Norbain is pleased to announce that it can now offer customers the new Arecont Vision MegaBall® 2 camera series, providing wide area coverage with significant cost-efficiency.
The MegaBall® 2 comes with an ImmerVision Panomorph lens that can capture 180° and 360° fields of view with de-warping, providing up to four times more angular resolution in peripheral areas of a scene than conventional fisheye lenses.
Key features of the MegaBall® 2 include:
- Day/night operation
- H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10)/MJPEG dual encoders
- Privacy masking
- Extended motion detection with 1,024 distinct motion detection zones
- Flexible cropping to adjust image sizes
- The ability to choose PoE or external power
Installation of the MegaBall® 2 series has been made simpler with integrated cable management and a three-axis adjustment. The cameras are available in wall, surface and flush mount configurations, and come in light grey or black tamper resistant housings.
Raul Calderon, Senior Vice President of Arecont Vision, comments: “Our new MegaBall® 2 Panomorph megapixel cameras deliver the ideal balance of performance and cost-efficiency for a wide variety of applications that do not require the precision of our high-performance SurroundVideo panoramic megapixel cameras,” He continues: “Unlike conventional fisheye cameras, MegaBall® 2 Panomorph cameras provide images with clarity in peripheral areas which, in effect, increases their area coverage.”
