Meet a Variety of Recording Requirements at a Low Cost
The Illustra Essentials Gen4 Varifocal Miini-Dome camera offers resolutions up to 1080p with IR illumination to manage low light scenes. The affordable cameras capture video in a variety of lighting conditions with features such as True Day/Night and Wide Dynamic Range to fulfill security operators’ expectations, all while maintaining a lower price point.
The camera includes the latest compression technologies by supporting both H.265 and H.264 codecs resulting in reduced bandwidth and storage requirements. To aid ease of setup all Essentials Gen4 models support one-touch auto-focus, and the varifocal models provide motorized zoom.
Rated IP67 for an additional degree of environmental protection, the Varifocal Mini-Dome exceeds previous generations of Illustra Essentials cameras.
The Essential Gen4 Varifocal Mini-Dome also features corridor mode which allows cameras to maximize video surveillance in narrow vertical situations. Ideal for hallways, retail aisles, and tunnels this mode creates a unique high quality, vertical video.

Record Video with Low Light Clarity
Poor low-light performance by megapixel cameras hampers some of the most important tasks security professionals need to perform.
Cameras that fail in low light clarity negatively impact both the necessary functions of security and cost of ownership.
The sensitive processor and sensor combination on the Essentials Gen4 2MP Varifocal Mini-Dome switches the camera automatically between color and black and white mode in a feature known as True Day/Night. Regardless of the ambient illumination level, the camera is able to maintain crystal clear images in low light scenarios.

Balance Images with Wide Dynamic Range
The difference in extreme lighting within a scene is known as dynamic range. Cameras with the Wide Dynamic Range functionality have special software that allows them to balance foreground and background lighting for one clear image. This makes them ideal for recording areas like store entrances where the contrast between the sunshine outside and the dim lighting inside can be extremely difficult to record.
The Illustra Essentials 2MP Varifocal Mini-Dome camera takes advantage of the latest pixel-by-pixel dynamic range offered today.
Maintain facial details with whole scene clarity by working within the megapixel lens to enhance the precision of the images for a highresolution HD solution that excels in an array of challenging lighting conditions.
