  • Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)
  • extremely compact and lightweight
  • PoE (Class 0)

The MDF4220HD is a hybrid Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) HD mini box camera.

The camera provides real-time HD video (720p/30) using the H.264 codec, currently, the most advanced standard for high-efficiency video compression and supports resolutions up to 1,3-megapixel. In addition to HD video over IP, the hybrid camera provides for a simultaneous analogue SD (PAL/NTSC) video output via BNC (CVBS).

The HD mini box camera is characterized by its Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) and allows you to capture images with highest colour fidelity and superb detail reproduction even in scenes with a wide range of contrast and strong backlighting. The excellent low light performance also provides for clear and low noise images even in low light conditions.

Equipped with a 1/4" tripod socket located on the top and bottom side, the camera fi ts all standard brackets with UNC threaded screws. Due to its extremely compact design and the included mounting brackets, the mini box camera is also ideally suited for installations in automated teller machines (ATMs).

At a resolution of 720p, the Digital Image Shift1) function additionally provides for a subsequent digital fine alignment of the image section, which additionally guarantees for a straightforward installation process of the camera.

Depending on the requirements, the camera can be conventionally supplied with 12V DC or conveniently operated via Power over Ethernet (PoE Class 0, IEEE 802.3af) which allows for an easy, quick and cost-effective cabling and commissioning.
