The AHD-D4W is an indoor HD dome security camera (AHD CCTV) with built-in IR night vision surveillance support. This HD CCTV camera features a fixed 3.6mm lens and a 1/3" Sony Progressive Scan CMOS image sensor. The AHD-D4W captures high-definition video surveillance at 720P (1280 x 720) resolution over RG59 coaxial cable. Please note that this camera must be used with an AHD compatible DVR.
The AHD-D4W's built-in infrared illuminators allow the camera to capture video in total darkness. Smart IR technology enables the camera to automatically adjust the intensity of the infrared lighting based on the distance objects are located from the camera. For example, if a person walks closer to the camera, the infrared illumination intensity is lowered so the person's face is not washed out.
You can see sample surveillance images here that were captured using this camera. There is also a video demo here.
An OSD (On Screen Display) menu allows the user to adjust the camera's settings using a joystick located on the camera. Digital Noise Reduction produces better image quality by removing graininess, this feature is especially useful in black & white mode when the IR LEDs are active. This camera is powered by 12V-DC.
For environments with challenging lighting conditions, such as bright or dark backlighting, the AHD-D4W security camera uses Digital WDR Enhancement. Digital WDR Enhancement works by combining the brightest part of the image with the darkest part to create one highly detailed image.
If you would like to connect this camera directly to an HDMI compliant TV / Monitor, please refer to this BNC to HDMI converter add-on. You can select it from the options drop-down above.
