|Valletta waterfront has been secured by the IP camera surveillance provided by GVD Turnkey solution |
Valletta is the capital of Malta, and its Grand Harbour is busy every day transporting thousands of passengers and tourists via cruise terminal along the way of its coast line. As an EU Member State since 2004, as well as the impact of 9/11 attack, Malta needs to provide a secure trading spot and ensure the world that it is an internationally safe region at all times. Hence, a project of implementing more than 50pcs of 3M megapixel cameras and scalable back-end support system is required and installed at the terminal gate.
Problem & Issue
For this is a cruise terminal, a place wide open 24 hours every day to tourists and lots of activities going on around Maltese ports, harbours, bays, quays and berths. It is not easy for the gate staff to control all possible situations, unless large and wide areas along the quay side of the Valletta Waterfront covered with IP cameras.
So security staff would demand immediate viewing, detailed image, critical event alerts and recording for later investigation in order to rule out any possible occurrences of crimes, as well as the capability to remotely monitor activities anytime from anywhere in order to gain control. And this cannot be achieved without megapixel IP surveillance system.
Solution & Benefit
GVD provides a scalable total solution to cover all these monitoring areas, the ability to manage high resolution and a network-based system. With successive installation in cooperation with the strong system provider Alberta, GVD empowered megapixel systems guarantee the complete monitoring of people and goods in transit in all the areas of the port, and to achieve a unified management of the region, in terms of both the hardware and software. Karim Cassar, Tenders & Technicall Research Executive at Alberta points out the benefits of GVD and said: "I selected GVD products over competitive products for its good response and support. The system is working very well to date."
