New from Grundig Security, a box camera that offers 50FPS, Full HD video, PoE and on-board storage.
The GCI-K2505B day-night camera is the latest addition to Grundig’s IP range. The IP camera remains in colour mode until 0.03 Lux, before switching to black and white mode, where its sensitivity extends to 0.005 Lux with no extra IR lighting, the firm says. The product uses a 2 Megapixel CMOS sensor with dual shutter and Progressive Scan technology to produce quad video streams. Installers can select a range of resolutions for each video stream. Options include a single, 1080p stream at 50 frames per second (FPS) in H.264 or MJPEG formats; dual streams of 1080p and 720p at 50FPS; and Quad streams of 1080p, 2x 720p and CIF, simultaneously at 25 FPS.
Andreas Franusic, product manager at Grundig, says: “The high ‘frames per second’ rate increases low-light performance and enables real-time video recording from multiple streams simultaneously. The Quad stream technology allows efficient video transmission and storage, whilst saving network bandwidth. The streams can be optimized to suit applications, such as 1080p for NVR recording and lower resolution 720p, D1 or CIF video streams for monitor displays, PCs, tablets and smartphone viewing.”
The product is ONVIF S compatible, comes with a micro SD/SDHC memory card slot for alarm and scheduled image recording and has a power over Ethernet (PoE IEEE 802.3af) option, so no separate power supply is required.
The camera’s video format is 16:9, which can be rotated through 90 degrees to provide portrait (corridor view) or landscape views. It has motion detection built-in and five privacy zones. Image quality has been further enhanced with ATW, WDR and DNR functionality.
