The Bolide Communications BC1009/PTZMINI-S is an affordable PTZ camera that comes housed in a small enclosure for added discreetness. Some of its motorized PTZ functions include a 10x optical zoom, 360° horizontal panning, as well as a full complement of preset and tour settings. PTZ controls can be accessed using industry standard CCTC controllers and DVRs that communicate via Pelco-D, Pelco-P, Lilin, Samsung, Neon, and similar PTZ control protocols. The camera also offers a good zoom speed of 1.67 seconds, going from wide to tele. This camera is also IP67-rated for weather-proof housing.
With regards to image quality, the camera uses a Sony CCD to produce a high resolution of 500 TVL, and employs a Day/Night function, activated via an IR cut filter mechanism, to enhance image visibility during nighttime hours. In Night mode, in addition to raising sensitivity levels from 0.7 lux to 0.02 lux, the camera's resolution is also increased to 570 TVL. Other important electronic controls include a white balance function to help maintain proper color temperature, and backlight compensation modes to correct scenes with high contrast and harsh backlighting. An on screen display (OSD) makes it easy to setup and configure PTZ and picture parameters. This camera ships ready for installation on the surface of a wall or ceiling, or recessed inside a hard or drop ceiling.
