The HD-BX50 is a 10x Zoom HD over coax security camera that supports AHD, HD-TVI, HDCVI, and analog CCTV video modes. This box camera captures
high definition video surveillance at 1920 x 1080 resolution (2 megapixel). The HD-BX50 has a built-in 6 ~ 50mm lens with 10x optical zoom that can be controlled by a DVR. Check out this sample surveillance video and images to see a demo of this camera.
The HD-BX50 is hard wired to a DVR using
RG59 coaxial cable. As with all HD security cameras, they must be used with an HD compatible DVR.
The HD-BX50 supports
UTC (up the coax) for the zoom controls and access to the OSD menu. UTC is an alternative to the old method of using RS-485. UTC transmits the zoom and menu system controls over the same RG59 cable used for video (so there is no need to run an additional pair of cable). You must use an HD security camera DVR with UTC support to use this feature.
For use in low light environments, this camera has a Black and White
Lux rating of 0.001. The IR Cut Filter enhances the image quality by blocking any unusable infrared lighting and only allowing the visible light to pass through. This also allows the HD-BX50 to be used with external infrared illuminators for environments with little to no ambient lighting.
Important Note: Although this camera supports analog CCTV mode, CCTV Camera Pros does not recommend using the camera in this mode. The UTC function for zoom and OSD operations does not work in analog mode. Also, the video quality is not very good in analog mode. We do highly recommend using this camera in the 1080p AHD, 1080p HD-TVI, and 1080p HDCVI video modes that it supports.

These images were captured using an HD-BX50 connected to an iDVR-PRO surveillance DVR. The images are 1080p HD resolution. Click on the images for the full sized view.
This first image was captured with the motorized lens zoomed out to the widest position. The small words on the side of that truck are 62 feet away from where the camera is mounted.
The above image shows the PTZ controls on the DVR that are used to control the zoom in/out functions of the camera. The up arrow on the PTZ controls zooms the camera lens in and the down arrow zooms the lens out.
This last image shows angle of view when the lens is zoomed all the way in to the 50mm / 10x zoom level. You can see that the camera easily focuses on the words displayed on the truck 62 feet away.
Outdoor Camera Housing
For outdoor installations, the HD-BX50 can be mounted in an outdoor box camera housing. Because this camera has a built-in zoom lens, the size of the camera is much smaller that traditional box-style cameras. This allows the camera to easily fit into our
compact outdoor housing for box security cameras.
For extremely hot or cold weather conditions, installers can also use this
outdoor camera housing with heater and fan.
