Leading Diamond Courier Malca-Amit Secures Precious Cargo at UK Warehouse and Head Office with Avigilon High-Definition Surveillance System

Avigilon high-definition surveillance system delivers strong ROI by reducing infrastructure, liability, and insurance costs; delivers peace of mind to customers


VANCOUVER, CANADA – June 19, 2012 – Avigilon, a leader in high-definition (HD) and megapixel video surveillance solutions, today announced that Malca-Amit UK, a leading provider of secure logistical solutions and full operational services for companies dealing with precious commodities, high-valuable goods, and special events, has deployed the Avigilon high-definition surveillance system at its new UK warehouse and corporate office to protect and safeguard its clients’ precious cargo from origin to destination.

“Because we ship the majority of the world’s diamond and jewellery, the very nature of our business makes security absolutely critical to our success,” said Stephan Kazes, managing director of Malca-Amit UK. “Chosen for its image quality, advanced management features, and ease-of-use, the Avigilon high definition surveillance system enables us to capture indisputable video evidence of vehicles, individuals, and packages entering and exiting our premises to deliver the level of security our clients expect.”

For complete coverage of both the interior and exterior of the 10,000 square foot warehouse, parking lot and main road, Malca-Amit installed 65 Avigilon HD cameras ranging from 2 MP to 29 MP, mounting cameras with an automatic infrared (IR) filter for high resolution surveillance in low-light conditions.

The corporate office in London installed Avigilon 2 MP and 5 MP cameras, along with several Avigilon analog video encoders to boost the performance of its existing analog-based surveillance cameras. Security personnel manage the high-definition surveillance system live around-the-clock from the warehouse and an offsite monitoring station using the Avigilon Control Center network video management software (NVMS) with High-Definition Stream Management™ (HDSM) technology. Malca-Amit also installed Avigilon Network Video Recorders (NVRs) to store up to 90 days of continuous surveillance footage.

Malca-Amit confidently ensures the safe transit of its clients’ valuable assets. Furthermore, the company can achieve “known shipper” status to help grow its business. Security personnel can find event details in minutes instead of hours and can quickly and effortless share video with key stakeholders.

Delivering greater coverage with fewer cameras, the Avigilon high-definition surveillance system resulted in 40 percent savings in infrastructure, installation, training, and maintenance costs. Leveraging the Avigilon high-definition surveillance system, Malca-Amit has also improved employee productivity, safety, and customer service.

“In ‘delivering absolute peace of mind,’ Malca-Amit’s success depends in large part on its ability to protect and secure its clients high-value cargo while in transit,” said Keith Marett, vice president of marketing and communications at Avigilon. “As a key component of its overall security program, the Avigilon high-definition surveillance system delivers the image clarity, search and playback capabilities, storage capacity, and ease-of-use the company needs to achieve its stringent security goals.”
