SurroundVideo Omni G3
Omni G3 is the industry’s first camera with no-touch, remote setup in the multi-sensor adjustable-view product category created and still dominated by Arecont Vision

Arecont Vision, the 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Platinum ‘ASTORS’ Award Winner for Best IP Video Surveillance Solution, has announced a new SV2 Multi-Sensor Sustaining Release Upgrade for it’s SURROUNDVIDEO G5 PANORAMIC  & SURROUNDVIDEO OMNI G2 & G3  Multi-Sensor Cameras.

Arecont Vision megapixel cameras are cyber-secure and can be updated with new capabilities as they become available from our Engineering and R&D teams, working in conjunction with our many Technology Partner Program™ members.

SurroundVideo Omni camera Series
All SurroundVideo Omni cameras feature four individual day/night mechanical IR cut filters for the highest image quality at any time of day. Select 12MP models offer Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) up to 100dB at full resolution for challenging or varied lighting conditions.

Participants include vendors of VMS, NVR, PSIM, video analytics, infrastructure, and many more hardware and software products (click to learn more about the MegaLab™ and the Tech Partner Program).

The unique upgrade capability is made possible by use of the FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) integrated circuit (IC) at the core of every Arecont Vision camera, which is used by our 5th generation, in-house developed Massively Parallel Image Processing™ (MPIP) architecture.

Omni G3This same FPGA technology and MPIP architecture are what make Arecont Vision cameras cyber-secure in ways that other surveillance cameras are not.

Recognized for their Innovative Training and Education Programs, Outstanding Product Development Achievements and Exciting New Technologies to address the growing Homeland Security Threats our Nation is facing.

American Security Today was formed after careful reflection of 9/11 and its aftermath when the Department of Homeland Security was established and there was an immediate explosion of new products and solutions for what was perceived as an imminent second attack on primary targets in the United States.

As time moved forward from 9/11 itself and in recent years, the threats to our nation have evolved from a large scale 9/11 type attack to:

  • Domestic and International Terrorist Attacks carried out by ‘lone wolves’ and coordinated individuals
  • Cybersecurity breach attacks against our government agencies, financial institutions and critical infrastructure facilities
  • Unprecedented urban violence
  • Cultural shifts and societal media bias, which make it increasingly difficult to secure our nation in this constantly evolving threat environment.

These current circumstances have put forward another rapid expansion of new ideas, products and solutions to combat these ever changing challenges.

These changes have called for a new generation of security experts in the Homeland Security and Public Safety fields who need real time knowledge of our ever growing threats.

These experts include the Government at the Federal, State and Local levels as well as from Private Firms specializing in Physical Security, Port Security, Law Enforcement, First Responders, Military and Private Security responsible for implementing coordinated security measures to ensure our Nation’s Security and improve Public Safety.

Together, each of these entities work together seamlessly on the front lines of protecting our communities, to ‘Keep our Nation Secure, One City at a Time.’

AST focuses on Homeland Security and Public Safety Breaking News, the Newest Initiatives and Hottest Technologies in Physical & IT Security, essential to meeting today’s growing security challenges.
