Chicago, IL (Sept. 24, 2013) – Arecont Vision, the industry leader in IP-based megapixel camera technology, is demonstrating a surface mount option for the new ultra low profile MicroDome cameras here at ASIS, booth #1945. The new line of multi-megapixel cameras is designed for applications where both high-resolution and a minimal footprint are required.
MicroDome cameras are available in resolutions of 1.3 megapixels (MP), 1080p, 3MP and 5MP with an option for true Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) imaging at 1080p and 3MP. In its surface mount housing, the Arecont Vision MicroDome camera is IP66 environmental rated to resist dust and water. The domes on all MicroDome cameras are IK-10 impact resistant.
“Arecont Vision had offered higher resolution images from smaller form factor cameras with multiple mounting options throughout our 10-year history,” said Raul Calderon, Senior Vice President, Arecont Vision. “The new surface mount housing adds to the versatility of the MicroDome family. Arecont Vision continues to add small cameras that produce superior images for indoor and outdoor applications.”
MicroDome cameras ship with 4mm lenses. Additional lenses are available at 2.8mm, 6mm, 8mm, 12mm and 16mm. All MicroDome cameras use true mechanical day/night IR cut filters for excellent low light performance, with pixel binning available at 3MP and 5MP. The cameras are all-in-one Power over Ethernet (PoE) solutions and provide audio capabilities: a microphone is standard on flush mount models and an audio jack is included on the surface mount models. Casino Mode in 1080p models maintains 30 frames-per-second (fps) or higher.
Standard features of Arecont Vision IP megapixel cameras include a dual H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10) and JPEG encoder, fast frame rates, on-camera privacy masking and 1024-zone motion detection. The company’s WDR technology delivers a dynamic range of up to 100dB at full resolution without lowering 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.
