Participants include vendors of VMS, NVR, PSIM, video analytics, infrastructure, and many more hardware and software products.
The unique upgrade capability is made possible by use of the FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) integrated circuit (IC) at the core of every Arecont Vision camera, which is used by our 5th generation, in-house developed Massively Parallel Image Processing (MPIP) architecture.
This same FPGA technology and MPIP architecture are what make Arecont Vision cameras cyber-secure in ways that other surveillance cameras are not. For customers upgrading their Arecont Vision camera, it’s almost like receiving an entirely new camera for free, with many new capabilities, features, and enhancements newly added and available. Without the expense, installation, and time involved with selecting, purchasing, installing, and configuring a new camera also.
The new SV2 Multi-Sensor Sustaining Release is now available through the Arecont Vision Technical Assistance Center (TAC). Applicable cameras in the field can be updated with the new SV2 Multi-Sensor Sustaining Release with the assistance of the TAC.
An earlier Single-Sensor Sustaining Release issued in March of 2017 made SNAPstream (Smart Noise Adaptation and Processing) technology available to new Arecont Vision cameras plus 140 older models. SNAPstream reduces bandwidth and storage requirements without impacting image quality. Other feature enhancements and improvements were also made available in that sustaining release.
Exciting new features are added and available for SurroundVideo G5 and SurroundVideo Omni G2/G3 with the SV2 Multi-Sensor Sustaining Release. Major enhancements, additions, and capabilities include the following:
New Arecont Vision production cameras built after December 1, 2017, in each of these multi-sensor series now include the updates in the SV2 Multi-Sensor Sustaining Release, and will start making their way into authorized distribution channels. Cameras in inventory at Arecont Vision facilities or at authorized distributors can be field upgraded.

The Arecont Vision Technical Assistance Center (TAC) has the necessary files to update your existing cameras, and the expertise to assist you over the phone with the process for a smooth, problem-free installation of the SV2 Multi-Sensor Sustaining Release.
For customers who have installed Arecont Vision sustaining releases previously, the process has been simplified. An enhanced upgrade method has been developed and is now available using a combined file (hardware + firmware) upgrade (.av), which the TAC personnel will explain when contacted.
