Feature-Loaded Dome Camera.

SNAPstream, STELLAR, and More.

The MegaDome® 2 IP megapixel (MP) camera family is loaded with features and options. With SNAPstream technology for low bandwidth, groundbreaking STELLAR low light technology, 4K, Wide Dynamic Range options, True Day/Night, IR, image down scaling, and CorridorView to name a few of the many standout features included, MegaDome 2 has an adaptation for almost any environment or scenario.

Latest product release

Up to 10 Megapixel Resolution.

Arecont Vision® megapixel technology delivers superior image quality and reduces overall system costs by covering larger areas with fewer cameras. An area typically requiring multiple fixed cameras can be replaced with a single MegaDome series camera. A 10 megapixel MegaDome 2 is roughly 30 times the resolution of a VGA analog camera. While using efficient H.264 video compression to manage bandwidth and keep storage requirements low, the cameras deliver exceptional detailed video without sacrificing image quality.

SNAPstream Technology

SNAPstream technology, or Smart Noise Adaption and Processing, reduces bandwidth without sacrificing image quality. This breakthrough technology adapts to changes in the scene on the fly, and only pushes through necessary information, meaning that MegaDome 2 cameras do not use excessive bandwidth.

Remote Focus & Zoom.

MegaDome 2 cameras can be installed without locally adjusting the focus or zoom of the lens. Remote focus and zoom can be controlled through the camera webpage, or through industry leading video management system (VMS) platforms.

Dual Mode.

MegaDome 2 10MP models can run at either 10MP or 1080p thanks to its dual mode functionality. The latter mode benefits from the ability to run at a smooth 30 frames per second.

STELLAR Technology.

1.2MP MegaDome 2 cameras with STELLAR (Spatio Temporal Low Light Architecture) technology offers detailed color imaging in near complete darkness. This advanced feature has best-in-class light sensitivity that captures details in extreme low-light at an incredibly high frame rate. STELLAR performs algorithms to collect relevant information from multiple video frames to reduce both noise and motion blur as new video is recorded, resulting in reduced storage requirements and excellent image quality.

Telephoto Lens Option.

In addition to the standard wide angle lens, MegaDome 2 cameras have the option of telephoto lens models to cope with farther mounting distances from areas where high detail is required, such as a vehicle entrance from across a large retail store parking lot.

IR Illuminator.

MegaDome 2 cameras have the option of a powerful IR illuminator with 24 850nm LEDs. When active in the dark, there is almost no visible glow from Arecont Vision IR LEDs. Wide angle and telephoto lens models have a 50ft (15m) and 120ft (36m) LED range respectively.

Additional Features and Options.

P-Iris Control for Automatic Image Clarity

MegaDome 2 IP megapixel cameras feature a precision iris or “P-iris” lens to ensure the best possible depth of field and image clarity for precise performance from the sensor.

Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)

For applications with strong backlighting or reflections from wet or shiny flooring, wide dynamic range technology is available on select 1080p and 3MP MegaDome 2 cameras. Arecont Vision WDR cameras deliver a dynamic range of up to 100db at full resolution and maximum frame rates producing clear images in challenging lighting conditions by maximizing the amount of detail in both bright and dark areas of a scene.

True Day/Night Low Light Technology

As part of their superior True Day/Night operation, MegaDome series cameras include low-light enhancing technology with a mechanical IR (infrared) cut filter. True Day/Night capability automatically switches from color to black and white operation to increase sensitivity and image clarity at night or in unlit spaces.

Pixel Binning

Binning technology, used in parallel with True Day/Night functionality, sums the light value of 4 pixels into 1 larger pixel yielding much better image quality in low light and reduced bandwidth. Binning is available on 3MP, 5MP, and 10MP models.

Casino Mode Maintains 30fps

For fast-action applications like gaming, where high frame rates are mission critical, select MegaDome series 1080p cameras with Casino Mode guarantee 30 frames per second to capture every detail on even the slightest of hands.

CorridorView with 90° Image Flip

With CorridorView, MegaDome 2 models can rotate or flip the image in 90° increments. This feature is ideal for narrow hallways where pixels are often wasted capturing the surrounding walls.

Down Scaling

MegaDome 2 cameras feature down scaling, and offer 22 lower resolution options from SQCIF to 720p in addition to full resolution of the camera. Down scaling is useful for pulling a second lower resolution stream for client viewing or remote monitoring while the high-detail, full resolution video is archived on the server.

Onboard Storage with SDHC Card Slot

Onboard storage provides an easy back-up or stand-alone solution for storing data. The SDHC card slot on the MegaDome 2 supports up to 32GB of storage capacity.

Impact and Weather-Resistant Housing

MegaDome series cameras are complete all-in-one PoE solutions, meaning that no external power is required to use the cameras. Everything including the sensor board, lens, LEDs, heater, and power supply are all included inside the MegaDome housing for a simplified installation.

Total PoE Solution with Integrated Lens(es)

MegaDome series cameras are complete all-in-one PoE solutions, meaning that no external power is required to use the cameras. Everything including the sensor board, lens, LEDs, heater, and power supply are all included inside the MegaDome housing for a simplified installation.
