Webcams can be used to provide continuous monitoring of specified rooms, open areas and locations, and this can be useful for documentary or advertising purposes.
Description of services
At www.webcam.ethz.ch (in German only), the Multimedia Services department operates a portal which uses various webcams (in the Main Building and on the Hönggerberg campus) to transmit impressions of ETH Zurich and support certain services (e.g. how busy the canteens are). It also offers advice and support on installing and operating your own webcams, and clarification on legal aspects.
