Arecont Vision, an industry leader in IP megapixel camera technology, was also among those video vendors unveiling a 4K camera solution with its next generation of multi-megapixel imaging. The company’s new MegaVideo 4K (3,840 x 2,160 pixels) ultra-high definition (UHD) camera provides a total resolution of 8.3-megapixels (MP) at 30 frames per second (fps) for extremely high resolution images.

According to Scott Schafer, Arecont’s executive vice president for sales and marketing, the camera’s exceptional resolution and fast frame rates are ideal for mission critical applications where the fastest and most subtle movements need to be captured.

“The video experience is way different. This is one of those breakthrough technologies. While more expensive than traditional video security cameras, there is a value that airports, casinos and other end users that want high frame rates are really going to like,” said Schafer. “While 4K is still early, we wanted to show people what we are working on for the future.”

The camera features a highly sophisticated one-inch image sensor and fast internal processing that runs quadruple the speed of conventional megapixel cameras, thus providing high-end performance in both bright and low light environments. The high resolution image performance provided by the new 4K camera can reduce overall system costs by covering larger areas with fewer cameras. In fact, one of Arecont Vision’s new 4K cameras can replace several 1080p cameras that produce 2MP images at 30fps.

“Our new 4K surveillance camera’s ability to capture Ultra HD resolution sets a new benchmark in professional video surveillance performance,” said Raul Calderon, senior vice president, Arecont Vision.

Los Angeles, CA (April 15, 2014) – Arecont Vision, the industry leader in IP-based megapixel camera technology, has been selected by MetLife Stadium’s security management team to provide comprehensive, undisrupted video coverage throughout every part of its venue. Arecont Vision megapixel cameras have been deployed to ensure wide area coverage with extreme detail and the ability to electronically zoom into live and recorded footage without affecting wide area surveillance. The best-in-breed video surveillance solution was built around Arecont Vision’s megapixel imaging technology to ensure that the highest levels of security and surveillance are maintained at the facility without impeding the fan experience.

We are pleased that our innovative megapixel imaging solutions are playing a key role in the deployment of this advanced video surveillance solution,” said Scott Schafer, Executive Vice President, Arecont Vision. The Arecont Vision megapixel cameras installed at MetLife Stadium provide coverage of the stadium bowl, gates and plaza areas, with excellent cost-efficiency by using far fewer cameras versus legacy IP VGA or analog cameras. Because the number of cameras is reduced, the system can be more effectively managed. The key attributes to a solution like this are excellent image quality to identify activity and people, frame rates to see the action, Day/Night video capabilities, reduced network and storage expense via H.264 compression and Power over Ethernet (PoE) to reduce power cabling costs.”

The new video surveillance system installed at MetLife Stadium was designed by Corporate Security Services, Inc. located in Edison, New Jersey. The Arecont Vision megapixel cameras are managed using Genetec Security Center, a unified video management system (VMS), which is controlled from a centralized security command center in MetLife Stadium.

The Arecont Vision megapixel cameras that have been deployed at MetLife Stadium including MegaVideo® compact 10-megapixel (MP) cameras located inside the bowl to monitor exterior seating areas, SurroundVideo® panoramic 8MP cameras to provide 180° degree coverage of all entrances and MegaDome® 2 3MP cameras with remote focus, remote zoom and wide dynamic range (WDR) located in the stadium’s security entrance areas.

Arecont Vision MegaVideo Compact Series box cameras are available in 1.3MP to 10MP resolutions with features that include dual H.264/MJPEG encoding, fast frame rates, privacy masking, pixel binning to increase light sensitivity in 3MP, 5MP and 10MP models, extended motion detection grid, flexible cropping and PoE. MegaVideo Compact Series cameras are available in color and Day/Night configurations.

SurroundVideo Series megapixel cameras from Arecont Vision are all-in-one 180° and 360° panoramic solutions that are available in 8MP, 12MP WDR, 20MP and 40MP resolutions. Housed in environmental rated IP66 domes, the units feature dual H.264/MJPEG encoding, true Day/Night functionality with IR cut filter and IR corrected megapixel lenses, privacy masking, extended motion detection, bit rate control, binning mode to increase light sensitivity in 12MP, 20MP and 40MP models, fast image rates and WDR in 12MP models.

Arecont Vision MegaDome2 all-in-one cameras with remote focus and remote zoom are available in 1080p, 3MP, 5MP and 10MP resolutions. Features include an IP66 dome chassis with a 3-axis camera gimbal, dual H.264/MJPEG encoding, integrated megapixel vari-focal lens, optional WDR in 1080p and 3MP models, pixel binning in 3MP, 5MP and 10MP models, total PoE and optional IR illumination, audio functionality and heater kit.

Arecont Vision® SurroundVideo® Omni Cameras Shipping Soon Due to
High Interest and Demand Globally
Unique Design Allows Four Image Sensors to Be Individually Positioned
inside a Single Housing

Las Vegas, NV (April 2, 2014) – Arecont Vision, the industry leader in IP-based megapixel camera technology, announced here at ISC West 2014 the first units of the company’s innovative SurroundVideo Omni cameras are slated to ship in June 2014. First previewed late in 2013, the versatile omnidirectional camera systems feature four multi-megapixel sensors that can be individually adjusted to capture different fields of view within a full 360° range. This flexibility allows a single camera to provide the same detailed coverage as four multi-megapixel cameras with the ability to use different lenses for each sensor.

“Our new SurroundVideo Omni megapixel camera systems provide the unprecedented ability to focus on multiple areas of specific interest within a scene using a single camera solution,” said Brad Donaldson, Director of Product Management, Arecont Vision. “In addition to providing superior versatility, SurroundVideo Omni megapixel cameras are extremely cost-efficient and can significantly reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) by reducing the number of cameras and their associated expenses from initial acquisition through long-term maintenance.”

Popular configurations of the unique SurroundVideo Omni cameras include 270° panoramic coverage using three image sensors and the fourth image sensor that looks straight down. This configuration is ideal for placement on the corners of buildings. Hallway intersections are another popular configuration, as four telephoto lenses can be used to obtain full coverage looking down separate long hallways.

The added versatility provided by SurroundVideo Omni cameras eliminates the need for multiple cameras, reducing overall system costs. Arecont Vision’s new SurroundVideo Omni cameras are available in 12-megapixel (MP) WDR and 20MP configurations. For added versatility, the low-profile camera systems offer multiple lens options from 2.8mm up to 16mm.

Arecont Vision’s SurroundVideo Omni cameras feature Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) of up to 100dB at full resolution to maximize image detail on both bright and dark areas of a scene without lowering frame rates on the 12MP model. This represents up to 50dB improvement (300X) in dynamic range compared to conventional cameras.

SurroundVideo Omni cameras include dual H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10) and MJPEG encoders, privacy masking, extended motion detection with 1,024 zones per channel, and pixel binning for increased sensitivity in low light applications. The cameras’ IP66-rated environmental housing and polycarbonate bubble are impact-resistant IK-10 rated.
