Vicon Launches New Multisensor Cameras With Up to 20MP Panoramic View
Vicon V1000 models are fixed camera domes containing four separate camera modules that work together to deliver a seamless 180-degree view.
HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. — Vicon Industries, a designer and manufacturer of video surveillance and access control software, hardware and components, announces the launch of a new line of 180° ultra-high-definition multisensor cameras.
Designed for providing coverage of expansive areas, such as airports, perimeter security and city surveillance, the new V1000 line is compatible with many industry leading VMS solutions, including Vicon’s Valerus and ViconNet, and does not require video dewarping by VMS software in order to display an undistorted panoramic image, according to the company.
The V1000 models are fixed camera domes containing four separate camera modules that work together to deliver a
seamless 180-degree view. Video can be monitored as a single horizontal image as well as separate quadrants.
Operators can set different exposure settings for each module. The 8MP V1008-WIR-180 camera makes use of four 2MP modules; modules for the 20MP V1020-WIR-180 camera are 5MP each.
Vicon says the ability of multisensor panoramic cameras to replace the need for multiple cameras with a single device makes them a cost-effective tool for large-scale systems that provide surveillance of sprawling geographic areas.
The video content analysis feature detects motion and tampering and can alert operators to their occurrence. The V1000 line features both H.265 compression and smart encoding, for efficient use of network bandwidth and storage capacity.
An IR cut filter provides low light sensitivity and the IK10- and IP66-rated housing delivers vandal protection and weather resistance.
“Vicon’s end-to-end surveillance solutions have long been trusted by cities, airports, utilities and other authorities that have need for the highest quality surveillance of properties and perimeters. We are confident that these customers will find our new V1000 line to be a valuable addition to our company’s offerings,” says Bret McGowan, senior vice president of sales and marketing.
