Challenging lighting conditions

Regardless of time-of-day, this camera is ideal for applications with challenging lighting conditions. The series combines a day/night mechanical IR cut filter with an integrated P-iris lens for precise, optimal image quality. For applications with poor lighting conditions optional wide dynamic range is available on some 1080p and 3MP models. For challenging low-light color images without IR, the 1.2MP STELLAR™, “Spatio Temporal Low Light Architecture” model offers best-in-class light sensitivity capturing details in near-complete darkness. For additional low light capabilities, Binning Mode is available on 3MP and 5MP camera models.

Adjustable infrared illumination

MegaBall G2 IR models are integrated with an Adjustable Infrared Illuminator, providing clear images in extreme, low-light scenes. Infrared camera models offer the ability to manually adjust the IR's level of intensity, providing the flexibility to ensure the scene is illuminated uniformly.

Ease of installation

The camera's interface allows for an intuitive, fast, and easy configuration; while the Free AV IP Utility tool allows users to quickly configure multiple cameras at one time. The MegaBall G2 is ONVIF Profile S (Open Network Video Interface Forum) and PSIA (Physical Security Interoperability Alliance) compliant, providing interoperability between network video products regardless of manufacturer.
