Arecont Vision debuts dual sensor AV3135 megapixel network camera
Last week at the ASIS 2009 trade show in Anaheim, Arecont Vision rolled out its latest day/night megapixel camera, the AV3135. This dual-sensor IP camera is designed to capture high-resolution video images while providing outstanding low-light sensitivity. In order to capture the highest quality footage both day and night, the Arecont Vision AV3135 features two 1/2" CMOS sensors, a 3 megapixel color sensor, and a separate 1.3 megapixel black and white senor for darker conditions. The black and white sensor has larger individual pixels to provide higher sensitivity in low light. It's also infrared sensitive, which makes the AV3135 suitable for use in completely dark situations.
Arecont Vision touts the AV3135 as the first camera of its kind to offer H.264 encoding for multiple sensor formats within the same camera. This combination provides advantages in bandwidth usage and storage capacity while offering much greater sensitivity than single sensor solutions. With H.264 compression, the AV3135 uses up to 10 times less bandwidth and storage space compared to network cameras using only MJPEG compression.
Another advantage of the AV3135 is its ability to provide digital PTZ functionality with no moving parts. Because of the cameras high resolution, operators can zoom in and out of a scene in real-time or after an event, while recording the entire field-of-view in high definition.
