Progressive Scan Broadens Capabilities

In Progressive Scan mode, the video signal is processed by progressive scan to achieve clear images without any flicker effect. Since network cameras typically have backend systems based on progressive scan, the original picture quality can be maintained without requiring conversion from interlace scan to progressive scan.

 

High-quality Digital Output

The camera is equipped with a digital interface (Y/Cb/Cr 4:2:2) which is comparable to ITU-R BT656. Using this digital interface means that the quality of the camera’s video signal does not deteriorate. In addition, there is no need for an external analog/digital converter between the camera and any other equipment.

 

Various Operation Modes

The camera has four operation modes so you can choose the best one depending on your priorities for the application: for example, sensitivity, resolution or other factors.

 

Enhanced Noise Reduction

By combining 2D and 3D noise reduction, the camera offers a wide selection of noise-reduction settings, from Level 1 to Level 5, to allow the user to choose the ideal level for different shooting conditions.

 

Wide Dynamic Range with New Technology

The Wide Dynamic Range (Wide-D) feature allows for the capture of clear images in extreme lighting conditions.

Auto Mode

When shooting in high- or low-contrast lighting situations, the camera monitors the luminance differences within an image and automatically switches the Wide-D feature on and off, depending on the visibility of the subjects and the background.

Interlace Wide-D and Progressive Wide-D Modes

Interlace Wide-D mode is ideally suited to high-contrast environments, while Progressive Wide-D mode is suited to low-contrast environments

 

High-resolution Images

The camera achieves a high horizontal resolution of 550 TV lines to reproduce very clear and detailed images.

 

High-sensitivity Images

The camera delivers exceptional high sensitivity - ideal for security applications.

 

Advanced White Balance

For the White Balance function, there are two different modes: Outdoor Auto mode and Sodium Vapor Lamp

mode. These modes are designed to adapt to changing natural light outdoors, and to changing sodium vapor lamp lighting, respectively.

 

Extended Operation Temperature

The camera can operate in a range of temperature from -5°C to 60°C.

 

Temperature Readout

The camera unit’s internal temperature can be read out via VISCA. This data can be used as reference data to activate peripherals such as a fan or heater inside the camera equipment.

 

Slow AE Response

These cameras allow the user to set the auto response speed (up to 10 minutes) to enable the cameras to adapt to changes in lighting conditions. For example, when shooting in an underground parking lot, valuable images could otherwise be missed when car headlights cause an abrupt change in lighting conditions.

 

Color Enhancement

Ideally suited to low-vision applications, new color enhancement options can make reading text and pictures less challenging. Full-color images can be changed to black and white, and then inverted into two selected colors.
