Scallop Imaging has introduced new Digital Window A7-180 analog security camera at the ASIS International security technologies conference in Dallas. The security camera utilizes a 7-megapixel staring array to provide panoramic, non-fisheye video over a 180° x 48° field of view.
The camera’s starring array offers the resolution of 23 standard Video Graphic Array cameras. The internal imaging engine of the camera delivers a 180° view and a maximum of three 8× optical zoom detail views. The A7-180 is housed within a NTSC frame that can be used with existing closed circuit television analog networks.
The Digital Window A7-180 offers a number of advantages such as plug-and-play replacement of standard analog cameras. One A7-180 camera can be used to replace multiple PTZ and fixed cameras. The zoom windows are independently controlled with standard Pelco-D commands across RS485. The digital imaging engine’s output can be recorded or viewed across existing CCTV analog networks. This expands both the life and capability of standard analog infrastructures.
