Arecont Vision to showcase JPEG megapixel cameras

Las Vegas, NV (March, 24 2010) - Arecont Vision, the industry leader in IP-based megapixel camera technology, has started volume production of its new series of compact JPEG cameras in 1.3, 2, 3 and 5 megapixel formats. On display today at ISC West, these cameras are designed to address cost sensitivities in the JPEG market as well as the size constraints of environmental housings.

"The industry needs high performing, lower priced megapixel camera solutions," said Scott Schafer, Vice President Sales and Marketing, Arecont Vision. "These compact JPEG cameras are ideal for indoor projects and for installations in environmental housings where a lighter, more space-saving design is required. In addition, they function via PoE (Power over Ethernet), eliminating the need for auxiliary power."

Although the compact cameras are approximately half the size and one-third lighter than their MegaVideo(r) full size counterparts, the new line offers identical picture quality, frame rates, image processing and most core functions as the full size units, with the exception of no auxiliary power and no auto iris option. These cameras are available at significantly lower price points, without sacrificing performance.

Equipped with on camera motion detection with 64 zone capability, these new megapixel cameras provide custom programmable resolution, brightness, saturation, gamma, sharpness and tint. In addition to color and day/night models, all Arecont Vision Compact JPEG cameras feature Moonlight(tm) mode: an extended exposure and noise cancelling feature.

Arecont Vision's Compact JPEG 1.3 megapixel models (AV1310 and AV1310DN) and two megapixel models (AV2110 and AV2110DN) hit a new low price point for branded, full featured megapixel cameras. Additionally, the 3 megapixel (AV3110 and AV3110DN) and 5 megapixel (AV5110 and AV5110DN) models establish the most competitive price points for Arecont Vision cameras in the industry.
