Arecont Vision Costar Outdoor Bullet Camera

Product Profile

The Contera Bullet outdoor-ready megapixel camera features 1080p and 5-megapixel (MP) resolution for optimum performance.  The Contera Bullet combines a day/night mechanical IR cut filter with an integrated motorized 2.7–12mm varifocal remote focus and zoom precision iris (P-iris) lens. 

Regardless of the time of day, the Contera Bullet 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, and is further enhanced by built-in Smart IR LED illumination that 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 Bullet is ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) Profile S and G compliant, providing interoperability between network video products regardless of manufacturer.
