This new line of affordable Megavideo G5 IP megapixel cameras have been upgraded to include multiple new features including Corridorview, non-integer scaling, Stellar technology, remote focus/zoom, p-iris lens functionality, and on-board storage. The new Corridorview feature allows the camera’s image to be rotated 90 degrees to reduce capturing unnecessary data. This works great for narrow hallways where pixels are often wasted due to capturing the surrounding walls. Non-integer scaling provides the ability to scale images to different resolutions down to 128x96. This flexibility allows users to tailor their system for their specific need; reducing system bandwidth and storage costs.

The 1.2MP models feature the patented Arecont Vision Stellar (Spatio Temporal Low Light Architecture) low light technology. Stellar utilises advanced algorithms to reduce motion blur and noise, while enhancing contrast and generating high-quality colour video under the most challenging lighting conditions – including near complete darkness. In addition to unparalleled low-light performance, Stellar simultaneously reduces bitrate and storage requirements to further enhance the value of the Arecont Vision megapixel imaging solution. The Megavideo G5 includes remote zoom/focus, making it easy for an installer to accurately focus the camera remotely. The new optional p-iris motorised lenses (sold separately) are available in 2.8-8.5mm and 3.3-8.5mm options. These lenses optimise the image for the best video clarity under different lighting conditions through the easy remote zoom/focus feature. On-board storage reduces the risk of losing important data from short network outages and helps reduce network strain from high storage costs due to a local storage slot supporting up to a 32GB SD/SDHC card.

The Megavideo G5 is a standalone camera for indoor applications or can be used outdoors when paired with a compatible Arecont Vision exterior housing (HSG2, D4SO, or Dome4-O). This camera is best suited for businesses that require ultra-high resolution at a low cost per pixel. With a diameter of only 3 inches (7.62 cm), the Megavideo G5 camera is about 70% smaller than many traditional box-style cameras. These compact dimensions make this camera ideal for discrete indoor surveillance applications. It is a cost-effective solution for time sensitive applications, which require a quick, simple install.

The Megavideo G5 is ONVIF Profile S (Open Network Video Interface Forum) and PSIA (Physical Security Interoperability Alliance) compliant, providing interoperability between network video products regardless of manufacturer.
