Product Description


A minimum illumination of 0.5 lx allows colour images even in minimal lighting.

The Electronic Sensitivity Enhancement and Day/Night features enhance this capability even further to 0.03 lx(colour)/0.004 lx(BW)* when filming in the dark, making these cameras ideal for 24-hour surveillance.

Face Detection with Super Dynamic Technology

The Mega Super Dynamic function corrects illumination difference in images, making it easier to see objects in more natural conditions when monitoring and recording. It also detects human faces and makes them easy to identify.

LDC (Lens Distortion Compensation)

Image distortion caused by wide lens is compensated to display more natural images.

Fog and Smoke Reduction

Improved visibility of images in fog or smoke using Fog / Smoke reduction function

2-area VIQS (Variable Image Quality on Specified Area)

The data volume of the overall video can be reduced by filming sections with movement that needs to be monitored in high definition while filming unchanging sections in low resolution.

Two areas (total of up to 40% of the overall image) can be indicated as high-resolution monitoring sections.

Cropping features

The cropping function allows 1080p full HD (1920 x 1080) images and 360p (640 x 360) images to be sent simultaneously at 30fps.

The cropping function films close-up images of areas requiring monitoring while also recording the entire image with a high image quality (1080p), allowing for efficient use of the network. One camera does the work of two! Four cropping areas can be set in advance, and it is possible to switch between displays of those four areas. It is even possible to indicate and crop areas using CGI.

Various Transmission Modes

Select from four modes to suit conditions such as the image being filmed and the monitoring environment. This allows for optimal performance for image quality, movement, network load reduction, recording space and more.In addition to "Constant Bitrate", which provides the best picture quality, "Frame rate", which provides the best capturing of objects? movement, and "Best effort", which changes the settings according to network conditions, a new function, "Advanced VBR (Variable Bitrate)" has been added. Advanced VBR secures recording space on the recorder while maintaining a constant image quality, and can even film complex scenes without decreasing image quality.

SDXC Memory card edge recording

An SD memory card can be installed in the camera to record images. The camera can be set to record images to the SD memory card if a network problem causes a loss of communication between the camera and recorder, or when an alarm is detected.

Advanced Face Detection and Facial Recognition

Advanced face detection detects the position of human faces.

Eight faces can be detected at once.
