Vivotek reports that by upgrading to the VCA package version 6.6 for its MS9321-EHV 20MP 180-degree panoramic network camera with VAST 2 technology, users are provided VIVOTEK’s Smart VCA package free-of-charge without the need for a license.

The version 6.6 VCA package includes a suite of seven video analytic rules/functions, including intrusion detection, loitering detection, line crossing detection, unattended object detection, missing object detection, face detection, and crowd detection.

Along with Trend Micro IoT security and a weatherproof IP66-rated and vandal-proof IK10-rated camera housing, integrated Smart IR II technology with adaptive IR enables the MS9321-EHV’s 30M 180-degree IR illuminators to adjust to the scene together or individually to provide a better IR image by reducing glaring hotspots and/or underexposed dark spots.

WDR Pro (120dB) means the MS9321-EHV captures both the dark and bright areas of an image and combines them to create a highly realistic representation of the original scene, while combining both H.265 and Vivotek Smart Stream III, the company says the MS9321-EHV can reduce bandwidth and storage consumption more than 90 per cent (depending on scenes) compared to traditional H.264 without smart streaming.
