Full featured Multi-Megapixel IP Video doesn't have to be expensive and it doesn't have to be an IP-only solution. StarDot's new NetCam SC gives you the best of both worlds in a compact and easy to configure package. Although the SC5 boasts a whopping 5 megapixel image sensor, it can be run at any resolution including HD (1080P & 720P), portrait and widescreen modes.
Even at standard CCTV resolution, NetCam SC will produces a much higher quality image than any CCTV camera. This is due to StarDot's integrated downsampling and intelligent video processing. NetCam SC's image processing technology is built upon fourteen years of StarDot digital camera design and production.
Why Video Out on an IP Camera?
A big shortcoming of most IP cameras is they can only be viewed with a computer on a network. While this is the whole point of IP cameras, it doesn't exactly sit well with the installer aiming and focusing the camera on top of a ladder. With NetCam SC, you can view the video output on any standard video monitor (including handheld LCD monitors).
What's So Special About Auto Iris Support?
On a standard CCTV camera, not much. To be able to use the widest range of lenses, auto iris support is important. Yet virtually no megapixel or multi-megapixel IP camera can drive a DC auto iris lens (other manufacturers skirt the problem with costly dual sensor / dual lens systems or they simply drive the lens wide open but do not regulate the iris).
Day/Night IR Filter on a Megapixel Camera?
The NetCam SC was specifically designed to bring in all the standard features of the analog CCTV world and combine them with multi-megapixel video. This includes a mechanical day/night IR cut filter that allows the camera to go into IR mode at night. Add an IR illuminator and now you clearly read license plates at night, even with the headlights aiming into the camera.
Unprecedented Video Quality
Unlike other IP camera companies, StarDot's history is deeply embedded in digital image processing. We didn't take a network device and simply throw in some imaging hardware. We packed fourteen years of digital image processing into our StarDot Imaging Engine™ processor and combined it with network hardware specifically designed for video transmission, The end result is that the clarity, color balance and low light performance of the NetCam SC video is light years ahead of the pack.
Simple Yet Powerful
You don't have to be an IT professional to configure and use the NetCam SC-- we've simplified the set up process and viewing the camera is as simple as typing an IP address in your web browser. If for any reason you do have any questions, technical support is a phone call away.
If you're the type of person who likes to get under the hood, the NetCam SC offers a lot. It is essentially a computer with an embedded high resolution camera. It runs the popular uClinux OS and is full of open source and open standards. The NetCam SC can be customized for any application.
The ability to manage and record video content is the heart and soul of any video surveillance system. That's why the NetCam SC series is supported by a large and growing number of NVR and DVR partners, including On-Net Surveillance (OnSSI), Milestone Systems, Digiop Technologies, LuxRiot, Alnet Systems, Exacq Technologies, JDS, Stanley Security, Toshiba and Video Insight.
