Integrated IR dome cameras

Contera cameras are available in five series of two cameras each, loaded with features and new capabilities to complement the popular and cyber-secure Mega camera family.

Single sensor Contera cameras are available as indoor or outdoor domes, bullets, and micro bullets, with choice of 2 or 5MP. Contera 180o panoramic multi-sensor dome cameras offer fast frame rates (30 frames per second) and integrated IR, with a choice of 8 or 20MP models.

Contera megapixel cameras bring new capabilities, performance, and features to the market in an affordable, familiar Arecont Vision design,” said Brad Donaldson, Vice President of Product Development for Arecont Vision. “The Contera family complements the Made in USA, maximum cyber-secure Arecont Vision Mega family of single-, dual-, and multi-sensor cameras, and offer additional choices to our customers.

All models include multi-streaming at full frames per second (fps), defog technology, digital image stabilisation, industry-standard security and network protocol support, and are ONVIF G and S compliant.

Most models include both Smart IR that adapts to object distance and angle and an SD card slot for onboard storage. Outdoor models are compliant with the IP66 environmental and IK-10 shock-resistance standards.
