  • More Info

    Connect to a Digital Video Recorder
    Old video surveillance systems used to require a remote access system, a camera multiplexer; a time-lapse VCR, and an unlimited supply of videotapes for remote viewing and digitally storing video from a multi-camera system. Now you can get the capabilities of all those products in one with a Digital Video Recorder (DVR). By connecting multiple cameras to a DVR, you will be able to record and review video footage of activity around your property. You can even remotely access your video footage using a Network Digital Video Recorder (NDVR).

    Lux rating is the amount of minimum illumination that a camera can have and still pick up an image, 0 being the lowest, or no light. So the closer the lux rating is to 0, the better the camera will operate in no light or low light situations. The Day/Night 700TV Lines 6-50mm Varifocal Camera can pick up images in 0 lux.

    IR LEDs
    Infrared (IR) cameras can pick up images in total darkness. Most IR cameras send out IR light from light emitting diodes (LEDs), which can not be seen by the human eye. This light reflects from objects, which can then be picked up by the camera in low-light and no light areas. These images are seen in black & white rather than color. The greater the number of IR LED illuminators, the greater the power of the camera. The Day/Night 700TV Lines 6-50mm Varifocal Camera has 16 IR LEDs.

    Resolution is the amount of horizontal TV lines that make up a picture, so the higher the number of the resolution, the better clarity your picture will have. Note that the monitor or recording device you use must have a resolution equal to or greater than the resolution of the camera, as it will do you no good to have a camera that can output in 540 lines of resolution but have a monitor or recording devices that only picks up images at 300 lines of resolution. The Day/Night 700TV Lines 6-50mm Varifocal Camera has 700 lines of resolution, which is DVD quality.

    On Screen Display
    The Day/Night 700TV Lines 6-50mm Varifocal Camera has an On-Screen Display (OSD) which allows you to see and control the camera's various features. Adjust settings for shutter, white balance, back light control, and more.

    Wide Dynamic Range
    Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) enhances a camera's ability to display scenes with vastly differing degrees of light. A normal camera confronted with brightly lit parts of a scene combined with darker areas will display either good images of the bright parts, for instance the scenery visible through a window, while the interior of the room shows as dark shapes with no detail, or will show the windows as washed-out white spots and the interior details are clear. WDR enables the camera to display good details in both areas: clear details of the brightly-lit outside scene, and clear details of the people and furnishings inside the darker room.
