Camera as a System

Mount It.  |  Power It.  |  It Records.


MEGApix CaaS™ edge cameras, powered by DW Spectrum™ IPVMS, function both as a camera and recorder, eliminating the need for a dedicated server. Mount them, add power and they record.
The cameras provide real time 1080p resolution at up to 30fps. An SD card interface supports up to 256GB of local storage. MEGApix CaaS™ cameras also feature Digital Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), true Day/Night, Backlight Compensation, 3D Digital Noise Reduction and Auto Exposure. MEGApix® CaaS™ cameras are easy to install, maintain and adjust for any application.

Powerful DW Spectrum™ IPVMS software is embedded into the CaaS™ camera as an Enterprise Controller and Media Server for local recording and system management. You can record locally on the camera’s edge storage (64GB SD card included), as well as extract and view the video from any DW Spectrum™ client. DW Spectrum™ IPVMS also makes failover recording available when the CaaS™ camera is connected to a network server.

Technology Main Features:

DW Spectrum™ Edge Storage and Management
DW Spectrum’s powerful software is embedded in the CaaS™ and CaaS+™ camera as an Enterprise Controller and Media Server for local recording. This integrates the camera closely with the DW Spectrum™ software, allowing you to record locally on the camera’s edge storage, as well as extract and view the video from any DW Spectrum™ client.
Camera as a System
The MEGApix CaaS Cameras record and can be managed and viewed locally, eliminating the need for a dedicated server. The cameras can automatically discover the network and intelligently setup the network settings to match the network requirements. DW’s CaaS technology allows for unlimited scalability with each camera supporting the other for a network fail-over redundancy with local and network storage support.
1/3” 2.1 Megapixel CMOS image sensor (1080P, 30fps)
Using the state of art video compression engine, the camera delivers real time HD video streams of 1080p resolution at 30 frames per second for live and monitoring.
ONVIF [Open Network Video Interface Forum] Profile S Conformant
A universal protocol that allows IP cameras to communicate with other manufacturer’s recorder. Digital Watchdog’s entire MEGApix camera line is conformant with the latest ONVIF protocol for increased flexibility and reduced total cost.
PoE [Power over Ethernet]
All of DW’s MEGapix cameras support PoE. This feature enabled the camera to receive power via the same network cables it uses to transmit data and video. This simplifies the installation process, requiring only a single cable to power up, configure, and control your camera.
Micro SD/SDHC and SD/SDXC Interface for Local Storage and Recording
MEGApix cameras come with a single or dual micro SD card interface (pending on model) for local recording and running DW Spectrum™ Edge. This allows the camera to become its own data storage, without the need for a dedicated server.
Smart DNR™ 3D Digital Noise Reduction
Smart DNR™ 3D Digital Noise Reduction increases the camera’s clarity in very low light environments by using a unique algorithm to clean electronic noise signals that can reduce the camera’s visibility and trigger false motion detection events. Digital Watchdog’s special noise reduction technology allows the camera to produce clearer images in both color and B/W in low light without creating lag or ghost effects in the image.
True Day/Night with IR Cut Filter (Supported models only)
To get a better image at night, the camera turns on IR cut filter glass when it detects a specific color data in the environment. When this occurs, the image will turn from Color to Black-and-White and vice-versa.
Smart IR™
Smart IR™ adjusts the image for IR cameras to eliminate LED light reflection and white spots in the image. By breaking down the camera’s field of view into five zones, Smart IR allows for even distribution of the IR light. This prevents excessive illumination on images that are in the front of the scene and offers a clear image in B/W without any loss of detail.
