The American Dynamic Discover 600 Super True Day/Night Box Camera (NTSC) is an ideal choice for 24/7 surveillance applications that require high-resolution images of the surveillance area. Equipped with a 1/3" CCD image sensor and 1.4mm lens, the camera delivers high-quality imagery at resolutions of up to 540 TVL. Designed for night time surveillance, this camera captures high-quality B&H images even in locations with a minimum illumination of 0.2 lux.

Equipped with a Night-Saver mode, the camera automatically switches from color to B&W as the light dims and reverts back to color once the light is restored. Advanced imaging features such as Automatic Gain Control and Automatic White Balance ensure clear color-accurate images. In addition, the camera's Automatic Back Light Compensation feature helps capture images even when the subject is in front of a bright light source.

Furthermore, with the help of the Automatic Electronic Shutter function, the camera provides vivid images in all conditions and helps the camera capture clear images of fast-moving objects. The camera's line-lock capability/internal synchronization feature ensures roll-free pictures during system operation switching.
