2.1 MP Indoor/Outdoor Universal HD over Coax® Low-Profile Dome Camera with IR

Model: DWC-V7253WTIR

Star-Light™ Universal HD over COAX® cameras deliver crystal-clear images and support real-time 30fps HD-Analog, HD-TVI, HD-CVI at 2.1MP and CVBS at 960H. The vandal dome cameras are IP66 rated and include CleanView™ dome treatment, that repels water, dust and grime. Star-Light™ Universal HD over Coax® cameras are engineered to work with our VMAX A1™ Universal HD over Coax® DVRs using your existing Coax infrastructure for a cost-effective, high resolution surveillance solution.


Universal HD Coax® Technology supports All
HD-Analog and All Analog to 960H
The Universal HD® Complete Solutions are the best way to upgrade an existing analog solution to high definition. Universal HD supports HD-Analog, HD-TVI, HD-CVI and CVBS analog signals to 960H.



Star-Light™ Super Low Light Technology
Star-Light™ Technology provides crisp clear images in both color and Black and White in extreme low light conditions. Star-Light technology offers a slow shutter feature that increases the length of time the shutter remains open to collect additional light, illuminating typically dark environments. The technology also utilizes Digital Noise Reduction and Highlight Masking Exposure to enhance the image clarity, offering a clear image in any lighting condition.


Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)
Wide Dynamic Range technology mechanically allows capturing an entire scene in challenging lighting conditions. One shutter is set to a short exposure, capturing the bright areas in the FoV, while the other is set for a long exposure, capturing the dark areas in the FoV. The camera then interlaces the images and combines them, capturing both areas with no loss of detail. This allows for an image capture even when there are very bright and dark areas in the camera’s field of view or images are distorted by a strong backlight.
