Arecont Vision unveils mini-panoramic surveillance cameras

Nov. 29, 2016
Arecont Vision has released its SurroundVideo G5 Mini Panoramic Camera series.

Arecont Vision, a specialist in IP-based megapixel camera technology, has expanded its SurroundVideo panoramic indoor/outdoor camera series with fifth generation models that deliver important new features in a smaller size. The compact SurroundVideo G5 Mini cameras are the latest addition to the SurroundVideo multi-sensor panoramic family. The SurroundVideo panoramic cameras provide four integrated lenses in either 180º or 360º configurations. The new SurroundVideo G5 Mini panoramic camera series delivers 12- and 20-megapixel (12 or 20MP) resolution at double the frame rate of previous models. The G5 Mini is also approximately 50% smaller than previous SurroundVideo models.

In 2006, Arecont Vision pioneered the industry’s first multi-sensor panoramic megapixel cameras and has maintained its market leadership through continued innovation and development. According to the company, not only can a single, high definition SurroundVideo camera replace multiple pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) or fixed-view cameras, but it does so while enhancing video coverage and situational awareness. Even more important is that reducing the number of cameras through the use of SurroundVideo lessens both project costs and complexity. Users can view each sensor of a SurroundVideo G5 Mini megapixel camera individually or cumulatively in a full 180- or 360-degree panoramic view. SurroundVideo panoramic cameras are factory-aligned with a slight image overlap as a means to ensure that nothing is ever missed in the field of view. 12MP WDR-equipped models offer up to 100dB at full resolution for an optimal image, even in extremely varied lighting conditions. SurroundVideo cameras additionally feature four individual day/night mechanical IR cut filters in order to provide the highest image quality at any time of day.

“Arecont Vision SurroundVideo multi-sensor megapixel cameras continue to be the go-to solution for knowledgeable systems integrators around the world due to the demonstrated performance, proven reliability, and outstanding cost-efficiency of the entire series,” said Brad Donaldson, Arecont Vision’s VP of Product Development. “The smaller size of the new SurroundVideo G5 Mini models, combined with double the frame rate of earlier models, will significantly benefit our customers.”

The SurroundVideo series cameras also offer advanced streaming capabilities, notes the company. They are designed on the Arecont Vision highly efficient H.264 encoding platform to deliver high quality video without straining the network. Power can be supplied by either a single Power-over Ethernet (PoE) compliant network cable, or by an 18-48V DC/24V AC power supply. The camera interface allows for intuitive, fast, and easy configuration, while the convenient AV IP Utility tool enables users to quickly configure or update one or multiple cameras simultaneously.

The SurroundVideo cameras are integrated with the industry’s leading video management systems (VMS) and network video recorders (NVR) through the Arecont Vision Technology Partner Program and its MegaLab testing facility and knowledge center. The result is the best-possible integration for surveillance projects, and most Technology Partner Program VMS/NVR members further reduce project costs by charging only a single camera license for a four-sensor SurroundVideo camera.

Made in the USA, the SurroundVideo series is currently in its fifth generation, with tens of thousands of successful customer installations around the globe. SurroundVideo cameras are typically mounted on walls, ceilings, rooftops, corners, light poles, and emergency call boxes. The entire SurroundVideo series is subjected to, and certified by, rigorous dust, water, and impact tests while under strict manufacturing quality control.
