VIVOTEK to offer H.264 2-megapixel day & night fixed dome network camera - FD8161

Product Profile

VIVOTEK FD8161 is a professional-series fixed dome network camera featuring superb 2-megapixel image quality and exceptional bandwidth efficiency of H.264 video compression, especially suitable for wide open spaces such as building entrances and airports, or applications requiring accurate identification.

Featuring a 2-megapixel sensor, the FD8161 can provide coverage 6 times more than a VGA camera, making it capable of providing highly detailed images by which users can easily and accurately identify minute objects.  

The FD8161's H.264 support significantly reduces file sizes and conserves valuable network bandwidth. With MPEG-4 and MJPEG compatibility, video streams can be transmitted in either of these formats for versatile applications.

The FD8161 comes with a removable IR-cut filter and IR illuminators for superior image quality around the clock. It is also equipped with a PIR sensor that detects moving objects by their thermal characteristics.

FD8161's tamper detection feature detects data loss from camera tampering in real-time. Its on-board storage SD/SDHC card slot ensures continuous recording.

Additionally, it comes with a recessed design, allowing for cable concealment at the bottom of the camera, and a 3-axis mechanism for flexible installation. Designed for maximum value and performance, the FD8161 is indisputably the top choice for reliable indoor surveillance.

Additional info

The FD8161 supports the latest in H.264 compression technology, drastically reducing file sizes by 90%. The cropping function removes unnecessary information and transmits only the designated image to optimise bandwidth and storage usage, and the ePTZ feature enables users to focus on close-up shots of different areas in the camera's view without moving the camera physically. Together with multiple streams which transmit individually configured video feeds simultaneously for viewing on different platforms, the FD8161 is able to meet a diverse set of needs and bandwidth constraints.
