The WTI SW720-H.264-SD Sidewinder 540TVL Outdoor IP Camera (NTSC) is a pan-tilt-zoom camera system that provides standard definition color video over an Ethernet connection, using H.264 or MJPEG video compression. The camera provides 360° continuous rotation in both the pan and tilt axes, and provides an optical zoom magnification of 35x.

A self-cleaning hydrophilic coating is provided on the front lens window of the camera to ensure clear, crisp video images and to reduce maintenance. An electrically conductive Indium-Tin-Oxide coating is provided on the inside of the front lens window to prevent fogging. The Sidewinder camera operates on AC line voltages within a voltage range of 85 to 265VAC and an operating frequency of 47 to 63 Hz. Ethernet 10/100Base-T communication is used for transport of the video and control signals. The Sidewinder camera is capable of supporting an H.264 and a second H.264 or MJPEG compressed video stream simultaneously.

The camera provides Ethernet ports for support of industry standard PTZ control protocols such as Pelco D, COHU, NTCIP, ONVIF and others. Legacy support for physical camera control units can be implemented using serial port to Ethernet converters. Power and Ethernet signals are provided via a 36" long bottom egress umbilical cable bundle using an outdoor rated SJOOW #18x3 power cable, an outdoor rated shielded CAT-5e Ethernet cable and an RG-59 video cable.
