Rare Picasso Exhibit Secured by Milestone Video

XProtect video management software (VMS) and the Milestone Mobile Client provided round-the-clock monitoring for a 153-piece Picasso exhibit at the Tomie Ohtake Institute in in São Paulo, Brazil.

Since its opening in 2001, the Tomie Ohtake Institute has been recognized for its special design—architecturally and conceptually—for hosting national and international exhibitions of visual arts, architecture, and design. In 2014 alone, the institute welcomed more than 1.3 million visitors to 210 art exhibits. The collection of Picasso paintings from the Musée Picasso Paris is a perfect example of the works shown at the Institute.

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.

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.

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