Arecont Vision Costar Contera™ Outdoor Dome

Product Profile

The Contera™ Outdoor Dome megapixel camera features 1080p and 5-megapixel (MP) resolution for optimum performance. The Contera Outdoor Dome combines a day/night mechanical IR cut filter with an integrated motorised remote focus and zoom precision iris (P-iris) lens for excellent, optimal image quality.

Regardless of the time of day, the Contera Outdoor Dome is prepared for any lighting condition. For applications with poor lighting conditions, Enhanced WDR™ (wide dynamic range) at 120dB provides the best visual balance to shaded and bright light conditions.

For clear colour images in low-light, NightView™ offers strong low-light sensitivity for capturing details in extremely poor-lit scenes. Built-in Smart IR LED illumination automatically adjusts output in response to the distance of an object in view to prevent over-exposure when the object is very close to the camera. 

The Contera Outdoor Dome is ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) Profile S and G compliant, providing interoperability between network video products regardless of manufacturer.
