A new Arecont Vision® multi-sensor sustaining release is available now, and it’s loaded with the features and product enhancements that were most requested by our customers.
Friday, December 8, 2017
Arecont Vision megapixel cameras are cyber-secure and can be updated with new capabilities as they become available from our Engineering and R&D teams, working in conjunction with our many Technology Partner Program™ members. Participants include vendors of VMS, NVR, PSIM, video analytics, infrastructure, and many more hardware and software products (click to learn more about the MegaLab™ and the Tech Partner Program).
The unique upgrade capability is made possible by use of the FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) integrated circuit (IC) at the core of every Arecont Vision camera, which is used by our 5th generation, in-house developed Massively Parallel Image Processing™ (MPIP) architecture.
This same FPGA technology and MPIP architecture are what make Arecont Vision cameras cyber-secure in ways that other surveillance cameras are not. Learn more about these advanced capabilities only available from Arecont Vision from our cybersecurity and industry-leading technology whitepapers.
For customers upgrading their Arecont Vision camera, it’s almost like receiving an entirely new camera for free, with many new capabilities, features, and enhancements newly added and available. Without the expense, installation, and time involved with selecting, purchasing, installing, and configuring a new camera also.
Available Now: SV2 Multi-Sensor Sustaining Release
The new SV2 Multi-Sensor Sustaining Release is now available through the Arecont Vision Technical Assistance Center (TAC).
Applicable cameras in the field can be updated with the new SV2 Multi-Sensor Sustaining Release with the assistance of the TAC.
An earlier Single-Sensor Sustaining Release issued in March of 2017 made SNAPstream™ (Smart Noise Adaptation & Processing) technology available to new Arecont Vision cameras plus 140 older models. SNAPstream reduces bandwidth and storage requirements without impacting image quality. Other feature enhancements and improvements were also made available in that sustaining release.
What’s Included in the SV2 Multi-Sensor Sustaining Release
Exciting new features are added and available for SurroundVideo® G5 and SurroundVideo Omni G2/G3 with the SV2 Multi-Sensor Sustaining Release.
Major enhancements, additions, and capabilities include the following:
- SNAPstream™bandwidth reduction technology
- Multi-stream support improvements
- ONVIF Profile S support
- White balance improvements (WB 2.0)
- New color correction capabilities
- Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) improvements
- Digest authentication
- Port filtering
- Cybersecurity enhancements
- New, updated web interface
Installing the SV2 Multi-Sensor Sustaining Release
New Arecont Vision production cameras built after 1 December 2017 in each of these multi-sensor series now include the updates in the SV2 Multi-Sensor Sustaining Release, and will start making their way into authorized distribution channels. Cameras in inventory at Arecont Vision facilities or at authorized distributors can be field upgraded.
The Arecont Vision Technical Assistance Center (TAC) has the necessary files to update your existing cameras, and the expertise to assist you over the phone with the process for a smooth, problem-free installation of the SV2 Multi-Sensor Sustaining Release.
For customers who have installed Arecont Vision sustaining releases previously, the process has been simplified. An enhanced upgrade method has been developed and is now available using a combined file (hardware + firmware) upgrade (.av), which the TAC personnel will explain when contacted. The TAC team have additional information in order to assist you.
Please contact the TAC to begin the process for validating and then upgrading applicable cameras.
