Industry Leading Technology
Arecont Vision® leads the way in megapixel video. Our products are designed and built in the U.S.A., and leverage our cutting-edge features and technologies. Explore this page to learn about the thinking behind the best megapixel cameras in the video surveillance industry, and the features and capabilities that our cameras deliver.
Quality Megapixel Resolution
Arecont Vision® megapixel technology delivers superior image quality, increases video coverage, and reduces overall system costs by covering larger areas with fewer cameras. Catching a suspect or car involved in a crime or incident often comes down to the clarity in which a surveillance camera captures a face or license plate. Arecont Vision can dramatically reduce the number of cameras required for projects while increasing image clarity and situational awareness coverage.
Extreme Lighting Conditions
Video surveillance is a 24-hour per day operation. Maintaining a clear and detailed visual through fluctuating lighting conditions can be challenging. Arecont Vision offers several industry technologies to deal with the harshest of lighting environments from intense backlight to low light and no light conditions.
Speeding up the installation process positively affects the total cost of ownership. Arecont Vision offers a number of innovative housing designs and features in both our Mega and Contera series that aid in creating a faster and easier installation experience as well as a precise camera setup.
