OSD (On Screen Display) set-up & RS 232 control
Camera is easily programmed using OSD and menu, all camera functions and information may be displayed on monitor for easy installation, title, exposure mode, data, white balance, chroma, hue, gamma, BLC windows/size/weighting/level, aperture correction gain......etc., all are stored in camera's memory. All camera functions may be controlled via back panel buttons or RS232 (RS485 option).

Built-In Alpha-Numeric character generator.
The camera ID may be up to 20 characters, has a 5 step range of brightness and contrast for readability, ID may be positioned in any corner.

High Sensitivity with MicroLens on pixels.
"Super HAD CCD" technology from SONY reduces, as far as possible the in-effective areas between the on-chip microlenses formed over each pixel, and thus further increases the efficiency of utilisation of the incident light to provide higher sensitivity and improved signal:noise ratio.

1/3" 315 444 element Super HAD CCD Sensor: 0.5 lux at F1.2 Sensitivity, 500 + line Horizontal Resolution.

Updated SS-1M SONY chipset.
Uses updated "SS-1M" SONY chipset technology to ensure crisp, sharp, natural colour images and optimum light control using a new algorithm, wide range auto tracing white balance 2 000 ~ 18 000 degrees Kelvin with the capability to simulate chromatic correction function of the human eye plus artificial intelligent auto/manual exposure system.

SONY technology is complemented with manufacturer's proprietary digital camera 16 bit microprocessor and sophisticated On-Screen Display software for easy set-up and remote communication.

Built-In Colour Pattern Generator.
For easy monitor adjustment and fault finding.

Advanced Digital ATW (Auto Tracing White Balance).
Advanced 8 Mode white balance control. Conventional Automatic White Balance processes colour according to the average colour of all objects, if a large area of the image is one colour colour reproduction will be unbalanced. In order to simulate the human eye/brain which has a chromatic correction function, the advanced auto tracing function used in this camera is capable of detecting absolute colour temperature and trace white in most conditions and reproduce an excellent colour image. The colour temperature range is 2 000 ~ 18 000 degrees Kelvin.

Versatile Exposure System Shutter and/or Iris.
Four exposure modes controlled by DSP to change electronic shutter speed automatically, the range of AES (Automatic Electronic Shutter) can vary continuously from 1/50 ~ 1/100 000 second and the AI (Automatic Iris) DC Lens iris is controlled in response to light on CCD to ensure optimum exposure. The AES and AI modes may be used to reduce blurring of motion under appropriate lighting conditions. The manual exposure is mainly for industrial imaging together with manual gain to suit special applications.

Intelligent digital Automatic BLC (Back Light Compensation).
This intelligent automatic BLC divides the full screen into 225 (14 V x 15 H) windows, size and position of backlight compensation area can be modified to meet demands of application, the weighting of each area can be set respectively and the range of BLC may be adjusted up to 10 times.

Super AGC (Automatic Gain Control).
The super AGC function more effectively improves the sensitivity and flexibility compared to conventional AGC. In surveillance applications the super AGC automatically boosts the video signal gain by 6 dB over the AGC range, so the subject under low light illumination may be more clearly recognised.

Digital Horizontal and Vertical Aperture Correction.
This camera employs a digital aperture enhancer, this feature improves image sharpness and ideal for situations where the object merges into a similar colour/shade background, moreover it is also effective for VCR recording providing crisp sharp images.

Variable luminance and chromma gamma/knee correction.
The luminance and chroma gamma may be varied from 0.1 to 1, this adjustment of gamma and knee can satisfy demanding and personal tastes, a gamma suppress function has been applied, this reduces the noise in dark portions of image.
