The SYS-CV180 is a live security camera TV display system that includes a
high definition 180 degree dome surveillance camera, a 1080p BNC to HDMI video converter, a 100 foot pre-made Siamese security camera cable, and a 5 foot HDMI cable. Customers supply their own TV monitor. Any high def TV with an HDMI video input and that supports 1080p@60hz resolution will work (almost all modern TVs do). This is the perfect plug and play system for customers that want to display live video from a single security camera on their TV via an HDMI video input.
Want to use a different camera?
Customers can use the 180 degree dome camera that is included with this system, upgrade to this
HD-BL8 adjustable lens bullet camera, or remove the included camera from the system and choose from any of these 1080p HD security cameras that CCTV Camera Pros supplies. We also carry live video display systems that support multiple cameras and multi-camera views.
Which camera is best?
The dome camera that is included by default has a 180 degree fixed lens and built-in infrared / night vision. It provides an ultra wide angle of view. The optional HD-BL8 is bullet style camera with a 3.6 to 16mm vari-focal lens and no infrared. The varifocal lens allows the angle of view to be much more narrow and zoomed in. You can see sample photos that show the differences in the angles of view here.
