Award-winning SurroundVideo Omni SX

The Omni SX was first unveiled at ISC West in Las Vegas, NV in April of this year. The camera is the newest member of the Made in USA SurroundVideo Omni family which pioneered adjustable view, multi-sensor cameras for the industry beginning in 2014. It is a low profile, compact indoor/outdoor dome camera available at either 12 or 20 Megapixel (MP), featuring four sensors mounted in individual motorized gimbals that can be pointed in any direction for ideal scene coverage, then remotely focused after the bubble is installed.

Important Omni SX features include enhanced WDR (wide dynamic range) & mechanical IR cut filters for day/night use, H.264 and SnapStream™ technology for reduced bandwidth without loss of image quality, and the highest projected reliability yet of any adjustable-view multi-sensor camera. Full integration with the cloud-enabled ConteraVMS® is complemented by ONVIF compliance and MegaLab™ validation for participating 3rd party VMS systems.

The ASTORS award is the second industry recognition received by the Omni SX. The camera series earler won a 2019 Government Security Award (or “Govie”), presented by 1105 Media & Security Today Magazine, at ISC West.
