The new Megadome G3 and G3 RS additions to Arecont Vision's portfolio

Arecont Vision has expanded the Megadome indoor/outdoor dome camera series with new models, the Megadome G3 and the Megadome G3 RS (remote setup), that are designed to bring new capabilities and easy installation.

Arecont Vision pioneered the megapixel (MP) dome market in 2009, when the Megadome was the first to offer H.264 compression in an all-in-one camera, lens, and housing solution. Subsequent generations of the series have added many important capabilities and refinements, culminating in the state-of-the-art Megadome G3 and G3 RS families.

“The Megadome G3 and G3 RS series include installer-friendly housings with motorised remote focus and zoom for easy installation, while the RS models go even further with revolutionary hands-free setup,” said Brad Donaldson, Vice President, Product Development, for Arecont Vision. “Both of the new Megadome series are packed with advanced capabilities, including bandwidth reduction and day/night technologies for unmatched performance for the widest possible range of customer requirements.

Megadome G3 offers 1.2, 1080p, 3, 5, and 10MP choices to address any application need. All models offer an IR-corrected motorised P-iris wide angle or telephoto varifocal lens with remote focus/zoom for outstanding image clarity and easy installation.

Arecont Vision’s H.264 compression and advanced SNAP stream (Smart Noise Adaptation and Processing) technology reduce bandwidth consumption and storage requirements without impacting image quality in all Megadome G3 models. Optional STELLAR  (Spatio Temporal Low Light Architecture) technology is available in select models for best-in-class light sensitivity to capture full color details in near complete darkness, or with enhanced wide dynamic range (WDR) technology for applications with varied or over-saturated lighting conditions.

MegaDome G3 RS offers 3 or 5MP resolution choices, SNAP stream, models with optional enhanced WDR, IP66/IK-10 ratings, and an extensive list of advanced features. Megadome G3 RS makes installation and setup faster than ever. With remote setup, the installer mounts the camera and installs the PoE (Power over Ethernet) network cable and then dismounts the ladder or lift. The camera’s motorised varifocal lens package features remote positioning, focus, pan (359o), tilt (90o), and zoom capabilities for rapid, completely hands-free setup while the installer is safely on the ground. Future changes or adjustments to the view and focus can be made without requiring mounting a ladder or lift.

By employing the unique MPIP architecture, Arecont Vision cameras do not require the use of common embedded operating systems, nor make use of 3rd party code or chipsets for core features. This approach eliminates the potential risk of hidden backdoors as well as the many other cyber security weaknesses sometimes documented in other camera brands. According to th company, Arecont Vision cameras are unable to be maliciously repurposed for use in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS), network penetration, ransomware, and other cyber attacks, or to be used to spread to malware and computer viruses to other network-enabled devices.
