The SurroundVideo Omni G3 is the industry’s first camera in the multi-sensor product category that Arecont Vision pioneered that now offers no-touch, remote setup.
Arecont showcasing at ISC West
The new Omni G3 series will be featured at the ISC West International Security Conference and Exposition, kicking off in Las Vegas today.
“The SurroundVideo Omni G3 continues the Arecont Vision tradition of being a market leader through innovative new products,” said Brad Donaldson, VP of Product Development, Arecont Vision. “The Omni G3 is the easiest multi-sensor omnidirectional camera in the industry to install, setup, and configure, saving our customers both time and money”.
Arecont Vision continues to lead the multi-sensor camera market that the company first pioneered in 2006.
A single high-definition SurroundVideo camera can replace multiple pan-tilt-zoom cameras or a large number of single-sensor cameras for a wide range of surveillance requirements. SurroundVideo has been proven in thousands of customer projects around the world, integrated with the customer’s choice of leading video management systems (VMS) and network video recorders (NVR).
The first SurroundVideo Omni camera was introduced in 2014, bringing omni-directional coverage in place of a fixed 180o or 360o view. The Omni G1 series was the first to offer 4 sensors that can be positioned independently around a patented, 70+ placement-point magnetic track to cover virtually any angle or view. SurroundVideo Omni G2 followed in 2016 to offer additional ease of movement and faster setup with motorized, remote focus 3-axis gimbals.
Next step in evolution
The new SurroundVideo Omni G3 goes the final step, delivering no touch remote setup. The Omni G3 can be quickly installed on a wall, corner, ceiling, pole, emergency call box, or other structure. The camera is then connected to a single PoE (Power over Ethernet) IP network cable.
The installer can then dismount from the ladder or lift, and connect to the camera’s integrated webpage over the network for setup. 180o, 270o, or 360o preset views can be selected, or the installer can adjust and position each of the sensors remotely, including remote focus, zoom, and tilt.
New presets can also be saved, so that the view can be completely changed when needed. For example, a stadium may have different viewing requirements for a sporting event versus a concert. The user can select the appropriate preset, and the camera will move the sensors to that new perspective. The camera can then be returned to the original view just as easily.
This can all be done without requiring the time and cost of manually mounting a ladder or lift to remove and then replace the dome bubble after adjusting the aim of the 4 sensors, or shifting the entire camera.
All SurroundVideo Omni cameras feature four individual day/night mechanical IR cut filters for the highest image quality at any time of day. Select 12MP models offer Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) up to 100dB at full resolution for challenging or varied lighting conditions.
All SurroundVideo series 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. SurroundVideo Omni G3 adds support for SNAPstream (Smart Noise Adaptation and Processing) technology, bringing further reduced camera bandwidth consumption without impacting image quality.
The entire Made in USA SurroundVideo series is subjected to and certified by rigorous dust, water, and impact tests with strict manufacturing quality control. With IP66 and IK-10 ratings and an extended operating temperature range, SurroundVideo Omni G3 cameras are ideal for indoor, outdoor, and vandal-prone applications.
