At ASIS 2009, Arecont Vision announced the Dual Sensor AV3135 Day/Night camera. The AV3135 is equipped with two 1/2-inch CMOS sensors, a 3 megapixel color image sensor and a separate 1.3 megapixel black and white sensor, offering better low-light sensitivity compared to conventional day/night surveillance cameras.
The individual pixels on the black and white sensor are larger to provide higher sensitivity in low light. The black-and-white sensor is also infrared sensitive, making the AV3135 ideal for extreme dark conditions.
Arecont Vision’s AV3135 features MegaVideo image processing and H.264 compression technology, allowing the camera to use 10 times less bandwidth and storage compared to cameras using only MJPEG compression.
