Tallinn, Estonia, April 22, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Smartec STC-3620 ULTIMATE compact outdoor camera is designed for round-the-clock operation in outdoor conditions and can operate in complete darkness using IR-illuminator. It features Sony Super HAD II CCD, modern DSP-processor, 4x zoom lens with AI and a metal casing with IP66 protection rating. Unlike many analogues, this outdoor video camera generates high-quality video with up to 700 TVL resolution and 0.15/0.001 lux in Color and B/W modes. To improve video quality, STC-3620 ULTIMATE supports digital noise reduction, high light compensation and image stabilization.
The new model is optimal for Day/Night video surveillance in outdoor conditions. It is equipped with varifocal lenses, which are placed in a compact metal casing with 66x112 mm dimensions. STC-3620 utilizes varifocal lens with 2.8-12 mm focal length and AI. The camera's metal casing with IP66 protection rating is supplied with a heater, controlled by a special processor, allowing the outdoor video camera to operate at temperatures ranging from -40 to +50 °C. To ensure stable device operation, new security device features conceal 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. As a result of video conversion this outdoor video camera transmits images with 600/700 TVL resolution in Color and B/W modes. Camera usage in CCTV systems provides a high degree of image detail, especially for the outdoor objects identification.
For high-quality operation in different light conditions Smartec outdoor camera activates IR-cut filter, switching STC-3620 between Day and Night modes. The sensitivity of the camera is about 0.15 lux in Day mode and 0.001 lux in Night mode operation, while the activation of SenseUp mode increases the level of sensitivity up to 0.00003 lux. To prevent spontaneous switching between Day and Night modes during the short-term changes of light level, this outdoor video camera allows the operator to adjust switching delay time from 5 to 60 seconds.
An important advantage of STC-3620 ULTIMATE is its built-in IR illuminator, which helps the outdoor video camera generate detailed B/W images even in complete darkness. Due to 20 IR LEDs with high luminous efficiency, the new outdoor model reduces costs for surveillance system installation, excluding additional light sources for monitoring zone illumination.
STC-3620 ULTIMATE utilizes some new functions for image quality improvement. For example, the outdoor video camera supports digital image stabilization (DIS) to eliminate the “smearing” effect, resulting from wind gusts or vibrations. Due to high light compensation (HLC) this video camera darkens the bright areas of the frame, improving the visibility of overall image. This mode is especially useful in recognition of license plates of cars moving in the dark with headlights, etc.
