Company Highlight: Alberta
IP technology has opened new horizons in video surveillance allowing the images captured from cameras to be transmitted as chunks of data over a network infrastructure while the recording medium is now a digital computer and the image quality is measured in megapixels, hence these systems are sometimes also referred to as megapixel surveillance.
That the camera uses IP for transmission is important because transmissions are no longer bound by the broadcasting standard. In theory, we could now have any resolution we wanted. You could as easily envision a 50 megapixel surveillance camera.
Alberta, being a leader in IP surveillance on the Maltese islands is the local authorised supplier and installer of the top IP CCTV brands carrying within its inventory a range of IP CCTV cameras starting from 1Megapixel and up to 29 Megapixel, which is so far the largest in the commercial market. This means that we can provide you with a picture from a single surveillance camera that is equivalent to 145 analogue cameras!
However, IP surveillance is not only about picture quality, it allows you to easily scale any installation as your needs and budgets grow. With IP surveillance systems you attain the perfect solution for businesses and households alike. Large deployments like campuses, multi-level buildings and multi-site monitoring can possibly be monitored from a single centralised or remote location.
Alberta has to date carried out installations consisting of more than 120 x 2 Megapixel plus 10 x 5 Megapixel cameras on a single network infrastructure and recordings spread over multiple NVRs. Installation costs are also reduced due to the fact that IP cameras require only a single run of cable for each and every camera.
Migrating from an existing analogue system is easy thanks to purposely designed plug in devices that convert an analogue broadcast into a digital data stream with the advantage of keeping an existing infrastructure and benefiting from the advanced features of a digital platform explained hereunder.
Last but not least collected data can be easily organised, processed and transformed into useful information. Improved search functions such as missing object search, pixel search and license plate registration search are more accurate and achievable. Systems that learn, identify vehicles and humans while ignoring pets and other objects. These intelligent systems can be programmed to prevent a crime from happening by sending notifications based on a set of pre programmed rules like vehicles and humans travelling in the wrong direction, people counting, trespassing and more.
The future of surveillance is Alberta; the first to introduce such technologically advanced systems in Malta. Up till now, it gained invaluable experience in the deployment of IP surveillance systems, thus making it the leader in the market with a competitive edge based on skill and knowledge.
