Seamless H.264 megapixel camera and NVR integration 
Arecont Vision announces their collaborative effort with Genius Vision Digital, Inc. (GVD)

Arecont Vision, the industry leader in megapixel IP camera technology, announces their collaborative effort with Genius Vision Digital, Inc. (GVD). The joint effort confirms interoperability of Arecont Vision's H.264 megapixel cameras, offering a highly efficient megapixel surveillance solution on GVD's popular M630-1000 Enterprise Level HD NVR platform.

"Our cooperative effort with GVD further accelerates the integration of our powerful H.264 megapixel cameras with their popular NVR solutions," said Raul Calderon, Vice President of Strategic Relations, Arecont Vision. "We will continue to work closely with other industry leaders to make the implementation and operability of our advanced megapixel imaging solutions ultimately seamless across all platforms."

Arecont Vision's suite of megapixel imaging solutions is led by the company's popular line-up of H.264 IP cameras with 1.3, 2, 3 and 5 megapixels. Featuring Arecont Vision's fully compliant implementation of H.264 compression technology, the H.264 IP cameras provide security professionals with multi-streaming capabilities at different video formats, frame rates, and resolutions. The H.264 encoder delivers 80 billion operations per second resulting in a 10X bandwidth and storage reduction on average over MJPEG megapixel equivalents.

In December of 2008, GVD successfully tested sixty-four (64) Arecont Vision AV3105 megapixel cameras on GVD's M630 system, a flagship enterprise NVR from GVD. The testing included simultaneous camera recording (49), network throughput testing (3Mbps * 64 = 192Mbps), video latency (under 300ms per channel), recorded video seek time (less than two seconds per channel) and video streaming testing (64 H.264 video streams between GVD HD-NVR and Arecont Vision Camera).

The successful testing can be attributed largely to the efficient video storage architecture TSE (Time Sector Engine). GVD conducted a second test that achieved 30 fps for nineteen (19) Arecont Vision AV3105 megapixel cameras.

"Genius Vision Digital's primary focus is megapixel camera management and storage. GVD has products that address the high demand from megapixel cameras using high throughput hardware, redundancy and the most efficient method of writing the data to the hard disks," said Albert Montalvo, Senior Sales Manager, Genius Vision Digital, Inc. He continued, "It is GVD's objective to be the leader in megapixel camera management and storage. By using Arecont's cameras as the model for the development, we feel we are well on the way to achieving our objective."
