i3's HD-over-Coax Am57 camera is designed to use existing coaxial cable infrastructure, while providing exceptional HD image, comparable to megapixel IP cameras. Am57 offers 1080P video resolution when used in combination with HR16v2, while secondary CVBS output can be used for Public View Monitor (PVM) display. The additional advantage of the Am57 is the acceptable coaxial cable distance, which can reach 750 feet, compared to no more than 300 feet CAT5e network cable distance recommended for IP cameras.
This true WDR camera comes with a 2.8 to 12mm motorized varifocal lens, which can be controlled through the camera's built-in OSD menu via Video Pilot Client, Veo16i/p or the encoder's IE interface. Am57 comes with a built-in Smart IR which achieves superior images in low-light condition by automatic LED brightness adjustment depending on the object's distance. This moisture-, dust- and vandal-proof camera is IP67- and IK10-rated, suitable for both indoor and outdoor installations.
The versatility of Am57 IP camera makes it ideal for a range of video surveillance applications. Best suited for use with the i3's NVR in conjunction with HR16v2, the analog encoder.
