Scallop Imaging, a manufacturer of high resolution, panoramic video cameras and Avigilon, a producer of high-definition (HD) and megapixel video surveillance solutions, have integrated Scallop Imaging’s D7-180 camera with Avigilon’s Control Center (ACC) video management platform.
The D7-180 generates seven-megapixel resolution across a panoramic, 180-degree field of view, and features H.264 compression and Power over Ethernet (PoE), Scallop Imaging says. The camera distributes the imaging task across multiple, small image sensors, processing over 100 megapixels per second to calibrate, synchronize and merge video in real time, the firm says. The result is two simultaneous video streams, a 720p high definition (HD) stream composed of a true 180 degree, non-fisheye, situational awareness view at 15 frames per second (fps), and up to four instantly repositionable zoom windows at full pixel resolution at 15 fps; and a full resolution (5120x1280 pixels) video stream at one fps, the company says.
In addition, the ACC software—containing “High-Definition Stream Management” (HDSM) technology—delivers full situation awareness and indisputable image detail, providing faster response time, reduced investigation times and overall protection, Avigilon says.
“The Avigilon Control Center platform captures, manages and stores high-definition, multi-megapixel surveillance video while efficiently managing bandwidth and storage,” says Peter Jones, Scallop Imaging’s president. By integrating Scallop Imaging D7-180 cameras with ACC, users can deploy Scallop Imaging’s patented distributive imaging technology with Avigilon’s intuitive video management software, he said.
“At Avigilon we pride ourselves on our openness and ease of integration,” said Keith Marett, Avigilon vice president of marketing and communications. The partnership with Scallop Imaging is a testament that Avigilon easily integrates with leading manufacturers, he said. “This partnership will allow users to easily access and search video generated by Scallop Imaging’s cameras.”
