High-tech protection for 1. FC Union Berlin

The latest video surveillance with Axis cameras, for the game and stadium

“The system has already paid off. The number of thefts and unauthorized entries to our premises has significantly decreased. At game time, we have an optimal overview of the action, not just during play, but also as we monitor various groups of fans entering and leaving.” Sebastian Reiter, head of media and construction technology for the An der Alten Försterei stadium.


In the future, the legendary soccer club 1. FC Union Berlin wants to be better equipped for any disruptions, admissions problems, mass panics or evacuations. That is why the club decided on an ultra-modern security system after modernizing their stadium.


Berlin solutions integrator globits designed and installed a video surveillance system with cameras by the market-leading IP video manufacturer Axis Communications and Symphony video management software from Aimetis GmbH. Globits installed 19 modern PTZ dome network cameras and two thermal cameras that scan the stadium and the club’s premises day and night. They offer especially excellent protection during games and as fans enter and exit.


The number of thefts and unauthorized entries to the premises has significantly decreased. The stadium An der Alten Försterei in Berlin’s Köpenick municipal district is now one of the best-protected soccer stadiums in Germany.
