Case Study: Brighton and Hove Albion FC
Brighton and Hove Albion FC are building a new stadium at Falmer. The Community Stadium will provide a new home and facilities for 'The Seagulls'.
What we did
The club has a loyal and devoted fanbase, who have a very keen interest in the work-in-progress. So the ability to see high quality imagery on a live website, throughout the build, was a must, as well as the reliable, above-HD filming for archive, print and web publication. After the camera had been in place for nine months, action switched from outside to inside the stadium.
The new location inside the stadium, to watch among other things the iconic arch placement, was far from any power sources, and under a roof canopy. We designed and built a methanol fuel cell system to power the camera. This low-maintenance solution only needs refuelling every 100 days.
The camera system is a firm favourite with the fans, and has been running on a fuel cell for four months. View the camera here.
