Merck Pharmaceuticals Installs Arecont Vision Megapixel Cameras at Mexico Facility

Merck Pharmaceuticals has installed an Arecont Vision megapixel technology solution at their new facility in Mexico to help ensure that all activity and incidents are captured in high-resolution video. The cameras produce superior images in both daytime and evening lighting environments.

Using the cameras, operators can zoom in on specific areas of live or archived video to see license plates and faces. The camera can create images that people can look at simultaneously and in multiple formats.

“The quality of the megapixel video image is what sold us and the customer,” said Marco Godina of Alarmas Universales, the system integrator. “Once we saw the images from Arecont Vision AV5105DN cameras, nothing else we looked at even came close in
comparison.”

The cameras provide better overall coverage with higher resolution for superior picture quality. Utilizing megapixel cameras Merck's camera incorporates a motorized infrarer (IR) cut filter and 12VM1040ASI (10mm-40 mm) zoom lens.

Arecont Vision's 5 megapixel day/night camera provides 2,592 x 1,944-pixel images at 9 frames-per-second (fps). Light sensitivity is 0.3 lux at F1.4. The camera uses H.264 (MPEG-4, Part 10) compression to minimize system bandwidth and storage needs. The AV5105DN can also be used at lower resolutions for various frame rates up to full motion. The camera provides full-motion progressive-scan 1,280 x 1,024 video at 30fps, 1,600 x 1,200 pixel video at 24fps or 2,048 x 1,536 at 15fps.
