Vivotek IP9181-H overview

  • 1Description

The V Series IP9181-H 5MP Network Bullet Camera from Vivotek records at up to 30 fps at 5MP. By using VIVOTEK's Smart Stream II technology the IP9181-H can optimize quality for desired regions to ensure efficiency of bandwidth usage. Combining H.265 and Smart Stream II, it can reduce bandwidth use and storage consumption by up to 80% while maintaining image quality. This combination of high resolution and low storage consumption make the IP9181-H suitable for a wide range of video surveillance environments, including government and industrial buildings, retail, airports, railway stations, and schools.

Employing WDR Pro allows the camera to capture both the dark and bright areas of a scene, combining the differences to create a realistic image. Further improving the IP9181-H's range of operating conditions, SNV technology makes high quality full-color surveillance video possible under low-light conditions. Software controls maintain the iris opening of the IP9181-H's lens at an optimal level, resulting in better sharpness and depth of field. The camera also uses VIVOTEK's RBF (Remote Back Focus) system, enabling the installer to adjust focus more precisely and with greater flexibility.
