Growth of MegaPixel Analog cameras are governed by 50 year old NTSC/PAL standards with no resolution upgrade path. Compare current analog-to-megapixel transition to that of black-and-white to color. Color video provided more information, offering better ability to identify objects and to discern the details of the scene.
Growth of MegaPixel Similarly, megapixel video offers the ability to dramatically improve forensic quality of the video. MegaPixel technology is quickly becoming mainstream -- Networks are pervasive, storage is accessible, computers are friendly, and the cost has come down. Large-scale IP installations with entire service station chains, cities, retail stores, campuses using thousands of our megapixel cameras.
Previous Barriers Slow Frame Rates Poor Low Light Sensitivity Large Physical Dimensions High Cost
Previous Barriers Large physical Dimensions The cameras have become very compact fitting well in the popular in the industry small domes and enclosures.
Previous Barriers Slow Frame Rates On-camera image processing of real-time multi-megapixel video requires many billions of operations per second. Just to put this in perspective, it would take many modern PCs put together to do the same amount of image processing. This resulted in slow frame rates and high prices of the megapixel cameras that rely on programmable DSPs for their image processing functionality. Advances in programmable logic chips have enabled Arecont Vision to develop an extremely cost-efficient massively-parallel image processing technology, MegaVideo®, that delivers full resolution multi-megapixel images at video frame rates
Previous Barriers Poor Light Sensitivity Megapixel cameras do have smaller pixels leading to less sensitivity than is typical for low-resolution cameras. Innovative camera architectures have been developed to address this problem. As an example, Arecont Vision has a dual- sensor day/night camera, AV3130, that automatically selects between 3 megapixel color sensor in the day time and infrared- sensitive 1.3 megapixel monochrome sensor at night. Using a sensor with much larger pixels under low light conditions allows to combine high resolution daylight imaging with very high nighttime sensitivity. Like other camera makers we also offer more conventional single-sensor day/night cameras based on electro-mechanical removal of IR filter.
Previous Barriers High Cost Camera prices have dropped dramatically due to a reduction in the cost of the camera electronics. Specialized multi-sensor camera architectures also provide a reduction in the cost per area under surveillance even further. For Example, Arecont Vision panoramic quad-sensor cameras. These SurroundVideo® cameras multiplex multiple images over single network connection, taking advantage of the very high speed image processing engine and the flexibility afforded by the IP-based image delivery. The result is the 8 megapixel cameras delivering instant no- moving-parts PTZ at the fraction of the cost of multiple IP cameras that would be required to provide the same coverage
Current Barriers Increased Bandwidth Requirements Increased Storage Requirements
Current Barriers Increased Bandwidth &Storage Requirements Perhaps the only remaining barrier to a widespread adoption is the fact that it does take more bandwidth and more storage to transmit and store megapixel images. While this limitation is quite obvious – the solution is also quite clear. It is well known that most of the camera makers have been working on transitioning currently used MJPEG compression to MPEG-based. The expectation is that complete lines of megapixel cameras utilizing H.264 compression will start appearing on the market as early as Q1, This will reduce bandwidth and storage requirements by as much as an order of magnitude, with more efficient solutions priced only incrementally higher than the current offerings.
Consider Pixels/Foot Detail Matters: More Pixels Equals More Detail Facial or License plate recognition requires approximately 140 pixels per foot NTSC ~ MP ~ MP ~ MP ~ MP ~ 18.5 Horizontal 140 pixels per foot

The MegaPixel Benefit Mega Benefit Simply put, megapixel video is a lower cost and much more efficient way to do surveillance and monitoring. The technology has already matured to the point where megapixel camera price is similar to the price of the good quality analog cameras. One megapixel IP camera can replace many analog cameras while providing the same area coverage, yielding much lower overall system cost. Megapixel video enables important functionality simply unattainable with analog cameras: high resolution archives allow zoom-after-event reducing the need for real-time zoom-in decisions by surveillance personnel and, therefore, enabling one person to handle the surveillance of much larger infrastructures. The effectiveness of surveillance with megapixel cameras is also significantly higher than analog cameras can provide. Megapixel cameras can simultaneously deliver multiple video streams in different format. This allows for zooming on some areas while maintaining an eye on the entire scene – something quite impossible with mechanical zoom optics where zooming implies the reduction in the field of view.
Image Cropping Pixels can be turned off at the sensor Only required data is sent conserving bandwidth and storage Streamed images can be cropped vertically or horizontally. Horizontally Cropped Vertically Cropped Un-cropped
