The Pelco BU5 Integrated IR Vandal-Resistant Bullet Camera (NTSC) features a1/3" EXview CCD II Sensorthat captures excellent images up to resolutions of 650 TVL. 

The BU5camera features a set of integrated 28 LEDs that enables it to deliver high-quality images, even at night with a minimum illumination of 0 lux (B&W). It uses automatic gain control (AGC) to optimize the video signal. Thanks to automatic white balance (AWB), the camera is capable of handling difficult lighting situations, while 2D digital noise reduction eliminates noisy signals to provide blur-free images. The removable IR cut filter switches between color and black-white modes as environmental lighting conditions change, and when the need for infrared sensitivity is realized. The bullet camera also uses adaptive tone reproduction (ATR) technology to compensate for gradation of subjects to an optimum level and provides high performance video quality over a wide range of lighting conditions. 

The rugged, outdoor housing of the camera is IK10-rated which means that it can withstand vandalism attacks and is suitable for use in high-risk locations. In addition, the housing is also IP66-rated so you can be assured of uninterrupted surveillance in harsh weather conditions. This bullet camera can even operate in extreme temperatures ranging from –22 to 122°F. All in all, this BU5 bullet camera is an ideal solution for 24/7 surveillance of most rugged outdoor applications.
