Camera test: Arecont Vision AV1305DN
- Read Whitepaper
In cooperation with Seetec, GIT SECURITY tests current and new video cameras under standardised conditions in the test laboratory of the SeeTec Hardware Competence Center. The Hardware Competence Center was set up because the data and performance specifications of network cameras as stated by manufacturers are often measured under different conditions and are not always reliable in practice. The results provided a sound basis for planning IP video projects and help to avoid unpleasant surprises. For the testing procedure, video sequences are produced under defined lighting scenarios and are then evaluated. Here, movements in the picture as well as night and backlight situations are taken into consideration.
GIT SECURITY and Seetec did test the IP camera Arecont Vision AV1305DN . Let us have a look at the results:
Arecont Vision AV1305DN
Arecont Vision, with headquarters in Glendale, California, develops and produces a wide variety of modern, real-time multi-megapixel video surveillance systems. The AV1305 1.3 megapixel network camera is a highsensitivity day/night camera with multi-streaming capability, equipped with Arecont Progressive Scan technology. It has a special zoom lens with which, at the same time as the full image, any image section can be zoomed, displayed and archived as a separate data stream from the camera.
The Arecont Vision AV1305DN is a camera with multi-streaming capability, which supports the parallel output of up to eight image streams (H.264 and MJPEG) with a maximum resolution of 1.3 megapixel. The Arecont H.264 series offers an average of up to ten-fold better utilisation of bandwidth and reduction for archiving than MJPEG. The camera is suitable for indoor and outdoor use. For outdoor use it should be noted that in backlight situations, noticeable dazzle and blooming effects can occur.
