Arecont Vision Introduces 20 Megapixel Panoramic Day/Night Cameras

Arecont Vision introduces the world’s first 20 megapixel day/night panoramic cameras to the market. The new SurroundVideo  20-megapixel H.264 cameras provide higher-resolution 180-degree or 360-degree panoramic views and can replace up to 65 conventional cameras. The new all-in-one models 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.

The new 20-megapixel day/night panoramic camera represents Arecont Vision’s third generation of panoramic megapixel cameras. Arecont Vision first introduced multi-sensor SurroundVideo panoramic megapixel cameras in 2006, and continues to lead the industry in megapixel panoramic cameras and megapixel solutions overall.

“Arecont Vision panoramic cameras enable users to view and record extremely wide fields of view while simultaneously digitally zooming in to multiple regions of interest, which is something a PTZ cannot do,” said Raul Calderon, senior vice president of Marketing, Arecont Vision. “These innovative 20-megapixel cameras set a new benchmark in panoramic video resolution and extend the functionality and ROI benefits of the technology even further. The image definition is something you really have to see to believe.”

The first 20-megapixel panoramic cameras on the market provide a 180-degree or a 360-degree panoramic view using four high-sensitivity 5-megapixel sensors, each offering a 2592x1944-pixel view at 11.5fps, for a total image area of 10,368x1944 pixels at 2.8fps. The cameras use dual H.264 and MJPEG encoders.  These panoramic cameras also can be binned to 1.25 megapixels per sensor, increasing light sensitivity.

The new SurroundVideo cameras offer hard ceiling mount or surface-mount configurations standard, and wall and pendant mount using optional accessories. Models are available with day/night functionality and an integrated heater and blower. The IP66-rated environmental chassis and polycarbonate dome are vandal-resistant and eliminate the need for external housing.

An easily adjustable 2-axis gimbal provides 360-degree pan and 90-degree tilt adjustment. The 360-degree panoramic model also provides plus-or-minus 10-degree (20-degree total) individual mechanical adjustment for each sensor.

On-camera privacy mask enables video to be blocked in multiple regions in any arbitrary shape. Extended motion detection provides a higher-granularity grid of 1,024 distinct motion detection zones per channel.
