Arecont Vision unveils SurroundVideo Omni Mini, with twin megapixel sensors for hallways, entries, corners, or any space needing HD video covering two directions simultaneously.
SurroundVideo Omni Mini’s twin megapixel camera sensors are individually mounted in the Arecont Vision-designed 3-axis gimbals for outstanding adjustability-- and each one can look in virtually any direction, including straight down.
Where a full-sized multi-sensor SurroundVideo camera is not required, this new camera provides coverage of areas that require HD video of two directions simultaneously Common uses will be for building entrances, exits, and corridors, for indoor or outdoor corners, or placed above two POS (point of sale terminals) or ATMs (automated teller machines). Of course, there are many other bi-directional applications.
The stylish, low-profile SurroundVideo Omni Mini camera will be available in 2, 4, 6, and 10MP models. The ability to change lenses brings additional flexibility in application use, with 2.1, 2.8, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 16mm lens choices.
The SurroundVideo Omni Mini features remote focus for fast installation, and is a true day/night camera that is ideal for applications with variable lighting conditions regardless of time of day. NightView™ technology in the 2MP model ensures coverage in areas where little light is present. Applications with bright or over-saturated lighting conditions can be addressed with models that include Wide Dynamic Range (WDR).
“The SurroundVideo Omni Mini will be popular with customers who have had to rely upon multiple single sensor or costly PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) cameras to cover a wide range of applications,” says Brad Donaldson, Vice President of Product Development, Arecont Vision. “This small, compact camera will provide outstanding video and situational awareness at a very affordable price point.”
SurroundVideo Omni Mini cameras offer advanced streaming capabilities. They are designed on the Arecont Vision highly efficient H.264 encoding platform to deliver high quality video without straining the network. New Arecont Vision SNAPstream™ (Smart Noise Adaptation and Processing) technology further decreases bandwidth usage.
