Overview of the Arecont Vision Megadome2 AV10255

This product is discontinued, an alternative model is the Mobotix D16 DualDome

High-end IK10 and IP66 rated Arecont Vision AV10255 IP dome camera with 10 megapixel resolution at 7 fps, true night vision with integrated infrared LEDs, built-in PoE heater, remote focus & zoom, dual codec, Arecont's binning mode for enhanced low light image capture, real-time motion detection and choice of PoE or auxiliary power. Available with auto-iris or P-iris lens.

The Arecont AV10255 10 megapixel camera is part of the high-level MegaDome2 range of tamper-resistant outdoor network cameras, offering very high resolution at up to 7 frames per second. True day/night capability using an infrared-cut filter and integrated LEDs enable highly detailed image capture 24/7, with Arecont's binning mode combining the signals from multiple pixels to further improve low light image capture. The 24 integrated 850nm infrared LED lights provide up to 15m at 40° angle (AV10255AMIR-H) or up to 36m at a 30° angle (AV10255PMTIR-H) night-vision for identification during night-time. Remote focus and remote zoom enable easy installation and make the image quality easy to maintain over time. IK10 and IP66 rated, this durable security camera is able to withstand rain, dust and impact whilst the built-in heater maintains full operation down to temperatures as cold as -40°C.

The Arecont Vision AV10255 provides reliable surveillance monitoring with up to 1024 zones of extended real-time video motion detection and allows privacy masking to prevent the recording of sensitive areas. Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) or auxiliary power options caters for different preferences, with PoE delivering a low-cost, easy-to-install method. H.264 compression reduces bandwidth use whilst maintaining high image quality. The AV10255 is available with either a 4.7-9mm motorised auto-iris lens or a 12-22mm P-iris lens (please select the required lens from the above drop down menu).

Please note: this camera does not come with a power supply, please select a midspan from the above drop down menu if required.
