Video Camera Use and Policies
The ALS uses video cameras around the facility for a variety of purposes but primarily to monitor or visualize instrumentation and samples, and to facilitate the remote participation of users in experiments. The vast majority of these cameras would rarely or never capture a person nor record and store footage. They may stream to a local network or remote location that is accessible to beamline staff or the current user group.
To provide transparency about the location of these cameras, fluorescent yellow signs around the facility alert you to the presence of any camera that could potentially capture a person. If you have a camera, please pick up a sign from the Control Room to label your camera.
The ALS values your privacy. If you have any questions or concerns about the use of these cameras, please contact the cognizant staff member of the workstation or Mike Martin, Photon Science Operations Group lead (firstname.lastname@example.org).
