Digital Watchdog DWC-C273W overview

  • 1Description

The Star-Light Series 2.1MP AHD Box Camera from Digital Watchdog is a versatile surveillance camera that can be used in a myriad of security solutions. The camera features AHD technology, providing you with high-definition video over coaxial cables. This allows you to upgrade an existing surveillance setup while still keeping your BNC wiring. With a 1/3" Panasonic CMOS sensor, the camera features 1920 x 1080 high-quality video resolution at 30 fps and 1280 x 720 resolution at 60 fps. Compatible with both C-mount and CS-mount lenses, this box camera can be paired with most surveillance lenses for versatility and convenience. Furthermore, Star-Light Technology offers a slow shutter feature which increases the length of time the shutter remains open, collecting additional light to produce clear color and B&W images in low-light environments. There are up to 16 programmable privacy masking areas for personalizing the camera to your specific requirements, and backlight compensation, digital noise reduction, automatic gain composure, and adjustable white balance enhancements assist in providing clear video footage, regardless of changing light levels. Additionally, the onscreen display menu with a built-in joystick allows you to make quick changes to the camera's light settings for increasing image sharpness and brightness.

Conveniently compatible with both C-mount and CS-mount lenses, the camera is versatile for use in a wide range of scenarios
