Raising the Bar on TV Lines

TVL PureVision Technology is created using a 1/3” Sony HQ chip (1/3” interline transfer color CCD) and is the next step in intelligent surveillance systems. The increased Auto Gain Control provides greater sensitivity when lighting dims, compensating for the low backlight, resulting in brighter pictures within darker settings. Small items can now be clearly seen, allowing the end user a greater advantage in loss prevention. For more information, visit www.everfocus.com.
