Overview: The ClearView HD2-PTZ-4 is a day/night PTZ dome camera designed for indoor or outdoor use in a closed circuit system, such as the ClearView PantherView HD-AVS system. This weatherproof (IP66), high-definition camera has a 4x zoom lens with a 2.7mm-11mm focal length. The lens has a horizontal angle of view of 112.5° (wide angle) to 30° (telephoto). The close focus distance ranges from 100mm to 1000mm (3-15/16" to 39-3/8"). The camera can be set to output HD or SD signals, and operates on 12VDC (power adapter sold separately).
Imaging Device: The camera features 1/2.7" 2.0-megapixel (1944 H x 1092 V) CMOS progressive scan image sensor. It can output HD video signals of 1920 x 1080p at 25/30 fps frame rate, and 1280 x 720p at 25/30/50/60 fps frame rates.
PTZ (Pan-Tilt-Zoom): The HD2-PTZ-4 dome camera has a continuous 0° to 355° pan range, and a 0° to 90° tilt range, to go along with its 4x zoom range. You can manually control the speed of the pan (0.1° to 100° per second) and the tilt (0.1° to 60° per second). Its Proportional Pan and Tilt function varies the pan and tilt speeds in proportion to the depth of the zoom. This keeps the image from moving too fast when the camera is zoomed in. There are 300 preset positions to choose from, plus 5 PTZ patterns, 8 tours, Auto Pan, and Auto Scan. The Auto Restore feature automatically brings the lens back to its previous PTZ position and lens status after a power failure.
Video Formats: The HD2-PTZ-4 can output either in BNC HD-AVS High Definition video (up to 30fps @ 1080. The camera works with HD-AVS or Analog systems. HDAVS is an HD video transmission standard that can be transmitted long distances (over 800 meters at 720p, or over 500 meters at 1080p) over 75-3 coaxial cable without any loss.
Minimum Illumination: The HD2-PTZ-4 can give you a clear, bright picture in low light. The minimum illumination for color is 0.05 Lux @ F1.6 and 0.005 Lux @ F1.6 for Black & White. The camera does not have IR LEDs for recording in total darkness (0 Lux).
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 24 areas can be selected for privacy masking.
