The CSI/SPECO CVC-745TP Color Vandal-resistant Dome Camera with Fixed Lens is a simple and effective video surveillance camera for more high-risk and exposed areas. Designed with the potential of vandalism and harsh weather in mind, the CVC-745TP camera is housed in a dome constructed of an all-black, high-impact dome cover and heavy-duty metal base. This camera not only provides high-quality images at high-resolutions with excellent light sensitivity, but does so in a weather-proof and extremely tamper-resistant fashion. Easy to install, the CVC-745TP is designed for both indoor and outdoor use, and is ideal for secure surveillance at home or a small business where it is exposed to the elements, as well as in potentially hostile environments such as prisons, security entrances or restricted areas.

This camera utilizes a 0.25-inch color CCD (charge-coupled device) sensor, with a resolution of 512-by-492 pixels or 350 TVL (TV lines). The CVC-745TP includes a 3.6mm fixed lens that allows this camera to receive a picture down to a minimum illumination of one Lux, and has a better-than 48 dB S/N (signal to noise) ratio. The unit's electronic shutter with an exposure time ranging from 1/60 to 1/100,000 of a second helps ensure an even higher picture quality. Powered via a 12-volt external DC power supply (included), it can operate in temperatures from -14 to 122-degrees Fahrenheit.

Technical Features:

  • Sensitivity: down to 1 Lux
  • S/N ratio: more than 48 dB
  • Resolution: up to 512 by 492 pixels or 350 TVL
  • Operating temperature: -14 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Dimensions: approximately 5 x 3.5 x 5 inches (W x D x H)
For ultra-secure surveillance, the CSI/SPECO CVC-745TP provides you with a reliable, easy-to-use and high-quality camera that can complement most any monitoring system. Quick and easy to install, this weather-proof dome camera comes completely assembled and ready to use. Users should note that the CCD sensor may become permanently damaged if exposed to long hours of direct sunlight or halogen light.

About Surveillance Camera Technical Features
Lux rating is the measurement used to indicate how sensitive a camera is to light, and stands for the level of light reflected off a piece of paper by a candle from one meter away. Thus a sensitivity of three Lux would mean a camera could generate an acceptable picture of a piece-of-paper-sized object that was illuminated by the equivalent of three candles from one meter away. The lower the Lux level, the better the camera's ability to work in low-light conditions. The camera's resolution should be greater than or equal to the resolution supported by the system's recorder or monitor. The S/N, or signal to noise ratio, is an important measure of a camera's quality. A poor camera, low-light conditions or poor wiring causes "noise" which consumes processing power and disk space. A camera with a wide dynamic range is ideal, especially for recording areas in which both indoor and outdoor light are present. CCD (charge-coupled device) sensors provide high-quality images that are less susceptible to noise. CMOS (complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor) sensors offer less image quality, but are usually more cost-effective and energy efficient.

About Dome Cameras
A dome camera is one of the most common indoor security camera styles. Mounted on the ceiling, and often built to be tamper-resistant, dome cameras are designed to be visually appealing and more secure than other types of security cameras. A true dome camera enables a continuous 360-degree pan and 90-degree tilt operation, providing for extensive room coverage. One disadvantage of dome cameras is that they usually are not suitable for low-light conditions and must be used in well-lit areas.
