Arecont Vision’s new Compact Dual Sensor Day/Night Camera features dual H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10) and MJPEG encoders
The megapixel camera features a colour 3-megapixel (MP) image sensor with Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)

Arecont Vision, the industry leader in IP-based megapixel camera technology, is displaying a new MegaVideo® Compact Dual Sensor Day/Night Camera here at ASIS 2013. The megapixel camera features a color 3-megapixel (MP) image sensor with Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) along with a monochrome 1.3MP image sensor with superior low light performance. Together the dual sensors ensure that the camera captures highly detailed images in changing lighting conditions by switching from colour WDR to monochrome when light levels fall below a specified threshold or by streaming both sensors simultaneously. Additionally, WDR technology enables the new Compact Dual Sensor Day/Night Camera to capture high quality images even in scenes with highly contrasted lighting conditions.

“The new dual sensor camera is an excellent solution to a difficult real-world problem which video surveillance faces: when a wide dynamic range scene during the daytime turns into a very low light scene at night,” said Dr. Michael Korkin, Vice President of Engineering, Arecont Vision. “Unlike the competition, our new camera offers no compromise between the daytime resolution and nighttime sensitivity, and offers both, including WDR, in a very compact inexpensive package.”

Arecont Vision’s new Compact Dual Sensor Day/Night Camera features dual H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10) and MJPEG encoders, fast image rates, up-scaling on the 1.3MP monochrome sensor to 3MP, bit rate control, multi-streaming, forensic zooming and PoE.

The new Compact Dual Sensor Day/Night Camera will be available during Q3 2013.
