GRUNDIG ADDS A 10X ZOOM OPTION TO ITS ANALOGUE, 960H, VANDAL-RESISTANT FIXED DOME AND BULLET CAMERAS.
A remotely operated, 10x zoom option is now available in Grundig’s 960H, analogue, vandal-resistant mini domes (GCA-C2357V) and bullet cameras (GCA-B2357T). Both cameras use a 3.8 to 38mm auto-focus zoom (AFZ) lens, with a viewing angle of 5.5° to 50°, to give operators a cost-effective zoom facility, in these fixed camera formats. The vandal-resistant dome option also features ultra-efficient ‘U’ form IR LED illuminators and as testament to its quality, it is UVV Kassen Certified – a German accreditation, which allows the camera to be used in banks.
“The adaptive IR LED technology used in our 960H analogue cameras avoids scene or target saturation,” explains Andreas Franusic, product manager at Grundig. “A ‘U-form’ array of 28 IR LEDs provides night-time illumination in the vandal-resistant dome, and the bullet camera has 35 IR LEDs mounted around the lens. Both cameras produce uniform scene illumination up to 45m, depending on scene reflection and content.”
The cameras are both true day/night and use the state-of-the-art, Sony 1/4″ CCD, 960H, Ex-view HAD II sensor. This produces image resolutions of up to 700TVL in black and white and 650TVL in colour modes. Both cameras are IP66 rated and operate in ambient temperatures as low as -25°C, without needing a heater. A wide dynamic range (WDR) feature has improved scene contrast and high light compression (HLC) removes over-exposed parts of a scene altogether.
Each camera has 8 polygonal privacy zones, 12vDC or 24vAC power options, multi-language menus and RS-485 remote set up.
