Scallop Imaging, a company specializing in high resolution, panoramic video cameras, and Avigilon, a company that provides high-definition and megapixel video surveillance solutions, have reported the integration of Avigilon Control Center (ACC) video management platform in the D7-180 camera of Scallop Imaging.
This camera is provided with Power over Ethernet (PoE) and H.264 compression and has the capability to produce seven megapixel resolution over a panoramic, 180 degree field of view. Using HDSM (high-definition Stream Management), the ACC software can create situation awareness and provide accurate details of the images with overall protection at less investigation times and faster response times.
Scallop Imaging’s President, Peter Jones said that the ACC platform can capture, control and store HD, multi-megapixel surveillance video and efficiently regulate bandwidth. Further, the integration of ACC in Scallop Imaging D7-180 cameras can enable businesses to implement the patented distributive imaging technology of Scallop Imaging with Avigilon's video management software.
Avigilon’s Vice President of marketing and communications, Keith Marett said that the company’s partnership with Scallop Imaging demonstrates that Avigilon can easily integrate with other prominent manufacturers. Marett added that this partnership helps users to search and access the video created by the camera from Scallop Imaging.
The imaging task is distributed over multiple small image sensors by Scallop Imaging's D7-180 camera that processes more than 100 megapixels per second to synchronize, merge and calibrate video in real time. As a result, two simultaneous video streams, a video stream having full resolution (5120x1280 pixels) at one frames per second (fps) and a 720p HD full pixel resolution video stream having a situational awareness, non-fisheye, true 180 degree view and maximum of four instantly repositionable zoom windows at 15 fps, are obtained.
