Arecont Vision IP Megapixel Cameras Deliver High Definition on IP Platform

Cost effective series available in multiple configurations


Las Vegas, NV (September 24, 2007) - Arecont Vision, the industry leader in IP megapixel camera technology, is displaying its suite of megapixel video surveillance solutions this year at ASIS. With a range of products including their unique 360-degree and 180 -degree panoramic cameras, a dual lens day/night camera and a line of single fixed lens cameras ranging from 1.3 to 5 megapixels also available in day/night or mini versions, Arecont Vision's unique megapixel camera series offers real time, megapixel digital video with up to 25 times more resolution than conventional analog or IP surveillance cameras.

"Arecont Vision's innovative line of IP megapixel cameras delivers higher resolution than conventional video surveillance cameras to deliver highly detailed images for critical applications," said Steven Sarfati, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Arecont Vision. "Our unique processing technologies and camera configurations are also extremely cost-effective in that they offer more detailed coverage than as many as 24 conventional surveillance cameras. This combined with their ability to conserve valuable bandwidth and stream faster provides numerous additional cost and 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.

Additionally, Arecont Visions innovative megapixel cameras are priced comparably to standard resolution IP video cameras and are exclusively manufactured in the USA.
