Weatherproof HD wedge camera with 65-ft. night vision range
Our take on the ClearView HD2-WD20 by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
A low-profile wedge-shaped HD camera
ClearView's full HD weather-resistant HD2-WD20 is a dome camera on a low-profile, wedge-shaped base, so it can be mounted in locations where other cameras might not fit. It's effective in low light, thanks to a bank of infrared sensors that can pick up what's going on up to 65 feet away. The camera's metal case makes it vandal-proof, so you can mount it in any area that needs watching and expect it to stand up to punishment.

Overview: The ClearView HD2-WD20 is a day/night wedge mini-dome camera designed for indoor or outdoor use in a closed circuit system, such as the ClearView PantherView HD-AVS system. This weatherproof (IP67), high-definition camera has a fixed 3.6mm F2.0 lens with a 1/2.7" 2.1-megapixel (1928 H x 1088 V) CMOS progressive scan imaging device. The lens has a horizontal angle of view of 90°. The camera has dual output of HD and SD signals, and an integrated microphone. It operates on 12VDC (power adapter sold separately).
Video Formats: The HD2-WD20 can output 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-WD20 can give you a clear, bright picture in low light. The camera is equipped with 10 infrared LEDs surrounding the lens. The minimum illumination for color is 0.03 Lux @ F2.0. With the IR LEDs on, the camera has a 65.6' (20m) range in 0 Lux.
Lens Adjustment: The lens can be adjusted to allow you to aim the camera at the precise area you want to protect. With the dome cover removed, you can manually pan the lens 0°-60°, tilt 0°-80°, and rotate the lens a full 360°.
Vandalproof: The HD2-WD20 is designed to resist tampering or vandalism, and carries an IK10 rating. The metal camera housing is completely enclosed, and require a special tool (included) to remove the dome cover. The mounting screws are tightened from the inside of the enclosure.

- Day/Night: Auto (ICR), Color, B/W
- Backlight Compensation: True WDR (120dB)
Installation: The HD2-WD20 is designed to be mounted on a wall or ceiling with 4 screws (supplied). The power and video cables can be routed through the ceiling/wall by drilling an additional hole, or routed to the side through the groove in the camera base.
