The Removable IR Cut Filter allows for the use of an external infrared illuminator in no light environments. The WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) feature works by taking the brightest part of the image and combining it with the darkest part to create one highly detailed and balanced image.
This camera can be powered by either the included 12V-DC power adapter or by POE (Power over Ethernet) 802.3af. The POE option allows the user to run both video and power over one cable. A built-in Micro SD / SDHC / SDXC card slot enables the user to record video clips and snapshots locally (Class 6 and above cards are recommended by Geovision).
