Axis Communications - The Art Institute of Chicago

Art Institute of Chicago is considered one of the best fine arts museums in the entire country. This renowned museum is home to more than 260,000 pieces of artwork, including paintings by several of the recognized masters of Impressionist and American art. While a new modern art wing was being constructed, the Department of Protection Services evaluated the museum’s current analog surveillance system. They decided to upgrade the current system, and concluded that a flexible, state-of-the-art IP-based system would be the best solution.

Solution: The Art Institute of Chicago is considered one of the best fine arts museums in the entire country. This renowned museum is home to more than 260,000 pieces of artwork, including paintings by several of the recognized masters of Impressionist and American art. Every year, more than 1.4 million people visit the Art Institute of Chicago to view the extensive collection of fine art.

 

While a new modern art wing was being constructed, the Department of Protection Services evaluated the museum’s current analog surveillance system. They decided to upgrade the current system, and concluded that a flexible, state-of-the-art IP-based system would be the best solution.

 

As the basis of its new surveillance system, the museum chose several models of Axis network cameras and placed them throughout the museum. The Art Institute of Chicago also deployed Honeywell Digital Video Manager software, a digital closed-circuit television surveillance system.

 

The upgraded surveillance technologies are superior to the museum’s outdated analog system in several ways. Coverage has been expanded, and staff can now monitor any location from multiple viewpoints. In addition, any incidents captured on video can easily be shared. Overall, security staff can better monitor and observe museum activity. Museum staff appreciated how quick and easy Axis network cameras were to install, which minimized disruption to the museum’s operations. The small size of the Axis network cameras allowed for the preservation of the museum’s aesthetics, since they could be installed in inconspicuous locations. The new system offers better flexibility in terms of monitoring options. It can function in full and low light, allowing for effective around-the-clock surveillance.
