Pioneering Multi-Sensor IP Megapixel Cameras
Delivering revolutionary innovation with in-house design from the ground up, Arecont Vision launched the world’s
first quad-sensor 180° and 360° seemlessly-aligned panoramic megapixel IP cameras in 2006. The Arecont Vision SurroundVideo multi-sensor, multi-megapixel cameras can each replace multiple conventional or pan-tilt-zoom cameras. With numerous industry firsts and innovations in multi-sensor, multi-megapixel technology, Arecont Vision SurroundVideo remains the leader with our 5th generation joining the lineup.
The Beauty of Four Sensors
SurroundVideo series multi-sensor, multi-megapixel cameras provide an all-in-one solution for capturing wide area video surveillance while maximizing the field-of-view and reducing the total number of cameras required. SurroundVideo cameras include four sensors uniquely housed in an IK-10 impact-resistant, IP66 environmentally-rated dome enclosure. Models are available in 180° and 360° panoramic configurations with resolutions of 5MP, 8MP, 12MP, 20MP, and 40MP. With the SurroundVideo Omni, each of the four individual sensors are user-configurable to combine different lens options and positions around the magnetic track.
A Seamless Landscape View
Delivering seamless and stunning 180° coverage, Arecont Vision SurroundVideo180° panoramic IP megapixel cameras capture the full horizontal field-of-view.
The SurroundVideo Omni IP megapixel camera demonstrates ground-breaking versatility with its magnetic Omni track design encompassing 73 sensor positions and multiple lens options for endless configurations.
All Four Corners Covered
Capturing a full 360° field-of-view, Arecont Vision SurroundVideo 360° panoramic IP megapixel cameras can be strategically placed to capture important details.
Higher Resolution x 4 Sensors = Greater ROI
Arecont Vision IP megapixel technology delivers superior image quality and reduces overall system cost by covering large areas with fewer cameras with outstanding clarity. An area typically requiring multiple pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) or fixed cameras can be covered with a single SurroundVideo series camera. SurroundVideo panoramic multi-sensor cameras easily capture moving objects throughout the day and night, delivering comprehensive coverage and forensic detail all without the need of an operator. SurroundVideo series cameras are available in 5MP, 8MP, 12MP, 20MP, and 40MP resolutions.
Motorized Lenses with Remote Focus
The SurroundVideo G5 series features a P-iris motorized lens to easily focus each of the camera's sensors. Once mounted, the operator can quickly focus and position the camera remotely. This eliminates the need to adjust the camera while on a ladder. The simplicity of clicking “short range focus” or “full range focus” saves both time for installers and money for end users.
P-Iris Control for Image Clarity
SurroundVideo® G5 IP megapixel cameras feature a factory-installed precision iris or “P-iris” lens. This ensures the best possible depth of field and image clarity for precise performance from each individual sensor. The P-iris lens provides an automatic, precise iris control for applications with varying lighting conditions.
STELLARTM Low Light Technology
Advanced Low-Light Technology for Noise Reduction and Enhanced Color Imaging in Near Complete Darkness. STELLAR™ technology is “Spatio Temporal Low Light Architecture” which allows for color imaging in near complete darkness. Arecont Vision® STELLAR™ technology utilizes a patented algorithm that reduces noise, motion blur, bit rate, and storage requirements. STELLAR™ has superior low light sensitivity, making it capable of covering areas where very little light is present.
MegaDynamic Wide Dynamic Range
In extreme lighting conditions, it can be challenging to capture the best of the brightest and darkest parts of a scene. The 12MP SurroundVideo Series cameras feature Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology to produce clear images in harsh lighting conditions. The Arecont Vision WDR technology generates two images. One is a long exposure for the darkest areas of the scene, and the other
a short exposure for the brightest areas. The camera then combines the images to produce a perfect exposure, revealing details previously unseen.
The SurroundVideo series incorporates a mechanical IR (infrared) cut filter for the highest image quality at any time of day. The true day/night technology ensures vivid images during the day and optimum monochrome performance at night. It instantly switches between modes based on the scene’s illumination.
Impact and Weather-Resistant Housing
SurroundVideo is designed for demanding environments. Subjected and certified to rigorous dust and water tests, the IP66 rating, and its extended low operating temperature range make it ideal for outdoor applications. The IK-10 rated, rugged cast-aluminum dome housing is perfect for deterring vandals since it can withstand the equivalent of
55 kg (120 lbs) of force.
