Security Products from Siemens has introduced a range of innovative IP Bullet Cameras. Available in two variants – CCPW3025-IR (3MP version) and CCPW5025-IR (5MP version) – these best in class devices feature industry leading image resolution and quality to deliver the clearest possible images in a stylish and user-friendly design, both day and night.
Suitable for use indoors or outdoors, installing these IP Bullet Cameras is simple – just mount with a bracket that offers a choice of three distinct positions and add power and a network connection. Power can even be supplied via the IT network infrastructure through an in-built power over Ethernet (PoE) option.
Robust, reliable and suitable for a wide variety of applications, the camera and its 3-9mm motorised lens are built into a permanently sealed IP66 rated weather-proof enclosure. Even in extreme environments, with temperatures ranging from -40°C to +50°C, performance and continuity of operation is guaranteed.
These advanced features are complemented with H.264 and MJPEG dual encoding, including Context-adaptive binary arithmetic coding (CABAC) resulting in exceptional video encoding performance, while ONVIF Profile S compatibility allows seamless integration into third-party systems. The 3MP IP Bullet Camera offers a resolution of 2048x536P at 15fps and 1920x1080P at 25fps, while the 5MP version provides 2592x1944P at 12fps and 1920x1080P at 25fps. Both variants boast bidirectional audio input/output and on board storage can be configured using a micro SDHC/SDXC card of up to 64Gb for local alarm recording.
These Siemens Bullet Cameras give optimal image quality at all times through the integration of state-of-the-art backlight compensation (BLC) and enhanced wide dynamic range (WDR) functionality. Varifocal day/night IR technology ensures excellent colour picture quality in day mode and the mechanically controllable IR-Cut filter enables IR-sensitive, crisp, clear monochrome images at night. In addition, an auto back-focus (ABF) feature automatically adjusts a camera’s CMOS position when alternating from colour to monochrome and vice-versa, to ensure the sharpest images possible are always maintained.
Privacy is a vital consideration for all installations and these IP Bullet Cameras have four user-definable privacy zones and video cropping areas are also supported. For operators, multiple user access levels with password protection are configurable through the web browser.
