Arecont Vision ConteraIP™ Multi-Sensor Camera Named 2018 Campus Safety BEST Winner

Los Angeles, CA (October 8, 2018) – Arecont Vision Costar, the industry leader in IP-based megapixel camera technology and video surveillance solutions, announces that the ConteraIP multi-sensor panoramic dome camera is the recipient of an important security industry award. The new camera has been recognized as a 2018 Campus Safety BEST winner in the “CCTV Surveillance Hardware” category.

The ConteraIP multi-sensor panoramic camera offers a choice of 8 or 20MP (megapixel) dome configurations. It is ideal for schools, colleges, and healthcare providers as the camera provides a panoramic 180o view from a single, affordable, high performance dome unit. It delivers superior, non-stop situational awareness while reducing the number of cameras and cabling required. This reduces the cost to buy, install, and maintain a modern surveillance system, while being less overt by having fewer cameras deployed.

Campus Safety Magazine, honoring superior products and services for hospital, school, and university protection professionals, announced the winners of the 2018 Campus Safety BEST Awards on October 5, 2018, including Arecont Vision Costar.  The awards recognize superlative security, law enforcement, emergency management, and safety solutions for K-12 institutions, universities, and healthcare organizations.

"Campus Safety Magazine takes pride in focusing on content that helps protection professionals in the healthcare and education markets keep their students, teachers, patients, visitors, and campuses safe and secure," stated Robin Hattersley Gray, executive editor of Campus Safety. 

Entries were judged on all aspects involved such as innovation, functionality, and benefits to the installer, according to Campus Safety.

“This is an exciting day for Arecont Vision Costar,” stated Jeff Whitney, Vice President, Marketing, Arecont Vision Costar. “Education and healthcare are extremely important vertical markets for our company with customers around the world, and we are very pleased to see recognition for our newest multi-sensor camera from professionals in these areas.”
