When you need an indoor/outdoor camera with a high definition output, capable of capturing scenes everywhere from the barnyard to the warehouse, inside manufacturing facilities and hotel lobbies, the ECL-HD43 is a perfect candidate. It resists water and weather, and has an infrared array that lights up dark nights.
Easy Upgrade with SDI over Coax
For current owners of CCTV surveillance systems, the upgrade path from a standard CCTV camera network to an IP based network can represent technological challenges and a steep learning curve. SDI technology offers an easy alternative. SDI cameras can be plugged directly into the coaxial infrastructure that is already in place, no need to lay new cables. There are no IP issues since IP addresses are not part of the SDI architecture.
Great Picture, Surpasses Legacy Analog
This 1080 HD SDI with/ long Range IR has Advanced Low Light and Smart Noise Reduction. This high resolution and other professional qualities come from the Serial Data Interface architecture. SDI format provides an easy to implement method of connecting advanced CCTV cameras to existing security infrastructures that use coaxial cable, so if you already have a system that uses coaxial cable you don't have to replace them. No new cable required, no labor charge. SDI security cameras connect directly to coax.
HD Security Imaging
This camera uses a 1/3 Panasonic CMOS 16:9 Full HD video sensor that works with a varifocal 2.8-10mm Megapixel rated lens with an auto-iris and a mechanical IR filter. The F1.2 aperture is suitable for extreme low light conditions. This means a better video picture, making tasks like facial recognition easy.
Durable, Reliable and Functional
This camera can be used inside or out. The ECL-H43 is Vandal Resistant hardened metal case. It features an integrated lens separator and eliminates IR haze and glare.
When a video sensor images a scene it converts values of light into digital data. When an object is surrounded by light that originates behind the object, then details and color can be lost. Backlight compensation is a method that is built into the chipset and adjustable through the OSD menu that corrects data originating from this type of scene.
A camera without backlight compensation will often create a foreground image that appears too dark compared to the area surrounding it. The image appears like this because the sensor is compensating for the surrounding light. Intelligent backlight compensation attempts to protect the foreground subject and damps the surrounding light that might overpower the sensor. It helps to make sure that contrast, hue, and colors appear correctly.
The bad guys learn about CCTV cameras just like everyone else. Sometimes they can shine a bright light into the lens, effectively dazzling the camera and making it unfit for imaging details like faces and other identifying factors. HLC is a method based in the chipset, and adjustable through the OSD menu, that is was designed to combat this technique.
In operation, HLC identifies the highest luminance points and masks them. It reduces the haze or halo of blurry white light that can form and eliminates disabling glare. Depending on the product OSD menu, you can often select the mask color, sensitivity and transparency.
Wide Dynamic Range
Wide dynamic range or digital wide dynamic range (WDR and DWDR, respectively) are advanced forms of image compensation. Both features, which are part of the chipset and adjustable through the OSD menu, protect video images by filtering out high levels of backlight while preserving foreground colors & luminance values. In action, dynamic range activity captures two images one with short exposure and one with longer exposure and combines them digitally or through an analog process in order to keep the best qualities.
