Security Sales & Integration’s Top 30 Technology Innovations of 2015

Arecont Tethered Megapixel Camera

Arecont Vision is known for bringing megapixel IP video cameras into the security mainstream through innovations in engineering and manufacturing, resulting in lower cost points for megapixel solutions such as the MegaVideo Flex line. Tethered video solutions offer the systems integrator and end user practical tools to apply security to challenging applications. Video camera units can be attached up to 40 feet away from the mothership controller with choices in performance and price based on installation realities. Performance features include remote focusing, IP66 camera sensors, true day/night performance, onboard video storage, a variety of popular lens choices and my favorite option, a remotely tethered IR illuminator that can be positioned separate from the camera. This eliminates some of the challenges with strength and positioning of lighting in tough installations. This product answers two important issues to any integrator: 1) Is it easy for my sales team to sell and get a customer excited about; and 2) Is it easy for my installation team to install this product in tricky physical locations and still get good video results? — Boucherle
