Overview: The ClearView D-52 is a day/night zoom dome camera designed for indoor use in a closed circuit system, such as the ClearView Hawk, Eagle, or LCD Combo systems. This high-resolution camera (700 lines color, 750 B/W) features a 1/3" Sony Super HAD CCD II imaging device with 480K pixels (976 H x 484 V). The camera is equipped with the Effio-P processor, and a 2.8mm-12mm Varifocal lens. It operates on 12VDC, and has a 75-ohm composite video output with a BNC connector.
Minimum Illumination: The D-52 can give you a clear, bright picture in extremely low light. The minimum illumination for color is 0.001 Lux @ F1.2 / 0.0001 Lux @ F1.2 (Slow shutter mode, 512x). For B/W, the minimum illumination is 0.0001 Lux @ F1.2 / 0.00001 Lux @ F1.2 (Slow shutter mode, 512x).
Privacy Masking: If there are areas in the camera's view that you do not wish to show, you can use privacy masking to obscure those areas. Up to 4 areas can be selected for privacy masking.
On-Screen Display: The D-52 features an on-screen display (OSD) to indicate a camera number or to define the room where the camera is located. The OSD is available in English and Chinese.
Wide Dynamic Range: The camera has a wide dynamic range of 75dB to give you a clear picture when there is strong light, shadow, or backlight in the camera's view.
OSD Keyboard: Included with the camera is a small circuit board which connects to the camera via a 6-pin ribbon cable. The circuit board has a 5-button "keyboard" with buttons for left, right, up, down, and confirm. These buttons allow you to operate the on-screen display and make adjustments to various camera settings.

Installation: The D-52 is designed to be mounted on a wall or ceiling. The exterior dome can be easily removed to expose the mounting screw holes. A self-adhesive template is included to indicate the position of the four mounting screws (included). The power and video cables can be routed through the ceiling by drilling an additional hole, or routed to the side of the camera by knocking out small panel in the base. Once the installation is complete, the exterior dome can be simply screwed back into place.

1 question already asked
This indoor dome camera works with ClearView and other brands of analog surveillance camera systems. We don't carry Defender products here so I can't confirm compatibility with that DVR, but the camera operates on 12VDC, and has a 75-ohm composite video output with a BNC connector; so if your DVR has the input to connect that, it should work.
