Each new camera incorporates surface-mount and in-ceiling mounting options and an IP66-rated environmental chassis needing no external housing.

Combining surface-mount and in-ceiling configurations into a single model simplifies installation and reduces the requirement for multiple models. Both the AV8185DN and the AV8365DN have a two-axis gimbal, providing X-Y (pan-tilt) adjustment as well as 180 degree tilt and 360 degree pan rotation for easy alignment. An integrated heater and blower are provided with the AV8185DN-HB and AV8365DN-HB models.
"Our newest 8-megapixel panoramic cameras are a cost-effective solution for many applications where PTZs are normally used or where multiple cameras are used to view expansive areas. These camera solutions have electronic zoom windows that allow a user to view and record the entire panoramic field of view while simultaneously digitally zooming in to multiple regions of interest ... something a PTZ cannot do," said Dr. Michael Kaplinsky, CEO, Arecont Vision. "These new cameras are a much more cost effective solution eliminating the requirement for an external housing and consequently resulting in a reduction of between 16% and 30% depending on the configuration. Our panoramic cameras have been very popular, and the latest versions enhance our existing panoramic series by adding Day/Night functionality, sensor adjustment as well as a host of installer friendly attributes."
