The 2 MP mini dome camera features an advanced 1/2.5-in. Progressive-scan STARVIS™ imager with a 2.8 mm fixed lens. The camera offers True Wide Dynamic Range, a True Day/Night IR Cut filter, IP67 Ingress Protection and operation in extreme temperatures to deliver superior images in all lighting and environmental conditions. The camera is a component of Dahua's innovative Enhanced Power over Ethernet (ePoE) system that transmits power and data over long distances without the need for repeaters or multiple switches.
Enhanced Power over Ethernet (ePoE)
Technology Dahua's innovative ePoE technology offers a plug-and-play solution to transmit power and data over long distances via Ethernet or coaxial cables, reducing installation time and saving money. ePoE technology is a viable, cost-effective solution for extending transmission distances and for converting existing, coax-based analog systems into IP systems. For video security and surveillance installers, ePoE technology saves time and money by reducing overall cabling requirements, allowing for existing coax cable to be used, and minimizing the number of peripheral devices needed. For new installations, ePoE offers the ability to design long-distance applications without the need for additional repeaters.
Enhanced PoE encompasses pure IP systems where a single CAT 5 cable can carry signals up to 800 m (2624 ft), and IP/Analog hybrid systems where the technology leverages existing analog infrastructure to transmit power and data up to 1000 m (3281 ft) over RG59 coaxial cable. Enhanced PoE is compatible with three connection modes operating over the same network simultaneously: traditional IP networks, long-distance ePoE networks and coaxial networks. ePoE technology seamlessly integrates the latest high-definition IP cameras with a coaxial infrastructure using the Ethernet over Coaxial (EoC) protocol to convert between analog and IP power and data transmissions.
True Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)
The camera achieves vivid images, even in the most intense contrast lighting conditions, using industry-leading wide dynamic range (WDR) technology. For applications with both bright and low lighting conditions that change quickly, True WDR (120 dB) optimizes both the bright and dark areas of a scene at the same time to provide usable video.
Intelligent Video System (IVS)
IVS is a built-in video analytic algorithm that delivers intelligent functions to monitor a scene for Tripwire violations, intrusion detection, and abandoned or missing objects. A camera with IVS quickly and accurately responds to monitoring events in a specific area. In addition to scene analytics, the camera supports face detection to quickly capture a face and upload the image to a server. The camera also offers tamper detection by recognizing a dramatic scene change and generating a warning message to inspect the camera.
