Arecont Vision to Showcase Latest Megapixel Cameras at ISC East
Arecont Vision Costar will demo its latest additions to its Total Video Solution line, including the Contera Panoramic Fisheye, EX series dome and bullet cameras, and the Contera Omni LX RS.
NEW YORK CITY — Arecont Vision Costar (AVC) will demonstrate its latest cameras from booth 252 at the ISC East this week. The two-day security industry event is being held at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center here Nov. 20-21.
AVC will highlight several new cameras as part of its Total Video Solution, able to be accessed anywhere, anytime, including from Security Operation Centers, desktop or laptop computers, smartphones and tablet devices.
“Our ConteraIP camera family continues to grow, offering the industry’s best image quality, performance, and reliability at an affordable price point,” says Brad Donaldson, vice president of product development for Arecont Vision Costar. “Each of the new cameras is designed to address customer requests for additional configuration options and features, while leveraging the power of our Cloud-enabled Total Video Solution.”
AVC has introduced multiple new products since its initial launch in July of 2018 as an operating unit of Texas-based Costar Technologies. Among the new products that will be demonstrated at ISC East:
ConteraIP Omni LX Remote Setup Series
The newest member of the adjustable-view multisensor Omni camera series is said to be the most powerful and capable yet. The Omni LX Remote Setup (or RS) indoor/outdoor dome camera brings a choice of 8MP or 20MP models each featuring four sensors mounted in individual, motorized gimbals.
Remote focus/zoom capability with customizable views complement the default 180°, 280° and 360° choices. The compact dome enclosure brings a simple installation design combined with remote setup technology to position, aim, & focus each sensor. Together, these features reduce both installer effort, and eliminate the need to physically touch the camera from a lift or ladders for post-installation view, coverage, or focus adjustments, according to the company.
Standard Omni LX features include image quality at up to 30fps (frames per second) per sensor and full multi-streaming capability.
Enhanced WDR at up to 120db, NightView technology combined with mechanical IR cut filters for day/night use, both H.265 and SnapStream+ technology for reduced bandwidth use without loss of image quality, and PoE support round out the feature set.
ConteraIP Fisheye 360 Degree Panoramic Dome
The new ConteraIP fisheye dome indoor/outdoor camera offers a full 360° image without blind spots at 12MP resolution.
This product is suitable for day/night projects where a multisensor panoramic or Omni camera may not be warranted. Offering multiple dewarp display modes, this PoE camera includes integrated microphone, speaker, IR illuminators and SDXC card slot for onboard storage.
H.264/H.265 encoders and advanced SNAPstream+, SmartIR, WDR and NightView technologies are included along with the advanced suite of AVC single-sensor camera capabilities.
ConteraIP Outdoor Dome & Bullet EX Series
The ConteraIP outdoor dome EX and bullet EX cameras feature AVC’s new Advanced Video Analytics suite and deliver 5MP resolution.
Included analytics are camera tamper detection, intrusion detection, line crossing and loitering detection. An optional additional suite of analytics is also available, including object classification (person/vehicle), object left/removed, and people/vehicle counting.
Each EX model includes True Day/Night capabilities with integrated IR (infrared) illuminators for use indoors or out. Each also includes a motorized varifocal lens for rapid focusing during setup and offers the full suite of powerful AVC single-sensor camera capabilities.
These include a SDXC card slot for onboard storage, PoE capability, H.264/H.265 encoders, plus advanced SNAPstream+, SmartIR, Advanced WDR, and NightView technologies.
All of these new ConteraIP camera series are designed for use with the Cloud-enabled ConteraVMS as part of the Total Video Solution. AVC MegaLab validation and ONVIF Profile S, G, Q, and T compliance provide easy integration with third-party VMS systems when needed, according to the company.
