Arecont Vision®, the industry leader in IP-based megapixel camera technology, announces the new MegaVideo® Flex multi-megapixel ultra-small, ultra-flexible camera series. MegaVideo Flex will be displayed with several examples of the wide range of possible applications that this unique camera offers at ISC West in the Arecont Vision booth, #8045, Sands Convention Center, Las Vegas, April 6-8, 2016.

Indoor/outdoor camera series

The MegaVideo Flex camera series offers a cost-effective security solution for installations that require a more flexible and compact design than other professional security cameras deliver. Due to its small footprint, the MegaVideo Flex easily fits into a wide range of areas and settings, such as ATMs (automatic teller machines) and other tight or discreet spaces while delivering megapixel (MP) high definition video. The stylish indoor/outdoor camera series features a choice of 1.2MP, 1080p, 3MP, and 5MP resolution models.

MegaVideo Flex is a true day/night camera that is ideal for applications with variable lighting conditions regardless of time of day. NightView™ technology in the 1.2MP model ensures coverage in areas where little light is present. Two optional IR (infrared) illuminators may be added to further increase video clarity. Applications with bright or over-saturated lighting conditions can be addressed with models that include Wide Dynamic Range (WDR).

The MegaVideo Flex is composed of the camera sensor, metal mounting bracket, USB cable, and the main camera unit.

Easy installation

Installation is quite simple. The camera sensor can be surface mounted via the supplied mounting bracket or flush mounted into a ceiling or wall with the two (2) included fastening nuts. No additional mounting accessories are required.

For added flexibility, the USB cable allows the camera sensor to be mounted in one area while the main unit is up to 40 feet (12m) away. The camera includes both white and black trim rings so that the small sensor further blends into many environments.

The main unit features two (2) USB ports to allow the addition of one or two IR illuminators. Each illuminator includes six (6) infrared 850nm LEDs to provide up to 49 feet (15m) of night vision capability.

"The MegaVideo Flex will be very attractive to customers looking for a professional megapixel camera that delivers optimum performance yet can fit into tight spaces and discreet environments" says Brad Donaldson, VP Product Development, Arecont Vision

MegaVideo Flex cameras are enhanced with the convenience of remote focus. This facilitates both the ease of initial setup and future adjustments, reducing time required to be spent at the jobsite. The ability to change lenses brings additional flexibility in application uses. Options include 2.1, 2.8, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 16mm lenses.

“The MegaVideo Flex will be very attractive to customers looking for a professional megapixel camera that delivers optimum performance yet can fit into tight spaces and discreet environments,” said Brad Donaldson, Vice President of Product Development, Arecont Vision. “With smaller cameras typically more of a challenge to adjust, the remote focus capability of the MegaVideo Flex provides the convenience of remotely focusing the camera both for initial installation and for changes in the future.”

Offers advanced streaming capabilities

MegaVideo Flex cameras offer advanced streaming capabilities. They are designed on the Arecont Vision highly efficient H.264 encoding platform to deliver high quality video without straining the network. Power can be supplied via a single Power-over Ethernet (PoE) compliant network cable, or powered from a 12-48V DC/24V AC power supply. The camera interface allows for an intuitive, fast, and easy configuration. The AV IP Utility tool allows users to quickly configure or update one or multiple cameras simultaneously.

Arecont Vision megapixel cameras have been proven in thousands of customer projects around the world, integrated with leading video network software (VMS) or network video recorder (NVR) systems.

Visit Arecont Vision at ISC West, booth #8045, April 6-8, 2016 to see live demonstrations of several applications of MegaVideo Flex.
