The MegaView® 2 cameras are available in resolutions of 1.3MP, 1080p, 3MP, 5MP and 10MP

Arecont Vision, the industry leader in IP-based megapixel camera technology, is showcasing its new MegaView® 2 and MegaBall® 2 series of all-in-one Day/Night H.264 megapixel cameras here at ASIS 2013. Both camera series feature remote focus and remote zoom P-iris lenses to ease installation, and optional true Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) at 1080p and 3-megapixels (MP).

The MegaView® 2 cameras are available in resolutions of 1.3MP, 1080p, 3MP, 5MP and 10MP. They offer optional built-in infrared (IR) illuminator LEDs. MegaView® 2 cameras come with a junction box and an easy to adjust 3-axis wall mount to further simplify installation. Their bullet-style enclosures are IP66 environmentally rated.

The spherically shaped MegaBall® 2 cameras are available in 1.3MP, 1080p, 3MP and 5MP models, and come with an integrated cable management structure to simplify installation. MegaBall® 2 cameras also offer versatile bracket or dome installation configurations.

These remote focus / remote zoom cameras can be installed without having to perform field of-view or focus adjustments on site. Lens operations can be remotely controlled from the head end. The P-iris lens provides an optimized iris position for the best depth of field and image clarity. Short or full range focus scan functions analyze a region of interest or the full scene to determine the best focus for the adjusted field of view.

“We are pleased to expand Arecont Vision’s popular MegaView® and MegaBall® camera series. Remote focus and remote zoom make these new cameras exceptionally easy to install which can help reduce overall costs,” said Raul Calderon, Senior Vice President, Arecont Vision. “Including a matching junction box with the MegaView® 2 and the MegaBall® 2’s cable management system are product details that demonstrate how Arecont Vision cameras are manufactured with the installer in mind.”

Arecont Vision’s WDR technology delivers a dynamic range of up to 100dB at full resolution 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 conventional cameras.

In addition to the remote focus and remote zoom P-iris lens, MegaView® 2 and MegaBall® 2 cameras offer many performance features including H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10)/MJPEG dual encoders, privacy masking, extended motion detection with 1,024 distinct motion detection zones, outstanding low light performance, a binning function for increased sensitivity (3MP and 5 MP models), flexible cropping to adjust image sizes and the ability to choose PoE (Power over Ethernet) or external power.
