Camera metal casing with IP66 protection rating is supplied with a heater, controlled by a special processor, allowing outdoor video camera to operate at temperatures ranging from -40 to +50 ° C. To ensure stable device operation, new security device features concealed wiring cable through the bracket.
Sony Super HAD II CCD and DSP-processor provide clear images with high sensitivity, wide dynamic range, high light compensation and effective noise reduction.
