Bounty of Features

The camera features designed external function adjustors, which include iris level control, IR distance/power adjustor and the dipswitch.

ABS Technology for Your Customer
The Day/Night WV-CW504 vandal-resistant camera series from Panasonic System Solutions Company delivers next-generation Super Dynamic 5 (SD5) image processing, enhanced by Adaptive Black Stretch (ABS) technology to compensate for dark areas within the scene.

Infrared Unit Takes it All On
Quaddrix's oQ-890/WDR/IR/VR is a Pixim-chip-based infrared camera designed for getting high resolution images in scenes with complex lightning conditions and outdoor environments with complete darkness situations.

Weatherproofed and Ready To Go
The SOC-4160 indoor/outdoor day/night camera with on-board mount from Samsung Techwin America comes integrated with a weatherproof housing and a built-in 3.6X, 2.8 to 10mm varifocal lens. It also features coaxial telemetry control for remote camera configuration without the need for running a separate data cable.

One Camera Covers it All
HGH Infrared Systems IR Revolution 360 is a panoramic thermal infrared camera designed to replace multi-camera perimeter security systems that have traditionally required several single or dual-head cameras set to pan, tilt, or zoom within a fixed field of view. It creates megapixel panoramic thermal images of a surveillance area at a rate of one full image per second for automatic, real-time intrusion detection and tracking.

Features Times Five
The new Pelco Sarix ID Series megapixel cameras feature SD to HD resolutions, Auto Back Focus, exceptional low-light performance, consistent color science and high-quality CS mount lenses for ranges up to 50mm. The unit includes H.264 compression and built-in analytics.

Crystal Clear and Focus Free
Speco Technologies' SCS cameras offer 550 lines of resolution and focus-free lens models that display crystal clear images from inches and beyond without refocusing the camera. All focus-free models include motorized 3.7 to 10mm auto iris lenses for versatility in the field.

Dual Mode, DNR and More
Vicon Industries new progressive scan camera, used within its SurveyorVFT 35X zoom domes, delivers superior video quality in two modes: normal and high sensitivity. Two additional features include: Digital Noise Reduction (DNR), which digitally samples the video image and removes excessive noise and an enhanced White Balance menu that allows the user to choose between "Sodium" and "Mercury" settings, specifically accommodating those lighting types.

Camera Takes on Starlit Conditions
The IK-1000 from Toshiba Surveillance & IP Products is an extreme low-light camera that captures high-resolution color surveillance video at 30 frames-per-second in starlight conditions. This extends color night-vision video capabilities to Homeland Security, military, aviation, public utility and other high-value asset applications.

Armor and IR Camera
Visiontech now offers its VXIRAD Tri-Color camera. The new IR Armor Dome includes a 550TVL Sony Super HAD 3D-DNR High Resolution CCD, low-lux level operation, OSD controls and a 2.8mm to 12mm varifocal lens.

Camera Exhibits Chameleonesque Qualities
Vivotek's IP7361 is a high-end 2 megapixel network bullet camera built for outdoor surveillance. To adapt to changing lighting conditions throughout the day, the camera is furnished with a removable IR-cut filter and IR illuminators for superior image quality around the clock.

6-Model IR Line Up
GE Security's TruVision Infrared (IR) line includes six infrared cameras that can see in total darkness, provide color images by day and black-and-white images under IR operation in low-light applications. TruVision IR dome and bullet cameras are also available in fixed and varifocal lens models.

Miniglobe Surface Mount Cameras
Wren Solution's MGDS4 Detention Grade Miniglobe day/night camera is a surface-mount institutional and prison grade housing that installs easily on wall or ceiling surfaces and offers protection in tough environments. IR illuminators capture clear images in daylight or complete darkness for a total system surveillance solution in the toughest spots.
