The Pelco C20-CH-6 High-Resolution Digital Day/Night Color Box Camera (NTSC) is an ideal choice for capturing detailed images of a surveillance area with fixed lighting conditions. This camera provides high-resolution color images up to 650 TVL, and features the digital electronic day/night function that enables it to provide uninterrupted surveillance be it day or night. The C20-CH-6 Box Camera also features motion detection for sensing movement in the scene. In addition, you can also block out certain confidential regions of the image for security reasons.

Using 2D-DNR (Digital Noise Reduction), the box camera digitally corrects any video noise that could cause blurring or distortion in the images by minimizing the signal-to-noise ratio penalties. Automatic gain control adjusts the signal strength to maintain a constant brightness level. With automatic BLC (Backlight Compensation), you can adjust video gain to correct the exposure when the object being captured is in front of a bright light. Additionally, the auto white balance adjusts the red and blue signals by taking a standard white color reference to get the most natural colors.

Since this camera conforms to NTSC standards, color video signals do not require any additional processing. Moreover, it also comes with an UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair) output for transmitting high-quality video.

A standard C- or CS-mount manual or DC iris lenses can be attached to this camera for reliable monitoring of the surveillance area.
