Arecont Vision® SurroundVideo® 12-Megapixel 360° Panoramic Camera with True Wide Dynamic Range

Unique Wide Area Camera Balances Light/Dark Areas in the Same Scene

Las Vegas, NV (April 2, 2014) – Arecont Vision, the industry leader in IP-based megapixel camera technology, announces the availability of its unique 12-megapixel (MP) 360° panoramic camera with true Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) here at ISC West 2014 (booth #8045). The SurroundVideo 12MP WDR 360° camera delivers superior wide area coverage even in the most challenging lighting conditions. The ultra-compact camera’s unobtrusive design makes it ideal for numerous applications both indoors and outdoors.

“The new AV12366DN 360° WDR panoramic camera is the perfect complement to our hugely successful AV12186DN 180° version released last year,” said Raul Calderon, Senior Vice President, Arecont Vision. “These versatile 12MP panoramic cameras provide clear images from wide dynamic to nighttime conditions.”

Arecont Vision’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. The WDR performance of Arecont Vision cameras represents up to 50dB improvement (300X) in dynamic range compared to conventional cameras.

Four 3MP WDR image sensors inside the SurroundVideo 12MP WDR 360° panoramic camera each provide 2,048 x 1,536-pixel resolution for a total resolution of 8,192 x 1,536-pixels. True mechanical infrared (IR) cut filters optimize performance in low light. The camera’s dome housing is IP66 environmentally rated and IK10 impact resistant.
