Outdoor H.265 4-megapixel IR network camera introduction

4-megapixel and H.265 become the trend in today's IP video surveillance industry. Today, we introduce you UNIFORE 4.0 megapixel outdoor IR IP camera offers multiple stream formats include HEVC/H.265, AVC/H.264, MJPEG. The camera incorporates OmniVision high dynamic range 4MP CMOS image sensor, uses the leading HEVC/H.265 video encoding SoC Hi3516D with digital wide dynamic range, 3D noise reduction technology to further enhance the image quality.

The NS4025VB58-D provides 3-megapixel resolution video at 30 frames per second or 4-megapixel resolution at 15 frames per second. The OmniVision OV4689 CMOS image sensor is a high performance 4-megapixel CameraChip sensor in a native 16:9 format designed for next-generation surveillance and security systems. The sensor utilizes an advanced 2-micron OmniBSI-2™ pixel to provide best-in-class low-light sensitivity and high dynamic range (HDR). Using the high dynamic range technology can significantly reduce motion artifacts and lower memory requirement for host processing, while allowing the camera to produce high quality full-resolution 4-megapixel HDR video under extreme variations of bright and dark conditions, ensuring high contrast and excellent scene production.

The security camera employs Hisilicon Hi3516D as its core processor, it offers a maximum of 5-megapixel resolution for H.264/H.265 encoding. In addition to DWDR and 3D noise reduction, it enables camera to provide anti-flicker, HLC, BLC, Gamma correction, color enhancement, digital image stabilizer, Anti-fog, Lens distortion correction, 90 degree/270 degree image rotation, image mirror and flip, motion detection, smart video analytics, Region of interest smart encoding etc features.

The NS4025VB58-D is a weatherproof IP66 security camera, the camera has an exclusive sleek white color metal housing, can be equipped with motorized zoom lens (2.8mm-12mm), also can be powered by DC 12V or Power over Ethernet (IEEE802.3af), offering fast and easy installation.  Including three pieces high efficient infrared array LEDs, the camera's night vision range reaches up to 50 meters.  Having an IR-Cut filter built-in, the camera can provide superior color reproduction image in the daytime, while owns high light sensitivity at night. This camera comes with audio input and audio output interface, can connect with a speaker and a microphone, offering 2-way audio intercom and video+audio sync recording.
