Arecont Vision AV2196 Overview

The AV2196DN MegaVideo Flex 2.1MP Modular Network Camera from Arecont Vision delivers 1920 x 1080 resolution video at a 30 fps frame rate, whether viewing live or recorded/archived video. It uses SNAPstream (Smart Noise Adaptation and Processing) technology to reduce bandwidth without impacting the image quality. The True WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) of up to 100 dB ensures clear images in shaded as well as bright light conditions.

The AV2196DN MegaVideo Flex is comprised of the camera sensor, a metal mounting bracket, a USB cable, and the main camera unit. It can be surface mounted via the supplied bracket or flush mounted on a ceiling or wall with the two fastening nuts. No additional mounting accessories are required. For added flexibility, the USB cable allows the sensor to be mounted in one area while the main camera unit is mounted up to 40' away. For easy identification of events or intruders in low-light applications, the main unit features two USB ports to add optional infrared illuminators (sold separately). Each IR illuminator includes six infrared 850nm LEDs with a range of up to 50'.

The MegaVideo Flex camera transmits H.264 video to avoid straining your network. Power can be supplied via a single network cable or a 12 to 48 VDC / 24 VAC power supply. The camera's interface is designed for intuitive, fast, and easy configuration. The AV IP Utility tool allows users to configure multiple cameras at one time when required.
