Arecont Vision®, a manufacturer of IP-based megapixel camera technology, announces the future expansion of the compact MicroDome® G2 ultra-low profile camera family with the unveiling of new models with built-in infrared (IR) illumination. The MicroDome G2 with Integrated IR will be on display in Booth 8405 at ISC West 2017, held in the Exhibit Hall at the Sands Expo, Las Vegas, Nevada, April 5th-7th.

Integrated IR illumination

“We continue to deliver amazing capabilities in extremely small packages,” said Brad Donaldson, Vice President Product Development, for Arecont Vision. “The addition of integrated IR to our Made in USA MicroDome G2 series brings a highly-requested feature to an already feature-rich professional surveillance camera series.”

The MicroDome G2 with IR provides outstanding around-the-clock surveillance for both indoor and outdoor applications.

MicroDome G2 with IR offers a choice of 1.2MP, 1080p, 3MP, or 5MP resolution models. Each camera is available with lens choices ranging from 2.1 to 16mm, supporting the widest possible application requirements. SNAPstream™ (Smart Noise Adaptation and Processing) technology reduces camera bandwidth consumption in all MicroDome G2 with IR models without impacting image quality.

Each MicroDome G2 with IR camera offers remote focus capability to simplify set-up and significantly reduce installation time. The installer can mount the camera on or in a wall, ceiling, or structure, then point the sensor at the area to be covered before screwing down the bubble. Once off the lift or ladder, the installer can select “Short Range Focus” or “Full Range Focus” from the camera webpage for rapid setup over the network, or they can fine-tune the focus as required by the scene.

MPIPA architecture

All Arecont Vision cameras run the in-house developed, Massively Parallel Image Processing Architecture (MPIPA) on the Field Programmable Gate Array (FGPA) integrated circuit at the core of the device. All core features and technologies are developed by Arecont Vision, allowing installed cameras to be upgraded with new capabilities, and thereby extending the useful life of the device.

By employing the unique MPIPA architecture, Arecont Vision cameras do not require the use of common imbedded operating systems. This approach eliminates the risk of a cyber hacker repurposing an Arecont Vision camera for use in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS), network penetration, ransomware, or other increasingly common cyberattacks.

Challenging lighting conditions

The MicroDome G2 with IR series is designed for applications with challenging lighting conditions, featuring a built-in day/night mechanical IR cut filter. For applications with strong backlighting, reflections from wet flooring, streets or puddles, or contrast due to fog, mist, or glare, optional Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) equipped 1080p and 3MP models are also available. Built-in CorridorView™ technology provides better coverage of hallways, corridors, and other narrow spaces without wasting pixels on unchanging areas.

The MicroDome G2 with IR camera features Arecont Vision’s installer-friendly flush or in-ceiling mount enclosures to simplify installation. The rugged, tamper-resistant, die-cast aluminium housing features a polycarbonate dome bubble that is both IK-10 impact-resistant and IP66 weatherproof rated. The MicroDome G2 with IR is ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) Series S compliant.
