The SurroundVideo Omni G3 12MP Outdoor Network Dome Camera from Arecont Vision comes with four 3MP sensors, each with a 2048 x 1536 resolution, for a total resolution of 12MP. With four individual gimbals, each of the sensors can be placed in any orientation around a 360° track for numerous viewing angles. Users can select a preset position to create a 360°, 270°, or 180° field of view, or use the intuitive interface to remotely pan, tilt, zoom, and focus each sensor. The camera also allows users to save up to two custom presets.
The camera uses SNAPstream (Smart Noise Adaptation and Processing) technology to reduce bandwidth without impacting the image quality. It offers improved streaming capabilities and transmits H.264 video to avoid straining the network.
Equipped with a mechanical IR cut filter, the camera assures good color rendition in up to 0.2 lux illumination. For applications with poor lighting conditions, binning mode increases the camera's low-light performance by combining pixels so that more light can be collected. Furthermore, the True WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) of up to 100 dB ensures clear images in shaded as well as bright light conditions.
The camera interface or the AV IP Utility can be used for setup and updates, as can many MegaLab-certified VMS/NVR platforms. The security updates can be directly applied to the camera's Massively Parallel Image Processing (MPIP) architecture that runs on the Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) integrated circuit.
Enclosed in an IP66-rated housing, the camera is suitable for use in both indoor and outdoor applications. The IK10-rated dome housing is suitable for resisting vandals since it can withstand impacts of 120 lb of force. Power can be supplied via a single PoE-compliant network cable or from an 18 to 48 VDC/24 VAC power supply.
