Vicon introduces 12MP Sentinel Camera

Fareham, UK (23rd January 2015) The 12MP Sentinel offers approximately 6 times the pixels in a standard HD 1080p camera, enabling greatly increased pixel density for the same scene. The camera is ideal for displaying real-time video on the new generation of UHD/4K monitors. Users can install fewer cameras to capture a wider field-of-view while maintaining the original pixel density.

With its dual-core CPU, the 12MP Sentinel has unique on-camera processing capabilities to deliver multi-streaming forensic quality video with enhanced image processing and noise correction, while also running analytics directly on the camera before streaming video over the network in H.264 or
MPEG format.

Features include:

  • Supports H.264 streaming up to 4Kx3K resolution (12MP)
  • 30 fps @ UHD (3840 x 2160), 15 fps @ 12MP
  • 4.5-10mm lens with remote-focus
  • Integrated electrical junction box for simple installation
  • Lightgrabber technology for enhanced low light performance
  • USB drive supported in junction box
  • Dual-core CPU supports edge recording and analytics
  • 12-24VDC, 24VAC, or PoE (8W)
  • Aluminium housing with IP66 rating
  • Heater

Note: To use this camera in ViconNet VMS, you must upgrade to the latest version 7.1.


These models can be ordered now. Vicon will begin shipping in February 2015.
