Avigilon Unveils World’s Smallest HD Dome Camera

by Knowlton Thomas

Vancouver-based Avigilon today announced the world’s smallest HD Dome camera.

The one- and two-megapixel HD Micro Dome cameras open up the advantages of HD surveillance to budget-conscious installations requiring discreet cameras.

Unique to the HD Micro Dome camera is the patented cable design that enables the camera’s size, says Avigilon. By designing the camera’s intelligence into the smart cable, the Canadian company says it is able to provide the smallest HD dome camera in the industry. It's only slightly larger than a golf ball and weighs just 70 grams including the cable. 



“Stores, hotels, office buildings and restaurants want discreet cameras that provide exceptional image detail. Traditionally, you could get one or the other. Now with our HD Micro Dome, you get both,” said Rick Ramsay, senior product manager at Avigilon. “With this introduction, small and medium-sized businesses can easily transition from analog to HD surveillance.”

The HD Micro Dome provides a horizontal angle view of 86 degrees at 30 images per second, according to Avigilon.

The camera is slated to begin shipping this August.
