STAR-LIGHT™ 12X Pan, Tilt, Zoom Camera
Model: DWC-PTZ12X
Our STAR-LIGHT™ Series offers super low light imaging for any application. Along with Smart Digital Noise Reduction, our Star-Light™ technology offers a slow shutter feature that increases the length of time the shutter remains open to collect additional ambient light illuminating typically dark environments.

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.
Motorized Zoom Auto-Focus Lens
An Auto Focus lens with motorized zoom removes the need for the complicated and detailed manual focus adjustment or zoom configurations at the camera. The motorized zoom module allows you to adjust the camera's view and zoom remotely, without the need to be near the camera. Then, the autofocus lens communicates with the camera to automatically determine what area of the camera’s FoV should be in focus.
Star-Light™ Super Low Light Technology
Star-Light™ Technology provides crisp clear images in both color and Black and White in extreme low light conditions. Star-Light technology offers a slow shutter feature that increases the length of time the
shutter remains open to collect additional light, illuminating typically dark environments. The technology also utilizes Digital Noise Reduction and Highlight Masking Exposure to enhance the image clarity, offering a clear image in any lighting condition.
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.
