Optica’s complete line of megapixel network cameras have been designed to provide world-class image quality and are manufactured with advanced professional features included on every camera model.
Learn why Optica cameras are the first choice of security professionals worldwide.
FULL HD VIDEO RESOLUTION
All Optica network cameras are “Full HD”, streaming 1080p (200 series) or 720p (100 series) high-definition video at 30 frames per second. To maximize image quality, clarity, and performance, every camera is equipped with a Progressive Scan 1/2.7” CMOS sensor and megapixel-rated lens.
WIDE DYNAMIC RANGE
What’s the use of incredible image quality if important details are hidden in the shadows?
Security professionals value the ability of Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) to considerably lessen the overexposure effect of harsh and/or conflicting lighting conditions. In strongly backlit or complex lighting environments, WDR is often a necessity to recognize facial features, read text on objects/vehicles, and view details in otherwise dark or shadowed areas of a scene.
Every Optica camera includes WDR as a standard feature, with three different exposure settings to ensure optimal image detail.
MICROSD ON-BOARD STORAGE
MicroSD card holder serves as an excellent back-up method for storing video in case of a network failure or drop. In the event that network connectivity is lost, the Network Failure Detection (NFD) setting that can trigger the MicroSD card to begin recording. For some applications, recording locally to a MicroSD card is a viable alternative to recording to an NVR or VMS Server.
All Optica cameras include a MicroSD card slot for on-board local recording, and support MicroSD cards up to 32GB.
Tamper detection is an important security feature that enables the camera to send alerts when it detects covering or obstruction, change in lens focus, or change in camera view.
These types of sudden camera view changes often indicate a crime is in progress. Common camera tampering actions include spray painting of camera lenses or domes and physically moving or knocking a camera to point at a wall or the sky, so as not to record ensuing criminal activity.
This video analytic feature is standard on all Optica cameras.
VERTICAL VIEW MODE
Optica’s innovative Vertical View mode maximizes available camera resolution for vertically-aligned scenes like hallways, retail store aisles, bus & train cabins, parking lot entrances, and street traffic monitoring.
IP camera sensors are typically produced in 4:3 or 16:9 format, meaning there are significantly more pixels horizontally than vertically. By performing an automatic in-camera 90 degree image rotation, this setting allows the camera to use these extra pixels for a corrected, vertical view.
This means better scene coverage and image quality for the important areas of a camera view, while reducing wasted pixels & the storage capacity needed to capture unimportant areas like walls, boxes, signs, trees, or any other unnecessary objects on the wide edges of a scene.
OpticaCMS video management software allows up to 64 channels (cameras) to be recorded and viewed on a single Windows PC or Server, and is provided at no cost with every Optica camera.
OpticaCMS has a complete set of system management features, allowing the operator to configure camera settings, manage recording and storage of camera video, and select from multi-camera live views. Along with a standard video search capability, OpticaCMS includes two advanced, time-saving search features: Motion Detection Event Search and Missing Object Detection Search.
TWO YEAR WARRANTY
Optica provides a two-year warranty on every camera model, starting from date of purchase. Our commitment to camera quality, performance, and reliability has inspired continued trust from security professionals around the world.
For complete Warranty details please refer to the Warranty Policy document included in camera packaging, or contact an Optica reseller.
Some camera models include features that further improve image quality, save installation time, and allow for camera placement in difficult environments.
MOTORIZED VARIFOCAL LENS
The Optica Motorized Varifocal Lens, with 1-push Auto Focus, makes the installation process fast and easy. Simply mount the camera pointed towards the desired field of view, and lens adjustments can then be made from any PC on the network.
After the initial camera installation, zooming in or out for a closer or wider view takes only seconds.
By making lens focus adjustments remotely, either through the 1-Push Auto Focus button or by moving focal steps one by one, the correct focus level can be easily set, ensuring the best image quality possible.
The Motorized Varifocal Lens is found on all Optica “M” models.
Optica’s “Smart IR” setting prevents day/night cameras from returning to “day mode” if high levels of IR light are detected, thereby eliminating over- and under-illuminated images.
“Smart IR” is found on all day/night Optica cameras with on-board IR illuminators.
EXTREME TEMPERATURE PROTECTION
For withstanding extreme cold temperatures below 14F/-10C an additional heater is a necessary camera component. Optica “M” model outdoor cameras are equipped with a built-in heater (must be powered by 12VDC / 24VAC), allowing these cameras to operate in temperatures as low as -40F/-40C (bullet) and -31F/-35C (vandal dome).
