Arecont Vision’s New 4K Cameras Give Integrators a Multitude of Options
Arecont Visions’s MegaVideo 4K, revealed at ASIS 2017, features unique cybersecurity protection and “future-proof upgradability.”
DALLAS — Arecont Vision unveiled its MegaVideo 4K/1080p dual-mode day/night indoor box camera series at ASIS 2017.
The new dual-mode camera comes in two options, with a choice of full 8.3-megapixel (3840×2160 megapixels) for 4K ultra-high resolution image quality at 30 fps or 1080p mode for ultra-fast frame rates of 60 fps.
“The new MegaVideo 4K compact box camera affordably delivers many of Arecont Vision’s most advanced features and technologies while offering our unique cybersecurity protection and future-proof upgradability,” says Brad Donaldson, vice president, product development, Arecont Vision. “Remote focus and zoom make setup quick and easy for the installer, with a range of lenses and optional enclosures to meet any surveillance requirement for ultra-high definition 4K video.”
MegaVideo 4K, like all Arecont Vision cameras, run the in-house developed Massively Parallel Image Processing (MPIP) architecture on a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) integrated circuit.
All core features and technologies are developed by Arecont Vision, and installed cameras can be upgraded with new capabilities and enhancements via remote firmware update.
This means you do not have to buy a new camera in order to get new features. This also decreases the risk of a cyber attack.
Because of its unique MPIP architecture, Arecont Vision cameras do not require the use of common embedded operating systems, nor make use of 3rd party code or chipsets for core features, eliminating the potential risk of hidden backdoors and a range of other cybersecurity weaknesses widely documented in other camera brands, according to the company.
Arecont Vision also says its cameras are unable to be maliciously repurposed for use in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS), network penetration, ransomware and other cyberattacks, or to be used to spread to malware and computer viruses to other network-enabled devices.
