2.1 Megapixel 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 framer per second for live and monitoring.
Dual Codecs (H.264, MJPEG) with Simultaneous Multi-Stream
The cameras allow you to optimize your bandwidth usage, by offering simultaneous streaming. This allows you to stream high resolution for live monitoring and motion events, and setup a lower resolution streaming profile for when no activity is detected. This allows the camera to seamlessly transition between low and high resolution streams to maximize bandwidth usage, reduce network traffic and improve your overall system’s performance and power.
TDN [True Day/Night] with IR Cut Filter
During daylight, the IR cut filter allows visible light to pass through, reflecting the unwanted infrared light. In low light environments, where artificial or external light is not available, the cut filter is removed from in front of the lens, allowing the camera to capture the infrared light that given out from the infrared LEDs, to capture as much light as possible to produce brighter images.

Web Server Built-in
The camera's built-in Web server allow the camera to operate independently with no need for additional software or hardware connection. The camera's video, settings and configuration can all be accessed using its network connection and via a web browser.
