VIVOTEK releases 5-megapixel box-type security cameras IP8172/72P

Product Profile

VIVOTEK has announced its first 5-Megapixel box cameras IP8172 and IP8172P (with P-iris lens). The 5-Megapixel box cameras deliver 1080p Full HD video to meet the requirements of even the most demanding surveillance applications. With its introduction of the IP8172 and IP8172P, VIVOTEK now fields a comprehensive line-up of 5-megapixel security cameras, which also includes fisheye, fixed dome, and bullet models. 

In addition to their high-resolution video capabilities, VIVOTEK's new cameras offer a full complement of other features to enhance picture quality and extend functionality. Built-in focus assist allows users to adjust focus precisely, while the IP8172P's P-iris lens utilizes a built-in stepper motor to maintain the lens iris at an optimal aperture even when lighting conditions change, for superior clarity and depth of field. Both models provide WDR enhancement to ensure detail is captured throughout the field of view even when both bright and dimly illuminated areas are present. Multiple streams support, SD/SDHC/SDXC card storage, and bundled 32-channel recording software add further to these cameras' appeal. 

Director of Brand Business at VIVOTEK, William Ku, stated, "We're extremely pleased to offer our customers these new cameras. The incredible Full HD picture quality will make challenging surveillance applications like monitoring crowds in wide-open spaces such as train stations or shopping malls much easier and reliable. And we're equally happy that the IP8172 and IP8172P now make our line-up of 5-megapixel security solutions complete."
