Security Products from Siemens has just launched a new range of IP Bullet Cameras for end users

Security Products from Siemens has introduced a new range of “innovative” IP Bullet Cameras. Available in two variants – designated the CCPW3025-IR (3 Megapixel version) and the CCPW5025-IR (5 Megapixel version) – these ‘Best in Class’ devices feature “industry-leading image resolution and quality” designed to deliver the clearest possible images for end users under both day and night scenarios.

Suitable for use indoors or outdoors, installation of these IP Bullet Camera models is simple. The installer or integrator working on behalf of the end user simply needs to mount the cameras with a bracket that offers a choice of three distinct positions and then add power and a network connection.

Power can even be supplied via the IT network infrastructure through an in-built Power over Ethernet (PoE) option.

Robust, reliable and suitable for a wide variety of applications, the cameras and their 3-9 mm motorised lenses are built into a permanently sealed IP66-rated weather-proof enclosure. Even in extreme environments, with temperatures ranging from -40°C to +50°C, performance and continuity of operation is “guaranteed”.

These advanced features are complemented by H.264 and MJPEG dual encoding, including Context-adaptive binary arithmetic coding that results in “exceptional” video encoding performance. Further, ONVIF Profile S compatibility allows seamless integration with third party systems.

Optimal image quality at all times

The 3 Megapixel IP Bullet Camera offers a resolution of 2048 x 536P at 15 frames per second (fps) and 1920 x 1080P at 25 fps, while the 5 Megapixel version provides end users with 2592 x 1944P at 12 fps and 1920 x 1080P at 25 fps.

Both variants boast bi-directional audio input/output. On-board storage can be configured using a micro SDHC/SDXC card of up to 64 Gb for local alarm recording.

These Siemens IP Bullet Cameras afford end users “optimal image quality at all times” through the integration of state-of-the-art backlight compensation and enhanced Wide Dynamic Range functionality.

Varifocal day/night IR technology ensures “excellent” colour picture quality in day mode while the mechanically controllable IR-Cut filter enables IR-sensitive “crisp, clear monochrome images” at night.

In addition, an auto back-focus feature adjusts a given camera’s CMOS position when alternating from colour to monochrome and vice-versa in order to ensure the sharpest images possible are always maintained.

Privacy is, of course, a vital consideration for all installations. Interestingly, these IP Bullet Cameras developed by Siemens boast four user-definable privacy zones while video cropping areas are also supported.

For operators, multiple user access levels with password protection are configurable through the web browser.
