|Geutebruck IP cameras and digital video system secure 10,000 exhibits in an area of 13,000 square meters
For the military history museum in Dresden, quality is key - in its security system as in its building and displays. - Hence its use of the latest Geutebruck IP cameras and digital video system platform for storing and transmitting video and audio data.
The ‘Militärhistorische Museum’ is the German army’s principal museum. Re-opened in 2011 after extensive modernization and the addition of a contrasting extension designed by US architect Daniel Libeskind, it is one of the three largest museums in Germany and the most up to date military history museum in Europe. The original armoury building, dating from 1877, is now ‘cut through’ by a stark modern wedge-shaped addition intended to symbolise Germany’s eventful military history.
Regarding itself as a modern cultural history museum, its displays confront the visitor with his own potential for aggression and address violence as an historical, cultural and anthropological phenomenon. Its permanent exhibition with some 10,000 exhibits is displayed in an area of 13,000 square meters, and is divided into a thematic exhibition in the new extension and chronological displays in the original armoury.
