This day/night camera contains an OSD menu and a zoom lens
that gives you 27x optical magnification. Digital zoom can add
10x more to that. A mechanical IR filter protects images during
day and night transitions, especially if you are using a source
of radiant infrared light. A Sony™ 1/4" video sensor and
an Effio™ video processor
deliver super sharp video images at 540-TV lines or better.

Effio™ Video Processor Technology
The Effio video processor sits at the
analog front end (AFE) of the video image capture process. Here
it intercepts signals prior to digital signal processing. This
provides the DSP circuitry with clean and efficient signals that
make its job easier, freeing up space for further enhancements
to be added to the available real estate on the chipset at
micro-component level. These enhancements create higher
resolution and provide more options in the OSD.
Effio video processing depends on a
chain of support circuitry. If the support circuitry is
mismatched it injects noise. Noise un-does the primary purpose
of Effio by destroying image quality at the front end. Some CCTV
camera manufacturers find it profitable to substitute low- cost
generic components. This saves manufacturers big bucks over
large production runs. But engineers know generic parts can make
mismatched support circuits, and that means noise in the signal.
Our engineers specify matched components throughout the entire
design, insuring clean signals and giving this Eclipse camera
PrePro makes it Easy
PrePro stands for Pre-Programmed. Our
engineers have already programmed default settings in the
chipset for optimal performance. That's a lot of words to say
"when you reset the camera to factory default, it's good-to-go
99% of the time."
Of course PrePro doesn't handle every
situation. But it will satisfy a wide variety of users in most
common settings, and the time/cost savings alone make this
camera incredibly attractive for large scale installations.
