Chicago Convention Centre Takes Vandal-Resistant Domes From Rainbow

A large number of colour dome camera units from Rainbow CCTV with vandal-resistant aluminium housings are being used at the Rosemont suburb of Chicago
Chicago Convention Centre Takes Vandal-Resistant Domes From Rainbow
High resolution vandal-resistant colour dome cameras from Rainbow CCTV are being used at a convention centre in Rosemont, a suburb of Chicago.

The 550-TV line units have a 4~9mm lens and are protected from attack by a tough aluminium housing and polycarbonate (IP66) dome. Three hundred and fifty of the cameras have been installed by local integrator Omni-1 Electronics, Inc., with the principal aim of the surveillance being to promote visitor and delegate safety at the convention centre which is to the north west of Chicago in the metropolitan area's "Golden Corridor."

The distributor, who have been active in the project at every stage, are Windy City Wire. John Callahan of Windy City said: "This is a major hub for trade shows and management wanted to make optimum use of surveillance. We were able to liaise closely with Omni-1 Electronics who work throughout the convention centre and the Rosemont airport village area. An initial consideration was the 'IP or analogue?' debate and we recommended this DC auto-iris model."

The cameras give visitors and staff reassurance in public areas and walkways as well as guarding against theft from parking garages. Footage is transmitted to a recording bay of up to 30 digital recorders, and compression algorithms allow remote monitoring by the centre's management as well as civic authorities.

The Donald Stephens Convention Center (formerly the Rosemont Convention Center) features 840,000 square feet of exhibition space for trade fairs and public shows. A sky bridge connects the convention center to three hotels. The facility was renamed to honour Donald Stephens, a leading Illinois Republican politician, who founded the village of Rosemont in the 1950s and served as its mayor for half a century.

The Rainbow domes benefit from a 1/3in Sony Super HAD CCD and will operate at a minimum illumination of 0.1 lux. They measure ø4.1 x 3.2 inches (ø105mm x 80mm) and weigh 1.2 lbs (550g).
