The Honeywell HCS544 Day/Night Camera adapts to varying lighting conditions to ensure the highest picture quality even in extreme low light conditions. When the light level drops too low for accurate video identification in color, the camera automatically switches to black and white video to capture more detail.
Low light performance is enhanced through the use of Digital Noise Reduction technology which removes noise artifacts, increasing the performance of video compression algorithms – giving end users the ability to record for longer periods using their existing DVR unit. Digital Slow Shutter technology further improves the light sensitivity of the camera and extends its usable range.
An On-Screen Display text menu simplifies all setup and adjustment options. Menu navigation is simple and picture adjustments can be made in a matter of seconds with easy-to-use pushbuttons on the back of the camera.
The HCS544 includes an automatic electronic shutter for changes in light level, and three zones of automatic backlight compensation options for viewing backlit scenes. The HCS544 produces 540 TV lines of resolution for applications requiring the highest level of sharpness in video quality as well as providing reliable video quality even in low light conditions down to 0.1 lux.
