As the camera senses the amount of light in the viewing area, it automatically turns the IR cut filter on and off as required. As more precise color reproduction is essential in the color mode, the filter is turned on. In the black-white mode, clear, bright images are produced by switching the filter off and increasing light.
In addition, this camera incorporates a 2.5x electronic zoom. Activated as an alarm zoom when triggered by an external alarm sensor or as a motion zoom when motion is detected within the field of view, it serves to automatically enlarge surveillance images as a useful function for verification when the unexpected occurs.
While achieving minimum illumination of 1.0 lux or 0.05 lux at max. gain, sensitivity can be further enhanced via the 40x electronic boost for 0.01 lux or 0.00008 lux at F 1.2. Other features include privacy masking, intelligent motion detector and OSD set up menu.
