The 650 TVL WDR DSS Day & Night Long-Range Integrated Outdoor IR Bullet Camera from Pelco is an ultra-high-resolution digital camera with 650 TVL of resolution that displays images in color mode with a minimum illumination of 0.13 lux. In low-light conditions, the camera can use DSS (Digital Slow Shutter) to produce 0.03 lux sensitivity. This camera, with its on-board group of built-in IR (infrared) LEDs, delivers good-quality images even at night with no illumination. Its day/night technology provides optimal performance over a wide range of low-light conditions.
The camera is equipped with IR compensation and uses a removable IR cut filter to switch between the color and B&W modes as environmental lighting conditions change, and also when the need for IR sensitivity is realized. Supported by built-in WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) technology, this camera can detect the IR illumination level and adjust it automatically. This bullet camera can be set manually to adjust the IR illumination levels, enabling users to change the levels of luminance and contrast according to the shooting environment. This function reduces the blooming effect and delivers clear images when objects get closer to the camera.
This bullet camera also uses ATR (Adaptive Tone Reproduction) technology to compensate for gradation of subjects to an optimum level and provides good video quality over a wide range of lighting conditions. AWB (Automatic White Balance) allows the camera to be used in difficult lighting situations and DNR (Digital Noise Reduction) minimizes environment noise levels to produce clear image quality. Additionally, the BLC (Back-Light Compensation) adjusts the picture to prevent the objects from appearing dark due to a strong backlight. These features can be easily configured using the convenient on-screen menus and can be accessed using the bottom panel button.
This camera also has built-in analytical capabilities that include privacy zones, motion detection, and camera titles that add to its functionality and make the camera suitable for most applications. With the included IR supplemental lighting, the bullet camera operates under zero lux (monochrome mode).
The camera has a rugged, outdoor design and is impact-resistant to the IK10 standard. It operates at a wide range of temperatures, making it suitable for use in rugged outdoor applications. This camera also meets the weathertight IP66 standard.
The camera is suitable for use in medium-range outdoor boundary surveillance that has zero light at night and a need to supplement the scene with IR light. The true day/night functionality provides the best images in low-light and IR light applications by using a black-white mode function.
