AUSTRALIAN based security company AFN Security – the leading provider of security solutions and consulting, today announced an Australian-first release based on their long trusted partnership with Arecont Vision, an industry leader in IP megapixel camera technology.
Announcing the world’s first 40-megapixel day/night panoramic camera with a total 180° field of view now available in Australia through AFN Security, who was Arecont Vision’s ‘Winner of Systems Integrator of the Year Award’ in 2010.
Arecont Vision’s panoramic camera enables users to view and record extremely wide fields of view while digitally zooming into multiple regions of interest – something which a pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ), cannot. At 40 megapixels of resolution Arecont Vision saw the value in seeing more with fewer cameras, revolutionising the return on investment of video surveillance systems.This cost effective all in one AV40185DN SurroundVideo® camera with higher resolution panoramic views, can be used to replace many conventional cameras, where mechanical (PTZ) devices or multiple cameras would have been needed to view widespread coverage.
Arecont Vision has developed the market’s first 40 megapixel, full 180° panoramic view camera featuring 3,648 X 2,752 pixel view at 7fps, that’s 14,592 x 2,752 pixels of a total image at 1.5fps. The camera uses dual H.264 and MJPEG encoders for increased flexibility. The panoramic camera using four high sensitive, 10–megapixel sensors can also be binned to 2.5-megapixels per sensor, increasing light sensitivity and frame rate.
The 180° SurroundVideo® panoramic camera offer a standard hard in-ceiling mount, surface mount configurations out of the box, plus a wall, pendant and recess mounts using optional accessories. The option for an integrated heater and blower is available with each unit. The polycarbonate dome with an IP66-rated environmental chassis is vandal-resistant eliminating the need for an external housing.
In 2006 Arecont Vision introduced its first panoramic megapixel multisensor SurroundVideo®. The new SurroundVideo 40-MegapixelWDR 180° Panoramic Camera is Arecont Vision’s fourth generation of panoramic megapixel cameras, with a 360° Panoramic Camera available in Australia before Christmas.
