Arecont Vision Overview

Arecont Vision is a megapixel camera specialist, with an extremely poor reputation, having topped integrator surveys for Worst IP Camera 2011, Worst IP Camera 2014 and Worst Manufacturer Support. Their most standout product offering is their multi-imager SurroundVideo series, including the Omni. In 2014, Arecont raised $80 million in debt to cash out their executives and shareholders.
