Honeywell’s latest addition to the EQUIP Series of IP-based products, the
HCD5MIH is a high definition, True Day/Night network camera that offers the
latest in digital video surveillance. The HCD5MIH provides 720p resolution at
full frame rate. The 1/4" CMOS network camera combines world-class imaging and
camera technology with the EQUIP Series IP networking technology, providing
streaming H.264 and MJPEG images with frames up to 30 frames per second (25 fps
for PAL systems).
The HCD5MIH supports the PSIA specification for interoperability between
network video products. The HCD5MIH day/night camera adapts to varying lighting
conditions to ensure the highest picture quality even in extreme low light. When
the light level drops too low for accurate video identification in color, the
camera moves the IR cut filter out of the optical path and then switches to
black and white video to capture more detail using the increased sensitivity of
the CMOS sensor to IR light.
A powerful and intuitive web client allows fine tuning of the camera and auto
iris levels. This can also be performed from most DVR/NVR setup utilities.
The HCD5MIH supports dual video streams and multiple compression formats with
rates up to 30 frames per second (25 fps for PAL systems). The digital
compression parameters for the two video streams are independently configurable.
A third analog stream can be utilized as backup or for local viewing. It is also
valuable when retrofitting onto an existing analog input DVR or encoder (full
resolution not available).
The HCD5MIH has built-in Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af) Class 1, which
allows power to be supplied to the camera using standard network cabling,
eliminating the need for a separate power supply and associated wiring. In
retrofit situations where PoE switching does not exist, the unit can also be
powered directly from 24 VAC.
The HCD5MIH is a network
surveillance solution designed for object recognition that is required in
locations where variable and low light conditions exist. Setup is quick and easy
and can be customized through a web client or from an NVR. This provides optimum
performance for both indoor and outdoor applications.
