High frame rate Axis network cameras with Milestone VMS will be mounted above the ice to capture high speed events during the 2017 Canada East Short Track Speed Skating Championships on March 25 and 26
This Speed Skating Canada event is expected to host hundreds of people at the Bob MacQuarrie Recreation Complex, as families and fans will watch exciting and thrilling racing by the top youth speed skaters in eastern Canada. The most talented speed skaters from the eastern provinces of Canada will gather for this event to participate in various distance events and races. Due to the high speeds of skaters competing, referees will require camera views at the entrance and exits of corners of the track to determine penalties.
The cameras will be streaming back through Milestone XProtect Essential video management software, which will allow officials to easily review video on their smartphones. The software comes with three different user interfaces including the Milestone Mobile client which was especially of interest to the speed skating organization.
“It is great to collaborate with Canada East Short Track Speed Skating Championships and Milestone on this project,” said Keith D’sa, National Sales Manager, Canada, Axis Communications, Inc. “The cameras that are being utilized on this project speak to our strong product portfolio and most importantly, will have a positive impact on the outcome of this competition.”
