The 4K-BL9 is a 4K bullet security camera that supports 8MP resolution in AHD, HD-TVI and HD-CVI video formats. For customers that are currently using a legacy analog CCTV DVR, this camera also supports analog CCTV mode (CVBS) at 960H resolution (960 x 480). The video format can easily be switched using the
video mode selector button.
The analog CCTV mode is typically used by customers who need an analog camera now but plan on upgrading to a 4K DVR in the future. The video mode is selected via the camera's menu system, however, it is important that CCTV Camera Pros set the camera's video mode for you before we ship the camera so that you will be able to see the video and menu system. Customers can select the default video format that they prefer when adding this product to their shopping cart.
The infrared LEDs that are built-on provide up to 30 meters or 95 feet of IR night vision. Check out these
sample 4K surveillance images captured with the 4K-BL9. We also created this 4K-BL9 vs 1080p security camera video.
