New Arecont Vision® MegaVideo® Compact Dual Sensor Megapixel Cameras Set New Benchmarks in Day/Night

Camera Delivers Superior Image Reproduction with WDR and Optimized Monochrome Sensors

Las Vegas, NV (April 2, 2014) – Arecont Vision, the industry leader in IP-based megapixel camera technology, introduced its advanced MegaVideo Compact Dual Sensor Day/Night camera here at ISC West (booth #8045). The unique megapixel camera combines a color 3-megapixel (MP) image sensor with Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) and a highly optimized monochrome 1.2MP image sensor with superior low light performance in a single compact unit. The dual sensor configuration captures highly detailed images in changing lighting conditions by switching from color WDR to monochrome imaging when light levels fall below a specified threshold, or by streaming images from both sensors simultaneously.

“Our MegaVideo Compact Dual Sensor Day/Night camera solves the longstanding challenge of providing continuous high-quality surveillance in changing lighting conditions,” said Raul Calderon, Senior Vice President, Arecont Vision. “By combining the benefits of WDR technology during daylight hours with superior nighttime sensitivity, our MegaVideo Compact Dual Sensor camera offers an extremely cost-effective, high-performance surveillance solution in a very small package.”

Arecont Vision’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 maximizes the amount of detail in both bright and dark areas of a scene.

Arecont Vision’s new Compact Dual Sensor Day/Night camera features dual H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10) and MJPEG encoders, fast frame rates, up-scaling of the 1.2MP monochrome sensor to 3MP to support video management systems (VMS), bit rate control, multi-streaming, forensic zooming, and PoE.

Arecont Vision® is the leading manufacturer of high-performance megapixel IP cameras. Arecont Vision® products are made in the USA and feature low-cost massively parallel image processing architectures MegaVideo® and SurroundVideo® that represent a drastic departure from traditional analog and network camera designs. All-in-one products such as the MegaDome®, MegaView®, MegaBall®, MicroDome®, and D4F/D4S/D4SO series provide installer-friendly solutions. True Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) and remote focus/remote zoom enhance camera utility. Compact JPEG and H.264 series of cameras address cost-sensitive applications. These innovative technologies enable Arecont Vision® to deliver multi-megapixel digital video at IP VGA camera price points.
