Forward Vision CCTV MIC1–300-IP from Computer Network Ltd

Product Profile

The new Forward Vision CCTV MIC1-300-IP dome camera will be launched by Computer Network Limited (CNL) at IIPSEC 2004.  The camera, affectionately known in the industry as Metal Mickey® was made famous by the Channel 4 series Big Brother.

The PTZ camera is a unique concept in dome construction, designed to be completely weatherproof to IP68.  This enables it to be used as a submersible unit.  As an IP version, the camera can be connected directly to a network and viewed and controlled remotely using internet explorer.  It also uses industry standards so it is easily integrated into existing analogue systems as well as digital security and surveillance solutions.  Images are high quality and can be viewed and recorded simultaneously.

The camera can be mounted in any attitude, including top of pole mounting which is not possible with many conventional dome designs.  The materials used and the method of construction render the unit virtually vandal-proof. The dome has an integrated telemetry control with presets and continuous rotation as standard.  A built in high resolution colour camera and lens unit with optical zoom and digital enhancements complete the design making it virtually a "plug and play" device thus cutting installation time to an absolute minimum.
