The Australian Museum, Australia’s premier repository for ancient culture and natural history will be hosting a unique exhibition called Alexander the Great: 2000 Years of Treasures from the State Hermitage Museum in Russia in November 2012. This will be the largest exhibition of its kind to ever come to Australia from the Hermitage. The Australian Museum is currently planning the security and logistics for what is expected to be a momentous event for the City of Sydney.

During the exhibition the museum expects to trial a new mobile capability from iOmniscient which will allow a guard who is wandering around the museum to have not just access but full control over all the CCTV cameras in the museum. He will receive alarms from iOmniscient’s comprehensive iQ-Museum system on his iPhone and be able to action and archive them as well as use iOmniscient’s unique Jump to Event capability to determine who was involved at the start of the event from the click of a single button. Essentially he will have the full functionality of the control room in his pocket.

iQ-Museum provides comprehensive solution for museums and art galleries. Palaces, Museums and Art Galleries around the world have realized that traditional CCTV solutions are insufficient for protecting them.  The theft in recent years of the 5 major works including a Picasso and a Matisse worth over Euro 100m, the Euro 40m theft of Van Gogh’s Sunflowers from a Gallery in Cairo and the US$2m Le Chevalier  by Van Meers from the Art Gallery of New Wales highlight the issue. Every one of these was protected using CCTV. All the items were stolen – several in broad daylight within view of hundreds of visitors.

The iQ-Museum has a unique patented capability for detecting the removal of such items even when they are significantly obscured by crowds of visitors. Beyond theft, the system provides counts for understanding traffic flows and a range of other capabilities. iQ-Museum is the most comprehensive video based tool for assisting Galleries and Museums to increase the productivity of their security, operations and marketing teams.
