Vivotek MD8531H overview

  • 1Description

The VIVOTEK 1.2MP Vandal-Resistant Mobile Network Dome Camera is compact and geared toward transportation applications such as buses, trains, and other vehicles. With full EN50155 compliance & IP66-rated design, the camera can withstand shock, vibration, humidity, dust, and temperature fluctuations, delivering stable video during vehicle movement. Furthermore, the vandal-resistant metal housing has an IK10 rating.

With the tamper detection feature, the camera can keep security staff notified once it suffers video loss from being blocked or spray-painted. PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) allows the camera to be operated and powered with a single Ethernet cable for simplified installation. In order to facilitate on-board storage and data portability, the camera has a microSD/SDHC/SDXC card slot. In corridor scenario, video rotation feature can provide wider vertical coverage for more depth.

Featuring Wide Dynamic Range Technology, it provides improved visibility in both dark & light environments. Combined with 3D Noise Reduction (3D-DNR), which enables the camera to capture video under low-light conditions and reduce bandwidth from sensor noise, users can identify an increased level of image details in bright as well as dark environments.
