With the advent of IP based cameras (image transmission over IP versus analog), the field has become littered with many new choices and the specs can be difficult to understand and sort through. Although IP cameras are the newest technology in CCTV security, they are not always the best choice. CCTV cameras come in an abundance of makes, sizes, models, usability and suitability, which is why it is so important to have a company you trust to assist you in making the right choices. Our CCTV experts will point out the essentials, and make sure that specifications meeting your requirements are not compromised. Resolution, position, clarity and lens choice can all affect the image performance, another reason to make sure you have AmeriTel at your side to help design and implement a solution you’ll only have to install once.
Here’s a sampling of some of the most popular cameras we are currently installing for our clients (click on each manufacturer name for their tab):
March Networks’ award-winning VideoSphere PTZ Dome and Fixed IP cameras use advanced video compression technology (H.264/MPEG-4) to stream high resolution video over IP networks. They enable organizations to reduce bandwidth and storage costs significantly and archive higher quality video for longer periods.
Able to support a range of embedded VideoSphere analytics, including PTZ auto tracking, tampering detection and alignment checks, the cameras are ideally suited to IP video environments or for strategic use in hybrid IP/analog systems. AmeriTel carries the March Network line for High-End IP based installations that require the best possible image.
- High-definition 3MP resolution (up to 20 fps@ maximum resolution, 30 fps @ 1080p)
- Best-in-class wide dynamic range (WDR)
- Remote motorized zoom and focus lens
- -40° to 122°F (-40° to 50°C) operating temperature
- True Day/Night (TDN) for superior low-light performance
Clear Images in All Lighting Conditions
The MegaPX MicroDome IP camera delivers a powerful combination of WDR and TDN technology, plus progressive scan in high resolution, to achieve excellent image quality – even in bright backlight and extreme low-light conditions. Its P-Iris ensures images with better contrast, clarity, resolution and depth-of-field.
Quick and Easy Installation
The video surveillance camera’s support for Power over Ethernet eliminates the need for additional power cables. Its remote zoom/focus feature also means you never have to climb a ladder to adjust focal length and focus settings. Instead, you can zoom in on the scene and focus the IP camera remotely with a simple mouse click, saving you time and cost.
Never Lose Video
The MegaPX MicroDome can record to an internal SDHC or a network attached storage (NAS) device to ensure uninterrupted recording during a network outage or server failure. When used with March Networks Command or our 7532 Hybrid NVR, the camera’s innovative Shadow Archive feature re-integrates the “missing” video and audio back into the right spot on the recording server, for complete fail-safe management.
