With built-in IR LEDs, Samsung’s new weatherproof 37x optical PTZ dome camera, the SCP-2370RH, is capable of capturing high resolution images both during daylight hours and in pitch-black darkness, making it suitable for a wide range of applications requiring effective 24-hour surveillance, including car parks, industrial estates, petrol forecourts, schools, hospitals and retail parks.
With an IP66 weatherproof rating and equipped with a fan and heater, the SCP-2370RH will also be at home in more demanding external environments that are prone to severe weather conditions such as airports and ports.
At night, or in any environments where there may be inadequate lighting, the camera’s built-in IR LEDs are automatically activated and provide effective lighting up to a distance of 100 metres. The IR intensity is automatically adjusted to provide the appropriate level of IR light, depending on the zoom ratio.
Incorporating Samsung’s W-5 DSP chipset, the SCP-2370RH, which features a true day/night camera with an integrated infrared cut filter, benefits from SSNRIII Samsung Super Noise Reduction technology which eliminates image noise in low-light conditions without creating ghosting or blurring and with the bonus that it can save up to 70% hard disk space whilst minimising bandwidth requirements when viewing the video over a network.
Other features include eight privacy masking zones, motion detection and Highlight Compensation technology which identifies and neutralises excessively bright areas in an image, enabling an operator to view previously hidden details. The SCP-2370RH is also equipped with Digital Image Stabilisation (DIS) technology which can negate the effects of the camera shaking due to high winds or building vibration.
Coaxial control compatibility allows the SCP-2370RH’s multi-language on-screen display menu to be accessed from the comfort of the control room via a compatible DVR. This allows both video and telemetry to be transmitted via the coaxial cable, giving full access to camera set-up and pan-tilt-zoom functions via a compatible digital video recorder.
