Look to Basler network IP cameras when common CCTV and web cameras just aren’t up to the task. This camera delivers superior image quality. It is loaded with the features and flexibility that enable top performance.

Due to its Sony CCD sensor and integrated day/night functionality using a retractable IR-cut filter, this VGA network camera is exceptionally light sensitive and especially useful for security surveillance in low light situations. It has an extremely fast frame rate (100 fps using H.264) for capturing action. Its large 5.6 micron pixels capture excellent images without the need for a high-end lens.

Basler IP digital cameras have built-in video compression so that live video may be efficiently streamed across Ethernet. Configure for MJPEG, MPEG-4, or H.264 compression. These cameras are ideal for use in Intelligent Transportation Systems, building surveillance, and remote processing monitoring.

The camera’s metal housing is compact and robust. It has a CS type lens mount with DC iris drive for compatibility with a lens of your choice. An external signal can be used to trigger immediate image capture. Use the built-in microSDHC card slot for local file storage of up to 32 MB of data.

Image settings include automatic gain, exposure area, backlight compensation, white balance, electronic shutter, image rotation, anti-flicker, electronic PTZ via AOI, text overlay, privacy masks, motion detection, and multiple Areas of Interest.

Video streaming features include multi-encoding and multi-streaming for MJPEG, H.264, and MPEG-4; VBR and CBR for MJPEG and MPEG-4, VBR, CBR, and CVBR for H.264, multicast and unicast.

There is a ring buffer for pre and post alarm images with microSDHC card slot for local storage. Alarms can be triggered by motion detection or external input. Images can be uploaded over FTP, email, or HTTP.

Basler offers a free plug-in that enables remote camera monitoring and control via the Internet Explorer web browser. This camera is compatible with National Instruments LabView, as well as over twenty different video recording solutions.
