WV-CP280 Description


New High-Performance DSP Superb Image Quality and Cost Performance Colour Camera

The stylish new WV-CP280 Series colour camera is equipped with a newly-developed DSP, providing improved image quality.

Utilizing the Adaptive Black Stretch technology, the DSP uses image processing to transform dark areas into natural, high contrast images in real time, while keeping crisp areas unchanged.

Horizontal resolution is 540 TV lines in colour mode. Minimum illumination intensity is 0.8 lux in colour mode with the F1.4 lens. This is due to the new DSP and the introduction of a new circuit. Signal-to-Noise ratio under low-light intensity has been improved. Furthermore, it is equipped with a Day/Night feature, allowing use in low-light situations*.

The camera is equipped with various features including Back Light Compensation (BLC), Automatic Light Control (ALC) and Electronic Light Control (ELC) for a wide-range of installation environments.

Three selectable synchronization modes include Internal, Line-locked and Multiplexed Vertical Drive (VD2) synchronization. The camera supports 220 ~ 240 V AC (WV-CP280) and 24 V AC/12 V DC (WV-CP284) power supplies.

With a host of new and improved features, the WV-CP280 Series is the ideal camera for offices, retail locations, restaurants and shopping malls.
