AV Costar close to release of Omni adjustable LX series

Chicago, Il (USA)

Arecont Vision Costar recently released several advanced surveillance cameras at the GSX 2019 show in Chicago, Illinois last week. The new models are all part of the company’s Total Video Solution, and include the Contera IP outdoor dome EX and bullet EX cameras, the new Contera IP fisheye dome indoor/outdoor camera and the omni-directional multi-sensor megapixel LX camera series.

Featuring Arecont Vision Costar’s new Advanced Video Analytics suite, each high-performance EX model delivers 5MP resolution. Included analytics are camera tamper detection, intrusion detection, line crossing, and loitering detection. An optional additional suite of analytics is also available, including object classification (person/vehicle), object left/removed, and people/vehicle counting.

The new Contera IP fisheye dome indoor/outdoor camera is a compact, very low-profile single-sensor dome camera offering a full 360-degree image without blind spots at 12MP resolution. This is designed as an affordable panoramic camera with advanced technology including a mechanical IR cut filter for true day/night use, and is suitable for projects where a multi-sensor panoramic or Omni camera may not be warranted.

Arecont Vision Costar is also nearing the planned release of the newest member of the award-winning Omni adjustable-view camera family, the LX series. The company first pioneered this technology for the security industry beginning in 2014, with 4 individual megapixel sensors mounted in multi-axis gimbals in a single dome. This allows the sensors to be independently moved 360 degrees to virtually any position, and offers coverage of the widest possible viewing range with a single, high performance camera. This capability reduces cost and complexity for many projects, by reducing the number of cameras, cabling, and VMS licensing required while delivering improved, non-stop, high resolution video coverage.

Each motorised sensor gimbal in the upcoming Contera IP Omni LX Remote Setup (RS) camera is equipped with a varifocal lens for time-saving hands-free setup. Simply mount the camera, connect the IP cable, and then remotely configure the device from anywhere on the network. Omni LX preset selections offer 360, 270, or 180o fields of view, and additional views can be set and saved by the user.

The PoE-supporting Omni LX offers a choice of 8 or 20MP models capable of streaming video at up to 30fps (frames per second) with outstanding video quality for indoor/outdoor use, during both day and night conditions. The camera offers ONVIF Profile S, G, Q, and T compliant.
