Arecont Vision Now Shipping Camera with True Wide Dynamic Range

Arecont Vision today announced the availability of the world’s first 12-megapixel 180° panoramic dome camera with true Wide Dynamic Range (WDR). The revolutionary camera is on display at CeBIT, Hall 13, Stand C57.

In addition to its superior performance under challenging lighting conditions, Arecont Vision’s new 12-megapixel WDR 180° panoramic camera is 25 percent smaller than previous SurroundVideo models. Arecont Vision’s WDR technology delivers a dynamic range of up to 100dB at full resolution and 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 non-WDR cameras.

“Panoramic cameras are superior solutions for general surveillance, covering wide areas with sufficient resolution to zoom-in for details,” said Vice President of EMEA Sales at Arecont Vision, Peter McKee. “By adding WDR to the panoramic view, our engineers have delivered a camera without equal in the industry.”

Arecont Vision megapixel technology delivers superior image quality and reduces overall system costs by covering larger areas with fewer cameras. Four, 3-megapixel, WDR image sensors inside the SurroundVideo WDR 180° camera each provide 2,048 x 1,536-pixel resolution for a total resolution of 8,192 x 1,536-pixels. The SurroundVideo WDR 180° panoramic camera’s dome housing is IP66 environmentally rated and IK10 vandal resistant.  The camera is both ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) and PSIA (Physical Security Interoperability Alliance) conformant.
