PTZ Surveillance With March Networks

Product Profile

March Networks’ new ME3 Pendant IR PTZ camera delivers uncompromising security for large indoor and outdoor spaces, as well as essential features to ensure high reliability, clear image capture and storage efficiency.

Ideal for large-footprint environments such as parking lots, big box stores and transit stations, the camera incorporates electronic image stabilisation and HDR, so recorded video is always crisp. Universal Power over Ethernet (UPoE) ensures redundancy and zero downtime by switching to PoE when a camera loses power. And built-in PTZ auto-tracking uses motion detection to automatically track a person or object, keeping the image centered and in focus. Software updates are quick and easy to apply using the mass management feature available in Command Enterprise software, while PTZ-optimized motion histograms speed search capabilities.

The 3MP PTZ includes a 40x zoom lens to capture objects 25% further away than industry-standard PTZs, and IR LEDs for uniform illumination in total darkness at a distance of more than 650 feet/200 metres. It also incorporates a Low Bit Rate compression mode to improve bandwidth and storage efficiency by as much as 50% when the camera is in its home position.

The ME3 Pendant IR PTZ is protected by a weather-proof enclosure, and generates an alert in the event someone attempts to obstruct or move the camera. It comes with a variety of mounting options, including a 1.5” NPT wall mount and short pendant mount, both with back boxes.
