The MegaVideo Flex IP camera series offers a cost-effective security solution for installations that require a more flexible and compact design than other professional security cameras deliver. Due to its small size, the MegaVideo Flex easily fits into a wide range of areas and settings. It is ideal for inconspicuous surveillance applications, for use in automated teller machines (ATMs) and other equipment, for use in vehicles and mobile applications, and for use in tight spaces while delivering megapixel (MP) high definition video. The camera series features a choice of 1.2MP, 1080p, 3MP, and 5MP resolution models, and is vibration tested.

MegaVideo Flex is a true day/night camera that is ideal for applications with variable lighting conditions regardless of time of day. NightView™ technology in the 1.2MP model ensures coverage in areas where little light is present. Applications with bright or over-saturated lighting conditions can be addressed with models that include Wide Dynamic Range (WDR).

The MegaVideo Flex IP camera is composed of the camera sensor, main camera unit, metal mounting bracket, and the USB cable used to connect the camera sensor with the main camera unit. The unique design and product features have already led to MegaVideo Flex being named a “Top 30 Technology” by Security Sales and Integration magazine and the winner of a 2016 Govie Award by Security Products magazine. The camera received a New Product of the Year award from Security Products magazine today at ASIS International.

Installation of MegaVideo Flex is quite simple. The camera sensor can be surface mounted via the supplied mounting bracket or flush mounted into a ceiling or wall with the two (2) included fastening nuts. No additional mounting accessories are required.

For added flexibility, the USB cable allows the camera sensor to be mounted in one area while the main unit is up to 12 meters (40 feet) away. The camera includes both a white and a black trim ring so that the small sensor further blends into many environments.

The main unit features two (2) USB ports to allow the addition of one or two optional IR (infrared) illuminators. Each illuminator includes six (6) infrared 850nm LEDs to provide up to 15 meters (49 feet) of enhanced night vision capability.

MegaVideo Flex IP cameras are enhanced with the convenience of remote focus. This facilitates both the ease of initial setup and simplifies future adjustments, reducing time required to be spent at the jobsite. The ability to change lenses brings additional flexibility in application uses. Options include 2.1, 2.8, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 16mm lenses.

“Prior to today’s official release, the MegaVideo Flex had already been proven in early customer deployments that required a professional megapixel camera delivering optimum performance yet fit into tight spaces and a wide range of challenging environments,” said Brad Donaldson, Vice President of Product Development, Arecont Vision.

MegaVideo Flex cameras offer advanced streaming capabilities. They are designed on the Arecont Vision highly efficient H.264 encoding platform to deliver high quality video. New Arecont Vision SNAPstream™ (Smart Noise Adaptation and Processing) technology further decreases bandwidth usage. Power can be supplied via a single Power-over Ethernet (PoE) compliant network cable, or powered from a 12-48V DC/24V AC power supply. The built-in camera interface allows for an intuitive, fast, and easy configuration, while the AV IP Utility tool allows users to quickly configure or update one or multiple cameras simultaneously.
