The HD-TVI-BL2 is a 1080p resolution outdoor security camera (HD-TVI CCTV) with built-in infrared night vision. The HD-TVI-BL2 is enclosed in an IP68 rated weatherproof housing so that it can be used for indoor and outdoor video surveillance. This camera has a vari-focal (adjustable) 2.8 to 12mm lens that allows professional and DIY installers to easily adjust the field of view from very wide (about 100 degrees) to a much more narrow and zoomed in view. This high definition analog camera uses a Sony Progressive Scan image sensor that captures 1080p resolution ( 1920 x 1080 / 2 megapixel ) video. This camera is hard-wired to a DVR using RG59 coaxial cable. As with all TVI cameras, they must be used with an HD-TVI compatible DVR.
This 1080p camera uses 35 built-in infrared LEDs that allow the camera to operate in low light and zero light conditions. The 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. Please check out these 1080p images captured by the HD-TVI-BL2. You can also watch HD surveillance video demos captured with this camera here.
Professional and DIY installers can easily access a menu (on-screen display) that allows them to adjust the camera's image settings using a joystick located on the camera. Digital Noise Reduction produces better image quality by removing graininess, especially useful in black & white mode when the IR LEDs are active. Other settings such as brightness, gain, low light intensity (SENSUP) can also be adjusted using the OSD. The vari-focal lens adjustment and focus are also very simple to adjust on this camera using two knobs located on the back of the housing. This camera is dual voltage and can be powered via a 12V DC or 24VAC power supply.
