IP Camera licensing 

Resolution

The Arecont Vision 180 and 360 degree IP cameras require multiple IP camera licenses, as each sensor will be presented to the Digital Sentry VMS as an individual IP camera stream. For example the Arecont AV12186DN 180 degree IP camera generates the 180 degree panoramic view via four individual lenses and sensors installed in a single housing. Each sensor generates an independent video stream requiring an IP camera license when added to the Digital Sentry VMS.
