The MegaView now incorporates Arecont Vision’s STELLAR Low Light Technology and CorridorView capability
Arecont Vision®, the industry leader in IP megapixel camera technology, has added a number of significant features to the company’s popular MegaView® 2 Day/Night bullet style megapixel cameras. New MegaView® 2 features being demonstrated here at ASIS 2014 (booth# 337) include Arecont Vision®’s groundbreaking STELLAR™ (Spatio TEmporal Low Light ARchitecture) Low Light Technology, optional on-board storage up to 32GB via an SDHC card slot; CorridorView™ capability that allows the camera’s image to be rotated 90 degrees for better coverage in hallways and corridors; and an extended ability to scale images to different resolutions to better meet system bandwidth and storage requirements.
Additional performance features found in MegaView® 2 Day/Night megapixel cameras include remote focus/zoom p-iris lenses, Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) up to 100dB, integrated infrared illuminators, and wide angle or telephoto options. MegaView® 2 Day/Night megapixel cameras are available in a wide range of models with resolution up to 10MP.
“Arecont Vision® continues to establish new benchmarks in megapixel performance to address the evolving needs of our customers, and the way today’s advanced systems are being designed and implemented,” said Raul Calderon, Senior Vice President, Arecont Vision®. “As we continue to innovate new megapixel imaging products, we will also continue to improve upon existing market leading products such as our MegaView® 2 Day/Night megapixel cameras by adding enhanced features such as STELLAR™ that further improve their performance and coverage capabilities.”
The 1.2 megapixel MegaView® 2 camera now incorporates Arecont Vision®’s innovative STELLAR™ Low Light Technology, which expands low-light performance by reducing motion blur, noise and storage requirements while also enhancing contrast and allowing color imaging in near complete darkness.
In addition to these new features, MegaView® 2 cameras feature Arecont Vision®’s wide dynamic range (WDR) technology which provides a dynamic range of up to 100dB at full resolution without lowering frame rates. By combining long and short exposures in the same field of view, WDR maximises the amount of detail in both bright and dark areas of a scene. The WDR performance of Arecont Vision® cameras represents up to 50dB improvement (300X) in dynamic range compared to conventional cameras.
Additional performance features found in MegaView® 2 cameras include: H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10)/MJPEG dual encoders; privacy masking; extended motion detection with 1,024 distinct motion detection zones; pixel binning for increased light sensitivity (3MP, 5MP and 10MP models); IP66 environmentally rated housings for use in harsh environments; flexible cropping to adjust image sizes; and the ability to choose PoE (Power over Ethernet) or external power. MegaView® 2 Telephoto cameras are available with integrated long distance infrared illuminators in resolutions of 1080p WDR, 3MP WDR, 5MP and 10MP.
