  • 1Description

The STAR-LIGHT Series DWC-PTZ37XAL High-Speed 37x PTZ Surface Mount Dome Camera with Wiring Module from Digital Watchdog offers 37x optical zoom and 16x digital zoom providing a total zoom of 592x. The camera utilizes a 1/4" Interline transfer CCD image sensor and 3.5 to 129.5mm auto focus lens to capture images at 680 TVL (B&W) and 560 TVL (color). It features STAR-LIGHT technology that allows the camera to collect additional ambient light, revealing details in typically dark environments by increasing the duration for which the shutter remains open.

Featuring Day/Night functionality with IR cut filter, the camera switches between color and B&W modes as per changes in the ambient lighting, ensuring accurate color reproduction in daylight and enhanced B&W images at night. It also provides a 0 to 360° endless pan with 360°/sec pan speed. The Vector Drive Technology allows the camera to move between viewing points by using the shortest path during pan/tilt motion. The PTZ dome camera comes with an IP66-rated weather-resistant housing with the wiring module inside the housing.
