Introduction
1.1 Highlights of your new Network IP Camera
This Vandal Dome network camera provides super image quality and remarkable
bandwidth efficiency. The camera supports H.264 High Profile, Main Profile, and
Baseline Profile video stream compression technology. With H.264 higher video
compression performance, the file size of transmitted video stream is extremely
reduced so as to optimize the network bandwidth efficiency.
This Vandal Dome network camera has up to 15M IR illumination distance. It offers
true day/night function to maintain clear images 24 hours a day. The build-in Micro
SD card slots provides a convenient and portable storage option for local storage of
event and schedule recordings in case of network disconnection.
This Vandal Dome network camera has 3-AXIS design. User can adjust image flat
horizontal surface no matter what ceiling point of view.
This Vandal Dome network camera is equipped with PoE (Power over Ethernet)
IEEE802.3af, allowing power and signals to be transmitted over the same cable, thus
eliminating the need to install a separate power source for each camera.
