Axis network cameras provide museum surveillance at the Art Institute of Chicago

Published by Dan on October 1, 2008 2:48 PM

The Art Institute of Chicago is now using Axis IP cameras to monitor close to 1 million square feet of museum space. The Axis network cameras have been installed to ensure the safety of visitors and museum workers, and also to protect the Institute's massive collection of irreplaceable artwork. Megapixel cameras with low-light capabilities have been situated strategically throughout the facility. The museum surveillance system uses a mix of Axis cameras, including the Axis 225FD, Axis 223M, Axis 233D, and Axis 209MFD-R.

Security personnel are able to monitor the cameras remotely and can immediately communicate with museum officers closest to any potential disturbances. They can also zero in on specific works of art. Obviously aesthetics are important to a museum, and in the case of the Art Institute of Chicago, it was important that the system maintained security without being obtrusive. Curators worked with the museum's IT staff to position both visible and hidden IP cameras throughout the buildings so they wouldn't stand out as eye sores.

Previously, the Art Institute used an analog CCTV system. By switching to Axis IP cameras, the museum now has a scalable system that provides greater coverage, increased storage, and allows users to monitor the cameras from multiple review points on the network.
