Please Note: The Vivotek IP8161 is no longer manufactured and has been replaced by the Vivotek IP8165HP.

The VIVOTEK IP8161 megapixel surveillance camera is a professional-series fixed network camera featuring superb image quality and exceptional bandwidth efficiency. The IP8161 megapixel camera is especially suitable for wide open spaces such as building entrances and airports, or applications requiring accurate identification, such as human faces in banks or vehicle license plates in parking lots.

The IP8161 supports H.264 compression technology, drastically reducing file sizes and conserving valuable network bandwidth. With MPEG-4 and MJPEG compatibility, video streams can also be transmitted in either of these formats for versatile applications. The streams can also be individually configured to meet different needs or bandwidth constraints, thereby further reducing bandwidth and storage requirements. Users can receive multiple streams simultaneously in different resolutions, frame rates and image qualities for viewing on different platforms.

The IP8161 features a 2-megapixel image sensor. This enables the camera to provide a wide field of view with exceptional detail when compared to a standard VGA camera, significantly reducing the number of camera installations. The ePTZ (electronic pan tilt zoom) function enables users to focus on close-up shots of different areas in the camera’s view without moving the camera physically. Users can quickly move to a target area by simply clicking on the video feed from the camera on their screen. In addition, the IP8161 can deliver user-defined thumbnails for viewing instead of video of an entire scene so as to optimize bandwidth and storage efficiency.

The day and night function is achieved by the camera's built-in removable IR-cut filter. The IP8161 megapixel surveillance camera is able to maintain clear images 24 hours a day. Additionally, the IP8161 camera incorporates an adjustment ring to improve lens compatibility with either C- or CS-mount lens, providing system integrators with more flexibility and hassle-free installation for different applications. The built-in SD/SDHC card slot offers a convenient and portable storage option to prevent data loss in case of network disconnection.

The integrated BNC connector allowing the IP8161 to be connected directly to an analog monitor provides enhanced flexibility and usability and ease of installation. Together with PoE, QoS, activity adaptive streaming, and the included 32-CH central management software, the IP8161 is indisputably the top choice for reliable and high performance surveillance.
