Arecont Vision Enhances Panoramic Day/Night Camera Models
360-Degree and 180-Degree Day/Night SurroundVideo® Megapixel Cameras Provide Installation Ease and Flexibility
Glendale, CA - Arecont Vision, the industry leader in IP-based megapixel camera technology, introduces a new generation of SurroundVideo® Day/Night 8-megapixel H.264 cameras providing 180-degree or 360-degree panoramic views. Arecont Vision Models AV8185DN and AV8365DN are cost-effective solutions for applications where mechanical pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) devices might otherwise be used or where multiple cameras would be needed to view expansive coverage areas.
Each new SurroundVideo camera incorporates surface-mount and in-ceiling mounting options, as well as an IP66-rated environmental chassis and 5.5-inch polycarbonate dome, eliminating the need for an external housing. Model AV8185DN provides a 180-degree panoramic view, using four 2-megapixel sensors that can be switched between day and night manually or automatically. The AV8365DN panoramic camera provides a 360-degree day/night panoramic view, using four 2-megapixel sensors for a total image of 6400x1200 pixels at 22 frames-per-second (fps).
Combining surface-mount and in-ceiling configurations into a single model simplifies installation and reduces the requirement for multiple models. Both the AV8185DN and the AV8365DN have a two-axis gimbal, providing X-Y (pan-tilt) adjustment as well as 180-degree tilt and 360-degree pan rotation for easy alignment. An integrated heater and blower are provided with the AV8185DN-HB and AV8365DN-HB models.
"Our newest 8 megapixel panoramic cameras provide electronic zoom windows that allow a user to view and record the entire panoramic field of view while simultaneously digitally zooming in to multiple regions of interest ... something a PTZ cannot do," said Raul Calderon, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Arecont Vision. "These new cameras deliver a highly cost-efficient solution by eliminating the need for an external housing, which also results in a significant reduction in overall size."
Model AV8365DN provides simplified installation with a plus-or-minus 10-degree (20-degree total) individual mechanical adjustment for each sensor, enabling removal of the video "dead spot" at the dome bottom or at the horizon. Mounting options include 1.5-in. NPT threaded pipe wall mount (SV-WMT) or pendant mount (SV-CMT), with the availability of pole mount (MD-PMA) and corner mount (MD-CRMA) adapters that are also used with Arecont Vision's MegaDome® line.
The new SurroundVideo cameras are immediately compatible with existing VMS platforms that already integrate with the AV8185 and AV8365 Arecont Vision cameras. Active control of the new day/night feature and electronic vertical alignment will require further integration.
