Honeywell’s latest addition to the equIP® Series of IP-based products, the HCD2F is a high
definition, True Day/Night network camera that offers the latest in digital video surveillance.
The HCD2F provides 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution at full frame rate. Progressive scan
technology and 2D edge enhancement provide outstanding clarity and definition. Digital
Noise Reduction (DNR) results in significant storage savings without sacrificing image quality
in low light. The 1/2.7" CMOS network camera combines world-class imaging and camera
technology with the equIP Series IP networking technology, providing streaming H.264 and
MJPEG images with frame rates up to 30 frames per second (25 fps for PAL systems).
The HCD2F supports the ONVIF Profile S specification for interoperability between network
The HCD2F true day/night camera adapts to varying lighting conditions to ensure the
highest picture quality even in extreme low-light conditions. When the light level drops too
low for accurate video identification in color, the camera moves the IR cut filter out of the
optical path and then switches to black and white video to capture more detail using the
CMOS sensor’s increased sensitivity to IR light.
A powerful and intuitive web client allows fine tuning of the camera and the auto iris levels.
This can also be performed from most NVR setup utilities.
The HCD2F supports dual video streams and multiple compression formats.
The compression parameters for the two video streams are independently configurable. The
primary stream is dedicated to H.264. The secondary stream can be configured for H.264
or MJPEG. The HCD2F features analog video out for aiming and focusing during setup.
The HCD2F has built-in Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af), which allows power to be
supplied to the camera using standard network cabling, eliminating the need for a separate
power supply and associated wiring. In situations where PoE support is not available, the
unit can also be powered directly from 24 V AC.
The HCD2F is a network surveillance solution designed for object recognition in
locations where variable and low-light conditions exist. Setup is quick and easy and can
be customized through a web client or from an NVR. The HCD2F provides optimum
performance for indoor applications, as well as outdoor applications when using an
