The Arecont SurroundVideo Omni is one of the most novel new camera offerings in the past few years.
Like their 180 and 360 predecessors, the Omni supports 4 imagers / cameras inside. The major advance is that the imagers can now be repositioned and the lenses can be changed.
Below is a screenshot from our test, showing us repositioning an imager inside the Omni:
However, many are reluctant given Arecont's poor track record / reputation.
We bought the 12MP Omni model, the AV12176DN, and tested it in a variety of scenes to see if it was worth it plus to know the following:
- How does it perform in WDR and low light?
- How does it compare to fisheye panoramics?
- What applications does this camera best fit?
