Chicago, IL (Sept. 24, 2013) – Arecont Vision, the industry leader in IP-based megapixel camera technology, is showcasing its new MegaView 2 and MegaBall 2 series of all-in-one Day/Night H.264 megapixel cameras here at ASIS 2013 (booth #:1945). Both camera series feature remote focus and remote zoom P-iris lenses to ease installation, and optional true Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) at 1080p and 3 megapixels (MP).
The MegaView 2 cameras are available in resolutions of 1.3MP, 1080p, 3MP, 5MP and 10MP. They offer optional built-in infrared (IR) illuminator LEDs. MegaView 2 cameras come with a junction box and an easy to adjust 3-axis wall mount to further simplify installation. Their bullet style enclosures are IP66 environmentally rated.
The spherically shaped MegaBall 2 cameras are available in 1.3MP, 1080p, 3MP and 5MP models, and come with an integrated cable management structure to simplify installation. MegaBall 2 cameras also offer versatile bracket or dome installation configurations. These remote focus / remote zoom cameras can be installed without having to perform field-of-view or focus adjustments on site. Lens operations can be remotely controlled from the head end. The P-iris lens provides an optimized iris position for the best depth of field and image clarity. Short or full range focus scan functions analyze a region of interest or the full scene to determine the best focus for the adjusted field of view.
“We are pleased to expand Arecont Vision’s popular MegaView and MegaBall camera series. Remote focus and remote zoom make these new cameras exceptionally easy to install which can help reduce overall costs,” said Raul Calderon, Senior Vice President, Arecont Vision. “Including a matching junction box with the MegaView 2 and the MegaBall 2’s cable management system are product details that demonstrate how Arecont Vision cameras are manufactured with the installer in mind.”
Arecont Vision’s WDR technology delivers a dynamic range of up to 100dB at full resolution without lowering the 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. The WDR performance of Arecont Vision cameras represents an up to 50dB improvement (300X) in dynamic range compared to conventional cameras.
In addition to the remote focus and remote zoom P-iris lens, MegaView 2 and MegaBall 2 cameras offer many performance features including H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10)/MJPEG dual encoders, privacy masking, extended motion detection with 1,024 distinct motion detection zones, outstanding low light performance, a binning function for increased sensitivity (3MP and 5 MP models), flexible cropping to adjust image sizes and the ability to choose PoE (Power over Ethernet) or external power.
