sensors, individually mounted in the 3-axis gimbals
Arecont Vision®, provider of IP-based megapixel camera technology, unveiled the MicroDome® Duo twin-sensor megapixel camera last week at IFSEC International.
The MicroDome Duo features twin megapixel camera sensors that are individually mounted in the Arecont Vision-designed 3-axis gimbals for outstanding adjustability and are each able to look in virtually any direction, including straight down.
MicroDome Duo applications
This new camera is ideal for providing coverage of areas that require high definition video of two directions simultaneously where a full-sized multi-sensor SurroundVideo® series camera is not required. Common uses will be for building entrances, exits, and corridors, for indoor or outdoor corners, or placed above two POS (point of sale terminals) or ATMs (automated teller machines). There are many other bi-directional applications.
The stylish, low-profile MicroDome Duo camera will be available in 4, 6, and 10MP models. The ability to change lenses brings additional flexibility in application use, with 2.1, 2.8, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 16mm lens choices.
The MicroDome Duo features remote focus for fast installation, and is a true day/night camera that is ideal for applications with variable lighting conditions regardless of time of day. Applications with bright or over-saturated lighting conditions can be addressed with models that include Wide Dynamic Range (WDR).
Increased situational awareness
“The [MicroDome Duo] will be popular with customers who have had to rely upon multiple single sensor or costly PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) cameras to cover a wide range of applications,” said Brad Donaldson, Vice President of Product Development, Arecont Vision. “This small, compact camera will provide outstanding video and situational awareness at a very affordable price point.”
MicroDome Duo cameras offer advanced streaming capabilities. They are designed on the Arecont Vision highly efficient H.264 encoding platform to deliver high quality video without straining the network. New Arecont Vision SNAPstream™ (Smart Noise Adaptation and Processing) technology further decreases bandwidth usage.
