STELLAR (Spatio TEmporal Low Light ARchitecture) technology that dramatically increases low light performance to capture color images in near total darkness.
Indeed, Arecont notes it uses [link no longer available]:
patented algorithm that reduces noise, motion blur, bit rate, and storage requirements.
In our new round of Arecont tests, we bought 3 Arecont models, starting with the Arecont Stellar AV1215PM-S camera to assess these claims.
We tested against 2 Samsung's Wisenet III low light models, as well as a Hikvision DS-2CD2012, a common low cost integrated IR bullet, to see how it compared in low light, full light, and bandwidth consumption.
Note: This is part of our Arecont G5 testing. Readers should also see our tests of Arecont 10MP G5 Tested and Arecont HD WDR G5 Camera Tested.
