Arecont Vision, the provider of IP-based megapixel camera technology, announces that its IP megapixel surveillance cameras meet the requirements of the April 18, 2017 Presidential Executive Order on Buy American and Hire American for manufactured goods. Arecont Vision is the only US-owned company making video surveillance cameras in the country.

Executive order for manufactured goods

“Arecont Vision is an American company that designs and builds customer-proven, award-winning megapixel surveillance cameras here in the USA, qualifying under President Trump’s recent Executive Order for manufactured goods,” said Scott Schafer, Executive Vice President, Arecont Vision. “The company has contributed more to the development of the megapixel camera industry through innovative design, outstanding quality, and advanced capabilities than any other vendor. Arecont Vision cameras are used by government and commercial customers for surveillance projects across a wide range of requirements.”

Arecont Vision designs and assembles its products at the company’s headquarters and R&D facilities in Glendale, CA. The company-designed circuit boards used in each camera are built in Los Angeles county with a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) integrated circuit at their core. The FPGA is used to run the Arecont Vision-developed Massively Parallel Image Processing (MPIP) architecture, which is now in its 5th generation of development. The MPIP architecture reduces the cybersecurity risks and hidden backdoors that common embedded operating systems and licensed code or chipsets may provide in surveillance cameras from other vendors. The architecture also extends the useful life of Arecont Vision cameras by allowing new features and security updates to be applied after installation for increased customer value and protection.

Arecont Vision cameras

Arecont Vision builds a comprehensive selection of American-made, feature-rich, single- and multi-sensor megapixel surveillance cameras for indoor/outdoor and day/night use. Arecont Vision cameras are integrated with the industry’s leading Video Management System (VMS) and Network Video Recorder (NVR) platforms to deliver world class video surveillance systems that address customer requirements.

Arecont Vision cameras are available from the industry’s leading security systems integrators and dealers, and are proven in hundreds of thousands of government and commercial video surveillance projects.
