Arecont Vision®, the industry leader in IP-based megapixel camera technology, is presenting its new generation of all-in-one SurroundVideo® G5 panoramic multi-sensor megapixel cameras. New models include the 5MP SurroundVideo® G5 with STELLAR™ (Spatio Temporal Low Light Architecture) technology and remote focus P-iris lenses. Both standard and smaller form factor versions of 12MP and 20MP SurroundVideo® G5 cameras have also been added, each with double the frame rate of previous models. This is the company’s fifth generation of multi-sensor panoramic camera systems.
The SurroundVideo® G5 camera series delivers superior 180° and 360° wide area coverage and strong financial benefits. “Panoramic multi-sensor megapixel cameras continue to gain traction as the go-to solution for wide area surveillance as a result of their unprecedented performance, reliability, and cost-efficiency,” said Brad Donaldson, Director of Product Management, Arecont Vision®. “With the addition of remote focus and p-iris lenses and delivering double the frame rate over previous models, Arecont Vision® continues to be the leader in multi-sensor surveillance technology.”
The new 5MP SurroundVideo® G5 Panoramic Camera features STELLAR™ Low Light Technology for color imaging in extreme low light conditions. The camera features fast frame rates, while P-iris lenses optimize iris position for better imaging, and remote focus simplifies set-up and adjustments.
SurroundVideo® G5 Panoramic Camera enhancements include standard form factor models with an option for Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) at 12MP resolution to capture useable video in scenes with highly contrasted lighting. The standard form factor model offers P-iris lenses and remote focus, plus double the frame rate of previous models.
More resolution options are also available in Arecont Vision’s new small form factor SurroundVideo® G5 Mini cameras. 12MP models offer options for WDR, and both the 12MP and 20MP models double the frame rate of previous models.
Additional highlighted features of SurroundVideo® G5 megapixel panoramic cameras include dual H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10) and MJPEG encoders, privacy masking, and extended motion detection with 1,024 zones per channel. 12MP and 20MP models offer pixel binning for increased sensitivity in low light applications. SurroundVideo® G5 cameras also feature an IP66-rated environmental housing and a polycarbonate bubble that is IK-10 rated impact-resistant. A new black gimbal offers enhanced aesthetics.
