Arecont Vision Cameras Watch Cruise Ships Port in Historic Malta

Megapixel Solution

A recent upgrade to the terminal’s surveillance system included installation of 50-megapixel cameras from Arecont Vision, the first and largest installation of 5 Megapixel cameras in the Maltese Islands. The 3.0-megapixel cameras utilized in this installation send the video along with an information network -- providing greater resolution than images from conventional network cameras. In fact, the 3.0-megapixel cameras provide images with 10 times the resolution of standard VGA network cameras. The full-motion high-definition digital video combines superior image quality with manageable bandwidth and storage requirements.

The system was installed by Alberta Group, Malta’s leading provider of fire, safety and security systems. Alberta specializes in custom solutions to resolve their customers’ specific problems and to decrease customers’ exposure to risk.

Arecont Vision’s MegaVideo® technology enables coverage of large areas with extreme detail. The Arecont Vision AV3100 provides image processing at billions of operations per second and can output multiple image formats to allow simultaneous viewing of the full resolution field of view and regions of interest. The cameras provide four times the resolution of standard IP cameras with the ability to output full real-time frame rates. The 3 megapixel Arecont Vision AV3100 cameras used at the cruise ship terminal in Malta provide 2048x1536-pixel progressive scan images at 15 frames per second.

“Alberta invests a great deal of money and resources into developing and evaluating the best technological advances to provide superior performance to our customers,” said Karim Cassar, Alberta’s Technical Research Executive. “Arecont Vision’s megapixel cameras fit perfectly into our technology-centric approach to the market, as demonstrated by their performance in our installation at the cruise ship terminal in Valletta.”

Megapixel Benefits

The cruise ship at Valletta deployed the latest megapixel camera technology from Arecont Vision to secure its port and surrounding tourist areas. The system deployed delivers wide-area video coverage with superior resolution and cost-efficiency. With the new system, surveillance operators can zoom in on the life or recorded video to see detailed images of any scene.

“Arecont Vision cameras provide unparalleled image quality and resolution for applications world-wide, and their ability to boost image resolution without taxing bandwidth or storage resources is documented at the cruise terminal in Malta,” said Steven Sarfati, Senior Vice President of International Sales at Arecont Vision. “As throngs of passengers travel through the terminal on their way to a historic experience in Malta, Arecont Vision cameras will be keeping a watchful eye with HD resolution.”
