Installing Confidence Every Day
From minor upgrades to major installations, companies rely on AAI for consultation on the features and benefits of products & services. AAI worked with American Direct to ensure their project stayed on schedule and budget. Among other cameras, they needed an additional PTZ camera installed on their roof and integrated into their existing access control system allowing them improved situational awareness of their facility. Scott Clingan, from AAI, discussed the options with the client to determine their needs. A PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) camera was chosen to actively monitor the site. Richard Cowsert, Team Leader of AAI (seen pictured), installed a set of cameras in short order.
PTZ cameras combine a motorized mechanism which enables it to move in multiple directions. These movements are:
- Pan: Left/right horizontal movement
- Tilt: Up/down vertical movement
- Zoom: Near and far
It’s important to understand the difference between digital zoom and optical zoom. Ultimately, optical zoom is better as the maginification of field is the result of the physical lens. Digital zoom is a function of software resulting in the cropping and enlarging of pixels captured by the actual lens. Digital zoom helps to display fine details on smaller monitors, but is completely irrelevant to how far a camera can see.
AAI coordinated all parts of the on-site installation, service agreements, and long-term support with a single point of contact.
