Monroe police department installs Arecont Vision megapixel cameras

Los Angeles, CA (June 19, 2012) - Arecont Vision megapixel cameras ensure peace of mind
for the Police Department in Monroe, New York. The state-of-the-art video surveillance
solution provides proactive security, protects the department from liability claims and
monitors prisoners 24/7 from the time they enter the police department building until they
leave. Located on the main street in the Village of Monroe, the Police Department is housed in a
freestanding building with open spaces on both sides; a front entrance with limited access
that abuts the sidewalk and a back parking lot with an entrance. Arecont Vision's AV8185DN
SurroundVideo 8 megapixel 180-degree panoramic cameras were installed at the front and
back entrances. The cameras provide wide panoramic views, taking the place of multiple
standard-resolution cameras that would be needed to cover the same area and
automatically switch from color to black-and-white in the evening. The cameras' Moonlight
mode ensures clearly visible nighttime images of the outdoor perimeter.

Indoors, Arecont Vision AV2155DN MegaDome 2 megapixel cameras are installed in the
hallways and in the cell areas to provide high-detail imaging. The cameras deliver six times
the resolution of standard IP video surveillance cameras at 24 frames per second (fps), and
the day/night feature ensures superior images from the cell area when overhead lights are
turned down at night.

“Installation of Arecont Vision cameras at the Monroe Police Department provides high
quality video to enable us to analyze and verify any suspicious activity as well as to support
improved situational awareness,” said Detective Jim Frankild. “It's a very effective tool for our

“Arecont Vision's megapixel camera solution reduced the overall system cost for the Monroe
Police Department,” said Chris Sessa, Regional Director of Sales, Arecont Vision. “Since fewer
cameras were needed, installation costs dropped with less labor and less wiring, and since
the cameras are powered over the network (PoE), no external power was required.”
