The American Dynamics ADSDU8E35OPCWN SpeedDome Ultra 8E Programmable Dome Camera offers high performance with 540 TVL, 35x optical zoom, WDR, Day/Night, DSS, and EIS. The Day/Night and DSS features allow you to clearly see images in scenes as dim as 0.00041 lux. EIS reduces vibration, so the image can be viewed properly and it is very useful when the dome is installed in places that subject it to shaking or moving, such as a pole next to a highway. These features combine to make this camera an ideal solution for outdoor applications requiring high resolution images whether up close, far away, or for indoor applications requiring the best picture possible, such as in casinos or retail establishments.
Superior Video Images
SpeedDome Ultra 8E features powerful zoom capabilities with 420x total zoom (35x optical zoom with 12x digital magnifier). The camera includes some of the industry’s most powerful features including the innovative WDR capability, which compensates for very bright and dark conditions within the same scene. For low-light applications, a removable infrared (IR) cut filter provides effective viewing in lighting conditions as low as .00041 lux in the B&W mode. The camera also includes the innovative EIS feature, which reduces the effects of vibration. This feature is especially useful when the dome is installed in places that subject it to shaking or moving, such as a pole next to a highway. The camera also allows you to further compensate for low-lighting conditions using the DSS technology, which allows the CCD imager to accumulate more light. Additional image adjustments include Automatic Gain Control (AGC) and white balance.
Advanced Control and Positioning
Supports up to 96 preset positions, 2 with user defined titles, and 16 preset sequences with a 10-minute dwell time for viewing flexibility. It supports up to 16 patterns and a preprogrammed default spiral pan pattern (“apple peel”) covers the entire viewing area. Each pattern can store up to 99 PTZ commands. Using the Freeze Frame feature before moving to a preset minimizes hard drive usage when video is digitally recorded.
The camera includes motion detection and tracking capabilities. A specified area of interest can be tracked within an 8 x 8 grid matrix. When the dome detects motion within that block, it will follow the moving object to keep it in view. Frame noise reduction has been decreased significantly.
Alarms can be processed internally by the dome, externally by the controller, or by both the dome and the controller. Each of the dome’s alarm inputs can automatically call a preset or run a pattern when the alarm is activated.
To ensure key areas of a facility are continually monitored, an inactive or unattended dome can be configured to return to “home position” after it performs a pre-defined preset, sequence, or pattern. When the dome tilts to its lower limits, an innovative automatic proportional flip feature automatically turns the dome 180°. Alternatively, you can manually flip the dome from the keyboard.
To protect sensitive areas, you can program up to 32 privacy zones of different sizes. These privacy zones automatically change size proportionally when zooming in or out. Each privacy zone functions independently, dependent on size and location of the zone, having more control over accurate placement. In addition, the camera provides control of patterns through a menu entry for easier command of the PTZ functions. High resolution and improved patterns allow for improved accuracy when maneuvering and controlling the camera.
Zoom Adjusted Programming (ZAP) automatically adjusts pan and tilt speeds in proportion to zoom position, even at maximum magnification.
In addition to SensorNet, Manchester, AD-UTC, NTCIP, and RS-422 protocols, the dome can be controlled via other select manufacturers’ protocols such as Pelco P, Coaxitron, Panasonic UTC, Vicon RS-422, and Bosch Biphase, making it a perfect choice for customers wanting to replace older PTZs. Additional third party protocols includes Pelco D and Pelco Coaxitron UTC.
Powerful On-Screen Display
It generates helpful on-screen text including dome, preset, pattern, alarm, area names, and direction indicators. These indicators show the direction in which the dome is currently pointing and the direction in which it is moving. For example, you can assign up to 16 areas of various sizes to identify boundaries within different areas. In addition, the direction indicators display the dome’s azimuth (degree of tilt).
On-screen text indicates zoom, focus, and iris status. All information is user-definable and can be turned on or off. When turned on, text can be set to appear either solid or translucent. This ensures that the text is always visible without blocking important parts of the image.
On-screen text supports 6 languages: English, French, Italian, Spanish, German, and Portuguese.
Powerful Configuration and Maintenance
A convenient Direct Set feature provides fast access to all of your most frequently used dome features when used with a suitably equipped controller. To ensure the integrity of your security settings, password protection prevents unauthorized use of the on-screen menus.
Sensing of 50/60 Hz lines is automatic and does not require manual adjustment. The fully isolated power supply helps eliminate ground loops. Surge protection is provided for video, code, alarms, and power connections.
To ensure you have ample time to schedule maintenance, the dome maintains statistics on how long it has been on, duration of pan/tilt/zoom movements, number of presets selected, and other usage information.
In the event that a camera needs to be changed, the new SpeedDome Ultra 8E I/O base now retains preset and pattern information so a user does not have to spend time reprogramming.
Ease of Installation
The dome incorporates an innovative twist lock release from the mounting base for easy installation and servicing. Power, communication and video cables (or composite cable) are connected at one time to an I/O PC board in the mounting base so the assembly is simply twist-locked onto the base. Service and maintenance are easy and can be accomplished without a ladder or lift via the installation/removal tool. The I/O board mounting base supports 4 alarm inputs and 4 alarm outputs (indoor only) as well as power and communication LEDs.
