Arecont Vision indoor/outdoor surface mount model of the new MicroDome product line

Arecont Vision, the industry leader in IP-based megapixel camera technology, introduces a surface mount option for the new ultra low profile MicroDome cameras. The new line of multi-megapixel cameras is designed for applications where both high-resolution and a minimal footprint are required. MicroDome cameras are available in resolutions of 1.3 megapixels (MP), 1080p, 3MP and 5MP with an option for true Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) imaging at 1080p and 3MP. In its surface mount housing, the Arecont Vision MicroDome camera is IP66 environmental rated to resist dust and water. The domes on all MicroDome cameras are IK-10 impact resistant. MicroDome cameras ship with 4mm lenses. Additional lenses are available at 2.8mm, 6mm, 8mm, 12mm and 16mm. All MicroDome cameras use true mechanical day/night IR cut filters for excellent low light performance, with pixel binning available at 3MP and 5MP. The cameras are all-in-one Power over Ethernet (PoE) solutions and provide audio capabilities: a microphone is standard on flush mount models and an audio jack is included on the surface mount models. Casino Mode in 1080p models maintains 30 frames-per-second (fps) or higher. Standard features of Arecont Vision IP megapixel cameras include a dual H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10) and JPEG encoder, fast frame rates, on-camera privacy masking and 1024-zone motion detection. The company’s WDR technology delivers a dynamic range of up to 100dB at full resolution without lowering 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 new MegaBall® G2 offers 1.2, 1080p, 3, and 5 megapixel choices in an all-in-one camera. New adjustable IR LEDs and flush, surface, or bell mount housings. Select motorised P-Iris lens or manual Panomorph 360°.  Advanced options include true day/night, STELLAR™ advanced low-light technology, true WDR at up to 100dB at full resolution. Resolution The MegaBall G2 megapixel camera series fuses optimum performance with outstanding aesthetics. These stylish indoor cameras feature a choice of 1.2-, 1080p-, 3-, or 5-megapixel (MP) resolution options. Challenging lighting conditions Regardless of time-of-day, this camera is ideal for applications with challenging lighting conditions. The series combines a day/night mechanical IR cut filter with an integrated P-iris lens for precise, optimal image quality. For applications with poor lighting conditions optional wide dynamic range is available on some 1080p and 3MP models. For challenging low-light colour images without IR, the 1.2MP STELLAR™, “Spatio Temporal Low Light Architecture” model offers best-in-class light sensitivity capturing details in near complete darkness. For additional low light capabilities Binning Mode is available on 3MP and 5MP camera models. Adjustable infrared illumination MegaBall G2 IR models are integrated with an Adjustable Infrared Illuminator, providing clear images in extreme, low-light scenes. Infrared camera models offer the ability to manually adjust the IR's level of intensity, providing the flexibility to ensure the scene is illuminated uniformly. Ease of installation The camera's interface allows for an intuitive, fast, and easy configuration; while the Free AV IP Utility tool allows users to quickly configure multiple cameras at one time. The MegaBall G2 is ONVIF Profile S (Open Network Video Interface Forum) and PSIA (Physical Security Interoperability Alliance) compliant, providing interoperability between network video products regardless of manufacturer.
