Arecont Vision Brings High Definition Surveillance to an IP Platform

Cost effective video surveillance solution saves bandwidth, streams faster


Las Vegas, NV (September 24, 2007) - Arecont Vision, the leader in IP-based high definition megapixel video surveillance solutions, is showing their line of fixed megapixel cameras this year at ASIS. Comprised of four cameras, the line ranges from 1.3 to 5 megapixels and offers real time high resolution digital video surveillance with up to 16.4 times more resolution than analog surveillance cameras.

"Arecont Vision's IP megapixel cameras deliver the high resolution images needed to identify events and individuals," said Steven Sarfati, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Arecont Vision. "Our unique technologies are cost-effective, stream faster and conserve valuable bandwidth, offering significant operational advantages."

Images from ArecontÄ…s fixed cameras can be cropped to a 16 x 9 aspect ratio and scaled to 1080p or 720p for a true High Definition format. Up to four virtual cameras can be streamed by selecting regions of interest and acquiring them as separate video streams. Resolution is fully controllable; it is possible to stream full resolution or scale less in order to conserve bandwidth. It is also possible to stream full field of view decimated images in parallel with un-decimated windows of interest. With support for compliant Power-over-Ethernet (POE) and auto-iris control functionality, these cameras deliver full motion progressive scan resolution and are priced comparably to analog video cameras.

Based on Arecont Vision's proprietary massively-parallel MegaVideo technology, ArecontÄ…s fixed cameras have Ultra Forensic Zooming offering the ability to zoom after the event, up to 96X compared to standard IP cameras from high definition digital archives with simultaneous viewing of zoomed and full field of view images.

The Arecont Vision fixed camera line includes:

The AV1300 1.3 Megapixel IP Camera has a frame rate of 30 fps @ Resolution 1,280 x 1,024 and is sensitive to 0.1 lux @ F1.4. Full resolution 1.3 megapixel or quarter resolution 4CIF can be streamed. This provides an easy upgrade path for today's standard IP camera users with the flip of a software setting.

The AV2100 2 Megapixel IP Camera has a frame rate of 24 fps @ Resolution 1,600 x 1,200 and is sensitive to 0.1 lux @ F1.4. One of the latest additions to MegaVideo product line, the Arecont AV2100 leverages proprietary patent-pending technology and alleviates the cost and frame rate shortcomings associated with multi-megapixel video surveillance. In addition, the Arecont AV2100 delivers full motion HDTV progressive scan resolution and is priced comparably to Standard IP video cameras.

The AV3100 3 Megapixel IP Camera is sensitive to 0.2 lux @ F1.4 with a frame rate of 22 fps @ Resolution 1,920 x 1,080. One of the latest additions to MegaVideo product line, the AV3100 leverages proprietary patent-pending technology and alleviates the cost and frame rate shortcomings associated with multi-megapixel video surveillance.

The AV5100 5 Megapixel IP Camera is sensitive to 0.3 lux @ F1.4, with a frame rate of 10 fps @ Resolution 2,560 x 1,600. Delivering full motion progressive scan 2592 x 1944 video at 8 fps, the AV5100 network camera features massively-parallel MegaVideo image processing architecture capable of sustaining over 6 billion operations per second. High resolution and crystal clear imagery allows the AV5100 to substitute up to fifteen analog cameras, thereby reducing the total cost of installation. Power can be drawn from a low cost Power-over-Ethernet switch, eliminating the need to supply a separate power source.
