Examining Vivotek's First Camera in the Supreme Series

Author: John Honovich, Published on Oct 06, 2010

Vivotek released a 1.3MP day/night box camera (IP8151) as their first model in the Supreme series, with 2MP, 3MP, and 5MP cameras yet to be announced.

Marketing materials claim the Supreme series of cameras have better low light clarity by using Sony's Exmor CMOS sensor. We have tested the Sony SNC-CH140, which features an Exmor CMOS chip, but since we haven't tested any Supreme series cameras, we cannot comment upon the low light performance claims of Vivotek's offering.

Warranty for IP8151 Supreme camera is covered for 3 years, where most Vivotek cameras standard warranty is only for 2 years.

The MSRP for the IP8151 is $870 USD. This price is on the lower end when compared to competitors with similar specifications: the StarDot SDH130BN at $899 USD, and the Arecont AV1305 at $1040 USD ($890 cam + $150 lens).  Although, within Vivotek's own lineup, the IP8151 is one of the most expensive non-vandal cameras in their selection.  This makes it a strange addition to a marketplace where consumers associate Vivotek with a reputation of lower cost camera hardware.

The IP8151 Supreme series box camera is available now for commercial shipping. The other cameras in the Supreme series will be announced at ASIS.
