Vista releases bullet-proof 24-hour camera
London, April 9, 2009
Vista, UK’s leading CCTV (closed circuit TV) brand, has released a long range, integrated bullet-proof camera offering high quality images without the expense of separate lighting, thus extending its external day/night range.
The new VBC5V50DN/LR features a 1/3” super HAD CCD (charge coupled device), which gives 540 TVL (TV lines) (colour) and 580 TVL (monochrome) resolution, while the 5-50mm vari-focal lens allows the installer to choose a 5-49° horizontal angle view.
An integrated photocell activates light emitting diodes (LEDs) for even illumination up to 50 metres and for switching of the IR filter.
Cleverly designed twin glass windows prevent any reflection back into the camera thereby eliminating any image degradation associated with internal reflection of light.
The casing itself is built to IP66 (Ingress protection) ensuring that the camera is highly waterproof. The internal mechanisms are further protected thanks to the external focus and zoom adjustment. This means that the case does not have to be opened for adjustments to be made.
Because the camera comes pre-configured with lens, camera, illumination, housing and bracket, it is quick and easy to fit and install, providing a fully cable managed solution. On the rear of the camera there is a video service plug to assist the installer in setting up the camera.
“The VBC5V50DN/LR is an important addition to the range, providing installers with a long range fully integrated IR bullet camera, to meet specific site requirements,” said Mark Pritchard, divisional director of Vista. – TradeArabia News Service
