Langmeil, Germany:  Pompeii is the world-famous ancient Roman city near modern Naples which may receive up to 15,000 tourists in a single day – a numerical turnout second to only the Coliseum in Italy. To protect the extraordinarily well-preserved artifacts and decorated surfaces and to prevent potential damage, 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. The need to install a video security system was born of the Great Pompeii project, an undertaking ordered by the Italian Government for the purpose of reinforcing the effectiveness of the conservation, prevention, maintenance, and restoration in the archaeological area of Pompeii.

The archaeological site sends very frequent reports of graffiti, scratches, and defacing of the walls and frescoes of the Roman Domus villas, which are at the heart of the archaeological site. These acts of vandalism are carried out by tourists with their pens and fingernails when they somehow manage to stay within the walls on purpose even after the site is closed to the public.

The Italian MOBOTIX partner Metoda had no doubt about the best solution to offer to the Pompeii Authority for implementing the video surveillance project. "MOBOTIX easily satisfied the requirements of the bid for tenders, and was in fact the only technology truly capable of providing an answer to the actual requirements of the Authority. A great success, most of all because of the quality of the images, which completely surpassed all the expectations of the customer," explains Cesare Gonnelli, General Manager of Metoda.

The protection of the World Heritage Site of Pompeii is just one example of a successful deployment of MOBOTIX outdoor cameras world-wide. MOBOTIX outdoor cameras are Made in Germany in line with highest quality standards and tested in operation from -30 °C up to +60 °C. Currently MOBOTIX offers a doubling of the manufacturer warranty from two to four years for all outdoor models until the end of September 2016.
