March Networks, a provider of intelligent IP video solutions, recently introduced the MegaPX Modular ATM Camera. Providing sharp, 3MP images and an impressive 3-foot vertical view of ATM customers in all lighting conditions, the camera enables banking investigators and law enforcement to clearly identify faces and other distinguishing features. Its two-component design ensures easy installation in compact ATMs, including the NCR SelfServ 34 Walk-Up. The camera is the newest complement to March Networks’ comprehensive banking solution used by more than 500 financial institutions worldwide.
MegaPX Modular ATM Camera
“The Modular ATM Camera delivers exceptional images. One of our credit union customers tested it recently and was so impressed with the video quality that they only want these cameras in their ATMs moving forward,” said Jeff Popoff, Installation and Service Technician with systems integrator Chubb Edwards. “The camera is also very easy to install, so it’s definitely one we would recommend.”
The MegaPX Modular ATM Camera is the most recent addition to March Networks’ line of purpose-built ATM IP cameras, mounts, and locking brackets. Measuring just 1.1 H x 1.0 W x 1.4 D inches with a separate decoding unit and flexible 40-inch cable, it is available with a standard or View Window mounting bracket—both of which lock securely into place to ensure the camera does not shift, tilt, or fall back during daily ATM vaulting—saving banks the time and cost of repeat service calls.

Providing comprehensive video evidence
Similar to the self-contained MegaPX ATM Camera, the modular camera combines high dynamic range (HDR) and robust low-light performance to capture clear video in high-contrast lighting, such as the direct sunlight and near-dark conditions experienced at ATM vestibules and drive-throughs at different times of the day. Available with a 2.8mm standard lens, the camera’s wide field-of-view (FOV) records ATM users from the waist up rather than just capturing faces to provide more comprehensive video evidence. In addition, the camera can be configured to auto-correct images recorded behind tinted ATM glass enclosures.
To speed up maintenance, each MegaPX Modular ATM Camera includes a unique QR code that technicians can scan with their smartphone or tablet using March Networks’ free GURU Smartphone Application. GURU automates typically time-consuming tasks such as determining a camera’s serial number, verifying its warranty status, and completing online return forms. The app also connects systems integrators with how-to video tutorials, product manuals and convenient troubleshooting tools to help them work more efficiently and resolve camera issues onsite.
Purpose-build design and capabilities
“With card data theft on the rise and reports of new ‘shimmer’ fraud targeting chip-based credit and debit cards, banks and credit unions want to know they are capturing the best video evidence possible at their ATMs,” said Dan Cremins, Head of Global Product Management with March Networks. “This new ATM camera enables this thanks to its purpose-built design and capabilities that are consistent with March Networks’ leadership position providing intelligent end-to-end video solutions to financial institutions to help address their real-world business challenges.”
March Networks will showcase the MegaPX Modular ATM Camera and its complete banking solution in Booth 25041 at the International Security Conference and Exposition (ISC West), April 5-7, at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Las Vegas, Nevada.
