Rare Picasso Exhibit Secured by Milestone Video

Milestone XProtect and Milestone Mobile Client provide around-the-clock video surveillance for 153-piece Picasso exhibit at the Tomie Ohtake Institute, Brazil


COPENHAGEN/Beaverton – May 23, 2017. 
Milestone XProtect, the leading open platform IP video management software (VMS), was selected to provide a 24-hour video security solution to protect a unique Pablo Picasso exhibit at the Tomie Ohtake Institute in São Paulo, Brazil.

The Tomie Ohtake Institute covers 2,300 square meters, divided into seven gallery areas. For the Picasso exhibit, two large galleries measuring 300 square meters each were used. According to the systems integrator, the security objective for the Picasso exhibit was to make sure that there were no surveillance camera blind spots of the exhibit space.

Since its opening in 2001, the Tomie Ohtake Institute has been recognized as one of the few places in São Palo specially designed—architecturally and conceptually—to host national and international exhibitions of visual arts, architecture, and design.

“The Tomie Ohtake Institute is very popular among Brazilians. In 2014 alone, the Institute welcomed more than 1.3 million visitors to 210 art exhibits," said an integrator representative. "In this case, we carefully studied the location to determine the best plan for implementing a video monitoring and security system."

The Milestone XProtect VMS securely managed, displayed, and recorded video data for live, real-time monitoring, and stored video for the forensic review of events. The Milestone Mobile client enabled remote viewing of video images on iOS or Android mobile devices, in addition to the user interfaces using computers with high-speed Internet.

The Picasso exhibit's total video security solution included the Milestone XProtect VMS, Milestone XProtect Smart Client, Milestone Mobile client, and Axis 3007-PV panoramic network cameras. The integrator also installed an Allied Telesis PoE Switch and SPEEDY fiber optic technology. The staff in charge of operating the system was provided with detailed user training and a general course on the use of video security.

"Thanks to this total surveillance solution, there were no incidents during the Picasso exhibit,” said the integrator. "The system helped prevent problems and created a safe and secure experience for everyone who attended.”
