The Arecont Vision AV2125IR 1080p Day/Night H.264 MegaView IP Camera with IR Illuminator is an all-in-one innovative security device designed to record high-quality videos with resolution up to 1920 x 1080. With its 2.07 MP CMOS sensor, the camera can capture excellent imagery of the surveillance area at up to 32 fps. To enhance its vision at night, the camera is equipped with 48 IR LEDs (effective up to 82' / 25 m) for capturing clear images even in complete darkness. This makes the camera suitable for round-the-clock surveillance.
Featuring Day/Night functionality with removable IR filter operation, the camera switches between color and B&W as per changes in the ambient lighting, ensuring accurate color reproduction in daylight and enhanced B&W images at night. With the forensic zooming feature, the MegaView Camera allows you to zoom in for post-event investigations 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. The latter uses less network bandwidth and ensures that your file size is small, without compromising on quality. For efficient data management, you can send videos using 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. In addition, you can 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 (PoE) feature transfers both power and data over a single Ethernet network cable, eliminating the need to hard-wire the camera or use a separate power supply. An integrated heater and blower is used to regulate the internal temperature of the camera, enabling it to operate in temperatures ranging from -40 to 140°F (-40 to 60°C).
