Improved image quality and simple installation are some of the key benefits of Grundig’s new 960H analogue CCTV camera range.
The new 960H analogue camera range, from Grundig Security, comprises indoor mini domes, outdoor vandal-resistant mini domes, bullet and box cameras with surface, flush, wedge (angle) and pole mount options. The bullet cameras also incorporate a new, three-axis, high-impact bracket, which offers infinite positional adjustment.
The analogue range is available in both colour and true day/night variants. All the cameras use advanced 960H analogue technology; a new development which produces image resolutions of up to 700TVL in black and white and 650TVL in colour modes.
“Adaptive IR technology is used in the night-time cameras to avoid scene or target saturation from the camera’s built-in IR LEDs,” explains Andreas Franusic, product manager at Grundig. “The ambient IR level can be set up manually using an adjuster tool. The same adjuster tool is used for the mini-dome lens adjustment and for locking the camera into position on its three axis gimbal. The IR mini-dome options use a new “U-form” formation of 28 IR LEDs to create uniform scene illumination across a full 90° viewing angle. This results in higher quality night-time images.
“The wide dynamic range (WDR) feature has been improved to compensate for even greater scene contrast than before. The new high light compression (HLC) feature removes over-exposed parts of a scene altogether. Tamron lenses are used across the range to ensure high-quality optics and the majority of cameras use vari-focal lenses for installation simplicity.”
Each camera has up to 15 polygonal privacy zones, multi-language menus and a Coaxitron-based remote setup facility. This allows camera settings to be adjusted with a convenient, hand-held remote control unit or directly from the Grundig DVR.
