From Honeywell's equIP® Series of IP-based products, the HCD5HIH is a high definition,
True Day/Night network camera that offers the latest in digital video surveillance. The
HCD5HIH 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 HCD5HIH supports the PSIA specification for
interoperability between network video products.
The HCD5HIH 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 mode 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 HCD5HIH 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 HCD5HIH features analog video out for aiming and focusing during setup.
The HCD5HIH 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 does not
exist, the unit can also be powered directly from 24 V AC.
The HCD5HIH is a network surveillance solution designed for object recognition that is
required 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. This provides
optimum performance for indoor applications, as well as outdoor applications when
using an environmental housing.
