’, stated that the plan’s aim was to: “create a framework so the football community can enjoy a safe party, and exclude from the stadiums those who have set themselves apart from the football community.” Delivering high quality, high resolution video in real time, RADWIN 2000 PtP armed security personnel in the control center with actionable surveillance information and situational awareness that helped ensure the safety of the competing teams and the tens of thousands of attendees who turned up to the games.
Virginia Reginato, Mayor, Municipality de Viña del Mar: “RADWIN’s wireless solutions helped guarantee that fans and families could safely enjoy the games at the Sausalito Stadium. The carrier-grade radios delivered video 24×7 with excellent image quality, empowering security personnel to detect crime, vandalism and other offenses at the sporting venue and address these instances on the spot.”
Cristian Sanguinetti, Project Manager, Global Links: “RADWIN 2000 PtP radios were the best fit for this project. Installation was quick and easy, and RADWIN’s advanced radio features such as Spectrum Viewer and Multi-Band helped us ensure that we’re working in a clean spectrum with zero interference, which is crucial for guaranteeing uninterrupted video transmission.”
Uri Ofri, RADWIN GM CALA: “RADWIN is extremely proud to have been chosen to secure Copa América, which attests to the fact that our radios fit the requirements of the world’s top ranking events which draw huge crowds and where safety is a topmost priority.”
