The Philips VS8394/11T Color Multiplexer Monitor with 1 Camera provides convenience, versatility, and quality in a robust and complete system. This system allows you to view up to eight camera locations in real-time in various display modes such as full-screen, four simultaneously in quad or up to eight-at-once in a three-by-three matrix. The included camera has automatic picture adjustments, and a built-in motion-sensing function so you won't miss any action. Rich with features such as the ability to record all eight cameras in full-screen while viewing one to eight cameras simultaneously, the Philips VS8394/11T is a complete, self-contained observation solution perfect for everything from home or business security applications, to small- to medium-sized commercial enterprises.

The VS8394/11T's 14-inch color monitor can be operated via its built-in main panel or via a remote control. With a built-in multiplexer, this monitor includes eight camera inputs complete with one-way audio, and one slave-monitor output. (With the addition a Philips VS79015T intercom box (sold separately), this system supports two-way audio.) Also included are an alarm output, a BNC video and RCA audio output for connecting external devices. The VS8394/11T's monitor features support for remote door opening with a snapshot feature for viewing visitors, automatic pop-up of alarm-triggered camera feeds, and event replay with pre- and post-alarm images. This unit also features an intuitive user interface for hassle-free installation and operation. Multi-voltage compatible, the VS8394/11T's monitor runs on 100 to 240-volts of AC power, achieves horizontal resolution of 290 TVL (TV lines) in NTSC, and has an operating temperature of 5 to 45 degrees Celsius.

The camera that comes with the Philips VS8394/11T is a Philips VC7C1305T that utilizes a 0.25-inch color CCD (charge-coupled device) image sensor with a three-millimeter fixed lens. The VC71305T achieves a resolution of 320 horizontal TVL (TV lines) with 510 by 492 effective pixels using the NTSC system. This unit can receive a picture at a minimum illumination of two Lux, and uses a four-pole RJ11E connection for single-cable transmission of video, audio, power and communication. The VC7C1305T camera features automatic gain control, white balance and backlight compensation, as well as an electronic shutter with speeds ranging from 1/50 to 1/100,000 of a second. This camera also features video motion detection (with selectable area and sensitivity), automatic cable-length compensation and an adjustable field of view. The VC7C1305T has a built-in Electret microphone for audio out, runs on 24-volts DC power, and has an operating temperature-range of -10 to 45 degrees Celsius.

Designed primarily for indoor use, the Philips VS8394/11T offers you everything you need in a security surveillance system. This system is intended for use with a professional security recorder, such as a time-lapse VCR or a DVR, in order to take advantage of its recording functionality. The maximum distance cameras can be from the monitor is 600 feet regularly, or 900 feet with the addition of an interface box. Users should note that the CCD image sensors in the cameras may become permanently damaged if exposed to long hours of direct sunlight or halogen light, so the cameras should not be mounted or pointed directly at the sun or other bright-light sources.

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 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 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.
