American Dynamics Ultra 8 overview

  • 1Description

The American Dynamics ADSDU822OPCP offers 22x optical zoom and 11x digital zoom capabilities. This compact and versatile camera is capable of clear and sharp-colored pictures even in very low lighting conditions, making it a good indoor video surveillance device. The Ultra 8 uses DSS technology that allows you to capture quality images even in dim light. This technology enables the Charge Coupled Device (CCD) to capture and store a greater amount of the light focused on it from the camera lens. It makes the camera perform well in varied lighting conditions. Additionally, the camera offers a continuous auto-focus feature; this makes for clear images across the full range of motion. Image quality is further enhanced with the Automatic Gain Control (AGC) and white balance features.

With an efficient motion-detection feature, the SpeedDome Ultra 8 Dome Camera can trigger multiple user-specified actions. The camera can be installed in areas such as meeting rooms where silence is a prerequisite as this Dome Camera, in the absence of a built-in fan, is virtually noiseless.

With a twist-lock release, it can be easily attached and removed from the base, simplifying installation as well as servicing. The integrated Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) system ensures that the power, communication, and video cables are systematically connected between the actual camera and the I/O PC board in the base. This I/O board supports four alarm inputs and outputs each. Power and communication LEDs are also connected to this I/O board. The I/O board retains all presets from the user even if the camera is changed, eliminating the need for reprogramming.

User-friendliness is enhanced with on-screen text indicators available in a choice of six languages - English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, and German. The screen displays include useful information such as presets, patterns, alarms, and even area names. The camera's line of focus and the direction it is moving in are also displayed on screen.

The camera allows you to turn the text display on/off, or even choose whether you wish to see solid or translucent text. Some of the information available includes the time period the camera was on, the pan/tilt/zoom activities, and the presets selected. The camera supports 96 user-defined preset positions and 16 preset sequences. The 'freeze frame' on presets allows a specific amount of space to be saved on the digital recorder hard drive. The DirectSet facility allows you to get quick access to the most frequently accessed camera features.

The SpeedDome Ultra 8 has 8 privacy zones with which confidential areas and personnel privacy can be respected. The camera also supports SensorNet, RS-422, AD-UTC, Manchester, and certain other manufacturer protocols.
