New IP-based megapixel camera technology delivers color images in near total darkness

At ISC West 2014, Arecont Vision unveiled its new STELLAR technology.

At ISC West 2014 in Las Vegas, Arecont Vision, an expert in IP-based megapixel camera technology, has unveiled its new STELLAR (Spatio Temporal Low Light Architecture) technology, which the company says dramatically increases low light performance to capture color images in near total darkness.

The new technology will initially be available in Arecont Vision’s MegaDome 2 all-in-one megapixel cameras. Performance features include extreme light sensitivity, spatio temporal noise reduction, adaptive contrast enhancement and motion blur reduction, as well as a low bit rate to conserve valuable bandwidth and storage space.

“Arecont Vision continues to develop new technologies and products that provide unique solutions to address challenging security imaging applications,” comments Dr. Sri Rama Prasanna Pavani, VP of Engineering, Arecont Vision. “Our new STELLAR technology includes patent pending algorithms as well as sensor and optical improvements that enhance low light sensitivity and performance of megapixel cameras.”

Arecont Vision is demonstrating the STELLAR technology in a special darkroom located in its ISC West exhibit (booth #8045) so that visitors can get a first-hand look at the remarkable low light performance the new technology delivers.
