Arecont's New 8MP D/N Panoramic Cameras Examined

Author: John Honovich, Published on Oct 10, 2010

Arecont Vision has announced new multi-imager dome cameras that offer significant enhancements relative to the existing AV8185 (180 Deg.) and AV8365 (360 Deg.) with the introduction of the AV8185DN and AV8365DN day/night models.  The new models will feature the same 4 imager array, 8MP resolution, and H.264 compression as their non-DN predecessors.  However, the new DN models provide improved low-light performance, a significantly smaller form factor and an IP66 rated enclosure. Previous non-DN models were fairly bulky and required separate enclosures for outdoor applications.

Retail pricing for the AV8165DN and AV8365DN will be 16-30% less than the non-DN models (that have an MSRP from $2800-$3000). The new models will be available in heater/blower models for use in adverse temperature environments (AV8165DN-HB/AV8365DN-HB).
