AV5255AM – 5 MP Dome

The AV5255AM MegaDome® 2 series network camera is part of Arecont Vision’s full line of H.264 MegaDome® series cameras. This fully compliant implementation of H.264 (MPEG 4, Part 10) provides full 2592 x 1944 megapixel resolution at full video frame rates of 14fps. The AV5255AM camera line provides an all-in-one solution with integrated 5 megapixel camera, remote focus, remote zoom, auto iris lens, and IP66 and vandal resistant dome enclosure. With the features of binned mode, PSIA compliance, privacy masking, extended motion detection and flexible cropping, the AV5255AM is a high sensitivity, PoE (IEEE 802.3af) compliant camera with optional heater configurations. Built with Arecont Vision’s massively-parallel MegaVideo® technology, this camera offers over four times the resolution of standard resolution IP cameras with the ability to output full real-time frame rates and deliver the high quality megapixel imaging for both indoor and outdoor applications.
