30x Optical zoom

The optical zoom lens uses internal glass elements to bring an image up to 30x closer, allowing the magnified image to be recorded at full resolution.

3-part insert bubble

DW’s unique 3-part insert bubble has a special lens and IR bubble block and a special black IR bubble, which act together to dramatically reduce IR reflections from entering the lens.

Up to 100° Tilting Angle

The camera’s tilting capabilities allow it to cover up to 10° below the horizon line. The result is up to 100° tilting angle, covering any blind spots in the far background, with no image distortion.

Compact size

With a re-imagined board at the base of the camera, you can capture the power of a pan, tilt and zoom camera in a small and light housing that can be installed both indoors and outside.

Smart IR™

Smart IR™ adjusts the image for IR cameras to prevent excessive illumination on objects that are in the front of the scene and offers a clear image in B/W without any loss of detail.
