Durable. Tamper proof. Stunning Video Quality.
The WDR technology correctly exposes the video for both dark areas (inside a vehicle) and bright areas (looking out doors and windows). In a mobile environment, WDR virtually eliminates the white out that occurs around vehicle windows on a bright day while maintaining observable details in dark areas.
The correct exposure is calculated for each pixel by an advanced analog to digital converter. A variety of digital signal processing techniques are used for optimal image reproduction before converting the signal back to an analog format to be recorded by the DVR.
The S355 camera is a wide dynamic range camera utilizing Sony imaging technology. The S355 has over 650 TVL of resolution with 24 integrated IR LED’s. The cameras housing is metal and built to survive in rugged and vandal susceptible environments. Vibration and thermal tested, the S355 camera is an excellent choice for both mobile and fixed environments.
Wide Dynamic Range
Sony’s WDR technology provides class leading imaging performance. The image capture and processing system provides high-quality pictures with enhanced dynamic range that significantly improves image quality in scenes consisting of both bright and dark areas.
Camera - Housing Features:
- Integrated Microphone
The Gatekeeper S - Series camera housing includes an integrated microphone allowing high quality audio to be captured at each camera.
The integrated IR utilizes 24 infrared LED’s to provide IR illumination at night. A sensor in the camera detects the ambient light and automatically turns on/of the IR LED’s as needed.
The housing inherently implements a 3D gimbal design found in more expensive cameras. This allows the base to be mounted in almost any orientation while allowing the camera to be adjusted so that the image is correctly oriented.
Tamper Proof Adjustments
Not only is the camera constructed of metal but there are set screws that when tightened, prevents the camera aim from being tampered with. This is important for installation where the camera can be accessed, either due to low ceilings or accessible camera placement.
All Metal Housing
An all metal housing creates a vandal proof package that is resistant to physical damage.
90 Degree Aiming
The housing profile has been carefully designed so that the camera can be aimed 90° laterally and have a clear field of view. This is important for correct aiming when the camera is located at the front of a bus.
Tolerant to Installation Error
The S - Series housing has been designed so that the camera ball cannot be positioned behind the camera’s shroud thus reflecting infrared light back into the lens. This reduces the probability of installation error.
The ball that houses the camera electronics has no vents thus making the camera resistant to water spray.
In order to help reduce camera vibration, a rubber mounting ring is supplied. The rubber ring is installed between the camera base and the mounting surface. The rubber ring conforms to the camera base for easy alignment and quick installation.
