MEGApix® 2.1MP 30X Pan Tilt Zoom Dome IP Camera
Model: DWC-MPTZ30X
The MEGApix® 30x PTZ Camera delivers crystal-clear 2.1 Megapixel (1080p) resolution video at real-time 30fps and Smart IR™ up to 1300ft (400m). The camera features 30x optical zoom, 16x digital zoom and 0~360° endless pan in an IP66 weather resistant dome housing. A wall mount and ceiling mount are available, sold separately and necessary to complete the camera's installation.

Tampering-Resistant Pan, Tilt, Zoom Domes
Digital Watchdhog® PTZ cameras use up to 30x optical zoom lens, which uses the internal glass elements of the lens to bring an image in closer and records over the entire digital sensor of the camera at full resolution. Combined with additional 16x digital zoom, the camera offers clear zoom up to 480x times. 
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.
Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)
Wide Dynamic Range technology mechanically allows capturing an entire scene in challenging lighting conditions. One shutter is set to a short exposure, capturing the bright areas in the FoV, while the other is set for a long exposure, capturing the dark areas in the FoV. The camera then interlaces the images and combines them, capturing both areas with no loss of detail. This allows for an image capture even when there are very bright and dark areas in the camera’s field of view or images are distorted by a strong backlight.
