Arecont Vision® MegaBall® G2 and SurroundVideo® G5 Cameras Shipping Soon

Anaheim, CA (September 28, 2015) – Arecont Vision®, the industry leader in IP-based megapixel camera technology, is preparing to deliver two new advanced camera series. The new series is the 5th generation SurroundVideo® G5 panoramic multi-sensor megapixel cameras and the 2nd generation MegaBall® G2 all-in-one indoor day/night H.264 megapixel cameras. Both families are on display at the 61st ASIS International Annual Seminar and Exhibits in the Arecont Vision® booth (#817) at the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, California, from September 28 - 30, 2015.

“Since we first unveiled these two new camera series, the response has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Brad Donaldson, Director of Product Management, Arecont Vision®. “The high level of interest we have experienced is a testament to Arecont Vision’s innovative megapixel technology that delivers unprecedented performance, reliability, and cost-efficiency.”

The fifth generation of Arecont Vision® multi-sensor panoramic cameras continues to lead the industry with enhanced capabilities and features while offering outstanding situational awareness.  The new SurroundVideo® G5 includes a 5-megapixel resolution model with STELLAR™ (Spatio TEmporal Low Light ARchitecture) advanced low light technology for best-in-class light sensitivity to capture more detail.

Standard and smaller form factor versions of 12MP and 20MP SurroundVideo® G5 cameras each delivering double the frame rate of previous models will be available soon. Enhancements for the standard and smaller form factor models include an option for Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) at 12MP resolution to capture useable video in scenes with highly contrasted lighting. The standard form factor model offers P-iris lenses and remote focus. The SurroundVideo® G5 12MP and 20MP models offer pixel binning for increased sensitivity in low light applications.

All SurroundVideo® G5 cameras feature an IP66-rated environmental housing and a polycarbonate bubble that is 1K-10 rated impact-resistant.  The new black gimbal offers enhanced aesthetics.

The latest MegaBall® G2 Series cameras now deliver STELLAR™ technology for enhanced low light performance. Adjustable IR ensures images always remain clear by allowing users to adjust the angle and intensity of the beam. Images can be scaled to different resolutions to better meet system bandwidth and storage requirements. Another feature of the MegaBall® G2 series is CorridorView™, which allows images to be rotated 90 degrees for increased coverage of hallways and corridors.

The second generation MegaBall® G2 cameras include onboard SDHC card storage up to 32GB, a remote focus/zoom p-iris lens for fast and easy set-up with better imaging, and an optional Panamorph lens for 180 and 360-degree viewing on 5MP models.  The new cameras are available in a dome configuration for surface or flush mounting, and a new bell mount configuration featuring Adjustable IR.

ASIS attendees are invited to visit the Arecont Vision® booth (#817) for a demonstration of the new cameras Monday, September 28th through Wednesday, September 30th, 2015.
