Arecont Vision® MegaVideo® Flex Compact Camera Series for Constrained or Discreet Locations Unveiled at ISC West

®, the industry leader in IP-based
megapixel camera technology
, announces the new MegaVideo® Flex
multi-megapixel ultra-small, ultra-flexible camera series. MegaVideo
Flex will be displayed with several examples of the wide range of
possible applications that this unique camera offers at ISC West in the
Arecont Vision booth, #8045, Sands Convention Center, Las Vegas, April
6-8, 2016.

The MegaVideo Flex camera series offers a cost-effective security
solution for installations that require a more flexible and compact
design than other professional security cameras deliver. Due to its
small footprint, the MegaVideo Flex easily fits into a wide range of
areas and settings, such as ATMs (automatic teller machines) and other
tight or discreet spaces while delivering megapixel (MP) high definition
video. The stylish indoor/outdoor camera series features a choice of
1.2MP, 1080p, 3MP, and 5MP resolution models.

MegaVideo Flex is a true day/night camera that is ideal for applications
with variable lighting conditions regardless of time of day. NightView™
technology in the 1.2MP model ensures coverage in areas where little
light is present. Two optional IR (infrared) illuminators may be added
to further increase video clarity. Applications with bright or
over-saturated lighting conditions can be addressed with models that
include Wide Dynamic Range (WDR).

The MegaVideo Flex is composed of the camera sensor, metal mounting
bracket, USB cable, and the main camera unit.

Installation is quite simple. The camera sensor can be surface mounted
via the supplied mounting bracket or flush mounted into a ceiling or
wall with the two (2) included fastening nuts. No additional mounting
accessories are required.

For added flexibility, the USB cable allows the camera sensor to be
mounted in one area while the main unit is up to 40 feet (12m) away. The
camera includes both white and black trim rings so that the small sensor
further blends into many environments.

The main unit features two (2) USB ports to allow the addition of one or
two IR illuminators. Each illuminator includes six (6) infrared 850nm
LEDs to provide up to 49 feet (15m) of night vision capability.

MegaVideo Flex cameras are enhanced with the convenience of remote
focus. This facilitates both the ease of initial setup and future
adjustments, reducing time required to be spent at the jobsite. The
ability to change lenses brings additional flexibility in application
uses. Options include 2.1, 2.8, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 16mm lenses.

“The MegaVideo Flex will be very attractive to customers looking for a
professional megapixel camera that delivers optimum performance yet can
fit into tight spaces and discreet environments,” said Brad Donaldson,
Vice President of Product Development, Arecont Vision. “With smaller
cameras typically more of a challenge to adjust, the remote focus
capability of the MegaVideo Flex provides the convenience of remotely
focusing the camera both for initial installation and for changes in the

MegaVideo Flex 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. Power can
be supplied via a single Power-over Ethernet (PoE) compliant network
cable, or powered from a 12-48V DC/24V AC power supply. The camera
interface allows for an intuitive, fast, and easy configuration. The AV
IP Utility tool allows users to quickly configure or update one or
multiple cameras simultaneously.

customer projects around the world, integrated with leading video
