American Dynamics™ launches the powerful & economical Discover Wide Dynamic Range Mini-Dome Camera

Product Profile

The Discover series of Mini-Domes delivers a vandal resistant solution at a non-vandal resistant price.  This series of high performance Mini-Domes includes high impact, vandal resistant dome housings built to withstand even the harshest environments.  Unlike other dome housings in the industry, which are made of metal, the Discover series housing is made with extremely durable composite and polycarbonate materials that have "shape memory".  The Discover housing comes with a choice of clear or tinted vandal resistant bubbles and includes a bubble liner to make it more covert.  An advanced pivoting axis lets you position the camera at exactly the angle you need, while optimal white balance provides the clearest, most colour-perfect images possible.

With three different types of mini-domes to choose from, there's a Discover solution just right for your particular requirements.

The Discover High Resolution Mini-Dome has 540 TVL and also includes a user-selectable Night-Saver mode.

The Discover Standard Resolution camera offers a cost effective solution for the value-conscious with 330 TVL.

The Discover Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) Mini-Dome has:

  • 504 lines of resolution and a pixel-by-pixel shutter speed that lets you see better in areas where both very bright and dark areas exist, such as an entranceway or loading dock.
  • 2x digital zoom to get an even closer view of the action.
  • Night-Saver mode improves performance in low light situations, automatically switching from colour to monochrome as light dims and reverting back to colour once light is restored.
  • DVR-Saver mode which helps conserve valuable hard drive space, reducing the size of video files by up to 30% when used with an Intellex® Digital Video Management System.
