The Arecont Vision AV20185 180° Panoramic Color SurroundVideo IP Camera (Heater & Blower) is an innovative cost-effective security device designed to deliver videos with unparalleled high-definition resolution of up to 2592 x 1944. The camera's four 5 MP CMOS image sensors combine the images inside the camera so that you get a 180° view of an area.
With the forensic zooming feature, the MegaVideo Camera allows you to zoom in on specific portions of the live recording or after-event video, when simultaneously recording the full field-of-view in HD. This is useful when CCTV video footage needs to be previewed and analyzed in criminal and other legal cases.
Video footage can be stored in either MJPEG or H.264 (MPEG4, Part 10) compression format, which provides small-sized files and uses less network bandwidth. For efficient data management, you can send videos up to 8 concurrent, non-identical streams with different frame or bit rates, resolutions, and picture quality.
With up to 1024 distinct motion detection zones, the camera triggers an alarm if any movement is detected in these zones. You can also protect the privacy of people in the surveillance area by blocking multiple regions of a video in almost any arbitrary shape. The Power over Ethernet feature (PoE) transfers both power and data over a single Ethernet network cable, eliminating the need to install the camera near a power supply.
The SurroundVideo IP camera is encased in a die-cast aluminum chassis with a 5.5” vandal-resistant polycarbonate dome bubble. This enables you to safely install the camera indoors or outdoors and also ensures uninterrupted surveillance in harsh weather conditions. Integrated heater and blower is used to regulate the internal temperature of the camera, enabling it to operate in temperatures ranging from -22 to 140°F (-30 to 60°C).
