The security video equipment comes from GE Infrastucture of Austin, Tex.
“Prior to choosing GE, we visited several other museums across the country to review their security systems,” said Ed Ruzumna, director of engineering at the museum. “We also hired a security consultant who is well known for setting up security systems in schools and museums.”
The system consists of 70 fixed dome cameras, five pan-tilt-zoom cameras on the roof and a Digiplex IV video matrix switching system. Cameras can be remotely monitored from several rooms at the museum or at the facility's headquarters.
