1080p Resolution at Full Frame Rate

It transmits 30 fps at 1080p with H.264 compression, which enables detailed surveillance video images. For example, if a person or object of interest passes quickly through the camera's field of view during an event, this camera captures 30 frames-per-second, providing a full record of the event and reliable identification of the target

Wide Coverage with Details

Compatible with the HDTV (16:9) standard, this camera provides surveillance coverage for a large area, thus reducing the number of cameras required. It is especially well-suited to monitor broad spaces such as shopping malls, airports, hotel lobbies, etc. as well as applications requiring accurate recognition for post-content analysis, such as the identification of people or license plates

Adapted for High-Contrast Lighting Conditions

When the camera is used in a high contrast, backlight, glare, or light reflective environment such as a building entrance, ATM, or window, the subject may appear dark and unrecognizable. WDR Enhanced technology compensates for the unbalanced lighting, restoring detail throughout the field of view, so as to give the user unparalleled visibility to identify images

Smart IR

When the Smart IR function is enabled, the camera automatically adjusts the IR lighting intensity in order to avoid overexposure in night mode and is highly beneficial in capturing usable video when the object of interest is close to the camera and IR LEDs

Remote Focus

The camera uses a lens with a built-in stepper motor that the installer can use to remotely control the focal length and precisely adjust the camera focus via the configuration webpage

Easy Focus

The installer can easily adjust the focus by pushing the auto focus button on the camera body. The lens module automatically adjusts the focus to the best value, offering hassle-free installation and maintenance
