Vivotek says the VC9101 split-type camera system incorporates a video core capable of outputting 5MP 360° fisheye images or 4MP 16:9 aspect ratio images.
SAN JOSE, Calif. – Vivotek, a global manufacturer of IP surveillance products, announces the release of its new VC9101 high-performance split camera system.
The West Coast-based company says its latest product is NDAA-compliant and can reside in indoor and outdoor locations.
“VC9101’s low-profile design, rich functionality, and ability to flexibly fit into even the tightest of spaces, make this camera the ideal solution for indoor or covert surveillance of ATMs, banks, stores and offices,” said David Liu, president of Vivotek USA, Inc.
“The VC9101 has a separate camera unit [CU series] and video core design, allowing the small camera (with a 5 meter long cable) to be easily and flexibly installed in any decoration or interior design, thus maintaining elegant appearances while significantly saving installation time and costs.
Vivotek VC9101 Features Advanced Processing
Elaborating on the capabilities of its latest product, Vivotek says the split-type camera system incorporates a video core that uses a robust processor capable of delivering 5MP 360° fisheye footage or 4MP 16:9 aspect ratio footage.
The VC9101 also features a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) hardware accelerator to facilitate VCA deep learning of the system to be more efficient and powerful. Vivotek goes on to note that the system’s deep learning also provides face detection suitable for most situations.
Vivotek notes that the VC9101 camera core supports a choice of four camera unit types: CU9171-H, CU9171-HF, CU9183-H and CU9183-HF.
Additionally, the company says the system offers a range of advanced features found in its cameras, including WDR Pro, SNV, Smart Stream III technology, 3DNR, and security features such as secure boot, firmware signed and Trend Micro cybersecurity.
Summing up the benefits of its latest product, Vivotek points out that the VC9101 offers integrators several advantages, including:
- Discreet appearance: The smaller camera form factor enabled by the split core/camera design allows for a less obtrusive appearance for aesthetic issues or situations where integrators need to reduce the risk of opportunistic tampering or vandalism.
- Flexible selection for different scenarios: With a choice of four WDR cameras: the CU9171-H(F) pinhole type and the CU9183-H(F) fisheye type for 180° panoramic view, the VC9101 offers system design flexibility to system integrators. The split type camera system can be used to monitor spaces such as ATMs, elevators; a single large space, or it can provide different types of views, among other possible usage scenarios.
- Greater coverage with simplified installation: The camera unit can be connected to the central unit and positioned up to five meters (16.4 feet) away to allow the small camera unit to be easily and flexibly installed in any decoration or interior design.
- Simplified maintenance and upgrades: The modular design of the VC9101 makes it easy to remove individual cameras for maintenance or replacement. Additionally, upgrades are simple, according to the company, as they only require the replacement of one camera and not the replacement of the entire system.
