Excellent, Fixed Camera for Video Surveillance
This network camera enables coverage of a large area and extremely high image detail. It delivers 2592 x 1944 videos in H.264 and Motion JPEG. This day / night camera features digital PTZ, multi-view streaming, and easy installation with remote back focus, pixel counter and PoE (Power over Ethernet). 2-way audio, audio detection, video motion detection, active tampering alarm, and a microSD / microSDHC / microSDXC slot for optional local storage is also supported. It is suitable for use in airports, banks, schools, and stores.
Easy Installation with Focus Assistant, Remote Focus and Pixel Counter
Setting the focus on the camera is made easy with the focus assistant, which is indicated with a flashing green LED when an image is in focus after manually adjusting the lens. Additionally, the camera offers remote back focus, which allows the focus to be fine-tuned from a computer. The pixel counter further helps the installer verify that the pixel resolution of an object fulfills regulatory or customer requirements, such as, for facial identification.
Digital PTZ and Multi-View Streaming
This camera supports digital pan / tilt / zoom, which allow a selected area of interest to be cropped from the full view for viewing or recording, thereby minimizing the bit rate and storage needs. It also enables multi-view streaming, which allows several cropped view areas to be streamed simultaneously, simulating up to 8 virtual cameras. The camera supports multiple, individually configurable video streams in H.264 and Motion JPEG.
