Arecont Vision announces world's first 12-megapixel 180° panoramic dome camera with true Wide Dynamic Range

Published on 11 April, 2013

Arecont Vision, the industry leader in IP megapixel camera technology, recently announced the availability of the world’s first 12-megapixel 180° panoramic dome camera with true Wide Dynamic Range (WDR).

In addition to its superior performance under challenging lighting conditions, Arecont Vision’s new 12-megapixel WDR 180° panoramic camera is less than half the size of previous SurroundVideo models. Arecont Vision’s WDR technology delivers a dynamic range of up to 100dB at full resolution and without lowering the 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 an up to 50dB improvement (300X) in dynamic range compared to non-WDR cameras.

“Our panoramic cameras render pan-tilt-zoom cameras obsolete by covering a full 180° field-of-view with high resolution, allowing users to zoom-in for details,” said Raul Calderon, Senior Vice President of Operations, Engineering and Product Management, Arecont Vision. “Adding WDR to the panoramic view has resulted in a camera unlike any other on the market.”

Arecont Vision megapixel technology delivers superior image quality and reduces overall system costs by covering larger areas with fewer cameras. Four 3-megapixel WDR image sensors inside the SurroundVideo WDR 180° camera each provide 2,048 x 1,536-pixel resolution for a total resolution of 8,192 x 1,536-pixels. The SurroundVideo WDR 180° panoramic camera’s dome housing is IP66 environmentally rated and IK10 vandal resistant.  The camera is ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) conformant.
