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
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
Arecont Vision is one of only a few providers of panoramic camera
offerings on the market, along with Mobotix and Avigilon.
panoramics from Mobotix and Avigilon are part of a 'closed' system and
only operate using their respective proprietary VMS systems. The AV
multi-imagers have broad 3rd party VMS support, partly because the
camera feeds are simpler to integrate (e.g., do not require dewarping).
In contrast to immersive panoramics, a downside is that the Arecont
video feed cannot be viewed and controlled as a single video feed.
The series is scheduled to start production shipping at the end of the year (2010).
