Arecont Vision’s 12 megapixel 360 degree panoramic camera’s unobtrusive design makes it ideal for numerous applications both indoors and out
Arecont Vision’s WDR technology delivers a dynamic range of up to 100dB at full resolution without lowering frame rates

Arecont Vision, the industry leader in IP megapixel camera technology, is introducing a unique 12-megapixel (MP) 360° panoramic camera with true Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) here at ASIS 2013. The new SurroundVideo® 12MP WDR 360°panoramic camera produces superior quality images of wide areas even in the most challenging lighting conditions without the aberrations produced by single sensor fish-eye panoramic cameras. Approximately half the size of Arecont Vision’s previous SurroundVideo®360° panoramic dome camera, the new 12MP 360° panoramic camera’s unobtrusive design makes it ideal for numerous applications both indoors and out.

“Our new SurroundVideo® 12MP WDR 360° panoramic camera provides full field coverage using four 3MP sensors for high megapixel resolution throughout the area under surveillance compared to single sensor panoramic products which have a drop off in resolution within the scene,” said Raul Calderon, Senior Vice President, Arecont Vision. “By combining panoramic and WDR functionality, this unique imaging solution continues to build Arecont Vision’s leadership position in megapixel imaging technology.”

Arecont Vision’s WDR technology delivers a dynamic range of up to 100dB at full resolution without lowering the frame rates. By combining long and short exposures in the same field-of view, WDR maximises the amount of detail in both bright and dark areas of a scene. The WDR performance of Arecont Vision cameras represents an up to 50dB improvement (300X) in dynamic range compared to conventional cameras.

Four 3MP WDR image sensors inside the SurroundVideo® 12MP WDR 360° panoramic camera each provide 2,048 x 1,536-pixel resolution for a total resolution of 8,192 x 1,536-pixels. The SurroundVideo® 12MP WDR 360° panoramic camera’s dome housing is IP66 environmentally rated and IK10 vandal resistant. The camera is ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) conformant.
