When you can pair good performance with good price customers take notice. In the highly competitive field of security camera installation that means a lot, and the IPS-577 Black Ops super dome, with Sony™ Effio™ video processing, is just the camera you need to pack that punch.
Sony™ video technology, widely recognized as the most advanced in the world, has been further enhanced in this camera by addition of the Effio™ video processor design. The Effio video processor sits at the analog front end (AFE) of the video image capture process (see simplified diagram at left). Here it intercepts signals prior to digital signal processing. This provides the DSP circuitry with clean and efficient signals that make its job easier, freeing up space for further enhancements to be added to the available real estate on the chipset at micro-component level. These enhancements create higher resolution and provide more options in the OSD menu.
What's in the OSD Menu?
The OSD contains many features and has been designed to be understandable and easy to use. Among the many features you will find the following:
Multiple methods of setting white balance, including PUSH-LOCK (similar to the method used by professional photographers when setting digital camera white balance)
Advanced backlight compensation, including High Light masking
Advanced privacy screening that employs multiple fields with color coding, transparency degrees and mosaicing options
Heavy duty internal 3-dimensional bracket that resists surface-transmitted vibration
Adaptive tone reproduction (an advanced form of WDR) that lets you image a wider range of colors and tones when viewing scenes with high luminance and deep shadows.
Individually adjustable day-to-night and night-to-day transition settings.
