The Spectra Professional Series P1220 PTZ Indoor Pendant IP Dome Camera from Pelco consists of a back box, dome drive, and clear lower dome with white trim ring. This system features a 4.3 to 86 mm lens and a 1/3” sensor that allows capturing images with resolutions up to 1920 x 1080. This IP camera uses H.264 compression for efficient network bandwidth usage.

The camera delivers clear, live streaming, HD images over the Internet using a standard web browser. The dome system features open architecture connectivity for third-party software recording solutions allowing integration into virtually any IP-based HD system. It is also compatible with Digital Sentry video management systems. The camera is Endura-enabled to record, manage, configure, and view multiple live streams. When connected to an Endura HD network-based video security system, the dome system has access to EnduraStor and EnduraView for optimized image quality and bandwidth efficiency.

Two built-in analytics, motion detection and camera sabotage, are preloaded in the camera and can be configured and enabled using a standard web browser. They are compatible with Endura or a third party system that supports alarms using Pelco’s API. Window blanking is used to conceal user-defined privacy areas that cannot be viewed by an operator. A blanked area will appear on the screen as a solid gray window. The camera also connects to Pelco IP and hybrid systems. This camera from the Spectra Professional series is a suitable solution to view details such as faces, license plates, tattoos, or other specific features when in a zoomed-in position.
