Panoramic views with Geutebrück

March 2013 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

The Tyrol Panorama, a new purpose-built museum in Innsbruck, in the Austrian Tyrol, has been designed to showcase both the dramatic, 1000-square-metre, 360-degree wrap-around painting of the same name, as well as the modern day panoramic outlook over Innsbruck, the Inn Valley and the Alps beyond.

Completed in 2011, the three-storey, high-tech concrete and glass construction is set into the hillside next to the Tyrolean Imperial Infantry Museum at Bergisel to the south of the city. Its core exhibit, the vast, recently restored, canvas panorama depicting the local battles of 1809 against Napoleonic and Bavarian forces, dates from 1896 and is one of only 20 artworks of its kind still in existence.

The combined museum and gallery complex is run by Tyrolean State Museums which also manages the Tyrolean State Museum Ferdinandeum, the Museum of Tyrolean Folk Art, the Zeughaus (Armoury), Court Church and the Folk Song Archive. Over recent years the company has repeatedly chosen Geutebrück video solutions to safeguard its buildings and collections and the new Bergisel development was no different. Innsbruck installer Fiegl & Spielberger supplied the alarm and video solutions including Geutebrück re_porter-16 video systems, and installed more than 60 Sony cameras. Besides focusing on the giant panoramic canvas and its viewing gallery, the video security system also monitors all the sensitive areas in and around the museum’s exhibitions of Tyrolean history, life and culture.
