UNESCO World Heritage Pompeii protected by MOBOTIX

Pompeii is a world-famous ancient Roman city near modern Naples that was destroyed and buried under volcanic ash when the Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD.

To protect the extraordinarily well-preserved artifacts and decorated surfaces and to prevent potential damage caused by the 2.5 million visitors every year, over 380 MOBOTIX dual-dome cameras were installed at the inner heart of this archaeological site.

MOBOTIX won over all other technologies, especially because of the unrivaled image quality and the decentralized system structure which results in less network infrastructure and a reduction of the overall system costs.

In summer 2015, the MOBOTIX Partner Metoda started the installation of the first video cameras. Except for ten D25, which have been chosen to blend with the architecture and style, all cameras are models D15. Above all, these models feature individual lens orientation and fully modular set-up. Using the D15 two different areas can be monitored at once. They are mounted both on the light posts placed both along the perimeter of the archaeological site, and on the internal and external walls of the Roman Domus villas.

The video cameras are in operation 24/7. The recordings can later be viewed on nine 42-inch monitors in a dedicated control room provided with four workstations dedicated for the monitoring personnel.

The advanced video security system has become a valuable support for of the physical surveillance activity of the guards to secure the Cultural Heritage, which may receive up to 15,000 tourists in a single day.
