The DPRO-520MVF is a dome security camera with a white base. The latest generation DPRO-520MVF is a 4-in-1 hybrid HD BNC camera. It has the exact same specifications as the AHD-D32W HD security camera. This hybrid HD over coax camera supports AHD, HD-TVI, and HD-CVI video formats in 1080p resolution. It also supports analog CVBS / analog CCTV video format in 960h resolution (960 x 480).
This infrared dome has
24 IR LEDs built in that automatically turn on when light levels are low. The infrared night vision of this camera is capable up to 65 feet. The smart IR technology enables the camera to automatically adjust the intensity of the infrared based on the distance objects are located from the camera. For example, if a person is initially at a far distance, the IR intensity will be high and as the person gets closer to the camera, the intensity lowers so that the persons face does not get washed out. Please check out these surveillance photos captured by the DPRO-520MVF. You can also watch HD surveillance video demos here.
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. This camera can be powered by a 12V DC or 24VAC power supply.
For environments with bright backlighting, the DPRO-520MVF has built-in
Digital Wide Dynamic Range Enhancement. Digital WDR works by combining the brightest part of the image with the darkest part to create a single 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.
